Comment: Some Soccer boys in longer light blue and red shorts. Goalkeeper (main character) in black. Most or all wearing long black tights underneath. (Tagging as sweat pants). I almost forgot this movie.

I haven’t seen the complete movie, but obviously only this brief scene at the beginning only.

Available on the ARD mediathek.

Some boys are handsome.

Rating 4 only, due to the brief scene.

Comment: Some boys and teen boys in shorts, shiny shorts and speedos including shirtless scenes, also in shiny shorts. A blonde boy in red Adidas shorts (is it Adidas ?), another older boy in medium blue 70s style tight shorts (also shirtless, sitting and cycling). Younger boys in white, light grey and/or light blue shorts. Maybe not all shorts are shiny.

Quite interesting movie but could be better.

Rating 5-6. I think not on DVD.

Comment: Some boys at PE (6th grade only?) in different shorts in ep 2. Most in light blue shorts with one red stripe at the sides. But also medium blue, dark blue, black and red. Not sure about the fabric. At least the medium blue shorts are shiny (2 teen boys, shorts appearing darker in the shadow). Also good rear view (light blue). Most shorts are tight. The dark shorts are probably of cotton and have one white stripe, almost US style.

Interesting movie and shorts. But in total rather few scenes.

Rating 6-7.

English title: The Adventures of the Electronic, Russian title: Приключения Электроника. Filmed in 1979 (or earlier). So maybe one of the earliest ones in the Soviet Union with shiny shorts.

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.

Rating: *****
Comment: Some kids at and in a lake shirtless in swimwear near the beginning. Most notable this handsome blonde boy in mainly dark blue swim shorts (probably not or not that shiny). One other, maybe younger boy sitting far in the background in medium blue (shiny ?) shorts, one or two others in light blue and other blue (board) shorts including an older teen boy.

Has been aired on Easter. The first half is quite good but later it’s very boring. Also on my pigtails blog (rating 6) and on my bedroom blog (rating 3).

For swim shorts rating 5-6. Unfortunately rather few (good) scenes. Several more kids, but mostly from a distance. Also girls but none or no notable in shorts.

Update: Respiro (2002)

respiro6respiro5

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

Rating: *********
Comment: Several, mainly teen boys including Francesco Casisa (pics 1+2) and men in shorts, mainly shirtless. Also other interesting scenes and clothes including speedos, underwear and even less.

How on Earth could I forgot this masterpiece? I even own it on DVD for several years. Perfect movie, rating 10. For shorts rating 9-10 for now. I have to recheck the complete movie at slow speed, including the long making of, for more perfect scenes and all colors.

Most notable, of cource, main character Pasquale. Half of the time in shorts, most often in the light blue ones (a bit ripped at the side), and most often shirtless. Also in light red and dark blue shorts but not or not that shiny.

Shirtless in light blue shorts also sitting at the beginning. Oversized yellow shorts later. Pics 3+4 showing a fighting scene at 36 minutes with many (older) teen boys. Very interesting are the medium blue shorts. (Almost) 70s style. Many teen boys and men also shirtless in shorts at the end but mainly from a distance. One younger boy in beige or yellow shorts (coming soon) and some more in white, yellow and blue ones.

Even better are the (wet) speedo and underwear scenes. Undressing the shorts for swimming in the sea (light blue speedo or underwear/briefs underneath). But this blog is about shiny shorts.

Also on my bedroom blog (rating 6).

As said rating 9-10 for now. I prefer Adidas, 70s and 80s setting and younger actors.

Update: also 12 yo Filippo in white and yellow shorts. Also green, beige and black ones in he fighting scene.

Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Although set in 1958 (I think all parts, including the spin-offs), there are some shorts that appear shiny or sort of. I have briefly checked all or almost all parts. Mainly older teen boys / young men including Momo (Bobby) shirtless in tight black shorts (pic 3 from Lemon Popsicle VII). Also there one young man in dark blue shorts and one in grey.

Pic 1 showing a young man in light blue shorts, I think from movie 1. Pic 2 showing a young boy in medium blue shorts in movie 8 (Summertime Blues: Lemon Popsicle VIII, 1988). Probably some more supporting actors. Also cotton shorts and speedos. I mainly remember movie 3 with a young boy completely without clothes and peeing on Johnny, buried in the sand. Maybe they don’t pay much attention of the actors in the background. Shiny shorts (except for boxers) were rare in the 1950s (up to the late 70s) and anachronistic to me.

Revenge of the Nerds II reminds me of this series. Original title (part 1)  אסקימו לימון

Most boys are very old. Rather few shiny shorts. And nowadays not very funny.

So rating 2-3 only.

Also soon on my sailor suit blog and pigtails blog.

Update: There are also older teen girls in tight, blue shorts in film #1, but not sure if these are shiny. One pic on my pigtails blog, rating 5.

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

allinclusive5allinclusive4

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.

Comment: Several young women and men shirtless in swimwear near the beginning (at 7 minutes) at an outdoor pool scene including a lady and I think a man in turqouise shorts (pic 2), also another man in light blue shorts. Some young men sitting in and at at a hot tub shirtless in red shorts at 17 minutes (pic 1). A beach scene at 31 minutes (ladies in black and light blue shorts (pic 3), men in green, light blue, colorful and I think pink shorts). One lady in tight yellow white stripes shorts and bikini bra at 41 minutes. Maybe some more. Also men in underwear including tighty whiteys and other swim wear and jeans shorts.

I only have checked it partly and haven’t noticed any young kids. Most scenes appear to be very short and either from a distance or very close up.

Parts 3-4 (1992, 1994) are probably even worse. Best is part 1 (1984) rating 3
