Comment: At least one young men (Steve Antin ?) in light grey shorts (probably not shiny) and white underwear underneath making sit-ups. Also a young lady in tight red shiny Adidas shorts and men (boxing) in red, dark blue and I think black shorts (black maybe not shiny). Maybe some more colors?

Many, many years ago, at it’s airing in Germany in ~1990, I somehow liked the scene in pic 1. But now, I prefer younger actors. Maybe someone is interested in young men or women.

To me rating 2-3 only.

Update: Kinderen voor Kinderen 4

kinderenvoorkinderen4-n2kinderenvoorkinderen4-n1

Thanks once more Erik, for pointing out that the brand is Rucanor. The Dutch company even still exists. Obviously, also the other white, red and blue shorts are from Rucanor as well.

Unfortunately, the clip is rather short and rather few close-ups, but some very good scenes. Very interesting shiny shorts!

Pic 2 is from the same episode a bit later with boys and girls in other, white shorts. More 70s style.

Episode 6 also coming soon. Main entry at

Update: Schülergeschichten

schuelergeschichten-n2

By coincidence, I stumbled again upon this nice series and found an even better scene.

Very good Adidas shorts. At least red, blue and black. Probably not all are shiny. But definitely the red one on the right. Also not only Adidas Junior but splitted Adidas with inner briefs but also mainly tight.

Previously rating 6-7 only now around 7-8. Probably one of the best vintage Adidas series.

List 5: Companies, brands, countries

kinderenvoorkinderen4b

After finding an unknown Austrian (or other) brand and nice Dutch shorts, I make this list (work in progress). Any help is appreciated. Maybe I’ll make separate tags or lists (Adidas are too much, maybe for Adidas Junior or rare models or color). I have to find more close-up scenes. Most or all companies making shorts for both sports and swimwear. Not sure about other sports like boxing. Pic from Kinderen voor Kinderen 4.

Update: I could identify another brand OLAN worn in Cebollitas. They wore some other brands including Adidas and one yet unknown with a diamond Logo and pattern. Maybe I will make a list about Cebollitas. One minute later, I found the brand with the diamond, that they mainly wore in Cebollitas: Umbro. Thanks to Erik for pointing out the Rucanor shorts!

Comment: Some boys and girl in shiny shorts in song Trim, trim, trim (pictured). Also a bit later boys and girls in white shorts with yellow boarders (maybe not shiny) in song Lui zijn.

2 in white shorts with green boarders (also a boy sitting on a rowing device and floor).

One boy in black shiny shorts with orange stripes, one boy in medium blue shorts, yellow stripes and one boy in red shorts (white boarders). Rating at least 7-8.

Also at least boy and girls in white and black shorts in episode 6 (coming soon, also shirtless scenes in speedos). I don’t know/don’t remember all episodes.

Perfect show and songs. Also several entries on my bib overalls blog (f,m rating 8).

Update: Not sure about the brands. I think there are 2 different brands. At least one might be Italian Lotto. One more pic (close-up) at. At least the white and black are Rucanor shorts. Thanks to Erik.

Update: Der Tag, an dem Anton den Widerlan fand

widerlanwiderlan2g

I finally found my tape. In total around 2-3 minutes (interrupted). Only one PE scene, around 1 minute. First, one boy in shiny, light red shorts and later the sporty, blonde boy (last pic in the middle) in light green shorts, probably the same brand, unknown if shiny. Can anybody identify the brand? Looks like an “LO” or <O. On the sides are white patterns like a row of “><” .

One more pic of a chubby boy sitting in medium blue shorts in the main entry (only shown from a distance). There’s also a girl in pink shorts (probably not shiny) and the chubby boy in large, white shorts (non shiny, pic 4 on the left). Anton is on the right. He usually wore belted, light blue, purple checkered cotton shorts/knickers.

The sporty boy is later shown at home sitting on an exercise bike but in long, light grey cotton pants. I haven’t made a vid, just some few pics at higher res.

Comment: Some Soccer boys in I think shiny, plain white shorts. Also some sitting in the background. There were also commercials of other sports including hurdles (man in shiny yellow 70s shorts in 1989) and maybe some more. Most other sports (including Handball) has people in long pants. Swimming in speedos.

I found 2 clips on YouTube, one in bad (this one) and one in very bad and darker image quality. Maybe there are more (untitled) commercial compilations including this as well? I somewhere have it partly on VHS but I think the end (from a distance) only.

One handsome boy with spiked hair (headshot). Also shown Otto Rehagel.

Rating 4-5.

Comment: At least this young lady playing tennis in short, white shiny shorts. Also close-up and even withouth clothes playing tennis. I only noticed this very brief scene.

Not sure if anybody of my readers is interested in women. But I recently found it and so add it here as well.

Very funny movies and TV series. But I think very few and good shorts scenes.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

Comment: Some Soccer boys and teen boys in many different colored shorts including yellow, white, red, blue and black.

I think few and brief scenes only. Novel by Gina Basso. I think not on DVD.

I’m still searching for my Italian coming of age movie.

Rating 4-5 for this one.

 

Update 2: Manni, der Libero

manniderlibero-ep13

The home team including Thomas Ohrner (on left) mainly wore blue Adidas shorts with yellow stripes (and inner briefs), see other entry, but also the regular blue ones with white stripes which look much better to me. I think rather few scenes in ep 13 (pictured) and I think in ep 4 in ironed shorts (but I don’t like that).

Main entry, rating 6 (also 2 more posts including Puma shorts)
