Update 2: Achterbahn (1992)

achterbahn9achterbahn-derandere

For now, the final update of Achterbahn.

Pic 1 showing a Soccer boy in white shiny shorts, probably from ep. 9. Probably more boys of this and the other teams. Pic 2 from ep 33 “Der Andere” (completely on YouTube).  Nice PE and locker room scenes. Also shirtless, but I think rather few shiny shorts. Reminds me of “Sich kennenlernen, sich vertragen”.

Rating ~6-7

I have to search for more episodes. Many swim scenes, but I think mainly or only in speedos and non-shiny shorts.

Main entry rating 7 at

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.

Comment: Dominik and Matthias of band Ketch-up in German Adidas soccer shirts and black shorts. Probably here the song “Eins Zu Null (Hangin’ Tough)”. Also in blue shiny shorts either in this and/or in RTL Kinderhitparade (rating 9). I don’t like the modern black shorts. Maybe more shorts/others?

I found this very brief clip by coincidence on one of my VHS tapes as it was not labeled with this. Around 1 minute only, which is at the end of the show. Not sure if I have more clips on other tapes. Blue shorts probably from a different episode. I only have this 2 scenes. One from a distance showing both boys on the far left, at least showing a bit from the shorts (length of shorts, height of boys). Pic 2 showing a close-up of one of them (maybe Matthias ?) Sorry, no better pics of both (in this show).

Aka “MiniStars” and “Li-La-Launebär präsentiert Die MiniStars”. There’s also a Dutch show/band called De MiniStars and in other countries (with other kids). But I don’t know of shorts in there.

No DVD nor clips known. At least there are CDs. For more infos see RTL Kinderhitparade. Does anybody has better pics or clips especially of the blue shorts?

List 5: Companies, brands, countries

kinderenvoorkinderen4b

After finding an unknown Austrian (or other) brand and nice Dutch shorts, I make this list (work in progress). Any help is appreciated. Maybe I’ll make separate tags or lists (Adidas are too much, maybe for Adidas Junior or rare models or color). I have to find more close-up scenes. Most or all companies making shorts for both sports and swimwear. Not sure about other sports like boxing. Pic from Kinderen voor Kinderen 4.

Update: I could identify another brand OLAN worn in Cebollitas. They wore some other brands including Adidas and one yet unknown with a diamond Logo and pattern. Maybe I will make a list about Cebollitas. One minute later, I found the brand with the diamond, that they mainly wore in Cebollitas: Umbro. Thanks to Erik for pointing out the Rucanor shorts!

Update: Achterbahn (1992)

achterbahn-ep44achterbahn-ep28

Some more episodes. Pic 1 showing 2 boys in ep 44. One in medium blue shiny shorts with sweatpants underneath (what is very rare in Germany), the other one in dark blue (or black) shiny shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy boxing in light blue shiny shorts in ep 28.

At least one update coming soon (white Soccer).

I also have checked some more of It (2017). The yellow shorts aren’t shiny. Damn. I have uploaded a better pic of the red ones.

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.

Update: Der Tag, an dem Anton den Widerlan fand

widerlanwiderlan2g

I finally found my tape. In total around 2-3 minutes (interrupted). Only one PE scene, around 1 minute. First, one boy in shiny, light red shorts and later the sporty, blonde boy (last pic in the middle) in light green shorts, probably the same brand, unknown if shiny. Can anybody identify the brand? Looks like an “LO” or <O. On the sides are white patterns like a row of “><” .

One more pic of a chubby boy sitting in medium blue shorts in the main entry (only shown from a distance). There’s also a girl in pink shorts (probably not shiny) and the chubby boy in large, white shorts (non shiny, pic 4 on the left). Anton is on the right. He usually wore belted, light blue, purple checkered cotton shorts/knickers.

The sporty boy is later shown at home sitting on an exercise bike but in long, light grey cotton pants. I haven’t made a vid, just some few pics at higher res.

Rating: ****
Comment: Some Soccer boys in I think shiny, plain white shorts. Also some sitting in the background. There were also commercials of other sports including hurdles (man in shiny yellow 70s shorts in 1989) and maybe some more. Most other sports (including Handball) has people in long pants. Swimming in speedos.

I found 2 clips on YouTube, one in bad (this one) and one in very bad and darker image quality. Maybe there are more (untitled) commercial compilations including this as well? I somewhere have it partly on VHS but I think the end (from a distance) only.

One handsome boy with spiked hair (headshot). Also shown Otto Rehagel.

Rating 4-5.

Update 2: Manni, der Libero

manniderlibero-ep13

The home team including Thomas Ohrner (on left) mainly wore blue Adidas shorts with yellow stripes (and inner briefs), see other entry, but also the regular blue ones with white stripes which look much better to me. I think rather few scenes in ep 13 (pictured) and I think in ep 4 in ironed shorts (but I don’t like that).

Main entry, rating 6 (also 2 more posts including Puma shorts)

Comment: There are obviously Soccer scenes of probably older teen boys or men in shiny blue and red shorts. And also swimming scenes (not sure if just speedos or swim shorts as well).

I have or had a TV recording, but currently only found short clips and trailers.

So needs to be rechecked later.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 5.

There’s also a 2008 TV series, but I don’t remember shiny shorts in that.
