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.

Also updates on my bib overalls blog (females, rating 4). Main entry here, now rating 5 instead of 4


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.

Main entry here, rating 8 f,m

Comment: Several boys and also girls, mainly older teen boys in different shorts, also shirtless and also sitting, maybe not all shorts are shiny.

Shiny might be light red, 70s style, purple (including 1 younger boy ~11 yo), light green (young boy), light blue, and maybe white and black. Some young girls in light grey shorts (maybe not shiny). One girl inside probably in shiny light red shorts.

Comment: One girl, maybe Natasha Phillips, in pink shorts (not sure if the fabric is shiny). The other girl in the light blue shorts might be Maia Mitchell, but her shorts aren’t shiny. Also other (teen) girls in at least dark blue and black shorts and also teen boys in shorts (including shirtless scenes like in ep 11) but I think not or not that shiny (I think mainly or only in colorful board shorts). Also muddy scenes at a beach in ep 4. Wet scenes (boy+girl, longer black shorts) in ep 15.

Pic from ep 15. Also a young blonde, pigtailed girl (Matilda Terbio) in tight shortalls (overalls blog, rating 4) and also purple shorts in ep 11 (similar like the pink ones).

I don’t know all episodes. Wrong cover image and description on IMDb. Prequel series to CastAway (2011) which also needs to be checked.

Rating 3-4 for now only. Also soon on my pigtails blog.

Update: Cebollitas


As announced one more update of Cebollitas and the brands. Currently, I don’t have the time to check more episodes. I don’t assume more brands anyway.

Pic 1 from ep 169 showing Fantasmita in blue shiny shorts with 3 horizontal stripes on the legs. 3 stripes are copyrighted and usually must be Adidas, but I doubt that and haven’t found Adidas text or leaf logos. In other episodes like 222, the boys wear blue shorts with 2 stripes. Gamuza wears white Umbro shorts.

Pic 2 from ep 279 showing boys and girls in both white and dark blue shorts playing Basketball (that’s why there are also girls).

Pic 3 showing a young man in purple shorts with stars in ep 200.

Pic 4 showing the boys in black or similar Olan shorts with many larger diamonds in ep 386.

Comment: Some few teen boys and girls including Zoey in purple track shorts. One teen girl in shorter ones. Unfortunately not Dustin.

Has been aired 2 days ago. Purple is my favourite color (for modern shorts, next to light blue) and dark blue and yellow for 70s style shorts.

Few and brief scenes.

So rating 4-5 only for this episode.

Main entry, currently rating 5 (for season 1), series still running

Comment: Some older teen girls and teen boys mainly in short shorts playing Basketball. Pics from s1e1. Maybe most shorts are not or not that shiny. Not sure about the light green ones. One teen girl in shiny, longer, red Basketball shorts and of course teen boys in longer shiny Basketball shorts. I think also boys (shirtless) in board shorts in other episodes including 11 yo Paul Butcher.

Very good and funny family series. But I watch mainly for Dustin. Series is currently running on Germany’s Nick.

Also on my bedroom blog (bunk bed) rating 4 also showing some pics of Dustin.

For short rating 5 for now only.

Update: Teens in purple shiny track shorts in s1e11

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.


Update: Kidsongs


As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found some more scenes.

At least girls in pink, purple and red shorts (not sure if all are shiny). Girl in red shorts doing rope jumping in song “Skip to my Lou”. Also a boy in red shorts playing Baseball. Another boy in medium blue shorts, but probably not shiny. Maybe some more.

Pics 1+2 are from the song “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” (1985), pic 3 I think from “This Old Man”. Songs are available on different DVDs including A Day at Old MacDonald’s Farm. Recent vid of the official YouTube channel.

I still haven’t rechecked all episodes for shiny shorts and swim shorts (especially the Kidsongs TV Show). Great series with handsome boys (Kyle and others) and good songs.

Rating~6-7 for this scenes.

Main entry, rating 8 (same for the other blog, f/m)
