Rating: ****
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: Some older teen girls and teen boys mainly in short shorts playing Basketball. Pics from s1e1. Maybe most shorts are not or not that shiny. Not sure about the light green ones. One teen girl in shiny, longer, red Basketball shorts and of course teen boys in longer shiny Basketball shorts. I think also boys (shirtless) in board shorts in other episodes including 11 yo Paul Butcher.

Very good and funny family series. But I watch mainly for Dustin. Series is currently running on Germany’s Nick.

Also on my bedroom blog (bunk bed) rating 4 also showing some pics of Dustin.

For short rating 5 for now only.

Comment: One teen boy, I think Mikkel Bratt Silset (pic 1) sitting in colorful, long board shorts. Also some other boys at an indoor pool including one in oversized medium blue swim or board shorts. Another one in black. I think few and brief scenes near the beginning only and most from a distance.

So rating 4-5 only. Directed by Erik Richter Srand. English title: Sons.

Interesting plot, but there are much better movies. Movie rating also ~4 only.

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.

Update: Wie erziehe ich meine Eltern?

wieerzieheichmeineeltern-s1e11wieerzieheichmeineeltern-s1e11c

Some more and even better scenes in s1e11. And shirtless scenes and black swim shorts of Felix (few and brief scenes at the end).

Felix also in dark blue, modern Adidas shorts and Johanna in black Adidas shorts. Also some few other kids in shiny shorts including a girl in white ones. Also the dad of Felix in blue Adidas shorts.

Main entry rating 5, now maybe a bit higher

Comment: Some boys in longer shorts, a least 2 in white and 1 in red, also sitting and also shirtless in a locker room. The other shorts are probably not shiny.

Interesting plot and scenes. No entry on IMDb. Directed by Tomás Flichman. Based on an 1961 short story within book Las otras puertas by Abelardo Castillo who recently died. R.I.P.

Rating 6.

Update: Il ritorno del piccolo Lord

ilritornodelpiccololord

I previously don’t had any pics, as I only remember few and brief scenes, mainly in and underwater. Luckily, I now found this pic on an old hard drive, dark blue or black with yellow swim shorts. I don’t remember good scenes of the other (red) shorts.

Not that bad, but very few and brief scenes at the beginning only. Very poor, modern movie remake of Little Lord Fauntleroy. (Rating 1-2).

Main entry, still rating 3-(4) at

Comment: Dylan Smith (sitting in the background) and some few other young boys in longer, orange shiny shorts playing Soccer. Also cycling in these shorts.

I didn’t remember shorts scenes in this movie, so that’s why I haven’t posted it earlier.

Great movie. But I assume few shorts scenes. And the boys are quite young and I prefer shorter shorts.

So rating 5-6 only.

Comment: I almost forgot to post this other episode of “Auf die Plätze..”. Captured in Dec 2002, could also been the time of airing. Or recorded earlier in the late 90s.

Several boys and young teen boys (at least 20+, probably around 40) outside doing track and field, half of them in white (non-Adidas) shorts, the others in green Adidas shorts (with inner briefs). Green Addias shorts are rather rarely shown (in movies) and I think rarely worn in the 80s. Blue and red were much more common.  Not only the colors were preferred but probably also the (German) Soccer clubs wearing those. I think only one or two clubs wearing green in the early 80s (Werder Bremen and Borussia Mönchengladbach ?), see this list

/2016/12/20/list-3-colors-of-adidas-other-shorts-in-1980/

As announced, I only have some very short clips but I don’t like this one of older boys.

The previous post is much better (rating 7).

/2017/04/13/auf-die-platze/

I somewhere have a clip of handsome Bavarian boys, I think in blue Adidas shorts in a studio (rating ~7), but I have to search for it and I’m not sure if this is from this series as well. Coming soon.

Comment: Some boys and I think one girl mainly in longer, black shorts. Also the home team playing Soccer in underwear. The other team partly in shorter and tigher, I think blue Adidas shiny shorts.

I have seen all or almost all the movies and own 1+2 on DVD, but surprisingly there are few shiny shorts scenes as they often play in their street clothes.

This 2nd movie is definitely the best of them all.  Many DVD extras and some very good scenes like very handsome blonde actors (Marlon Wessel), loosing even his underwear while playing Soccer (unfortunately not shown), a girl peeing like a boy, and bare butts at the end.

Movie rating ~7. For shiny shorts, rating 4-5 only. I have to recheck the later movies (but I don’t like them) the actors also grew much older. English title: The Wild Soccer Bunch. Novels by Joachim Masannek.

Again mistakes on IMDb Wilson Gonzales Ochsenknecht missing his surname.
