Comment: Some, mainly younger boys in shorts, most notable these 2 boys in dark blue and dark green shorts. Maybe not shiny as set in the 1960s. Few scenes at 17 minutes. One older boy or young man in black shorts and a teen girl in dark blue shorts.

So rating 3-4 only. Also soon on my bedroom blog.

Update: Diff’rent Strokes

diffrentstrokes-s1e22diffrentstrokes-s1e22b

While updating my bib overalls blog, I found 2 more episodes with shorts.

Some teen girls in s1e22. Most shorts might not be shiny including light red, yellow, pink and medium blue. At least 2 girls in dark blue or similar shorts which are probably shiny, also sitting. And one younger girl in tight shortalls.

In s7e22 there’s a shirtless, black teen boy/young man in tight, medium blue shorts.

I don’t like any of those. The girls are quite interesting. Rating ~3-4.

Main entry, rating 3 (older teen boys)

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: Mainly or only some older teen girls/young ladies in dark blue shorts. Obviously playing Volleyball and or PE. I think rather few good scenes. Not sure about teen boys.

Although I own this season on DVD, I rarely watch it and can’t remember this scenes. So needs to be rechecked. Currently, season 5 is being aired.

Some much better shorts and swim shorts scenes in other episodes like at camp. Great 80s series but rather few episodes with shiny shorts.

Main entry, rating up to 7 at

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: 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.

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: Some older teen boys playing Baseball in different shorts, most notably this dark blue ones. Also darker blue or black but not sure if shiny. Maybe some more supporting actors in the background? Also a boy in shortalls (bib overalls blog, rating 5, also women).

Also a very good, complete undressing scene of Jeremy Lelliott at the beginning dancing under water being splashed from a hose (flashback scene, probably set in the 1980s). White underwear (tighty whities ?) but also without. Shirtless and wet scenes but not in combination with shiny shorts, so no tagging.

Interesting movie, the plot is about an autistic and blind boy. Not sure about the time setting at the end. Either 80s but could be the 90s. Shorts are quite long and modern.

For the shorts, rating ~3 only. Movie itself much higher.
