Rating:  5/10 *
Rating: *****
Comment: Some boys in shorts as well as some few scenes shirtless in swim shorts in the 1991 episode “Summer Camp” which is about blind kids and counselor.

Has been aired some days ago, but I missed some parts. Not as good as some other episodes (like s2e1, also at summer camp, see main entry, rating up to 7).

Justin Gocke (1978-2014, “Santa Barbara”, also on my overalls blog) as 10 yo Eric in red and other track shorts (pic 2) and a man (Tom Sullivan) in red swim shorts.

Some handsome boys, (another, unknown blonde boy even more of interest than Gocke) but most shorts are not shiny. A very good scene of a tug of war game where the kids falling down.

Another blind boy in yellow and yellow/colorful shorts. Same pair (pic 1) also used for swimming and on he water slide.

Great series, I own seasons 1-3 only.

Rating: *****
Comment: 12 kids including boys from Germany, France, Belgium and Switzerland sometimes in board shorts, also wet. In red shorts (blonde Matthew on the left). One other boy in black, others in white/colorful. They were jumping in a very small outdoor pool or pit. Also showing some local boys/young men.

French title: Sarah et les marmitons. 10 episodes. Partly controversial (slaughtering rabbits).

Nice setting, unusual cooking show. Some handsome boys. But obviously rather few shiny shorts scenes (long board shorts anyway) but not bad.

Rating 5-6.

Not sure about girls wearing (shiny) shorts or woman Sarah. I think one girl very briefly in bib overalls or shortalls (rear view, bird’s view). Sitting at a table outside. Final episode?

Junior Survival

Comment: 24 boys and teen boys and also some (few ?) girls in different shiny shorts including purple and medium blue. Many wet scenes, also sitting. Perfect rear views. I think few or no shirtless scenes.

I don’t remember all seasons and episodes. There should be around 8 episodes each season in at least 3 different countries with many hard competitions. Youngest boy (Remco ?) around 10 or 11 (younger looking), most around 13-15.

I think, I only have seen parts of 2 seasons. The best of course the purple shorts, I think in 1991 in Curacao. 8 episodes there. White inner briefs underneath, but not cotton but thin plastic nettings. Handsome blonde boys and many soaked wet scenes and other good scenes in different positions.

One season later, they wore medium blue shiny shorts (Belgium ?). Not far as good as the purple ones, maybe rating 6-7. At the final at a pool party (Tunisia ?), I remember an older teen boy wearing compression shorts underneath. I think no compression shorts under the purple shorts. Maybe some under the blue ones?

There should also been a 1997 show with boys 15-18 set in NL, but I haven’t seen that one. Maybe that in a studio?

I can’t say much more about this rare series. But I give rating 10 for the purple shorts. (Series Dallas still on TOP 1). No entry on IMDb. Some infos on Beeld en Geluid (no pics). I hope for a rebroadcasting or even DVD release.

Comment: Several boys and some teen boys in shiny, mainly tight shorts including some in Adidas (white, red, blue and black, maybe other colors), also some shirtless and sitting scenes. White Adidas have black stripes. Most with no inner briefs (Adidas Junior). At least 2 pairs of black Adidas shorts with inner briefs (boy and also a man). One boy in green shorts (brief scenes ep 1). Obviously few (younger) girls in shiny shorts at least one in light blue in ep 4. Swimming scenes at a lake (ep 3+5, 2), but mainly in speedos. So very few or no wet scenes in shorts.

Also nice bunk beds (dorm in this summer camp), soon on my bedroom blog, rating 6.

Interesting series. But I only have checked it at high speed. Unfortunatley the image quality is quite poor on YouTube. Best shorts scenes in ep 6 (pics 1 Soccer, pic 2 washing, also red Adidas shirtless) then ep 5. Also the non-Adidas shiny shorts, especially dark blue ones (70s style) are good.

Rating 7.

Comment: As in most other camp movies, several boys, including younger boys in different colored shorts, swim shorts, board shorts and jeans shorts. Also shirtless scenes and wet scenes including shiny white Adidas shorts (blue stripes), light blue, dark green and colorful shorts.

