6/10 ?
Comment: Some boys and girls in (at least) black Adidas Junior shorts, also wet games. Some shorts appear longer (two shorts ?). Handsome blonde kids. Maybe also some in the audience in shorts?

Another, older suggestion. Thanks very much! And sorry, I forgot these.

3 YouTube clips titled Rally Planeten, but Rallyplaneten is the correct title.

Based on the British show “Run the Risk” (and earlier Double Dare). There are also some other shows in other countries, mainly in the 90s like “Drops!” in Germany but mainly the Nickelodeon shows. But I don’t remember shiny shorts in there. Needs to be rechecked for other and upcoming clips.

No entry on IMDb. Aired on TV4. Hosts: David Hellenius and Sofia Eriksson.


Heidi und Erni – ep. 27


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)


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.

Main entry, rating 7

Rating:  7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: Boys and girls almost always in red and dark yellow shorts. Also wet and muddy scenes and few sitting scenes.

Unlike the 1989 UK series, I haven’t found any bib overalls. And the yellow shorts are darker and maybe not or not that shiny.

There were 375 episodes but I only found some very few on YouTube.

Pic 1 from May 11, 1989. Pic 2 from s1e7 (season 1?) with a pool. Pic 3 from s1e6 with Leonardo DiCaprio in yellow and Danny Pintauro in red. Pic 4 showing muddy scenes in s1e22. On the left a girl. Mud is eggs. Good close-up scenes in s2e5.

Rating 7-8 for now.

Comment: At least some older teen girls and I think teen boys in track shorts in ep 7801 (2018), pictured and I also found shirtless older teen boys/young men in I think non-shiny board-shorts and teen girls in non-shiny shorts at an outdoor pool in a 1985 episode (YouTube clip titled Scott Robinson & Kim Taylor | Neighbors [1985]). Maybe some younger kids in the background?

I don’t know all episodes, almost 8000. Maybe there are more episodes of interest.

Rating 2-3 for now.

Also on my bib overalls blog, (f,m rating 4).

Sorry, I’m running out of good movies/series.

Comment: Adriana Pantaleo in light red (or orange) swim shorts, also a man in medium blue or grey ones. Brief scenes in yesterday’s final episode 14 (s2e6a).

Next to the earlier Soccer scenes, finally another good one. (I might miss some scenes in earlier episodes as I missed some).

Nice pool scenes and leg exercises at 15 minutes. Also 2 handsome, blonde boys (at 11 minutes in the hospital but not in shorts).

Main entry, previously rating 3


Journey of the Heart (1997)

Country: USA

Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: very low
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Some older teen boys playing Baseball in different shorts, most notably this dark blue ones. Also darker blue or black but not sure if shiny. Maybe some more supporting actors in the background? Also a boy in shortalls (bib overalls blog, rating 5, also women).

Also a very good, complete undressing scene of Jeremy Lelliott at the beginning dancing under water being splashed from a hose (flashback scene, probably set in the 1980s). White underwear (tighty whities ?) but also without. Shirtless and wet scenes but not in combination with shiny shorts, so no tagging.

Interesting movie, the plot is about an autistic and blind boy. Not sure about the time setting at the end. Either 80s but could be the 90s. Shorts are quite long and modern.

For the shorts, rating ~3 only. Movie itself much higher.

Il cielo in una stanza

Clothing occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  2/10 ?
Rating: **
Comment: Some older teen boys/young men (at least one is ~17 yo) playing Soccer in white shorts. Not sure about the time setting here and if shorts are shiny. There are (probably most) time travel and flashback scenes set in the 1960s. I haven’t seen the complete movie, yet.

I assume few scenes, and older actors, so rating 2-3 for now only.

English title: The sky in a room.

Comment: Some boys in black shorts (goalkeepers in medium blue and a fat boy in black shorts). Probably shiny. Also wet and dirty shorts as it rains. (Finally another entry tagged muddy). Also other boys in cotton and jeans shorts with a belt.

Also a fat boy in bib overalls (other blog, rating 5, soon again updated).

I think rather few shorts scenes.

Rating 3-4 for this.

Japanese title of this awarded movie:”夏の庭 The Friends”. 1992 novel by Kazumi Yumoto. The plot seems also interesting and is about the holiday of 3 boys and the death.

Update 2: Cebollitas


Due to a suggestion on my bib overalls blog, I have rechecked some few episodes in the range 249-266. Next to the usual Soccer shorts (mainly medium blue and white from brand Umro), there are also some interesting swim shorts and some more pics of plain white, a bit transparent shorts.

Pic 1+3 from ep 263, nice sitting scenes of several boys (on the right Fede), pic 3 nice warming-up exercise with 2 (Fede on left) at least 2 other pairs.

Pic 2 a nice pool scene in ep 251. Sitting scenes including yellow and red shorts. One handsome boy in dark blue or similar shorts. However, most shorts more look like underwear and aren’t shiny. Fede on the right. One chubby boy standing.

Pic 4 showing Fede on front during a Soccer match in ep 260 (also frontal view).

Pic 5 a beach scene with again yellow but another boy and 2 in red shorts, mainly board shorts. Fede in medium blue shorts but not shiny here. Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog.Rating 9-10 (I prefer the Umro shorts)
