Comment: Several boys in shiny shorts and swim shorts at this cancer camp. I mentioned this before and this is my favourite episode. Some shorts are not shiny.

One boy in green Adidas shorts in the pool also outside jumping into it (but brief scenes).

Double episodes s2e1+2. I think very few shorts scenes in s2e1.

Update: Fun House (1988)

funhouse-1988-ep2funhouse-1988-ep22

Some more scenes of the US Fox’s Fun House. Some interesting actions like piggyback, kneeing and wheelbarrow race. Maybe all pics from 1990.

Pic 1 from YouTube clip called FFH-02 (also with older girls), pic 2 from FFH-22, pic 3 from FFH-08, pic 4 from FFH-19.

Sorry, I’m quite busy and running out of movies.

Update 2: Fun House (1989)

funhouse1989-s2e5funhouse1989-s1e12

Some more pics of the 1989 UK show (although I prefer the 1988 US show and I recently paid more attention to that).

As said, the yellow shorts are lighter than in the US show which don’t appear that shiny.

Girls also wore black skirts (at least in 1997).

Pics 1+3 from s2e5, pic 2 from s1e12.

Also updated on my bib overalls blog.

Comment: Boys and girls almost always in red and dark yellow shorts. Also wet and muddy scenes and few sitting scenes.

Unlike the 1989 UK series, I haven’t found any bib overalls. And the yellow shorts are darker and maybe not or not that shiny.

There were 375 episodes but I only found some very few on YouTube.

Pic 1 from May 11, 1989. Pic 2 from s1e7 (season 1?) with a pool. Pic 3 from s1e6 with Leonardo DiCaprio in yellow and Danny Pintauro in red. Pic 4 showing muddy scenes in s1e22. On the left a girl. Mud is eggs. Good close-up scenes in s2e5.

Rating 7-8 for now.

Update: Fun House (1989)

funhouse-n

Some time ago, Adidasfan made some suggestion, but mainly about women, and I already had Fun House.

In this clip, kids putting on wet Umbro shorts over their shorts they wore.

Very interesting and I didn’t identify the brand earlier. Unfortunately a quite bad image quality, filmed off a screen. Maybe there’s a better clip? Or even better ones?

I now can confirm girls in shorts. I will make more posts later also of the USA show.

YouTube clip called “Funhouse umbro nylon shorts”. Suggestions in the comments of

Update 2: You Can’t Do That on Television

ycdtotv-medicineycdtotv-stephanie2

Some more episodes of this great comedy series. As said, some episodes are currently hard or not to find and most have poor quality.

Pic 1 from ep Medicine (1983) showing a boy, maybe Alasdair in dark blue 70s shorts, also sitting in class (side view). Pic 2 from an unknown episode (YouTube clip called ycdt stephanie 2) obviously redhaired Christian Tessier in red shorts. Also others in shorts but not shiny.

Pic 3 from clip “kid outsmarts teacher” showing a boy sitting probably in green shorts. I haven’t found better scenes of that. Pic 4 probably showing Alasdair in red and Doug in white shorts in ep 57 Courage (1984).

I also found red shorts in ep Drugs (1981) maybe not shiny, dark blue and white shorts in Nature (probably not shiny), white and red shorts in Fitness. Boy in white cycling, others sitting. Alasdair in white shorts in Relatives (are these shiny ?)

Thanks Doug for finding the following

Season 5. Episode 12. (Ambition ?) Ben Schreiner sitting with Lisa, Ben dancing in white shorts.
Season 5. Episode 13 (Clubs ?). Ben in black, standing with Christine & Les, standing golfing, sitting with christine and with all the cast, in white, at the end of the show.
Season 6. Episode 4. (Relatives, 1985 ?) Alasdair Gillis in white sitting with Les on the set and again with Les (playing a doctor) sitting at his desk.

Pics of Ambition and Relatives can be found on the barthsburgery site.

Comment: Some Soccer boys in different shorts including medium blue, dark blue, white, black and one in light green (looks more like a girl). Also girls in shiny shorts including white. I think not all shorts are shiny, but at least the green, medium blue and white ones. Also close-up scenes. Maybe I can identify some brands, later.

By rechecking this movie on my bib overalls blog (boy, rating 6, just updated), I found this scene by coincidence. How could I miss it?

Very interesting, but I haven’t checked the complete movie.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Update: De bal is rond

I found some more scenes of the described yellow and light grey shorts. And yesterday also orange shorts, I didn’t remember and found earlier.

Shirt labeled with “lotto”, not sure about the shorts but probably. Brand or sponsor?

Rating ~7 for this new pics. Also teen girls in shiny shorts, but I have to search for more pics.

Comment: Probably some Soccer boys in shiny shorts. I remember, having heard of this series on Dutch TV in the mid or late 80s. At least aired between 1984-1986.

I think, I don’t have a recording and I couldn’t find any pics nor clips on the web (except modern ones showing his method). Not sure if the pics are from that series (but likely, as there are Dutch texts) and I remember the scenes with Coerver. YouTube title: Cvičení – Coerver (US videos, parts 1-3) showing boys in Puma shorts black, red and white. Also boys in long pants.

Has anybody more infos?

There are at least VHS titled “Soccer fundamentals with Wiel Coerver”.

Rating at least rating 7-8 (for these pics). Puma is quite rare.