I have seen this movie, but long time ago and have to recheck for the best scenes, younger actors, sitting scenes and the like. Obviously no females but boys from a boys detention center. I only have checked trailers and other short clips.

Good and funny movie. Late 80s. But according pics, I assume rather few good scenes. And most actors are older.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Rating: *****
Comment: Some boys at 11 minutes in red and dark blue shorts (pictured, blue maybe not shiny), one scene of boys sitting shirtless at 25 minutes (man in red shorts), and one more scene near the end, shirtless and wet in red, white and dark blue or black shorts, also sitting. Rather few and brief scenes. Most scenes, around 90 % in beige Boy Scouts shorts.

Quite interesting Scout movie of real Scouts, but unfortunatley few, but quite good shiny shorts scenes.

So rating 5-6 only.

English title: Black Feet. And Blackfoots.

Update: Sleepaway Camp


I considered buying this on DVD (mainly for the younger boy, around 10 yo in white shorts, pic 2), as I only have a bad VHS. Obviously the uncut versions in good image quality are very expensive (50 EUR + shipping), so I have rechecked it again on YouTube.

There’s obviously just one notable and brief scene of the young boy. Not bad, but not worth buying an expensive DVD or BD.

I also found some more actors/colors. Including a girl in shiny yellow shorts, some in white shorts (pic 1), a very young blonde girl in red shorts. And one scene of young boys shirtless at a lake in wet red, blue, green and I think black shiny shorts (mainly Adidas). But all scenes are very brief and from a distance. There are almost all colors of shorts, maybe except purple and orange. One teen girl in dark pink shorts but I think not shiny. I think very few wet scenes.

Also an older teen boy also sitting shirtless in shiny yellow shorts and another one in light blue.

The movie is a classic and very good. Some funny scenes in the cabins. And funny end.

But most boys are quite old. But still maybe around rating 9. Main entry at


I still have to check the sequels.

Rating: ******
Comment: One young man in shiny, blue Adidas shorts (white stripes, pics 2+3), one in shiny light grey shorts (dark stripes), 2 men running in red and green shorts, a young woman at a pool in black shorts, some younger boys aged ~9 and up running in different shorts (including blue, beige and colorful), one boy in yellow shorts sitting (not sure if shiny, pic 2) and some other boys and girls sitting in colorful and other shorts (maybe not shiny). A young man in white shorts but probably not shiny (Tennis shorts ?).

I found this by coincidence and have to recheck this more carefully. Sorry I forgot some pics and have to make an update.

Also nice wooden bunk beds. Soon on my other blog.

Rating 6-7 for now. Obviously rather few good scenes of younger actors.

Rating: ******
Comment: Some boys in shiny shorts including blue Adidas shorts (this boy also sitting), one other in white shorts. Probably some more. Shirtless scenes but mostly or only in speedos. Girls, but probably not in shiny shorts.

I don’t know/don’t remember this complete movie and hope for a soon broadcasting.

Obviously very good, but I assume rather few good shiny shorts scenes. I don’t like 70s speedos or non-shiny shorts. Nice summer camp movie. But I prefer US movies.

So rating 6 for now only.

Rating: *********
Comment: Boys, teen boys and teen girls in shiny shorts including Adidas. Some also shirtless and some sitting scenes. Maybe not all shorts are shiny. Swimming scenes of a young boy shirtless in medium blue swim shorts at the beginning.

Very good camp movie. I even purchased it on VHS but rarely watch it. So I have to recheck it again. For all colors, women, younger girls and wet scenes. Same for the sequels.

Many colors of the shorts including red, blue, black, beige. Not shiny probably white, blue, yellow, light grey, jeans shorts and probably some more. Teen girls in light green, blue, light green (Adidas), red and pink.

Rating 9-10 for now. First beige entry. I like camp movies. Unfortunately most boys seems quite old.

Also soon on my bedroom blog (rating ~7).

Update: I also found some few more and also younger boys and girls, also shirtless boy. But very few scenes of younger boys. So rating now maybe 8-9 only, leaving it by 9. New tags white, light blue, yellow, girls.
