Comment: Some few older Soccer boys in shiny white shorts. Also kicking a ball. The other team are Ice Hockey players. I think in longer black shorts.

Some time ago, I found a very brief clip on one of my backups. I can’t even find it right now.

The clip is dated from 1992, but obviously the show was broadcasted in 1996 and I switched the PC date back. (So dates of few other posts might be incorrect as well.)

I haven’t found much on the web. Not on IMDb, Wikipedia and not even on wunschliste.de. Probably a short lived show. Maybe there were other sports kids in other episodes? Or was there just one show?

Rating 5 for now.

Comment: As announced on my bib overalls blog (f/m, but mainly girls and teen girls, currently rating 6), there are some few boys and girls in (shiny) shorts, too.

At least a boy, I think handicapped, in oversized pink shorts in s3e24, a boy in dark blue shorts in s2e20, 2 white stripes. And a girl in black or similar shorts in s3e37.

Some older teen girls playing Basketball in  red shorts but probably not shiny (s1e6).

For now, rating 4-5 only due to the few and brief scenes.

They sometimes wore costumes in the studio, also on my western blog, rating 5.

Comment: Perfect series starring 14 yo Omri Katz (“Dallas (1978)“, rating 10, TOP# 1) but I only know of this brief scene at the intro showing older Basketball teen boys in black or similar (shiny ?) shorts.

However, Omri is shown at least in brown boxer shorts in ep 10 (not shiny) and of course jeans. Maybe Simon or other supporting actors in shorts, but probably not shiny? Does anybody remeber other shorts scenes?

I also don’t know of shorts scenes in “Eerie, Indiana: The Other Dimension” starring Bill Switzer.

Both series also on my bedroom blog, rating up to 6.

Currently for shiny shorts, rating 3 only. Series itself ~rating 8-9.

Comment: Redhaired Todd Bosley in medium blue and also in black or similar shiny shorts. Both pairs are, I think oversized. But he also has thin legs. His underwear can be partly seen under his black shorts.

Also a girl in yellow shorts, but not shiny.

Another girl in dark blue shortalls, also a woman in overalls (other blog, rating 5).

Great movie. Handsome blonde boy (Kristopher Kachurak), but I think not in shorts.

Rating 5 for the shorts, much more for the movie itself.

Comment: At least this teen boy in blue swim shorts in an indoor pool. I found a brief clip on one of my VHS recordings, some time ago and I don’t remember in which episode. Maybe also some more actors/actresses in other episodes?

Interesting series. As usual many guest stars. I remember few episodes, most notably one starring Eddie Karr (probably not in shiny shorts). I sometimes confound this with “Touched by an Angel (1994)”, another interesting series with a different black lady, which needs to be checked as well.

Rating 4-5 for this episode. Needs to be rechecked.

OP NAAR DE TOP?! (Villa Achterwerk 1994)

Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: 11 yo Joerie B. and probably some others in his Soccer team in shiny white shorts.

I found this single snapshot and can’t say much about it. This series is about the career aspirations of 4 kids including this boy following them for one year. (Others wants to be actress, singer and violinist). Aired in the great Sunday morning show “Villa Achterwerk”. Nov-Dec 1994.

Maybe shirtless scenes or else. At least one handsome boy.

Rating 6-7 for now. I hope to find my clip.

Rating:  7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: At least boys in at least yellow and red shiny shorts. Not sure about girls. maybe wearing just skirts?

As announced on my bib overalls blog (rating 5, boys+girls), I found this by coincidence and don’t know all episodes. Maybe there are even better scenes?

Originally an 1988 US show but even longer broadcasted in the UK/Scotland as pictured in s1e2.

Rating 7 for now.

Comment: The final update of this series. This pic also showing (other) Handball playing boys, I think from the same episode like the first entry (rating 7). This young boys wearing white and red shorts. At least in light blue shorts (non shiny ?). I prefer the other black shorts.

I also found the handsome teen boys in blue, but they wore long Adidas pants (and mainly headshots). At least in the studio scene I found. Maybe also earlier in shorts. But I doubt that this is from the same series anyway. Perhaps I can find more scenes, when I have more time. But I don’t remember better scenes.

Rating 5 for the boys here. Main entry, rating 8

Rating:  6/10 ?

Comment: Two boys in dark blue and yellow swim shorts in s2e10 and Soccer boys and girls in black, white and blue shorts s2e4.

Also a boy (Bernard) in light blue shorts sitting on the grass, a girl in red and a boy in green shorts (Soccer) and some in the locker room. Unknown episode. YouTube clip “Titles and special effects”.

After Woof!, I also found this nice series from the same Director.

Funny plot about stopping the time. I assume rather few good scenes. Kids are also quite young. I haven’t checked all episodes.

Rating 6-7 for now. Also on my pigtails blog, rating 4.

Comment: Some young boys and I think also girls in different shorts, probably some are shiny like black and blue. Obiously also some boys shirtless, but in the background. And Thomas Aldwinckle (pic 2 from s1e3) and maybe others in shorts but I think not shiny (maybe shorts for PE). Often school shorts are not shiny in the UK (and Australia).

Pics 1+3 are from a movie-length clip on YouTube, probably a DVD compilation of season 1. Definitley before season 6 as there are other actors.

Great series. I don’t remember all episodes. Maybe some more good episodes/scenes. Unfortunately still not on DVD. I have to check more clips on YouTube.

For now rating 4-5 for shorts only. There’s a girl and I also found a boy in bib overalls, update soon on my other blog. Also on my bedroom blog, rating 7.
