Comment: Shad Moss aka Lil Bow Wow in white and orange Basketball shorts. Also men at least in white, orange and grey shorts. But rather few scenes.

Typical Basketball shorts/scenes. Although I like orange and grey shorts.

I don’t like Lil Bow Wow, so rating 2-3 only.

Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~3 as well.

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.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: I knew it. Next to the swimming scenes (speedos and trunks) there’s also this Soccer (PE) scene in s3e4 with teen boys in long shorts in many different colors. Nick Julius Schuck (middle, behind another boy), both in medium blue shorts.

I think not all shorts are shiny or that shiny. Most likeley shiny are the green and red ones. Not sure about light grey. Black and most dark blue ones probably not shiny.

2 years later Nick Julius Schuck is around 15 and very thin but still handsome. I even forgot to watch the recent 2 episodes. The episodes getting again extremely touching. Now also on my bedroom blog, rating 3.

For this brief scene rating 4-5. Main entry, rating 6 at



Update: De bal is rond


I found some more scenes of the described yellow and light grey shorts. And yesterday also orange shorts, I didn’t remember and found earlier.

Shirt labeled with “lotto”, not sure about the shorts but probably. Brand or sponsor?

Rating ~7 for this new pics. Also teen girls in shiny shorts, but I have to search for more pics.

Main entry rating 10

Comment: At least one young men (Steve Antin ?) in light grey shorts (probably not shiny) and white underwear underneath making sit-ups. Also a young lady in tight red shiny Adidas shorts and men (boxing) in red, dark blue and I think black shorts (black maybe not shiny). Maybe some more colors?

Many, many years ago, at it’s airing in Germany in ~1990, I somehow liked the scene in pic 1. But now, I prefer younger actors. Maybe someone is interested in young men or women.

To me rating 2-3 only.

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.

Comment: Some boys in Basketball shorts (pic from song: Ezekiel Saw the Wheel) also a cheerleading girl in light grey shorts and a toddler boy and older girl sitting in shiny dark blue shorts. Probably some more.

Pic 2 showing a shirtless boy sitting in wet, light green / turqouise swim shorts in “Who Did (Swallow Jonah)?” from DVD Silly Songs (1995). But few and brief scenes. Also a boy sitting in purple short, but I think not shiny.

Also many boys and girls in bib overalls and shortalls, partly raw denim (other blog, rating 8), especially in DVD Songs of America.

I don’t know all clips. Rating 4-5 for now only. I assume rather few shiny shorts scenes.

Update: James at 15


Next to the perfect swim shorts scenes of Lance Kerwin (rating 10, TOP rank #4, see my TOP 10 pic on the right coloumn) and the locker room scenes, I also found some more PE scenes on YouTube (episode Champions). I didn’t knew that they are on YouTube.

Several shorts and also sitting scenes, including light and dark blue, white, red and grey. Probably not all shiny. Lance Kerwin also in medium blue speedos in the pilot.

I still haven’t checked all episodes. Rating ~7 for these shorts.

Also soon on my bedroom and pigtails blog.

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.


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
