Update 4: Meatballs

meatballs-u3emeatballs-u3c

As announced, another, final update of Meatballs. I have checked most of the important scenes more carefully and almost all (Adidas) shorts turned out to be not shiny but of cotton fabric, including the green ones.

I just found an interesting scene at 12 minutes (pic 1) with the young boys. There’s one boy in medium blue, shiny shorts with 4 stripes, also lying on the bed. Another boy in (non-shiny) dark blue Adidas shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy in 70s style red shorts (after 36 minutes) at the parent’s day being embraced.

Pic 3 at 1h21 showing a girl in white (shiny) Adidas and another girl in dark blue shiny 70s shorts. The man, I already had.

Pic 4 showing older teen boys/young men, one in white 70s shorts, one in medium blue sitting, one in orange shorts with red sweat pants underneath and an older teen girl in tight, white shorts.

Unpictured: Another young man in sweat pants underneath at the wrestling scene at 1h11. And another boy in red shorts at 1h21 (rear view, from a distance) next many others. I think, there’s one young boy sitting in black shorts (but from a distance) and maybe also dark yellow shorts (not shiny). So almost all colors, except pink and purple. Not sure about grey ones.

I think, I have to recheck the movie again later at slow speed, especially the audience. Most and best scenes near the end at the different competitions. Main overview entry, rating 8 at

Update 3: Meatballs

meatballs-n2ameatballs-n2b

As announced, some more scenes and pics of this great movie. I think, I have to make one more post, but later.

Pic 1 showing next to the boy in red (non-shiny trunks) a longhaired teen in green shorts at 1h04. Is this a girl? Shorts look shiny. There are more boys, women and young men in green, mainly Adidas shorts but most are not shiny, maybe just one of a young man (high jump scene).

Pic 2 showing a teen boy in beige or maybe white or similar shorts at 1h04. I haven’t noticed other scenes of beige shorts.

Pic 3 showing a young lady in light red, short shorts at around 10 minutes. Bill Murray also in red but I think non-shiny shorts.

Pic 4 a thin, young lady in red Adidas shiny shorts at 17 minutes. But I don’t like her at all. Reminds me of Sleepaway Camp (rating 9).

Rating 5-6 for this scenes. Main entry, rating 8 at

Update 2: Meatballs

meatballs-at36meatballs-at1h21

I now have completely rechecked my DVD. There are much more (shiny) shorts scenes including young women. But mostly young men/ older teen boys. Most colors are red and white. I don’t want too much pics in a single post and will make at least one more update later.

Some very good Adidas shorts (including women), but some aren’t shiny. Also other shorts including jeans shorts. Also few boys in speedos. I think no board shorts.

Pic 1 showing my favourite scene of Rudy at 36 minutes in shiny white 70s style shorts with red boarders. More scenes at the very end (pic 2, a bit wet). He mainly wore jeans shorts.

Pic 2 at 1h21 also showing a boy in red shiny Adidas shorts (with inner briefs) and an older boy in rare, orange Adidas (Handball ?) shorts with dark blue stripes. Brief scene. Also a shirtless older teen boy in dark green Adidas shorts, but probably not shiny.

Pic 3 at 1h17 showing next to 2 older kids in red shorts (is the right one a girl ?) also 2 boys on the left in white and blue shorts. Another spectators also there, dark blue shorts, probably not shiny, another one in red and I think green.

Pic 4 at 17 minutes showing a boy in white shorts (good scenes walking downstairs) and another one on the left in dark blue shorts.

One older teen boy in beige shorts at 1h04 (close up). One older guy wearing sweat pants underneath orange shorts. Also sitting scenes of boys (distance).

As said more pics, including women later. I also found another boy and girl in bib overalls (see my other blog, rating 3).

Notable scenes:

4 minutes, 10, 12, 17, 28, 29, 36, 45, 1h03, 1h04, 1h18, 1h21.

Comment:
I think one younger boy sitting in modern, longer grey, maybe shiny shorts and he and older teen boys shirtless in board shorts. But very few and brief scenes only.

Also nice dorm and bunk bed scenes, soon on my other blog, rating ~7.

For shorts rating 3-4 only.

There are much better movies, also with scouts and camp plot.

Update: Meatballs

meatballs-n

I found another very good screenshot of this famous 1979 movie on another hard disc showing 2 boys in white shiny shorts at 17 minutes, I think one is from Adidas.

I own the DVD but forgot to recheck it completetly and currently, I’m very busy.

It’s mainly of interest of 14 or 15 yo Chris Makepeace (also in white and other shorts), but I don’t like him and his haircut.

So still needs to be checked, but I think there are mainly older “teen boys”.

Main entry, currently rating 8 (maybe a bit lower)

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.

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?

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.
