Comment: Some few older Soccer boys in shiny white shorts. Also kicking a ball. The other team are Ice Hockey players. I think in longer black shorts.

Some time ago, I found a very brief clip on one of my backups. I can’t even find it right now.

The clip is dated from 1992, but obviously the show was broadcasted in 1996 and I switched the PC date back. (So dates of few other posts might be incorrect as well.)

I haven’t found much on the web. Not on IMDb, Wikipedia and not even on wunschliste.de. Probably a short lived show. Maybe there were other sports kids in other episodes? Or was there just one show?

Rating 5 for now.

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.

Comment: Some boys in shorts as well as some few scenes shirtless in swim shorts in the 1991 episode “Summer Camp” which is about blind kids and counselor.

Has been aired some days ago, but I missed some parts. Not as good as some other episodes (like s2e1, also at summer camp, see main entry, rating up to 7).

Justin Gocke (1978-2014, “Santa Barbara”, also on my overalls blog) as 10 yo Eric in red and other track shorts (pic 2) and a man (Tom Sullivan) in red swim shorts.

Some handsome boys, (another, unknown blonde boy even more of interest than Gocke) but most shorts are not shiny. A very good scene of a tug of war game where the kids falling down.

Another blind boy in yellow and yellow/colorful shorts. Same pair (pic 1) also used for swimming and on he water slide.

Great series, I own seasons 1-3 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: Redhaired Todd Bosley in medium blue and also in black or similar shiny shorts. Both pairs are, I think oversized. But he also has thin legs. His underwear can be partly seen under his black shorts.

Also a girl in yellow shorts, but not shiny.

Another girl in dark blue shortalls, also a woman in overalls (other blog, rating 5).

Great movie. Handsome blonde boy (Kristopher Kachurak), but I think not in shorts.

Rating 5 for the shorts, much more for the movie itself.

Comment: At least this teen boy in blue swim shorts in an indoor pool. I found a brief clip on one of my VHS recordings, some time ago and I don’t remember in which episode. Maybe also some more actors/actresses in other episodes?

Interesting series. As usual many guest stars. I remember few episodes, most notably one starring Eddie Karr (probably not in shiny shorts). I sometimes confound this with “Touched by an Angel (1994)”, another interesting series with a different black lady, which needs to be checked as well.

Rating 4-5 for this episode. Needs to be rechecked.

Vi på Saltkråkan

Rating:  5/10
Rating: *****
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: The final update of this series. This pic also showing (other) Handball playing boys, I think from the same episode like the first entry (rating 7). This young boys wearing white and red shorts. At least in light blue shorts (non shiny ?). I prefer the other black shorts.

I also found the handsome teen boys in blue, but they wore long Adidas pants (and mainly headshots). At least in the studio scene I found. Maybe also earlier in shorts. But I doubt that this is from the same series anyway. Perhaps I can find more scenes, when I have more time. But I don’t remember better scenes.

Rating 5 for the boys here. Main entry, rating 8

Comment: Dylan Smith (sitting in the background) and some few other young boys in longer, orange shiny shorts playing Soccer. Also cycling in these shorts.

I didn’t remember shorts scenes in this movie, so that’s why I haven’t posted it earlier.

Great movie. But I assume few shorts scenes. And the boys are quite young and I prefer shorter shorts.

So rating 5-6 only.

Die Wilden Kerle 2

Comment: Some boys and I think one girl mainly in longer, black shorts. Also the home team playing Soccer in underwear. The other team partly in shorter and tigher, I think blue Adidas shiny shorts.

I have seen all or almost all the movies and own 1+2 on DVD, but surprisingly there are few shiny shorts scenes as they often play in their street clothes.

This 2nd movie is definitely the best of them all.  Many DVD extras and some very good scenes like very handsome blonde actors (Marlon Wessel), loosing even his underwear while playing Soccer (unfortunately not shown), a girl peeing like a boy, and bare butts at the end.

Movie rating ~7. For shiny shorts, rating 4-5 only. I have to recheck the later movies (but I don’t like them) the actors also grew much older. English title: The Wild Soccer Bunch. Novels by Joachim Masannek.

Again mistakes on IMDb Wilson Gonzales Ochsenknecht missing his surname.
