Comment: Searching for the handsome boys, assumed in blue Adidas shorts, rating 7-8 (I only found some headshots but will continue my search), I found this interesting episode which is (partly) about swimming. Also boys in speedos, lying on their backs, legs angled. Afterwards and I think before, the Bavarian main character Josef wearing shiny, white Adidas shorts with dark blue stripes and I think inner briefs for leisure wear on his farm. Also sitting on the tractor and just answering with yes and no.

I think there was also another boy (brother or friend) but I don’t remember his clothes.

At least one other update coming soon. Snapshot was capture in 2004 (I haven’t found the original clip), so the recording and airing can be at anytime between 1998 and 2003, probably in the first half of that, so still in the late 90s.

Comment: I’m not 100% sure, if this pic from an older VHS recording belongs to this series, but probably. A Bavarian magazine about Bavarian PE. This pic showing Handball playing boys, around 8-10 yo. One team in red Adidas, the boy pictured wears an oversized and modern pair (Basketball style ?), I think others in other red, also non-Adidas shorts. The other team in older, 80s style black Adidas shorts (orange stripes ?), I think shiny as well. Note that the cords hanging outside. Also a nice mullet haircut.

I also have some few and short parts of 1 or 2 other episodes with older teens (track), but I make separate posts of that. I rarely watched this monthly series. Maybe I even missed even better scenes. I remember that there were only brief clips, few minutes long.

Rating 7-8.

Comment: Some boys and maybe teen boys and men in swim shorts, speedos and other swimwear. Most notably a boy in tight green/colorful swim shorts sitting and has to adjust his legs of the swim shorts when standing up. Also a boy in light red swim shorts. Unfortunately, I don’t know the complete film. But this is probably the best scenes.

Rating 8 for now.

Comment: Some boys shirtless in swim shorts. Including Matthew Labyorteaux in blue shorts (pic 2), one black boy in green shorts, 2 or 3 in red shorts and/or trunks (not shiny, maybe the youngest boy in pic 2) and especially one in yellow shorts. Shorts look wet but their hairs are dry.

By coincidence I found this, checking IMDb for 80s series (like Whiz Kids).

There’s also a sequel but I haven’t found shorts in that. Novel by Mary Mac Cracken.

Interesting scene. I like yellow.

Rating 7-8.

Comment: Some young boys, mainly in blue shiny shorts (not Adidas), at least one boy in I think black Adidas shorts at the beginning, 4 min. (maybe not shiny and with inner briefs, brief and dark scene), set obviously in the 70s. At least one older girl in beige, white or similar shorts at 13 minutes. Later also men and women. Men in Adidas track shorts, also cycling.

Another interesting scene near the beginning, where 2 boys dropping down their (long) pants in front of a girl. Looks like if one boy wearing dark blue shiny shorts underneath, but mainly their legs are shown. Pic 1 at 13 minutes, pic 2 at 23.

Yesterday, I continued searching all US movies on IMDb, this time 1986-1987. Many movies I already knew. As usual, the bottom ~100 movies don’t have cover pics. Movies later than 1987 maybe are not worth checking.

Rather few and brief scenes of younger actors.

So rating 7-8 only. Also soon on my bedroom blog, rating 8.

Comment: Several boys (and younger teens) and also some girls in different shiny shorts including Adidas and others in swim shorts and speedos, some shirtless.

One boy in black Adidas (with inner briefs), a fat boy sitting in blue Adidas (with inner briefs), a boy in white Adidas (blue stripes, no inner briefs), another boy or girl in white Adidas with red stripes (no inner briefs).

Other shiny shorts include black, dark blue, light blue, red and white. Swimshorts or board shorts also in white/colorful. Also muddy scenes. But I think few or no wet scenes except speedos.

Interesting movie with many shorts scenes, but I prefer US movies.

There’s also a 1988 sequel but obviously less of interest.

Rating 7-8. English title: A Summer in a Sea Shell. Correct title: Poletje v školjki.

Baywatch (1989)

Family series. David Hasselhoff 242 ep
Year: 1989-2001
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in shorts: Hobie ~12
Who in shorts 2: other teen boys, men
Available on DVD: yes

Rating:  8/10 ?
Rating: ********
Comment: First, Hobie, played by Brandon Call (season 1) and later by Jeremy Jackson in at least dark blue shorts. Also other boys, teen boys and men in mainly dark blue and light red shorts, also shirtless. Several other supporting actors in shorts in other colors but often in the background. And the shorts are modern and not that shiny. Also some in speedos, board shorts and surf suits.

