Comment: One older boy in green shiny 70s shorts playing Baseball. Other boys in jeans. I only noticed this very brief scene. Not sure about his name and age. Maybe even a supporting actor?

Interesting werewolf movie also starring Corey Haim.

For the brief scene rating 3-4 only.

Comment: Some boys (6th graders) in shorts and swim shorts. Not sure about the country pictured, probably Greece in or around 1989. Boys in white, red and black shorts. Black shorts with (2 ?) yellow stripes. Probably some more in shorts and I think also orange shorts. Swim shorts in Dutch colors blue, white and red. Most or all others here in speedos). Not sure about girls.

I don’t remember the original game show and probably only saw the final 1989 and/or 1988 episode in where the winning class won a journey. Not sure if there were also kids in the studio in shorts.

Needs to be rechecked for this and the original show and other colors.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Update: I found some more episodes on VHS labeled with Tunisia, Yugoslavia, Turkey and Soviet Union (Moscow). Probably pic 1 is in Turkey. Pic 2 could be in Tunisia but I still think in Greece. I also remember a scene where they are on an ancient archaelogical site either Greece or Turkey (but probably Greece). At least half of them in shiny shorts.

Comment:
Many school kids in different shorts of different colors, including yellow, red and dark blue, not sure about the fabric. Probably cotton in the 60s and 70s (I think partly b&w anyway). And probably also shiny shorts at least in the (late 80s) and 90s (including black, light green and white but longer, modern shorts).

I’m not East German, so I haven’t seen this series then. And I only have seen some few clips online. Pic 1 clip titled/from  22.08.1982. Pic 2 from an unknown date, maybe later.

Rating at least 5 for now.

Update 4: Meatballs

meatballs-u3emeatballs-u3c

As announced, another, final update of Meatballs. I have checked most of the important scenes more carefully and almost all (Adidas) shorts turned out to be not shiny but of cotton fabric, including the green ones.

I just found an interesting scene at 12 minutes (pic 1) with the young boys. There’s one boy in medium blue, shiny shorts with 4 stripes, also lying on the bed. Another boy in (non-shiny) dark blue Adidas shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy in 70s style red shorts (after 36 minutes) at the parent’s day being embraced.

Pic 3 at 1h21 showing a girl in white (shiny) Adidas and another girl in dark blue shiny 70s shorts. The man, I already had.

Pic 4 showing older teen boys/young men, one in white 70s shorts, one in medium blue sitting, one in orange shorts with red sweat pants underneath and an older teen girl in tight, white shorts.

Unpictured: Another young man in sweat pants underneath at the wrestling scene at 1h11. And another boy in red shorts at 1h21 (rear view, from a distance) next many others. I think, there’s one young boy sitting in black shorts (but from a distance) and maybe also dark yellow shorts (not shiny). So almost all colors, except pink and purple. Not sure about grey ones.

I think, I have to recheck the movie again later at slow speed, especially the audience. Most and best scenes near the end at the different competitions. Main overview entry, rating 8 at

Comment:
At least these older teen boys/young men in medium blue, dark blue and orange shorts. Maybe not all are shiny like the grey ones. Pics from s4e4 “The Team”. Also a man in blue shorts in s4e8. The orange shorts of the blond teen are quite interesting. Is this a boy?

I don’t know all episodes but doubt for much more and better scenes.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl, rating 5).

Rating 2-3 for these brief scenes of older teen boys.

Update 3: Meatballs

meatballs-n2ameatballs-n2b

As announced, some more scenes and pics of this great movie. I think, I have to make one more post, but later.

Pic 1 showing next to the boy in red (non-shiny trunks) a longhaired teen in green shorts at 1h04. Is this a girl? Shorts look shiny. There are more boys, women and young men in green, mainly Adidas shorts but most are not shiny, maybe just one of a young man (high jump scene).

Pic 2 showing a teen boy in beige or maybe white or similar shorts at 1h04. I haven’t noticed other scenes of beige shorts.

Pic 3 showing a young lady in light red, short shorts at around 10 minutes. Bill Murray also in red but I think non-shiny shorts.

Pic 4 a thin, young lady in red Adidas shiny shorts at 17 minutes. But I don’t like her at all. Reminds me of Sleepaway Camp (rating 9).

Rating 5-6 for this scenes. Main entry, rating 8 at

Update 2: Meatballs

meatballs-at36meatballs-at1h21

I now have completely rechecked my DVD. There are much more (shiny) shorts scenes including young women. But mostly young men/ older teen boys. Most colors are red and white. I don’t want too much pics in a single post and will make at least one more update later.

Some very good Adidas shorts (including women), but some aren’t shiny. Also other shorts including jeans shorts. Also few boys in speedos. I think no board shorts.

Pic 1 showing my favourite scene of Rudy at 36 minutes in shiny white 70s style shorts with red boarders. More scenes at the very end (pic 2, a bit wet). He mainly wore jeans shorts.

Pic 2 at 1h21 also showing a boy in red shiny Adidas shorts (with inner briefs) and an older boy in rare, orange Adidas (Handball ?) shorts with dark blue stripes. Brief scene. Also a shirtless older teen boy in dark green Adidas shorts, but probably not shiny.

Pic 3 at 1h17 showing next to 2 older kids in red shorts (is the right one a girl ?) also 2 boys on the left in white and blue shorts. Another spectators also there, dark blue shorts, probably not shiny, another one in red and I think green.

Pic 4 at 17 minutes showing a boy in white shorts (good scenes walking downstairs) and another one on the left in dark blue shorts.

One older teen boy in beige shorts at 1h04 (close up). One older guy wearing sweat pants underneath orange shorts. Also sitting scenes of boys (distance).

As said more pics, including women later. I also found another boy and girl in bib overalls (see my other blog, rating 3).

Notable scenes:

4 minutes, 10, 12, 17, 28, 29, 36, 45, 1h03, 1h04, 1h18, 1h21.

Comment:
Finally some very good shiny Adidas shorts. By coincidence, or better during research, I found this interesting series. (Teen) boys and girls mainly in white shorts. 70s style white shorts with a red stripe and boarders but also already shiny, white Adidas shorts with dark blue stripes, also sitting.

Mainly in the studio doing sports but also other kids outside in other colored shorts like blue and light green (not Adidas).

I don’t know all episodes. ACCESS Network and TVOntario 40×10 minutes.

Rating at least 8 for now. They should release this on DVD.

Comment:
A woman in I think medium blue 70s shorts (not sure if very shiny) and a man shirtless in shiny red shorts.

Very interest movie, novel by Stephen King. Great actors, props and plot (bedroom blog rating 7). But I prefer younger actors.

So rating 2-3 only.

For more infos, see my other blog. For another entry starring Lance Kerwin in blue/red swim shorts and some others in shiny shorts, rating 10, see the TOP#10 rank 4 and
