Update 4: Meatballs

meatballs-u3emeatballs-u3c

As announced, another, final update of Meatballs. I have checked most of the important scenes more carefully and almost all (Adidas) shorts turned out to be not shiny but of cotton fabric, including the green ones.

I just found an interesting scene at 12 minutes (pic 1) with the young boys. There’s one boy in medium blue, shiny shorts with 4 stripes, also lying on the bed. Another boy in (non-shiny) dark blue Adidas shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy in 70s style red shorts (after 36 minutes) at the parent’s day being embraced.

Pic 3 at 1h21 showing a girl in white (shiny) Adidas and another girl in dark blue shiny 70s shorts. The man, I already had.

Pic 4 showing older teen boys/young men, one in white 70s shorts, one in medium blue sitting, one in orange shorts with red sweat pants underneath and an older teen girl in tight, white shorts.

Unpictured: Another young man in sweat pants underneath at the wrestling scene at 1h11. And another boy in red shorts at 1h21 (rear view, from a distance) next many others. I think, there’s one young boy sitting in black shorts (but from a distance) and maybe also dark yellow shorts (not shiny). So almost all colors, except pink and purple. Not sure about grey ones.

I think, I have to recheck the movie again later at slow speed, especially the audience. Most and best scenes near the end at the different competitions. Main overview entry, rating 8 at

Update 3: Meatballs

meatballs-n2ameatballs-n2b

As announced, some more scenes and pics of this great movie. I think, I have to make one more post, but later.

Pic 1 showing next to the boy in red (non-shiny trunks) a longhaired teen in green shorts at 1h04. Is this a girl? Shorts look shiny. There are more boys, women and young men in green, mainly Adidas shorts but most are not shiny, maybe just one of a young man (high jump scene).

Pic 2 showing a teen boy in beige or maybe white or similar shorts at 1h04. I haven’t noticed other scenes of beige shorts.

Pic 3 showing a young lady in light red, short shorts at around 10 minutes. Bill Murray also in red but I think non-shiny shorts.

Pic 4 a thin, young lady in red Adidas shiny shorts at 17 minutes. But I don’t like her at all. Reminds me of Sleepaway Camp (rating 9).

Rating 5-6 for this scenes. Main entry, rating 8 at

Update 2: Meatballs

meatballs-at36meatballs-at1h21

I now have completely rechecked my DVD. There are much more (shiny) shorts scenes including young women. But mostly young men/ older teen boys. Most colors are red and white. I don’t want too much pics in a single post and will make at least one more update later.

Some very good Adidas shorts (including women), but some aren’t shiny. Also other shorts including jeans shorts. Also few boys in speedos. I think no board shorts.

Pic 1 showing my favourite scene of Rudy at 36 minutes in shiny white 70s style shorts with red boarders. More scenes at the very end (pic 2, a bit wet). He mainly wore jeans shorts.

Pic 2 at 1h21 also showing a boy in red shiny Adidas shorts (with inner briefs) and an older boy in rare, orange Adidas (Handball ?) shorts with dark blue stripes. Brief scene. Also a shirtless older teen boy in dark green Adidas shorts, but probably not shiny.

Pic 3 at 1h17 showing next to 2 older kids in red shorts (is the right one a girl ?) also 2 boys on the left in white and blue shorts. Another spectators also there, dark blue shorts, probably not shiny, another one in red and I think green.

Pic 4 at 17 minutes showing a boy in white shorts (good scenes walking downstairs) and another one on the left in dark blue shorts.

One older teen boy in beige shorts at 1h04 (close up). One older guy wearing sweat pants underneath orange shorts. Also sitting scenes of boys (distance).

As said more pics, including women later. I also found another boy and girl in bib overalls (see my other blog, rating 3).

Notable scenes:

4 minutes, 10, 12, 17, 28, 29, 36, 45, 1h03, 1h04, 1h18, 1h21.

Main entry, still rating 8 (but rather 7-8) at

I found another very good screenshot of this famous 1979 movie on another hard disc showing 2 boys in white shiny shorts at 17 minutes, I think one is from Adidas.

I own the DVD but forgot to recheck it completetly and currently, I’m very busy.

It’s mainly of interest of 14 or 15 yo Chris Makepeace (also in white and other shorts), but I don’t like him and his haircut.

So still needs to be checked, but I think there are mainly older “teen boys”.

Main entry, currently rating 8 (maybe a bit lower)

DeAnna Robbins in tight, medium blue shiny Adidas shorts with yellow stripes and boarders. 2 short scenes only. Also a young man in tighty whiteys.

Comment:
Finally some very good shiny Adidas shorts. By coincidence, or better during research, I found this interesting series. (Teen) boys and girls mainly in white shorts. 70s style white shorts with a red stripe and boarders but also already shiny, white Adidas shorts with dark blue stripes, also sitting.

Mainly in the studio doing sports but also other kids outside in other colored shorts like blue and light green (not Adidas).

I don’t know all episodes. ACCESS Network and TVOntario 40×10 minutes.

Rating at least 8 for now. They should release this on DVD.

Rating: ********
Comment: Next to some young men or older teen boys (also shirtless), there are 2 notable scenes of boys in this 1985 commercial. First, one boy in shiny white Adidas shorts with red stripes (side and rear view when running away after focussing a sunbeam through a lens to the hairy chest of the old man) and later a boy in light green (non-Adidas) shorts.

The white shorts are not splitted at the sides, I think Handball or Volleyball shorts. I think with inner briefs. I never own that one.

There are also other Langnese commercials with young men and young women in shiny shorts, coming soon.

This is maybe the most famous German commercial ever. No movie in the theatres without it and selling ice cream after it before starting the main movie. Nice song Like Ice in the Sunshine. But as usual, rather short scenes. I found it by coincidence.

Rating 8-9.

Comment: Some boys and teen boys in shorts, shiny shorts and speedos including shirtless scenes, also in shiny shorts. A blonde boy in red Adidas shorts (is it Adidas ?), another older boy in medium blue 70s style tight shorts (also shirtless, sitting and cycling). Younger boys in white, light grey and/or light blue shorts. Maybe not all shorts are shiny.

Quite interesting movie but could be better.

Rating 5-6. I think not on DVD.

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: 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
