Comment: Some teen boys in different shorts, but probably most shorts aren’t shiny. Maybe the red and yellow ones. Also the red shorts of a man look shiny. Pics from s1e9 The Race. Other colors include dark blue, black, medium green, light blue and light pink (Pugwall, but not shiny). Pic 1 on left showing the drummer Orfo sitting in red shorts; my favourite band member.

Also young men shirtless in board shorts also a boy in season 2 but very brief scenes and from a distance. I don’t know all episodes (especially season 1 needs to be rechecked) but obviously few or no scenes in other episodes.

Interesting series, I used to watch back then. Also a girl and older teen boy in bib overalls, other blog, rating 5. For shorts, rating ~3-4 only.

Comment: Cole and Dylan Sprouse and other boys in mainly longer, medium blue shiny Soccer shorts (also sitting), the other team in longer red shorts (also a team in black ones), goalkeeper in black and also yellow ones. Also at least one boy in yellow shorts outside the field. I think Cole in light blue shorts but not sure if shiny, Dylan in black ones, woman in pink (probably not shiny).

How could I forgot this Soccer movie?

Dylan Sprouse (pictured in glasses, Cole without) also in bib overalls (since 2011 on my bib overalls blog, rating 4).

I haven’t seen this movie for a long time and have to recheck it. Also shirtless and cycling and bunk bed scenes.

I don’t like at all Dylan’s glasses and the boys are quite young, but I think I have to give at least rating 6-7. DVD title: Just 4 Kicks.

Update: I have briefly checked it. More scenes than assumed. Cole or Dylan in red Adidas shorts (brief scene) and the longer yellow shorts (other boy) are also Adidas. I think, I can identify 1 or 2 more brands. Also boys briefly in white and purple shorts. More pics soon. Not sure if it’s worth buying. I think rather few good scenes. Boys are young and mostly not that handsome. Update 2: Brand of medium blue and black is Score Sports.

Comment: Another, older suggestion, (Sorry, I’m running out of movies, please prepare for less frequent blogging and please more suggestions !).

One blond man in black Adidas sampdoria shorts with white stripes. Obviously black compression shorts underneath.

I don’t like men in shorts and I don’t like much black shorts either, but at least compression shorts, so rating 2 instead of 1. For the sake of completion. I don’t have any posts rating 1, so this is my least favourite one. He’s not that old or ugly, though. I only have checked this briefly.

Comment: Boys, girls (including at least teen girls) and I think men and women in both red and medium blue shiny shorts. Also sitting scenes (bench, lawn and one boy elsewhere). Episode 325 Fußball – Das Wunder von Bärstadt.

Has been aired today, but I missed most of it. So needs to be rechecked more carefully at slow speed. I think several scenes in this episodes, but very few in the complete series.

Rating 6-7. Handsome boys and great sitting scenes, also close-up.

Also of interest: Die Aufnahmeprüfung (2012) has been aired yesterday. Longhaired Sandro Iannotta and an older boy in board shorts and other shorts.

Comment: At least this man shirtless in yellow 70s shorts. Not sure if shiny. Pic at 59 minutes. Is this 27 yo Nicholas Hammond? Looks even older.

I found this by coincidence and only have checked it briefly.

The man is too old. But yellow is interesting. Maybe someone like it?

So rating 2 only.

Comment: At least Steele Stebbins in colorful board shorts and Skyler Gisondo in red swim shorts. Ed Helms in blue/white, non-shiny shorts.

Should have been aired some days ago, but hasn’t. So I don’t know the complete movie, yet. Pic from a short YouTube clip.

I like the 1983 movie (shorts scenes, beige, pink, jeans, but I think none shiny). Maybe supporting actors?

Rating 3 for now only. (Mainly board shorts).

Comment: Some few young men/older teen boys shirtless in different shorts (maybe not all are shiny) including dark green (also sitting) and white Adidas  (white with red stripes). Also 70s style shorts including white and light blue. Pics 1, 3+4 from the beginning. One young lady in yellow 70s style shorts (scene at ~18 minutes). Definitely also cotton and ripped off shorts at least white and jeans.

I only have checked this briefly.

Typical movie of it’s kind. Few good scenes, mainly at the beginning. Probably no younger actors.

So rating 3-4 for now only. I think not officially on DVD.

Comment: A recent suggestion (both YouTube links are now dead). Several celebrities (males and females) and others in the background in shiny shorts including 70s style and also Adidas. Many different colors, probably all available.

I don’t know all episodes. There are few clips online and most in poor image quality.

I haven’t found notable younger kids or teens.

Pic 1 from May 4th 1980, pic 2 from Dec 4th 1988 cycling in light blue shorts, pic 3 from 1978 (Robin Williams episode), blue 70s style is a woman. Pic 4 from 1979. I also found pics on IMDb with yellow Adidas (man in 1976). Heather Thomas and William Shatner in 1982 in light grey shorts.

Rating 3-4 for now. Maybe I miss some good scenes.

Comment: Some older teen boys/young men playing Soccer in medium blue and black shorts. One thinner and one thick stripe at one side, also on the shirts. Not sure about this brand. At least one in longer grey shorts. Actors in blue shorts include 20 yo Nick Roux and I think 15 yo Blake Michael.

Also on my bib overalls blog (teen girls rating 3).

Nothing special and few good scenes. Older boys,

so rating 2-3 only.

Comment: Boys and girls almost always in red and dark yellow shorts. Also wet and muddy scenes and few sitting scenes.

Unlike the 1989 UK series, I haven’t found any bib overalls. And the yellow shorts are darker and maybe not or not that shiny.

There were 375 episodes but I only found some very few on YouTube.

Pic 1 from May 11, 1989. Pic 2 from s1e7 (season 1?) with a pool. Pic 3 from s1e6 with Leonardo DiCaprio in yellow and Danny Pintauro in red. Pic 4 showing muddy scenes in s1e22. On the left a girl. Mud is eggs. Good close-up scenes in s2e5.

Rating 7-8 for now.
