Update: Unknown 11 – Australian movie or series

unknown11cunknown11d

I found these 2 pics, which are obviously from the same series (or movie). Also titled Australian 1990. Note, the same garden door. I still haven’t found any clips.

Maybe this was just aired in 1990 in Germany. Looks more like an early 1980s series according to the old cars. Also rare, the boy has crossed chains on his chest.

Somehow the blonde boy looks familiar. It must be much easier now, to find this one.

Comment: Some boys in Basketball shorts (pic from song: Ezekiel Saw the Wheel) also a cheerleading girl in light grey shorts and a toddler boy and older girl sitting in shiny dark blue shorts. Probably some more.

Pic 2 showing a shirtless boy sitting in wet, light green / turqouise swim shorts in “Who Did (Swallow Jonah)?” from DVD Silly Songs (1995). But few and brief scenes. Also a boy sitting in purple short, but I think not shiny.

Also many boys and girls in bib overalls and shortalls, partly raw denim (other blog, rating 8), especially in DVD Songs of America.

I don’t know all clips. Rating 4-5 for now only. I assume rather few shiny shorts scenes.

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.
