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.

Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
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

Romance, comedy film. Kirstie Alley
Year: 1987
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in shorts: girl ~7 ?
Who in shorts 2: men, woman, boys ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
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)



The Dirt Bike Kid

Comment: Some few boys, girls, women and men in shiny shorts. Most notably a boy in light grey (Adidas ?) shorts with red white stripes (pic 2 on the right in the red shirt, very brief scene at 1h15). Another boy in dark blue shorts. One older teen boy or young man at ~6 minutes in tight, dark red shorts with a yellow stripe but probably not shiny.

Some young cheerleaders, one in shiny red shorts (pic 1 at 1h09), and one older teen girl or young lady in light purple shiny shorts (at 6 minutes). Maybe some more supporting actors (mainly at the beginning and end).

Yesterday, I found some more interesting 80s movies, even one better one. But this one first, as there’s currently a HD stream in very good quality. Some handsome boys and some good Baseball scenes. I don’t like much Peter Billingsley.

Rating 5-6 for shiny shorts. Movie rating 7-8.

Comment: Some boys and girls in track shorts, including Adidas in different episodes.

First I found some (teen) girls in blue shorts in s1e5, shorts probably not shiny (pic on my pigtails blog, rating 8).

Pic 1 showing some boys in dark blue Adidas shorts but obviously not shiny in s6e1. Also boys and teen boys / young men in green shorts including at least one in shiny green Adidas shorts (from a distance), other boys in red and black shorts, black maybe a bit shiny.

Pic 2 showing boys in red shorts in s3e9. Pic 3 showing boys walking and cycling in blue, black, red, purple or brown and maybe other colors in s4e6. At least one blue is Adidas, probably shiny. But unfortunatley most shorts are maybe not shiny.

I haven’t checked all episodes, yet. I hope for more scenes (swim shorts ?) Officially on DVD only seasons 1-2.

Also (soon) on all my other blogs (except sailor suits), rating mostly 8-9.

Rating 6-7 for now. For more infos, see my other blogs.

Update: A black woman in dark red, short Basketball shorts in s2e16.

Year in film: 1990s
Country: The Netherlands
Who in shorts: boys ~11-15

Available on DVD: no

Clothing occurence: often
Rating:  10/10
Rating: **********
Comment: 24 boys and teen boys and also some (few ?) girls in different shiny shorts including purple and medium blue. Many wet scenes, also sitting. Perfect rear views. I think few or no shirtless scenes.

I don’t remember all seasons and episodes. There should be around 8 episodes each season in at least 3 different countries with many hard competitions. Youngest boy (Remco ?) around 10 or 11 (younger looking), most around 13-15.

I think, I only have seen parts of 2 seasons. The best of course the purple shorts, I think in 1991 in Curacao. 8 episodes there. White inner briefs underneath, but not cotton but thin plastic nettings. Handsome blonde boys and many soaked wet scenes and other good scenes in different positions.

One season later, they wore medium blue shiny shorts (Belgium ?). Not far as good as the purple ones, maybe rating 6-7. At the final at a pool party (Tunisia ?), I remember an older teen boy wearing compression shorts underneath. I think no compression shorts under the purple shorts. Maybe some under the blue ones?

There should also been a 1997 show with boys 15-18 set in NL, but I haven’t seen that one. Maybe that in a studio?

I can’t say much more about this rare series. But I give rating 10 for the purple shorts. (Series Dallas still on TOP 1). No entry on IMDb. Some infos on Beeld en Geluid (no pics). I hope for a rebroadcasting or even DVD release.

Comment: At least Christopher Norton in purple boxing shorts and white tights underneath. Ben Oxenbould shirtless in dark yellow boxing shorts but these are probably not shiny.

Very good movie with some other good scenes like skinny dipping. Good plot and handsome actors.

For now my earliest setting. Probably only boxers wore real shiny shorts before the 1970s.

I like purple, but not this curly boy. And obviously very few shiny shorts scenes.

Rating 5 for the shiny shorts. Movie is much better ~ rating 9. But I don’t remember it completely.

Also on my sailor suit blog (him) rating 5.
