I have briefly rechecked this episode (s1e3) and uploaded a better, complete pic of this one, 16 yo Scott Baio shirtless in wet, white shiny shorts with 3 red stripes (not sure if these are Adidas). Also showing Kristy McNichol in white shorts but probably not shiny.
I have briefly checked some episodes of season 1 , but haven’t found any other scenes of interest.
Also recently 2 episodes on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl, rating up to 3).
Main entry here, rating 9 (maybe now a bit lower) at
I have briefly checked several episodes, mainly of seasons 8-12 (and I own seasons 13+14). I found some few more pool scenes of younger Christopher and John Ross. junior and others.
Pic 1 showing Christopher shirtless in brown/colorful or similar wet swim shorts (not shiny) in s10e3 (sitting and also walking rear view, distance). Pic 2 probably John Ross jun. in s9e27 I think in shiny swim shorts (white and black ?). Underwater scenes, also over water but few and brief scenes and distance.
Christopher also in bathing trunks, light blue or similar in s10e5, John Ross jun. in red speedos in s8e2 and a toddler (Eric Farlow as Christopher ??) in dark blue shiny shorts sitting in s8e2. There are probably more swimming scenes (of others, mainly men) in earlier episodes, but I don’t have the time to check all episodes.
Much better, of course, is older Omri Katz in purple shorts (rating 10, TOP#1)
While updating my bib overalls blog, I found 2 more episodes with shorts.
Some teen girls in s1e22. Most shorts might not be shiny including light red, yellow, pink and medium blue. At least 2 girls in dark blue or similar shorts which are probably shiny, also sitting. And one younger girl in tight shortalls.
In s7e22 there’s a shirtless, black teen boy/young man in tight, medium blue shorts.
I don’t like any of those. The girls are quite interesting. Rating ~3-4.
Main entry, rating 3 (older teen boys)
I have briefly checked most episodes of season 1. 2 more and better pics, both from s1e3. Brandon Call and other boys in dark blue, shiny shorts. The rear view of Brandond Call looks somehow a bit strange. Maybe he’s a bit too thin.
Lots of supporting actors especially on the beach but mainly very brief scenes and from a distance.
Most men in red shorts. I have to check the later seasons (Jeremy Jackson and for supporting actors and girls/women).

One boy in green Adidas shorts in the pool also outside jumping into it (but brief scenes).

Main entry (1 more pic of this episode)
Originally, I just wanted to upgrade some pics on my Lederhosen blog (soming soon) and so I found some more great shiny shorts scenes. All from episode 27, which is also the best showing boys in Lederhosen (long and tight+short). How could I miss this scenes/episode?
Unfortunately, the scenes are short, and in the series, boys and men are mainly in the distance and rather few (good) scenes.
Pic at at the beginning showing a boy in tight, light blue shorts (also rear view later, shorts in the butt crack). The shorts have shadow stripes like the late 80s Adidas shorts. Splitted at the sides but probably aren’t Adidas. Obviously missing the stripes and they’re too tight. Splitted and shadow stripes so not Adidas Junior. Or maybe the stripes are faded.
Pic 2 showing a boy in dark blue Adidas shorts. I think only this close-up scene.
Pic 3 showing a boy from a distance in purple shorts with wide turqouise or light blue sides. Also others in 80s cotton shorts including colorful and black.
I have to recheck the complete series and especially this episode, but am currently too busy and have something else to watch. Light blue and purple are my favourite colors.

Some more scenes of the US Fox’s Fun House. Some interesting actions like piggyback, kneeing and wheelbarrow race. Maybe all pics from 1990.
Pic 1 from YouTube clip called FFH-02 (also with older girls), pic 2 from FFH-22, pic 3 from FFH-08, pic 4 from FFH-19.
Sorry, I’m quite busy and running out of movies.

Some more pics of the 1989 UK show (although I prefer the 1988 US show and I recently paid more attention to that).
As said, the yellow shorts are lighter than in the US show which don’t appear that shiny.
Girls also wore black skirts (at least in 1997).
Pics 1+3 from s2e5, pic 2 from s1e12.
Also updated on my bib overalls blog.
Some time ago, Adidasfan made some suggestion, but mainly about women, and I already had Fun House.
In this clip, kids putting on wet Umbro shorts over their shorts they wore.
Very interesting and I didn’t identify the brand earlier. Unfortunately a quite bad image quality, filmed off a screen. Maybe there’s a better clip? Or even better ones?
I now can confirm girls in shorts. I will make more posts later also of the USA show.
YouTube clip called “Funhouse umbro nylon shorts”. Suggestions in the comments of
