Comment: First a young girl in purple shorts (YouTube vid missing upper and lower parts), a lady in tight, silver shiny shorts and some more men, women and boys (partly shirtless) in shorts (mainly board shorts) and or swimwear, but I think mainly or only from a distance.

To those who prefer females. I haven’t noticed any good scenes for me. Typical movie of it’s kind. There are better ones. The silver shorts are rather plastic pants and not really shiny shorts.

So rating 2-3 only.

Rating:  5/10 *
Rating: *****
Comment: Some boys in shorts as well as some few scenes shirtless in swim shorts in the 1991 episode “Summer Camp” which is about blind kids and counselor.

Has been aired some days ago, but I missed some parts. Not as good as some other episodes (like s2e1, also at summer camp, see main entry, rating up to 7).

Justin Gocke (1978-2014, “Santa Barbara”, also on my overalls blog) as 10 yo Eric in red and other track shorts (pic 2) and a man (Tom Sullivan) in red swim shorts.

Some handsome boys, (another, unknown blonde boy even more of interest than Gocke) but most shorts are not shiny. A very good scene of a tug of war game where the kids falling down.

Another blind boy in yellow and yellow/colorful shorts. Same pair (pic 1) also used for swimming and on he water slide.

Great series, I own seasons 1-3 only.

Comment: At least this teen boy in blue swim shorts in an indoor pool. I found a brief clip on one of my VHS recordings, some time ago and I don’t remember in which episode. Maybe also some more actors/actresses in other episodes?

Interesting series. As usual many guest stars. I remember few episodes, most notably one starring Eddie Karr (probably not in shiny shorts). I sometimes confound this with “Touched by an Angel (1994)”, another interesting series with a different black lady, which needs to be checked as well.

Rating 4-5 for this episode. Needs to be rechecked.

Update: Wie erziehe ich meine Eltern?

wieerzieheichmeineeltern-s1e11wieerzieheichmeineeltern-s1e11c

Some more and even better scenes in s1e11. And shirtless scenes and black swim shorts of Felix (few and brief scenes at the end).

Felix also in dark blue, modern Adidas shorts and Johanna in black Adidas shorts. Also some few other kids in shiny shorts including a girl in white ones. Also the dad of Felix in blue Adidas shorts.

Main entry rating 5, now maybe a bit higher

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.

Comment: 12 or 13 yo Matthew Lawrence shirtless in black swim shorts. Also some others, mainly or only men.

On Easter on TV. Of course, I’ve seen this movie several time before, but I only remember this brief pool scene and don’t know if he’s also outside the water in these swim shorts.

Great movie, very handsome actor.

For the brief scene rating 5-6 for now only. Please also note my previous entry.

I wish all my readers a Happy Easter!

Update: Now completetly seen again. Matthew Lawrence only in the pool and no notable others. Pierce Brosnan in short, black swim shorts.

Clothing occurence: medium
Rating:  9/10
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: ***
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.

Main entry, rating 9 at

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
