Info 91: Webfinds 1980 camp

As announced on my overalls blog, I found some few good photos.

I think at least a boy in light red 70s short sitting. Also other shorts ((teen) boys and young girl) but mainly or only not shiny including jeans shorts.

Sorry, no direct links/embeds anymore due to copyright/backlinks.

Update 2: Schülergeschichten


By coincidence, I found some new uploads with very good Adidas shorts in episode 6.

Including splitted shorts in red and dark blue. Also black Adidas Junior. And also 70s shorts in red and no name shorts in dark blue and medium blue.

Maybe I missed more scenes in other episodes?

Main entry, rating 8, maybe I have to give an even higher rating

Comment: Mainly some skateboarding girls in blue, red, orange, yellow and other shorts including jeans shorts. Not sure about the fabric. Most look synthetic/shiny to me except the yellow ones. But probably not of thin fabric. Also (older) teen boys/young men in shorts at least in the background, mainly sitting (much fewer scenes).

Another rare short film from The Learning Company of America (LCA), I recently found on YouTube. No entry on IMDb. Starring Carabeth Burnside as main character Jody (pic 1 on left ?) and Billy Ruff (“Thrashin’ (1986)”, another Skateboard movie). Directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal. Sorry, I’m running out of good shiny shorts movie.

Comment: At least 2 men in red shorts (coach in 70s style) and at least one man and lady in red shorts. Latter ones probably not shiny. Several men shirtless in speedos swimming at an outdoor pool. One interesting pair of turqouise speedos with 2 yellow stripes (at 13 minutes and at the beginning).

Comment: At least one teen girl in shiny, dark blue Adidas shorts (Handball or Volleyball style, not splitted in the stripes) and one or more teen girls in dark blue 70s shorts. One younger looking girl in red shorts (maybe not shiny) and some other shorts like not shiny light blue and pink or maybe white ones.

Quite interesting. I thought these kind of shorts appeared later.

Not bad, but I prefer males.

So rating 4. Main Afterschool overview

Comment: At least one boy and maybe more kids including girls in red and probably other shiny shorts. Pic from a 1984, obviously Brazilian music clip (theme songs Anjo Bom and A Familia).

The soap is originally Mexican and ran from 1982-1983. I found this by coincidence, also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~7.

There’s also a peeing scene of a young boy at home watched by a lady in this clip. Taken from episode 5. Also sitting.

Needs to be rechecked. For shorts inside the series.

Young kids. Rating ~3 for now only.

Comment: There are 2 brief swimming scenes, but almost all boys wearing speedos (or less). One boy in longer black swim or board shorts. Also one older teen boy in red swim shorts but very briefly and from a distance. Maybe I missed some?

Nice scene of stealing one boy’s speedos (who has to walk without them).

Also earlier on my bedroom blog (rating 5) and my overalls blog, rating 4.

For the brief scene rating 3 only. Movie a bit higher, but there are better movies.

Comment: At least Luis Vorbach in red shorts. Probably only a very brief scene in the middle of the movie. Interesting movie. Still running.

Also soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~6.

Update: It (2017)


I have almost checked the complete movie (but at high speed, so it’s possible that I miss some scenes, especially supporting actors, I think I’ve seen dark blue shorts at school, but maybe not shiny), mainly for my bib overalls blog (update there coming next, also with more girls). Also great bedrooms scenes, soon on my other blog.

The only notable and great shiny shorts are the dark red ones. I haven’t noticed (good) cycling nor sitting scenes in them. And the yellow shorts are unfortunately not shiny.

As mentioned before, good tighty whitey scenes of all main characters.

I don’t like the characters. I prefer the 1990 movie.

Main entry, still rating 6
