Comment: As announced, this earlier Langnese commercial. First, some older teen boys, maybe playing Basketball in different shorts, including dark blue, red and yellow.

A young lady cycling in tight shiny dark blue shorts (rear view) and at least some men jogging in 70s style red shorts. Maybe some more persons?

Probably most straight guys like the cycling lady. Not bad, but also very brief scene. The other boys or young men are less of interest.

The 1985 commercial (rating 8) is much better, including the song.

Rating 4 for this one. There are some more Lagnese, also later commercials, but I haven’t checked those.

Comment: Some older teen boys and teen girls at PE in medium blue shorts (one climbing up a rope with longer underwear underneath). Also teen boys in red and yellow shorts, I think playing Basketball.

There are better movies. Actors are quite old.

And I think rather few good scenes. Filmed in 1987. Part 1 in Germany was Slaughter High.

So, rating 4 for now only.

Comment: Some boys in Basketball shorts (pic from song: Ezekiel Saw the Wheel) also a cheerleading girl in light grey shorts and a toddler boy and older girl sitting in shiny dark blue shorts. Probably some more.

Pic 2 showing a shirtless boy sitting in wet, light green / turqouise swim shorts in “Who Did (Swallow Jonah)?” from DVD Silly Songs (1995). But few and brief scenes. Also a boy sitting in purple short, but I think not shiny.

Also many boys and girls in bib overalls and shortalls, partly raw denim (other blog, rating 8), especially in DVD Songs of America.

I don’t know all clips. Rating 4-5 for now only. I assume rather few shiny shorts scenes.

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.

Update: Teens in purple shiny track shorts in s1e11

Comment: Per Damgaard Hansen (Per Damgård Hansen), 12 or maybe 13 yo in longer, dark blue, shiny shorts (many scenes). Also at least one girl (?) in black or similar dark shorts with a Basketball. I don’t remember a game though.

I found some parts on one of my VHS tapes and first wasn’t sure about the title.

I have to recheck it more carefully. Typical Scandinavian comedy movie. Book series by Sören Olsson starting in 1984, but setting probably in the present 90s.

Also a teen girl in bib overalls (soon on my other blog, rating 6) and a boy in overalls in series “Sunes jul” (rating 4).

Rating 5-6 for now.

Sune i Grekland (2012) has shirtless boys sitting in swim shorts (coming soon).

Comment: Next to the female coach (Cathy Lee Crosby) who wears blue shiny Adidas shorts, there are several Basketball playing older teen boys / young men in medium blue and other teams in green and red shorts (but not Adidas). Also locker room scenes I think also shirtless.

I only have checked this movie at high speed.

The boys (and woman) are quite old. The youngest teen boy is probably around 16.

So rating 4 for now only. Nice 70s shorts though.

Comment: Some Basketball playing boys and teen boys in blue and black shiny shorts. Maybe more in other episodes. Swim shorts / board shorts as well?

Obviously a very rare series. On IMDb there’ even still a wrong poster although someone mentioned it.

I don’t remember much of this series and only found a very brief clip on a VHS.

Produced by Nomad Films, directed by Andrew Prowse and Howard Rubie. (Even these important infos are missing on IMDb). Current rights obvioulsy by Oscorp Ent. Main characters are next to the Walker family, a 14 yo Boy Luke (Shayne Vea) and a 13 yo girl Joanne. Also at least 2 younger boys including Christopher Fare (~ 9 yo).

Rating 5 for now. Also soon on my overalls blog (teen girl rating 6).

Comment: Several High school (varsity) Basketball players, older teen boys and teen girls in different shiny shorts. Often Light blue (2 white stripes, home team ?), also red, yellow, dark blue, white and maybe other colors.

Pic from s1e11. Many good colors at least in s3e11.

I don’t know the complete series.

Teens are very old. So rating 3-4 for now only.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 4. Obviously not on DVD but on YouTube.

Please also note my rare movies list.
