Comment: At least one young boy in medium blue shorts with black sides and probably Lee Thompson Young in longer light blue shorts and some others including teen girls in s3e14 (Beach Volleyball, mostly not shiny). I think a man sitting in purple shorts. Also pink, orange and other shorts (not shiny).

And also some men in shiny dark yellow, black and other shorts in s3e21 (tug of war and other games, some not shiny). If I remember it correctly at least one other episode with grey or beige shorts (teen girls, track ?) but probably not shiny.

I only have checked some episodes, mainly of season 3.

Also teen boys and teen girls in bib overalls (other blog, rating 6, soon to be updated).

I think in total rather few episodes and mainly older teens, so rating 2-3 only.

R.I.P. Lee Thompson Young.


Update: Hang Time (1995)


I found some more and even better scenes in this series. Most notable some younger boys in s3e20 in different coloured shorts including black, dark blue, light blue and yellow (pic 1). Maybe not all are shiny. Also a teen girl in dark blue or black shorts and light blue and white parts (also close-up).

The older teen boys in light blue shorts in several episodes (pic 2 from s1e13).

Unpictured: Dark blue and light blue shorts in s2e7, white shorts in s3e22 and several other shorts in s1e5 including a teen girl in purple ones. And a teen girl in black shorts in s4e1 (2 thick stripes).

Sitting scenes of teen boys and a teen girl in s3e23.

Who in shorts 2:

Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Several young men and also some young boys in shiny shorts. A young man in white Adidas shorts with dark blue stripes. One other man in yellow shorts, also interesting a man in dark green or black shorts (pic 2 on the far right with 2 short horizontal stripes). And a man in dark blue 70s style shorts with red boarders.

Young boys at least in black, dark green and light blue shorts. Maybe not all shorts are shiny.

I’m currently rechecking older entries of my bib overalls blog. (Rating 3)

I don’t remember the complete movie and have to recheck it, especially for teens and women. The earlier Jaws parts are definitely much better (coming later) but don’t have 80s shorts.

So rating 4-5 for now only.



Biography starring Sina Tkotsch

Year in film: ~1978 ?
Country: Germany
Who in shorts: boy ~8 ?

Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Clothing occurence: low+
Rating:  3/10 *
Rating: ***
Comment: One black boy shirtless in shiny, light blue shorts, also a white boy and girl in tight shorts and speedo, but not shiny. Also wet/muddy scenes (sliding down a hill). But in these scenes the shorts are very briefly shown.

As announced, this has been aired yesterday. Very interesting movie and plot (novel by Sabine Krueger). The main character is a girl (pictured).

I missed few parts of the beginning and also the end when the girl is older and is played by Sina Tkotsch.

The blonde girl pictured looks almost like a boy, and there’s another similar looking kid, who is a boy.

Good movie, but I prefer other movies. 2h11 minutes. English title: Jungle Child.

Rating 2-3 for the shorts. Movie rating ~4-5.

Comment: Three ladies, two in their 30s one around 27 yo (Karen Damen, Kristel Verbeke and Josje Huisman) in shiny light blue Adidas shorts, also in colorful shiny Adidas shorts including blue, pink, white; one with yellow stripes. Also another black lady in dark blue shiny shorts.

Another suggestion. Thanks very much!

I like light blue Adidas shorts and the dark blue ones are also nice. I don’t like at all the colorful ones.

Music clips are short and I don’t like these ladies (nor this kind of music).

So rating 5 only.


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)

Comment: First, 14 yo River Phoenix (pic 1 on left) in light grey shorts, but I think out of thin cotton and not shiny. Also later 19 yo Zach Galligan in light grey shorts. Also some teen boys outside in shorts, but also not sure which shorts are shiny or not. Maybe the dark blue ones? One older teen boy at a pool in light blue, I think shiny shorts. The boys are also shirtless in the pool, but I think not coming out of it. Maybe some more supporting actors but few and brief scenes and from a background. I think at the beginning of the movie only.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Heather O’Rourke, rating 5) and my bedroom blog, rating 6.

I like River Phoenix and the 80s, but I think most shorts aren’t shiny.

So rating 3-4 only for the few and brief scenes.

Aka “Surviving: A Family in Crisis” and “Tragedy”. I think it’s still not officially on DVD.

Comment: Some older teen boys/young men in different shorts. At least one in tight, I think black Adidas shorts, but maybe not shiny. One in yellow shorts, I think shiny, one in dark blue 70s shorts and at least 2 in rare, diagonal two-colored shorts /grey/white and light blue/white, I think 70s style.  Not sure about teen girls/women in shorts but I do think so (pic 2 on the left in green ?).

Some interesting scenes and shorts, but as usualy in these movies, the teens are quite old and maybe in their 20s.

Rating 3 only.


Update 3: Kidsongs


Some more pics/scenes of Kidsongs.

I already had the white, shiny Soccer shorts (goalkeeper boy in red) but this showing another scene. Also boys and girls in black shorts in the same song. New YouTube clip called Kidsongs TV Show – Let’s Learn Yo Yo Tricks – Dancing Kids – Fun For Kids.

Pic 3 from TV Show We Love Kids Sports ! – Take Me Out To the Ballgame – Basketball Kids. Next to one of the girls in light blue shiny shorts (I already had) also yellow and black, dark blue and grey. Maybe not all shiny.

In pic 4 there’s again light blue but also a girl in purple shorts on the left (same ep.). Also track&field, black boys in white shorts (maybe not shiny).

Also an update of Kidsongs TV Show on my overalls blog f,m rating 7.
