Comment: At least two great scenes. Best at 1h00 (pics 1+3) At least one boy in dark blue, shiny Adidas shorts with yellow stripes and bottom border. Some more boys, including older teen boys but mainly not shiny or from a distance.

Another scene at 40 minutes. Mainly shown some older teen boys/young men. Light red shorts, tight, light green shorts, dark blue 70s style, medium blue, white (not shiny) and some more. Also some young boys here but briefly and from a distance (including light blue shorts.

By rechecking my older entries on my bib overalls blog, I came across this nice 80s movie. Also nice bedroom scenes, soon on my other blog, like an update on my overalls blog.

Rating 6-7. Needs to be rechecked later more carefully at slow speed.

Comment: At least this boy, I think it’s B. Bradenton Harper in dark blue, longer shorts with white borders. Also shirtless like shown on the DVD cover. Shorts appear shorter in the water. Different pair?

I haven’t seeen the complete movie, yet. But looks very interesting.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Comment: Some boys in a locker room and probably playing Soccer (or Handball) before (I think PE). One in dark blue Adidas (Junior ?) one in medium blue shiny shorts, another one in black ones (maybe not shiny). One boy pulling down the shorts of one boy revealing that he wore at least 3 pairs of underwear (light grey retro shorts+2 mini briefs above). I don’t remember why.

Searching for something else (Alles Paletti (1985), coming soon), I found these 3 pics.

Currently, I can’t say much more. Digitized or recorded/aired in 2007 on sat1. Maybe earlier production. But I think not 80s as most boys wore longer, modern, colorful cotton shorts/bermudas including purple. One boy wearing a Nike Air shirt which can’t be in the early 80s. Can anybody help or identify the female (teacher)?

Could be a divorce drama. If it’s a series with a teacher, it might be found easily. But I fear it’s a TV movie. I captured the pics only almost 1 year ago, and obviously didn’t knew the title then and forgot to post them. I think captured from a brief clip from one of my DVDr or backup discs. I currently don’t have the time to check once more all of my discs or tapes.

A very similar scene is in Achterbahn (ep 33) (but that wasn’t aired on sat1).

I also uploaded a (descent) pic of Dallas.

Comment: Boys and girls in longer, dark blue and dark red shiny shorts including main character Marny Kennedy as Taylor in s1e8. At least the blue shorts are from brand Admiral. Another episode is s1e10 (The Cross Country) in medium blue and black shorts, but I think not shiny.

Another great and funny Australian series. Although I don’t like Hector, but Taylor is nice. Also soon on my pigtails log, rating 7.

I haven’t checked all episodes. Maybe swim shorts as well?

For now rating 6-7.

Comment: At least 3 boys at an outdoor pool, shirtless and wet in red, white and dark blue shiny shorts in song Vakantie in Italië. But rather very brief good scenes.

Also PE scenes, boys and girls in light blue and a boy in colorful shorts in “Bang voor de bal” but not shiny. Also Soccer scenes in song “Honden” but longer shorts and not shiny as well.

Also very good bib overalls scenes with farm plot (rating 7).

Some perfect songs, and handsome boys.

For the brief swim shorts scenes rating 6 only.

Update: OP NAAR DE TOP?! (Villa Achterwerk 1994)

opnaardetop4opnaardetop2

I made 2 better pic of this series. Even much better than assumed. At least the main character wore white compression tights under the white shorts. The other team in red shorts.

Unfortunately I only have a very brief clip in very bad image quality.

Comment: Some boys and girls in white and black shiny shorts in 1985 song “Beter dan de rest”.

One of my favourite Kinderen voor Kinderen songs. I remember watching it then on TV and even later bought the CD. But I prefer the colorful shorts in episode 4.

Main entry, now rating 8

Comment: Dominik and Matthias of band Ketch-up in German Adidas soccer shirts and black shorts. Probably here the song “Eins Zu Null (Hangin’ Tough)”. Also in blue shiny shorts either in this and/or in RTL Kinderhitparade (rating 9). I don’t like the modern black shorts. Maybe more shorts/others?

I found this very brief clip by coincidence on one of my VHS tapes as it was not labeled with this. Around 1 minute only, which is at the end of the show. Not sure if I have more clips on other tapes. Blue shorts probably from a different episode. I only have this 2 scenes. One from a distance showing both boys on the far left, at least showing a bit from the shorts (length of shorts, height of boys). Pic 2 showing a close-up of one of them (maybe Matthias ?) Sorry, no better pics of both (in this show).

Aka “MiniStars” and “Li-La-Launebär präsentiert Die MiniStars”. There’s also a Dutch show/band called De MiniStars and in other countries (with other kids). But I don’t know of shorts in there.

No DVD nor clips known. At least there are CDs. For more infos see RTL Kinderhitparade. Does anybody has better pics or clips especially of the blue shorts?

Update: Der Tag, an dem Anton den Widerlan fand

widerlanwiderlan2g

I finally found my tape. In total around 2-3 minutes (interrupted). Only one PE scene, around 1 minute. First, one boy in shiny, light red shorts and later the sporty, blonde boy (last pic in the middle) in light green shorts, probably the same brand, unknown if shiny. Can anybody identify the brand? Looks like an “LO” or <O. On the sides are white patterns like a row of “><” .

One more pic of a chubby boy sitting in medium blue shorts in the main entry (only shown from a distance). There’s also a girl in pink shorts (probably not shiny) and the chubby boy in large, white shorts (non shiny, pic 4 on the left). Anton is on the right. He usually wore belted, light blue, purple checkered cotton shorts/knickers.

The sporty boy is later shown at home sitting on an exercise bike but in long, light grey cotton pants. I haven’t made a vid, just some few pics at higher res.

Update 2: Manni, der Libero

manniderlibero-ep13

The home team including Thomas Ohrner (on left) mainly wore blue Adidas shorts with yellow stripes (and inner briefs), see other entry, but also the regular blue ones with white stripes which look much better to me. I think rather few scenes in ep 13 (pictured) and I think in ep 4 in ironed shorts (but I don’t like that).

Main entry, rating 6 (also 2 more posts including Puma shorts)
