Comment: One teen boy, I think Mikkel Bratt Silset (pic 1) sitting in colorful, long board shorts. Also some other boys at an indoor pool including one in oversized medium blue swim or board shorts. Another one in black. I think few and brief scenes near the beginning only and most from a distance.

So rating 4-5 only. Directed by Erik Richter Srand. English title: Sons.

Interesting plot, but there are much better movies. Movie rating also ~4 only.

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.

Update: Il ritorno del piccolo Lord

ilritornodelpiccololord

I previously don’t had any pics, as I only remember few and brief scenes, mainly in and underwater. Luckily, I now found this pic on an old hard drive, dark blue or black with yellow swim shorts. I don’t remember good scenes of the other (red) shorts.

Not that bad, but very few and brief scenes at the beginning only. Very poor, modern movie remake of Little Lord Fauntleroy. (Rating 1-2).

Main entry, still rating 3-(4) at

Comment: Some boys swimming. One boy shirtless in pink swim shorts, one in yellow, one in white or similar and some in black shorts. Maybe not all are shiny. Also skinny dipping scenes.

Also boys and a girl in sailor suits (other blog, rating 5). Not sure about the time setting due to the sailor suits. Should be after a war and childhood memories of the author. Maybe showing the 1940s and 1980s or the shorts are anachronistic.

English title: Holiday in Expectation of a Holiday, Russian title: Праздник ожидания праздника, 1984 novel by Fazil Iskander (1929-2016).

Some very interesting scenes, but rather few (good) shorts scenes.

Rating 4-5 for shorts, movie rating maybe 6-7.

Comment: 11 yo Joerie B. and probably some others in his Soccer team in shiny white shorts.

I found this single snapshot and can’t say much about it. This series is about the career aspirations of 4 kids including this boy following them for one year. (Others wants to be actress, singer and violinist). Aired in the great Sunday morning show “Villa Achterwerk”. Nov-Dec 1994.

Maybe shirtless scenes or else. At least one handsome boy.

Rating 6-7 for now. I hope to find my clip.

Comment: At least boys in at least yellow and red shiny shorts. Not sure about girls. maybe wearing just skirts?

As announced on my bib overalls blog (rating 5, boys+girls), I found this by coincidence and don’t know all episodes. Maybe there are even better scenes?

Originally an 1988 US show but even longer broadcasted in the UK/Scotland as pictured in s1e2.

Rating 7 for now.

Comment: Björn Söderbäck and Urban Strand shirtless in 1960s swim shorts. Several good scenes including sitting. Shorts are not shiny. The blue ones appear quite shiny when wet, I think this is Niklas which blonde hair is a bit darker.

This scenes are the best of this series. I don’t like at all the very annoying little girl(s) (rating 1 on my bib overalls blog).

As these shorts aren’t really shiny, I give rating 4-5 for these 1960s shorts. QUite handsome boys, but I prefer the 80s and the US.

I have to recheck this movie/series for other (dry) 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.

Comment: Some young boys and I think also girls in different shorts, probably some are shiny like black and blue. Obiously also some boys shirtless, but in the background. And Thomas Aldwinckle (pic 2 from s1e3) and maybe others in shorts but I think not shiny (maybe shorts for PE). Often school shorts are not shiny in the UK (and Australia).

Pics 1+3 are from a movie-length clip on YouTube, probably a DVD compilation of season 1. Definitley before season 6 as there are other actors.

Great series. I don’t remember all episodes. Maybe some more good episodes/scenes. Unfortunately still not on DVD. I have to check more clips on YouTube.

For now rating 4-5 for shorts only. There’s a girl and I also found a boy in bib overalls, update soon on my other blog. Also on my bedroom blog, rating 7.
