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.

Rating:  7/10 ?
Rating: *******
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.

Comment: At least some older teen girls and I think teen boys in track shorts in ep 7801 (2018), pictured and I also found shirtless older teen boys/young men in I think non-shiny board-shorts and teen girls in non-shiny shorts at an outdoor pool in a 1985 episode (YouTube clip titled Scott Robinson & Kim Taylor | Neighbors [1985]). Maybe some younger kids in the background?

I don’t know all episodes, almost 8000. Maybe there are more episodes of interest.

Rating 2-3 for now.

Also on my bib overalls blog, (f,m rating 4).

Sorry, I’m running out of good movies/series.

Where the Boys Are (1984)

Country: USA, UK
Who in shorts: men, women

Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low+
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Mainly some shirtless men or older teen boys and also women in different shorts and swimwear on a beach. Hundreds of supporting actors, I think younger boys as well (like in medium blue at 16 minutes). But most very briefly or from a distance.

Shorts in almost all colors, at least black, white, medium blue, light yellow (f,m), dark green (m) and red (f, m ?), I think also purple (woman) and grey or similar. Some shorts are not shiny but most. Scene pictured at 10 and 40 minutes. Best scenes at around 16 (and 10) minutes. Also women undressing her shorts (white, bikini underneath). Wet scenes in the sea. I think Adidas (f,m) at 10.

I’ve checked it some time ago and don’t remember much. Needs to be rechecked more carefully at slow speed.

Typical movie. I assume few (good) scenes. 2 longer scenes on the beach. Later a pool scene but probably not of interest.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

I’ve added the tab “Brands” on top after finder a new Danish brand in Gummi-Tarzan.

Oscar Mayer Bologna (1988 commercial)

Country: USA
Who in shorts: boy ~5 ?

Available on DVD: no

Clothing occurence: medium *
Rating:  2/10
Rating: **
Comment: A very young boy in longer white shorts and a young man or older teen boy in short, dark blue Adidas shorts (maybe not shiny ?, shorts appear darker in this clip and lighter on others). Basketball scene. Also headshots of the young boy unlike the tall one. Maybe the young man is more of interest here.

I found this by coincidence. There are also at least 3 boys and one girl in bib overalls at earlier clips (soon on my other blog, rating ~3).

Rating 2-3 only.

Rating: ***
Comment: Most notable Stefanie Powers in tight, dark blue shorts with 3 white stripes (but not Adidas), also some young men later shirtless in different shorts at the sea and at a pool including short black shorts, red, white and longer white shorts. Most scenes of the men are very brief and/or in the background. Both pics from s3e10 (1984). A better pic on IMDb.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Stefanie Powers) rating 3 as well.

Maybe more scenes and other actors in other episodes? I didn’t like much this series and don’t have the time to check all episodes.

For now, rating 3 only.

Comment: Adriana Pantaleo in light red (or orange) swim shorts, also a man in medium blue or grey ones. Brief scenes in yesterday’s final episode 14 (s2e6a).

Next to the earlier Soccer scenes, finally another good one. (I might miss some scenes in earlier episodes as I missed some).

Nice pool scenes and leg exercises at 15 minutes. Also 2 handsome, blonde boys (at 11 minutes in the hospital but not in shorts).

Main entry, previously rating 3

Rating:  2/10 ?
Rating: **
Comment: Some older teen boys/young men (at least one is ~17 yo) playing Soccer in white shorts. Not sure about the time setting here and if shorts are shiny. There are (probably most) time travel and flashback scenes set in the 1960s. I haven’t seen the complete movie, yet.

I assume few scenes, and older actors, so rating 2-3 for now only.

Comment: Some students (older teen boys/men) running in light blue and white shorts. Starring Jim Carrey ~22 yo.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, brief flashback scene, rating 2).

I like light blue and white shorts, but the boys are quite old. I think also rather few scenes.

So rating 2-3 only.
