Comment: Some older teen girls and teen boys mainly in short shorts playing Basketball. Pics from s1e1. Maybe most shorts are not or not that shiny. Not sure about the light green ones. One teen girl in shiny, longer, red Basketball shorts and of course teen boys in longer shiny Basketball shorts. I think also boys (shirtless) in board shorts in other episodes including 11 yo Paul Butcher.

Very good and funny family series. But I watch mainly for Dustin. Series is currently running on Germany’s Nick.

Also on my bedroom blog (bunk bed) rating 4 also showing some pics of Dustin.

For short rating 5 for now only.

Comment: Two boys in dark blue and yellow swim shorts in s2e10 and Soccer boys and girls in black, white and blue shorts s2e4.

Also a boy (Bernard) in light blue shorts sitting on the grass, a girl in red and a boy in green shorts (Soccer) and some in the locker room. Unknown episode. YouTube clip “Titles and special effects”.

After Woof!, I also found this nice series from the same Director.

Funny plot about stopping the time. I assume rather few good scenes. Kids are also quite young. I haven’t checked all episodes.

Rating 6-7 for now. Also on my pigtails blog, rating 4.

Comment: I almost forgot to post this other episode of “Auf die Plätze..”. Captured in Dec 2002, could also been the time of airing. Or recorded earlier in the late 90s.

Several boys and young teen boys (at least 20+, probably around 40) outside doing track and field, half of them in white (non-Adidas) shorts, the others in green Adidas shorts (with inner briefs). Green Addias shorts are rather rarely shown (in movies) and I think rarely worn in the 80s. Blue and red were much more common.  Not only the colors were preferred but probably also the (German) Soccer clubs wearing those. I think only one or two clubs wearing green in the early 80s (Werder Bremen and Borussia Mönchengladbach ?), see this list


As announced, I only have some very short clips but I don’t like this one of older boys.

The previous post is much better (rating 7).


I somewhere have a clip of handsome Bavarian boys, I think in blue Adidas shorts in a studio (rating ~7), but I have to search for it and I’m not sure if this is from this series as well. Coming soon.

Comment: Robert Rusler, around 19 yo shirtless in dark green, I think shiny shorts (as nightwear), also earlier at least 2 young men in red shorts, one with grey sweat pants underneath, one in black shorts, some others in white shorts and a lady in light grey shorts (maybe most are not shiny). There’s also an outdoor pool scene at night, but again most or all shorts aren’t shiny.

Great movie (series). As a young adult, I liked the scene with the green shorts (and Freddy’s claw through the body and door) and the shower scene, but nowadays I prefer younger actors.

So rating 5-6 only. I have to recheck also the other parts.

Comment: At least this teen boy shirtless and wet in light turquoise swim shorts in s1e6 coming out of the water. First I thought that this might be just boxer shorts / underwear but obviously this are real swim shorts (pockets hanging out).

I don’t remember all episodes. Maybe some more and other actors? A sequel series is “Die Kinder vom Alstertal” (rating 5) no pics, yet.

Also on my bib overals blog, rating 8 (f/m)

Rating 4-5 only for this very brief scene.

Comment: I’m not 100% sure, if this pic from an older VHS recording belongs to this series, but probably. A Bavarian magazine about Bavarian PE. This pic showing Handball playing boys, around 8-10 yo. One team in red Adidas, the boy pictured wears an oversized and modern pair (Basketball style ?), I think others in other red, also non-Adidas shorts. The other team in older, 80s style black Adidas shorts (orange stripes ?), I think shiny as well. Note that the cords hanging outside. Also a nice mullet haircut.

I also have some few and short parts of 1 or 2 other episodes with older teens (track), but I make separate posts of that. I rarely watched this monthly series. Maybe I even missed even better scenes. I remember that there were only brief clips, few minutes long.

Rating 7-8.


Previously rated 7, but I found another boy in white Adidas shorts


Some more Handball boys in wite and red shorts, rating 5

Comment: Some boys and maybe teen boys and men in swim shorts, speedos and other swimwear. Most notably a boy in tight green/colorful swim shorts sitting and has to adjust his legs of the swim shorts when standing up. Also a boy in light red swim shorts. Unfortunately, I don’t know the complete film. But this is probably the best scenes.

Rating 8 for now.

First posted on my Lederhosen blog (Story 97: adjusting swim shorts ). Animated GIF is 8 MB.

Comment: Brian Bonsall (pic 1) shirtless in wet, red swim shorts (probably not shiny) and some more boys in swim shorts, most notably one boy in light green shorts (probably shiny).

Sorry for the bad pics. I have to recheck this movie more carefully the next broadcasting. I mainly remember this pool and slide scene. Maybe the only scene of interest (showing shorts ?)

Rating 6-7 for now.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Bonsall, rating 5).

Update: Respiro (2002)


I still hadn’t the time to check the complete DVD at slow speed, but checked many scenes including the making-of.

There’s also 12 yo Filippo Pucillo as younger brother of Pasquale in shiny white (or cream) and also yellow shorts. Scene at 45 minutes.

In the fighting scene at 36 minutes there is also at least one younger boy in green shiny shorts (with a white stripe) and as announced one or two in beige shorts. One with a red stripe and leg boarders. The light blue one with a dark blue stripe and also Filippo’s and maybe the light grey and dark blue ones are maybe the same brand. Also one or two in black. Some shorts are not shiny including light red and  jeans shorts. Many shorts of the older teen boys are longer (dark blue, black, yellow) than those of the younger boys.

Main entry, still rating 9 at



Update: All Inclusive – Mit Kind und Koffer zur neuen Liebe


The later episodes aren’t as good as episode 3. Some good, but very brief scenes in yesterday’s final episode 6 including light blue, neon green and yellow shorts. Some more board shorts are shown including dark and medium blue, dark green, yellow and some colorful.

Very interesting is a sitting scene of 13 yo boy Luca in pic 3. Most other boys are younger. Mainly the grown-ups are shown.

A bit touching at the end (some boys crying). I still haven’t checked ep 1+2.

Rating around 6 for this episode.