Finally, I have found some of my recordings. Pic 1 showing Brandon Call in an unknown episode of season 1 (1989 or 1990). Pic 2 is from s4e3 (1994). There are also light blue, light green and yellow shorts (shirtless). Girls and women mainly or only in bikinis.

I don’t remember all episodes but this is a great series. Best probably seasons 1-4 only when Hobie is still young, but needs to be checked for supporting actors. I hope for a soon rebroadcasting.

Rating 8 for now. I assume rather few perfect scenes. Few episodes of Brandon Call and I don’t like much Jeremy Jackson with dark and curly hair.

Also on my bib overalls blog (including Trevor Morgan in season 7, rating 4) and my bedroom blog, rating 4 (Jackson in season 6).

Comment: Several, mainly younger boys around 10-12 yo boys in shiny shorts including Adidas. Shirtless and sitting scenes. Some few wet scenes. Also some men and at least one woman in shiny shorts.

At least 2 or 3 boys in blue Adidas, one with rare, thick white boarders around the stripes (pics 1+2), one boy in blue (close up views including rear) some boys in red Adidas including one of the main characters who first appeared (pic below, with inner briefs). One boy and one man in black Adidas (man also wet), one man in green Adidas. Other colors (non-Adidas) of boys include white, light grey, light blue, green and yellow. At least 3 boys running in wet shorts (2x red, at least one is not Adidas) and one in blue. Woman in tight dar blue shiny shorts, splitted at the sides. Some boys and men in speedos and other swim shorts.

Very interesting movie and coming-of-age plot. According IMDb the movie should be 90 minutes. I only found videos and DVD of 83 minutes. Is there maybe an uncut version? The movie poster also showing 2 boys and the woman. I only have seen 2 scenes with probably the same boy (pic 3). Then it’s even possible that this is my unknown Italian assumed movie. But it’s unlikely. I don’t remember shiny shorts there. Some boys wearing this kind of undershirts. Maybe IMDb is again wrong.

Rating 8-9. Many scenes, great shorts. English title: Promiscuity, the Brats of Katia.

Comment: Some Swiss Soccer boys in white shiny shorts (sitting) shirtless in the locker room. Probably have played Soccer before (maybe some with compression shorts underneath ?) . The plot is about a 14 yo boy from Somalia. Luckily I was able to find the title of this documentary. I just remembered Somalia and Switzerland.

It’s even awarded and available on DVD (30 minutes for this and 6 more docus, DVD title “Kinder dieser Welt erzählen – Im Fokus: Kinderrechte”). Maybe more scenes in other episodes as well? But probably not on this DVD, mainly girls and developing countries there).

Language is mainly Swiss-German, German and French.

The boy on the left has darker hair and wearing just a towel and is smiling. The boy on the right and the white shiny shorts has short, spiked blonde hair and not smiling. Both around 10 or 11 yo and shirtless. They talk about that the boy from Somalia never take showers.

Usually I don’t post pics of unknown shirtless boys and reality TV (for several reasons), so I decided to at least show the rest for identification. I don’t have the complete episode and assume very few good scenes, as Soccer is just a minor part of it.

Although brief scenes, rating 7-8 for now. I even have a better, yet unknown documentary with boys in partly oversized white shiny shorts (coming soon). I still try to find out the title.

Update: Confirmed Soccer. Light green shirts. Other team in dark blue shorts and medium blue shirts.

Comment: Soccer boys (orphans) in mainly dark blue and red shorts (Puma ?), pic 4 near the end. Also individual boys in other colors, a blonde boy in pink shorts, one or more in medium blue, one in white, one older black boy in light yellow or similar shorts, one in maybe darkend white (Adidas) probably medium blue stripes, probably black shorts (pic 1), and maybe some more.

Also shirtless scenes and sitting in a dorm (soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~7).

Another interesting movie, I found on IMDb. This time available on DVD (also as a double feature) and Laserdisc, but not sure about the image quality. Movie is now PD.

Rating 8 for now. Boys in pink shorts are quite rare.
