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)

Comment: 11 yo Joerie B. and probably some others in his Soccer team in shiny white shorts.

I found this single snapshot and can’t say much about it. This series is about the career aspirations of 4 kids including this boy following them for one year. (Others wants to be actress, singer and violinist). Aired in the great Sunday morning show “Villa Achterwerk”. Nov-Dec 1994.

Maybe shirtless scenes or else. At least one handsome boy.

Rating 6-7 for now. I hope to find my clip.

Comment: Two boys in dark blue and yellow swim shorts in s2e10 and Soccer boys and girls in black, white and blue shorts s2e4.

Also a boy (Bernard) in light blue shorts sitting on the grass, a girl in red and a boy in green shorts (Soccer) and some in the locker room. Unknown episode. YouTube clip “Titles and special effects”.

After Woof!, I also found this nice series from the same Director.

Funny plot about stopping the time. I assume rather few good scenes. Kids are also quite young. I haven’t checked all episodes.

Rating 6-7 for now. Also on my pigtails blog, rating 4.

Comment: At least Kyle Howard shirtless and wet in dark red board shorts. Also on his bed in underwear (white/colorful boxer shorts).

Unfortunately these swim shorts are not shiny, but I like this actor and scene when he’s coming out of the water. Great and funny movie. I have to watch it again to check out for maybe more scenes and other actors. But I don’t remember more.

Also on my bedroom blog, rating 6.

For these shorts, rating 6-7.

Comment: At least Michael Pearlman in dark blue shorts (button on the rear pocket), pic from s1e2 and also a lady in medium blue shorts in s1e10. Maybe more in later episodes? Also shirtless scenes but none known in shorts.

A suggestion for my bib overalls blog (also Michael Pearlman and a teen girl, coming very soon, rating ~5).

Not bad. I assume very few scenes. Needs to be rechecked.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Update:  found an old, fat lady in oversized yellow shiny shorts in s3e23. Many episodes are missing (or blocked in my country) on YouTube. But I don’t assume much more scenes. Also the young lady in the blue shorts sitting in s1e7.

Comment: Robert Rusler, around 19 yo shirtless in dark green, I think shiny shorts (as nightwear), also earlier at least 2 young men in red shorts, one with grey sweat pants underneath, one in black shorts, some others in white shorts and a lady in light grey shorts (maybe most are not shiny). There’s also an outdoor pool scene at night, but again most or all shorts aren’t shiny.

Great movie (series). As a young adult, I liked the scene with the green shorts (and Freddy’s claw through the body and door) and the shower scene, but nowadays I prefer younger actors.

So rating 5-6 only. I have to recheck also the other parts.


Update: All Inclusive – Mit Kind und Koffer zur neuen Liebe


The later episodes aren’t as good as episode 3. Some good, but very brief scenes in yesterday’s final episode 6 including light blue, neon green and yellow shorts. Some more board shorts are shown including dark and medium blue, dark green, yellow and some colorful.

Very interesting is a sitting scene of 13 yo boy Luca in pic 3. Most other boys are younger. Mainly the grown-ups are shown.

A bit touching at the end (some boys crying). I still haven’t checked ep 1+2.

Rating around 6 for this episode.

Main entry, rating 9 at



Update: Party Camp


As announced some time ago, an update of “Party Camp” (1987), as I forgot several scenes. There are many interesting shorts but not all are shiny. And most teen boys or young men are quite old. Many scenes from a distance.

So, pic 1 showing some grown-ups and kids running including boys ~9 yo and up in blue, beige and colorful shorts.

Pic 2 showing young men in shiny light grey and red shorts (and jeans shorts).

Pic 3 showing a young lady in black shorts.

Unpictured (men running): Tight shorts in medium green (probably shiny), white (probably not shiny) and some more.

Main entry, rating 6 including teen boys, sitting, yellow shorts and Adidas shorts at




Historias de fútbol

Country: Chile
Who in shorts: boys ~7-11 ?
Who in shorts 2: men
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: medium- ?
Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: Some boys in different shorts, most notably a chubby boy in shiny, white Adidas shorts with light blue stripes. Other boys in colored shorts, like faded light red or similar, longer light blue, white, black, yellow and some more but most others probably not shiny. Also jeans shorts. And boys shirtless, boys sitting and also men playing Soccer (at least in shiny red, medium blue and dark blue, not Adidas), maybe vintage footage scenes.

I only have checked this briefly.

Rating 5-6 for now. The movie is a compilation of 3 short films. English title: Football Stories.

There are few famous movies from Chile. I only remember Machuca, which I even own on DVD (bedroom blog rating 3). Red shorts and swimwear also there, but I think not shiny as set in 1973.
