Update: Dallas (1978)

dallas-s10e3dallas-s9e27s

I have briefly checked several episodes, mainly of seasons 8-12 (and I own seasons 13+14). I found some few more pool scenes of younger Christopher and John Ross. junior and others.

Pic 1 showing Christopher shirtless in brown/colorful or similar wet swim shorts (not shiny) in s10e3 (sitting and also walking rear view, distance). Pic 2 probably John Ross jun. in s9e27 I think in shiny swim shorts (white and black ?). Underwater scenes, also over water but few and brief scenes and distance.

Christopher also in bathing trunks, light blue or similar in s10e5, John Ross jun. in red speedos in s8e2 and a toddler (Eric Farlow as Christopher ??) in dark blue shiny shorts sitting in s8e2. There are probably more swimming scenes (of others, mainly men) in earlier episodes, but I don’t have the time to check all episodes.

Much better, of course, is older Omri Katz in purple shorts (rating 10, TOP#1)

Update: Diff’rent Strokes

diffrentstrokes-s1e22diffrentstrokes-s1e22b

While updating my bib overalls blog, I found 2 more episodes with shorts.

Some teen girls in s1e22. Most shorts might not be shiny including light red, yellow, pink and medium blue. At least 2 girls in dark blue or similar shorts which are probably shiny, also sitting. And one younger girl in tight shortalls.

In s7e22 there’s a shirtless, black teen boy/young man in tight, medium blue shorts.

I don’t like any of those. The girls are quite interesting. Rating ~3-4.

Main entry, rating 3 (older teen boys)

Update: Baywatch (1989)

baywatch-s1e3baywatch-s1e3b

I have briefly checked most episodes of season 1. 2 more and better pics, both from s1e3. Brandon Call and other boys in dark blue, shiny shorts. The rear view of Brandond Call looks somehow a bit strange. Maybe he’s a bit too thin.

Lots of supporting actors especially on the beach but mainly very brief scenes and from a distance.

Most men in red shorts. I have to check the later seasons (Jeremy Jackson and for supporting actors and girls/women).

Main entry, rating 8

Comment: Several boys in shiny shorts and swim shorts at this cancer camp. I mentioned this before and this is my favourite episode. Some shorts are not shiny.

One boy in green Adidas shorts in the pool also outside jumping into it (but brief scenes).

Double episodes s2e1+2. I think very few shorts scenes in s2e1.

Comment: At least one teen boy in red 70s shorts (pic 1 from ep 1, maybe some others in other shorts), 2 boys in rare orange, light brown or similar shorts (pic 2 from ep 8) and one older teen boy in red, maybe Adidas shorts (pic 3 from ep 1, briefly and partial shown). Unfortunately both YouTube clips have a quite poor image quality. I already have corrected the colors.

Correct title Racheta albă. Novel by Ludovic Roman.

Rather few good scenes.

So rating 3-4 only.

Also an older teen boy in bib overalls (soon on my other blog, rating 3).

Comment: Mainly or only some older teen girls/young ladies in dark blue shorts. Obviously playing Volleyball and or PE. I think rather few good scenes. Not sure about teen boys.

Although I own this season on DVD, I rarely watch it and can’t remember this scenes. So needs to be rechecked. Currently, season 5 is being aired.

Some much better shorts and swim shorts scenes in other episodes like at camp. Great 80s series but rather few episodes with shiny shorts.

Main entry, rating up to 7 at

Heidi und Erni – ep. 27

heidiunderni-ep27at3heidiunderni-ep27c

Originally, I just wanted to upgrade some pics on my Lederhosen blog (soming soon) and so I found some more great shiny shorts scenes. All from episode 27, which is also the best showing boys in Lederhosen (long and tight+short). How could I miss this scenes/episode?

Unfortunately, the scenes are short, and in the series, boys and men are mainly in the distance and rather few (good) scenes.

Pic at at the beginning showing a boy in tight, light blue shorts (also rear view later, shorts in the butt crack). The shorts have shadow stripes like the late 80s Adidas shorts. Splitted at the sides but probably aren’t Adidas. Obviously missing the stripes and they’re too tight. Splitted and shadow stripes so not Adidas Junior. Or maybe the stripes are faded.

Pic 2 showing a boy in dark blue Adidas shorts. I think only this close-up scene.

Pic 3 showing a boy from a distance in purple shorts with wide turqouise or light blue sides. Also others in 80s cotton shorts including colorful and black.

I have to recheck the complete series and especially this episode, but am currently too busy and have something else to watch. Light blue and purple are my favourite colors.

Main entry, currently rating 6

Update: Fun House (1988)

funhouse-1988-ep2funhouse-1988-ep22

Some more scenes of the US Fox’s Fun House. Some interesting actions like piggyback, kneeing and wheelbarrow race. Maybe all pics from 1990.

Pic 1 from YouTube clip called FFH-02 (also with older girls), pic 2 from FFH-22, pic 3 from FFH-08, pic 4 from FFH-19.

Sorry, I’m quite busy and running out of movies.

Comment: A recent suggestion (both YouTube links are now dead). Several celebrities (males and females) and others in the background in shiny shorts including 70s style and also Adidas. Many different colors, probably all available.

I don’t know all episodes. There are few clips online and most in poor image quality.

I haven’t found notable younger kids or teens.

Pic 1 from May 4th 1980, pic 2 from Dec 4th 1988 cycling in light blue shorts, pic 3 from 1978 (Robin Williams episode), blue 70s style is a woman. Pic 4 from 1979. I also found pics on IMDb with yellow Adidas (man in 1976). Heather Thomas and William Shatner in 1982 in light grey shorts.

Rating 3-4 for now. Maybe I miss some good scenes.

Comment: I noticed 2 boys shirtless at a beach in shiny (?) shorts. One in white and another one in red. Red shorts unpictured, red pictures are trunks. Also other boys in speedos and trunks.

Not sure about the time setting. Could be the 1950s, but at least the white shorts appear shiny and 70s style.

1955 novel by William Mayne. I assume very few shorts scenes. The plot is about a boys’ choir.

Also soon on my bedroom blog (bunk beds, rating ~7).

For shorts, rating 4 only. I think not officially on DVD.
