As announced there are Basketball teams in the final episode 922 (March 28) in red, green and medium blue shorts. Home team including a girl I think in red shorts.

Comment: Some teen boys playing Soccer in different shorts. Mainly shown teams in medium blue shorts with 2 yellow boarder stripes (pic 2 probably Theodore Borders), other team in black. Ben Foster as main character Tucker in dark green and black shorts (goalkeeper).

While warming up, one teen boy in yellow and one in red shorts. One black shorts has yellow parts. All pics from ep 15.

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

Some interesting shorts. But rather few good scenes. And I don’t like Tucker.

So rating 5 only.


Update 2: You Can’t Do That on Television


Some more episodes of this great comedy series. As said, some episodes are currently hard or not to find and most have poor quality.

Pic 1 from ep Medicine (1983) showing a boy, maybe Alasdair in dark blue 70s shorts, also sitting in class (side view). Pic 2 from an unknown episode (YouTube clip called ycdt stephanie 2) obviously redhaired Christian Tessier in red shorts. Also others in shorts but not shiny.

Pic 3 from clip “kid outsmarts teacher” showing a boy sitting probably in green shorts. I haven’t found better scenes of that. Pic 4 probably showing Alasdair in red and Doug in white shorts in ep 57 Courage (1984).

I also found red shorts in ep Drugs (1981) maybe not shiny, dark blue and white shorts in Nature (probably not shiny), white and red shorts in Fitness. Boy in white cycling, others sitting. Alasdair in white shorts in Relatives (are these shiny ?)

Thanks Doug for finding the following

Season 5. Episode 12. (Ambition ?) Ben Schreiner sitting with Lisa, Ben dancing in white shorts.
Season 5. Episode 13 (Clubs ?). Ben in black, standing with Christine & Les, standing golfing, sitting with christine and with all the cast, in white, at the end of the show.
Season 6. Episode 4. (Relatives, 1985 ?) Alasdair Gillis in white sitting with Les on the set and again with Les (playing a doctor) sitting at his desk.

Pics of Ambition and Relatives can be found on the barthsburgery site.

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.


Info 61: Updates


I have uploaded some better pics of some movies. I still don’t want to show too much flesh, close-ups or indescent pics (this blog is just about the shorts). But it’s better to show the complete scene, height of the actors and the like, instead of just parts of the shorts.

Haydaze (pic 1)

Laura und Luis (pic 2) and one more, currently also in the TOP 10

Pfefferkuchen im Juli (pic 4)

James at 15 (pic 3)

Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: Mainly older teen boys and teen girls in both dark red (yellow stripe) and green shorts (white boarders). Not sure if shiny. The girl’s ones are rather tight and look more shiny. Rather few scenes and mainly from a distance. Track & Field. Also starring 18 yo Clint Howard but I haven’t noticed him.

There’s also a related 1981/1982 sitcom, but I don’t know it and I think not officially on DVD.

Unfortunately again just older teens and few scenes.

So rating 3 only.

Comment: I think Anthony Ursin, around 11 or 12 yo, shirtless in shiny green shorts with white stripes. Also cycling (shirtless as well). Inside and outside at a beach. Also in the sea, but I think not coming out of it. So no tag wet.

Very interesting.

Rating 7-8.

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.

Russian title: Выше радуги.

Comment: At least two great scenes. Best at 1h00 (pics 1+3) At least one boy in dark blue, shiny Adidas shorts with yellow stripes and bottom border. Some more boys, including older teen boys but mainly not shiny or from a distance.

Another scene at 40 minutes. Mainly shown some older teen boys/young men. Light red shorts, tight, light green shorts, dark blue 70s style, medium blue, white (not shiny) and some more. Also some young boys here but briefly and from a distance (including light blue shorts.

By rechecking my older entries on my bib overalls blog, I came across this nice 80s movie. Also nice bedroom scenes, soon on my other blog, like an update on my overalls blog.

Rating 6-7. Needs to be rechecked later more carefully at slow speed.
