Comment: Some boys and girls, I think both in tight, plain red and white shorts playing Volleyball outside. (Or the boys in red and girls in white). I’m not sure, but the shorts are probably not shiny. But still interesting. The red shorts reminds me of “Ask Max”, rating 9 which is even rare.


I haven’t seen the movie and currently don’t have any pics.

Needs to be rechecked later. I assume few scenes. Main character is a 13 yo girl.

Rating 3-4 for now.

Novel by Hans-Ulrich Lüdemann.

Comment: Some Soccer boys in different shorts including medium blue, dark blue, white, black and one in light green (looks more like a girl). Also girls in shiny shorts including white. I think not all shorts are shiny, but at least the green, medium blue and white ones. Also close-up scenes. Maybe I can identify some brands, later.

By rechecking this movie on my bib overalls blog (boy, rating 6, just updated), I found this scene by coincidence. How could I miss it?

Very interesting, but I haven’t checked the complete movie.

Rating 6-7 for now.


Update: Löwenzahn


By coincidence, I found this brief scene on one of my VHS.

One blonde boy (or is it a girl ?) in dark blue Puma shorts (not sure if shiny) and one girl in shiny red,  shorts (not sure if Adidas Junior or looks like unknown 2 stripes brand).

I don’t know in what episode. Probably an early one in the early or mid 80s. I briefly checked all episodes before. Maybe it’s from Pusteblume? But more likely from Löwenzahn.

Brief scene (?), rating 4-5.

Main entry (boys, later episode), rating 6


Update 3: Kidsongs


Some more pics/scenes of Kidsongs.

I already had the white, shiny Soccer shorts (goalkeeper boy in red) but this showing another scene. Also boys and girls in black shorts in the same song. New YouTube clip called Kidsongs TV Show – Let’s Learn Yo Yo Tricks – Dancing Kids – Fun For Kids.

Pic 3 from TV Show We Love Kids Sports ! – Take Me Out To the Ballgame – Basketball Kids. Next to one of the girls in light blue shiny shorts (I already had) also yellow and black, dark blue and grey. Maybe not all shiny.

In pic 4 there’s again light blue but also a girl in purple shorts on the left (same ep.). Also track&field, black boys in white shorts (maybe not shiny).

Also an update of Kidsongs TV Show on my overalls blog f,m rating 7.

Main entry here, rating 8 f,m

Comment: Several boys and also girls, mainly older teen boys in different shorts, also shirtless and also sitting, maybe not all shorts are shiny.

Shiny might be light red, 70s style, purple (including 1 younger boy ~11 yo), light green (young boy), light blue, and maybe white and black. Some young girls in light grey shorts (maybe not shiny). One girl inside probably in shiny light red shorts.

Comment: At least this chubby boy, I think it’s B. Bradenton Harper in dark blue, longer shorts with white borders (and I think white speedos, underwear or similar underneath). Also shirtless and sitting. Shorts appear shorter in the water. Different pair?

I haven’t seen the complete movie, yet. But looks very interesting.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Update: Now completely checked at high speed, so I replaced the pics. More scenes than first assumed. Also a girl in red shorts (I think Elizabeth McCormick as sister Pam). Some few good scenes. Rather 6 than 7. DVD cover looks much better. Also on my overalls blog (woman rating 2).

Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Boys and girls in longer, dark blue and dark red shiny shorts including main character Marny Kennedy as Taylor in s1e8. At least the blue shorts are from brand Admiral. Another episode is s1e10 (The Cross Country) in medium blue and black shorts, but I think not shiny.

Another great and funny Australian series. Although I don’t like Hector, but Taylor is nice. Also soon on my pigtails log, rating 7.

I haven’t checked all episodes. Maybe swim shorts as well?

For now rating 6-7.

Comment: One girl, maybe Natasha Phillips, in pink shorts (not sure if the fabric is shiny). The other girl in the light blue shorts might be Maia Mitchell, but her shorts aren’t shiny. Also other (teen) girls in at least dark blue and black shorts and also teen boys in shorts (including shirtless scenes like in ep 11) but I think not or not that shiny (I think mainly or only in colorful board shorts). Also muddy scenes at a beach in ep 4. Wet scenes (boy+girl, longer black shorts) in ep 15.

Pic from ep 15. Also a young blonde, pigtailed girl (Matilda Terbio) in tight shortalls (overalls blog, rating 4) and also purple shorts in ep 11 (similar like the pink ones).

I don’t know all episodes. Wrong cover image and description on IMDb. Prequel series to CastAway (2011) which also needs to be checked.

Rating 3-4 for now only. Also soon on my pigtails blog.
