Comment: Blonde Marc Elflein, 12 or 13 yo in longer dark green Basketball shorts and black boy Noel Okwanga in medium blue shorts in today’s ep 913 (season 21e17). As announced there are Basketball teams in the final episode 922 (March 28) in red, green and medium blue shorts. Home team including a girl I think in red shorts. Probably some more scene in upcoming episodes. Also handsome boys in black or dark blue shorts some days ago (~ep 901 ?).

Also available online.

Main entry, rating up to 7 (also on my other blogs)



Update: Hang Time (1995)


I found some more and even better scenes in this series. Most notable some younger boys in s3e20 in different coloured shorts including black, dark blue, light blue and yellow (pic 1). Maybe not all are shiny. Also a teen girl in dark blue or black shorts and light blue and white parts (also close-up).

The older teen boys in light blue shorts in several episodes (pic 2 from s1e13).

Unpictured: Dark blue and light blue shorts in s2e7, white shorts in s3e22 and several other shorts in s1e5 including a teen girl in purple ones. And a teen girl in black shorts in s4e1 (2 thick stripes).

Sitting scenes of teen boys and a teen girl in s3e23.

Comment: Shad Moss aka Lil Bow Wow in white and orange Basketball shorts. Also men at least in white, orange and grey shorts. But rather few scenes.

Typical Basketball shorts/scenes. Although I like orange and grey shorts.

I don’t like Lil Bow Wow, so rating 2-3 only.

Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~3 as well.

Wednesday, season 21 finally starts (daily 2 episodes).

Comment: Some older teen boys (High School students) playing Basketball in light red and white shorts, not sure if shiny. Also shirtless and locker room scenes.

Obviously a typical High School comedy movie. And the boys are quite old. And rather few scenes. Sorry for the bad image quality. I think not officially on DVD.

Starring Thomas Carter (pic 1) and John Friedrich (*1958). But most are even older.

So rating 3 for now only.

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


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.

Main entry, including locker room and shirtless scenes at


Update: Cebollitas


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.
