Update: Baywatch (1989)


I have briefly checked most episodes of season 1. 2 more and better pics, both from s1e3. Brandon Call and other boys in dark blue, shiny shorts. The rear view of Brandond Call looks somehow a bit strange. Maybe he’s a bit too thin.

Lots of supporting actors especially on the beach but mainly very brief scenes and from a distance.

Most men in red shorts. I have to check the later seasons (Jeremy Jackson and for supporting actors and girls/women).

Comment: Some, mainly younger boys at PE in different shiny shorts including Adidas Junior (red and white with red stripes), some in 70s style shorts (white, medium blue) some others in black shorts. Main character, 8 yo Ivan played by Alex Svanbjerg in light red shorts (unpictured). Some few have matching shirts.

Many boys have shorts from a brand, I don’t know with vertical “V”s at the side like the blue ones in pic 2, the older boy with the black ones and the trainer.

Does anybody know this brand?

Update: I think this brand is Hummel.

Interesting different shorts. I don’t know the complete movie, yet, but I assume rather few good scenes. Shirtless scenes but maybe not in combination with shiny shorts. Also sitting (Ivan) but rather bad scene.

Rating 8 for now. Aka Gummitarzan.

Comment: I think Anthony Ursin, around 11 or 12 yo, shirtless in shiny green shorts with white stripes. Also cycling (shirtless as well). Inside and outside at a beach. Also in the sea, but I think not coming out of it. So no tag wet.

Very interesting.

Rating 7-8.

Update 3: Kidsongs


Some more pics/scenes of Kidsongs.

I already had the white, shiny Soccer shorts (goalkeeper boy in red) but this showing another scene. Also boys and girls in black shorts in the same song. New YouTube clip called Kidsongs TV Show – Let’s Learn Yo Yo Tricks – Dancing Kids – Fun For Kids.

Pic 3 from TV Show We Love Kids Sports ! – Take Me Out To the Ballgame – Basketball Kids. Next to one of the girls in light blue shiny shorts (I already had) also yellow and black, dark blue and grey. Maybe not all shiny.

In pic 4 there’s again light blue but also a girl in purple shorts on the left (same ep.). Also track&field, black boys in white shorts (maybe not shiny).

Also an update of Kidsongs TV Show on my overalls blog f,m rating 7.

Main entry here, rating 8 f,m



Update: Schülergeschichten


By coincidence, I stumbled again upon this nice series and found an even better scene.

Very good Adidas shorts. At least red, blue and black. Probably not all are shiny. But definitely the red one on the right. Also not only Adidas Junior but splitted Adidas with inner briefs but also mainly tight.

Previously rating 6-7 only now around 7-8. Probably one of the best vintage Adidas series.

Comment: Some boys and girl in shiny shorts in song Trim, trim, trim (pictured). Also a bit later boys and girls in white shorts with yellow boarders (maybe not shiny) in song Lui zijn.

2 in white shorts with green boarders (also a boy sitting on a rowing device and floor).

One boy in black shiny shorts with orange stripes, one boy in medium blue shorts, yellow stripes and one boy in red shorts (white boarders). Rating at least 7-8.

Also at least boy and girls in white and black shorts in episode 6 (coming soon, also shirtless scenes in speedos). I don’t know/don’t remember all episodes.

Perfect show and songs. Also several entries on my bib overalls blog (f,m rating 8).

Update: Not sure about the brands. I think there are 2 different brands. At least one might be Italian Lotto. One more pic (close-up) at. At least the white and black are Rucanor shorts. Thanks to Erik. Shirtless boys in swim shorts in ep. 10 (rating 6).

Comment: Some boys at school (PE, 6th grade) mostly in tight Adidas Junior shorts, I think mainly shiny obviously playing Basketball. Most or only colors are blue, black and red. One in 70s style red shorts. Half of them shirtless, also a locker room scene. Pics from ep. 2.

Very interesting documentary, 3 episodes including this are on YouTube. Probably rather few scenes. Probably perfect to those who prefer Adidas Junior shorts.

Personally, I prefer the larger shorts with inner briefs and US movies.

So rating 6-7 only. Another problem is the image quality. But nice time document.

Update: I found an even better scene. Also splitted Adidas shorts with inner briefs (but tight as well). Now rating (7)-8.

Comment: Dirk Saur in shiny, dark blue Adidas shorts with red stripes and inner briefs, also sitting. Also close-ups of the shorts. I don’t know/don’t remember all episodes. Did he also wear red shorts? When he enters the stage, someone making a photo with a flashlight. I think ep 17.

Great series. Handsome, cheeky actor.

Rating 8.

Update 2: Kidsongs


Last night, I remembered The Cedarmont Kids and especially the song “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” (overalls blog, rating 8), and so, I’ve checked if there are other clips. And I found a version from Kidsongs. And later some more clips of them. Updates on my other blog also coming soon.

Pictured is the song “Footloose” (1987). I have checked almost all Kidsongs vid, and I wonder, how I could miss this and others.

At least a girl and boy in light blue shiny Adidas shorts. Also Basketball playing boys and girls in green and yellow shorts. Very good, although some kids are very young.
