Comment: Some boys and maybe some girls in (shiny) short. Pic from the 2017 contest showing 2 boys in black and yellow shorts, both Adidas. Sitting, standing. Also a brief scene of a young boy shirtless in a pool in swim shorts.

I found this by coincidence or better hard research on YouTube. Obviusly a local contest. Not sure if broadcasted on local TV or most-likely just online.

I haven’t checked all episodes.

There are also girls in shorts, but most or all shorts aren’t shiny.

Rating even 6-7 for now.

Originally, I wanted to post “Double Dare” today. But the shorts turned out to be long jogging pants interrupted with a knee pad.

Comment: Some boys and girls in (at least) black Adidas Junior shorts, also wet games. Some shorts appear longer (two shorts ?). Handsome blonde kids. Maybe also some in the audience in shorts?

Another, older suggestion. Thanks very much! And sorry, I forgot these.

3 YouTube clips titled Rally Planeten, but Rallyplaneten is the correct title.

Based on the British show “Run the Risk” (and earlier Double Dare). There are also some other shows in other countries, mainly in the 90s like “Drops!” in Germany but mainly the Nickelodeon shows. But I don’t remember shiny shorts in there. Needs to be rechecked for other and upcoming clips.

No entry on IMDb. Aired on TV4. Hosts: David Hellenius and Sofia Eriksson.

Comment: Some, mainly younger boys in shorts, most notable these 2 boys in dark blue and dark green shorts. Maybe not shiny as set in the 1960s. Few scenes at 17 minutes. One older boy or young man in black shorts and a teen girl in dark blue shorts.

So rating 3-4 only. Also soon on my bedroom blog.

Update: Dallas (1978)

I have briefly checked several episodes, mainly of seasons 8-12 (and I own seasons 13+14). I found some few more pool scenes of younger Christopher and John Ross. junior and others.

Pic 1 showing Christopher shirtless in brown/colorful or similar wet swim shorts (not shiny) in s10e3 (sitting and also walking rear view, distance). Pic 2 probably John Ross jun. in s9e27 I think in shiny swim shorts (white and black ?). Underwater scenes, also over water but few and brief scenes and distance.

Christopher also in bathing trunks, light blue or similar in s10e5, John Ross jun. in red speedos in s8e2 and a toddler (Eric Farlow as Christopher ??) in dark blue shiny shorts sitting in s8e2. There are probably more swimming scenes (of others, mainly men) in earlier episodes, but I don’t have the time to check all episodes.

Much better, of course, is older Omri Katz in purple shorts (rating 10, TOP#1)

Comment: Several boys in shiny shorts and swim shorts at this cancer camp. I mentioned this before and this is my favourite episode. Some shorts are not shiny.

One boy in green Adidas shorts in the pool also outside jumping into it (but brief scenes).

Double episodes s2e1+2. I think very few shorts scenes in s2e1.

Comment: A recent suggestion (both YouTube links are now dead). Several celebrities (males and females) and others in the background in shiny shorts including 70s style and also Adidas. Many different colors, probably all available.

I don’t know all episodes. There are few clips online and most in poor image quality.

I haven’t found notable younger kids or teens.

Pic 1 from May 4th 1980, pic 2 from Dec 4th 1988 cycling in light blue shorts, pic 3 from 1978 (Robin Williams episode), blue 70s style is a woman. Pic 4 from 1979. I also found pics on IMDb with yellow Adidas (man in 1976). Heather Thomas and William Shatner in 1982 in light grey shorts.

Rating 3-4 for now. Maybe I miss some good scenes.

Comment: Some older teen boys/young men playing Soccer in medium blue and black shorts. One thinner and one thick stripe at one side, also on the shirts. Not sure about this brand. At least one in longer grey shorts. Actors in blue shorts include 20 yo Nick Roux and I think 15 yo Blake Michael.

Also on my bib overalls blog (teen girls rating 3).

Nothing special and few good scenes. Older boys,

so rating 2-3 only.

Comment: At least some older teen girls and I think teen boys in track shorts in ep 7801 (2018), pictured and I also found shirtless older teen boys/young men in I think non-shiny board-shorts and teen girls in non-shiny shorts at an outdoor pool in a 1985 episode (YouTube clip titled Scott Robinson & Kim Taylor | Neighbors [1985]). Maybe some younger kids in the background?

I don’t know all episodes, almost 8000. Maybe there are more episodes of interest.

Rating 2-3 for now.

Also on my bib overalls blog, (f,m rating 4).

Sorry, I’m running out of good movies/series.

Comment: Mainly some shirtless men or older teen boys and also women in different shorts and swimwear on a beach. Hundreds of supporting actors, I think younger boys as well (like in medium blue at 16 minutes). But most very briefly or from a distance.

Shorts in almost all colors, at least black, white, medium blue, light yellow (f,m), dark green (m) and red (f, m ?), I think also purple (woman) and grey or similar. Some shorts are not shiny but most. Scene pictured at 10 and 40 minutes. Best scenes at around 16 (and 10) minutes. Also women undressing her shorts (white, bikini underneath). Wet scenes in the sea. I think Adidas (f,m) at 10.

I’ve checked it some time ago and don’t remember much. Needs to be rechecked more carefully at slow speed.

Typical movie. I assume few (good) scenes. 2 longer scenes on the beach. Later a pool scene but probably not of interest.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

I’ve added the tab “Brands” on top after finder a new Danish brand in Gummi-Tarzan.

Comment: Some, mainly younger boys at PE in different shiny shorts including Adidas Junior (red and white with red stripes), some in 70s style shorts (white, medium blue) some others in black shorts. Main character, 8 yo Ivan played by Alex Svanbjerg in light red shorts (unpictured). Some few have matching shirts.

Many boys have shorts from a brand, I don’t know with vertical “V”s at the side like the blue ones in pic 2, the older boy with the black ones and the trainer.

Does anybody know this brand?

Update: I think this brand is Hummel.

Interesting different shorts. I don’t know the complete movie, yet, but I assume rather few good scenes. Shirtless scenes but maybe not in combination with shiny shorts. Also sitting (Ivan) but rather bad scene.

Rating 8 for now. Aka Gummitarzan.
