Comment: At least two great scenes. Best at 1h00 (pics 1+3) At least one boy in dark blue, shiny Adidas shorts with yellow stripes and bottom border. Some more boys, including older teen boys but mainly not shiny or from a distance.

Another scene at 40 minutes. Mainly shown some older teen boys/young men. Light red shorts, tight, light green shorts, dark blue 70s style, medium blue, white (not shiny) and some more. Also some young boys here but briefly and from a distance (including light blue shorts.

By rechecking my older entries on my bib overalls blog, I came across this nice 80s movie. Also nice bedroom scenes, soon on my other blog, like an update on my overalls blog.

Rating 6-7. Needs to be rechecked later more carefully at slow speed.

Comment: Some teen boys and teen girls in different Basketball shorts including 2 different black ones (red and other tem with white parts), Also in dark blue Basketball shorts includign a younger girl and at least teen boys in medium blue Basketball shorts. Maybe more colors? Pic from ep 7.

I don’t know the complete series.

There are much better series. I prefer younger actors.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Update: Schülergeschichten

schuelergeschichten-n2

By coincidence, I stumbled again upon this nice series and found an even better scene.

Very good Adidas shorts. At least red, blue and black. Probably not all are shiny. But definitely the red one on the right. Also not only Adidas Junior but splitted Adidas with inner briefs but also mainly tight.

Previously rating 6-7 only now around 7-8. Probably one of the best vintage Adidas series.

Update: Cebollitas

cebollitas-ep169cebollitas-ep279

As announced one more update of Cebollitas and the brands. Currently, I don’t have the time to check more episodes. I don’t assume more brands anyway.

Pic 1 from ep 169 showing Fantasmita in blue shiny shorts with 3 horizontal stripes on the legs. 3 stripes are copyrighted and usually must be Adidas, but I doubt that and haven’t found Adidas text or leaf logos. In other episodes like 222, the boys wear blue shorts with 2 stripes. Gamuza wears white Umbro shorts.

Pic 2 from ep 279 showing boys and girls in both white and dark blue shorts playing Basketball (that’s why there are also girls).

Pic 3 showing a young man in purple shorts with stars in ep 200.

Pic 4 showing the boys in black or similar Olan shorts with many larger diamonds in ep 386.

Comment: Some boys in swim shorts in different episodes. Mainly most wore speedos when swimming. Pic 1, one boy in larger, medium blue shiny swim shorts also sitting (also another one in nice yellow speedos), pic 2 one in wet yellow, green, red ones. I think also episodes about Soccer at least one in white shorts. One boy boxing in light blue shiny shorts in ep 28 and boys in light and medium blue shorts (one in sweatpants underneath), both pics coming soon.

Another swimming scene in ep 68 “Flachschwimmer” unlike almost all other episodes available on DVD. At least one teen boy in dark swim shorts. PE, Basketball and locker room scenes in ep 33 “Der Andere” at least one shirtless in medium blue shiny shorts.

Good shirtless swimming scenes and handsome boys in “Der Fünfzigmarkschein” and “Nie wider Ibiza” but I think either speedos or board shorts.

Great family series about friendships. I don’t know all episodes and have some partially on VHS. I have to check for the episode names of the ones pictured and also other episodes. But I remember rather few good shiny shorts scenes.

Rating 7-8 for now. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4.

Subtitle: “Filme über Freunde heute”. Although always used, the word “heute” doesn’t belong to the subtitle to me, but it’s obviusly the announcement (“today” showing) of the actual episode as separately shown at the intro at a different frame.

Comment: Some boys at school (PE, 6th grade) mostly in tight Adidas Junior shorts, I think mainly shiny obviously playing Basketball. Most or only colors are blue, black and red. One in 70s style red shorts. Half of them shirtless, also a locker room scene. Pics from ep. 2.

Very interesting documentary, 3 episodes including this are on YouTube. Probably rather few scenes. Probably perfect to those who prefer Adidas Junior shorts.

Personally, I prefer the larger shorts with inner briefs and US movies.

So rating 6-7 only. Another problem is the image quality. But nice time document.

Update: I found an even better scene. Also splitted Adidas shorts with inner briefs (but tight as well). Now rating (7)-8.

Update 2: Kidsongs

kidsongs-footloosekidsongs-footloose2

Last night, I remembered The Cedarmont Kids and especially the song “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” (overalls blog, rating 8), and so, I’ve checked if there are other clips. And I found a version from Kidsongs. And later some more clips of them. Updates on my other blog also coming soon.

Pictured is the song “Footloose” (1987). I have checked almost all Kidsongs vid, and I wonder, how I could miss this and others.

At least a girl and boy in light blue shiny Adidas shorts. Also Basketball playing boys and girls in green and yellow shorts. Very good, although some kids are very young.

Main entry, rating 8 at

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.
