Comment: Some teen boys in different shorts, but probably most shorts aren’t shiny. Maybe the red and yellow ones. Also the red shorts of a man look shiny. Pics from s1e9 The Race. Other colors include dark blue, black, medium green, light blue and light pink (Pugwall, but not shiny). Pic 1 on left showing the drummer Orfo sitting in red shorts; my favourite band member.

Also young men shirtless in board shorts also a boy in season 2 but very brief scenes and from a distance. I don’t know all episodes (especially season 1 needs to be rechecked) but obviously few or no scenes in other episodes.

Interesting series, I used to watch back then. Also a girl and older teen boy in bib overalls, other blog, rating 5. For shorts, rating ~3-4 only.



Sítio do Pica-Pau Amarelo


Different fantasy family film, series, 1920 novels by Monteiro Lobata
1977, 1980s, 2001-2007

Clothing occurence:

4/10 ?
Comment: Some boys (and maybe girls and men?) in at least medium blue and red 70s shorts (but maybe not shiny). Red shorts also sitting, but side view. Also Daniel Lobo probably in shiny white shorts and sleeveless white/red shirt in 1986 (I currently can’t access this YouTube vid mdf0YFuqsrk). Pics should be from episode 1 of 1977.

Also boys, girls, men and women in bib overalls or similar on my other blog, rating 8 (soon to be updated). Also nice rooms.

Vids of the 80s are quite rare and most vids have a bad image quality. There are also some (publicity) pics.

So needs to be rechecked.

Update: also shirtless scenes in red shorts in 1985.

Update: Just for Kicks (2003) brand Score


Some new pics of this one. It was difficult to identify some brands, luckily I found a close-up pic. So, the medium blue shorts in the main entry and probably one black pair (pic 4) are from the US brand Score Sports. I think I also have them elsewhere.

As said, the long yellow shorts and the red ones of Dylan (pic 2) are from Adidas. Pic 3 showing Cole in the light blue ones (also sitting but from a distance).

Also interesting the purple shorts, unknown brand, 2 yellow stripes.

Main entry, still rating 6 at


I also identified a logo, which I think had before (maybe in Cebollitas ?). It’s Golddigga.


Just for Kicks (2003)


Family soccer film starring the Sprouse twins
Year in film:
Who in shorts:
Cole, Dylan ~10
Who in shorts 2:
other boys, men
Available on DVD:
I own:
no, partly TV recording ?
Clothing occurence:
6/10 ?
Comment: Cole and Dylan Sprouse and other boys in mainly longer, medium blue shiny Soccer shorts (also sitting), the other team in longer red shorts (also a team in black ones), goalkeeper in black and also yellow ones. Also at least one boy in yellow shorts outside the field. I think Cole in light blue shorts but not sure if shiny, Dylan in black ones, woman in pink (probably not shiny).

How could I forgot this Soccer movie?

Dylan Sprouse (pictured in glasses, Cole without) also in bib overalls (since 2011 on my bib overalls blog, rating 4).

I haven’t seen this movie for a long time and have to recheck it. Also shirtless and cycling and bunk bed scenes.

I don’t like at all Dylan’s glasses and the boys are quite young, but I think I have to give at least rating 6-7. DVD title: Just 4 Kicks.

Update: I have briefly checked it. More scenes than assumed. Cole or Dylan in red Adidas shorts (brief scene) and the longer yellow shorts (other boy) are also Adidas. I think, I can identify 1 or 2 more brands. Also boys briefly in white and purple shorts. More pics soon. Not sure if it’s worth buying. I think rather few good scenes. Boys are young and mostly not that handsome. Update 2: Brand of medium blue and black is Score Sports.

Comment: At least Armie Hammer in white Adidas shorts with red stripes and inner briefs, including sitting scenes. Also mainly shirtless in other shorts and swim shorts like medium red or similar (wet, 1 black stripe), yellow, medium green, but most or all other shorts are not shiny. The younger boy, ~21 yo Timothée Chalamet as 17 yo Elio also in (colorful) shorts but I think none are shiny.

Thanks for this suggestion. But I don’t like (hairy) men in shorts. Nothing special, like for my other blogs like men in overalls or Cowboys or sailors. And this is not a blog just for Adidas.

And this white ones don’t appear shiny. More of interest are the medium red, sometimes pink appearing wet shorts. But I only have seen pics on IMDb of those.

Maybe an interesting movie and gay plot (80s setting), but I don’t like at all these actors.

Rating ~2 for now only.

Update: Diff’rent Strokes


While updating my bib overalls blog, I found 2 more episodes with shorts.

Some teen girls in s1e22. Most shorts might not be shiny including light red, yellow, pink and medium blue. At least 2 girls in dark blue or similar shorts which are probably shiny, also sitting. And one younger girl in tight shortalls.

In s7e22 there’s a shirtless, black teen boy/young man in tight, medium blue shorts.

I don’t like any of those. The girls are quite interesting. Rating ~3-4.

Main entry, rating 3 (older teen boys)

Rating:  6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: Boys, girls (including at least teen girls) and I think men and women in both red and medium blue shiny shorts. Also sitting scenes (bench, lawn and one boy elsewhere). Episode 325 Fußball – Das Wunder von Bärstadt.

Has been aired today, but I missed most of it. So needs to be rechecked more carefully at slow speed. I think several scenes in this episodes, but very few in the complete series.

Rating 6-7. Handsome boys and great sitting scenes, also close-up.


Also of interest: Die Aufnahmeprüfung (2012) has been aired yesterday. Longhaired Sandro Iannotta and an older boy in board shorts and other shorts.

Clothing occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: Alfalfa shirtless in long, red boxer’s shorts and Butch in green ones. Probably not shiny in the 1930s. But the red ones appear sort of shiny.

Colorized version, originally in b&w. 11 minutes.

More movies also on all my other blogs. Like short sailor suits and overalls.

Great series (but not concerning shiny shorts).

So just rating ~3.

Rating: ****
Comment: At least one teen boy in red 70s shorts (pic 1 from ep 1, maybe some others in other shorts), 2 boys in rare orange, light brown or similar shorts (pic 2 from ep 8) and one older teen boy in red, maybe Adidas shorts (pic 3 from ep 1, briefly and partial shown). Unfortunately both YouTube clips have a quite poor image quality. I already have corrected the colors.

Correct title Racheta albă. Novel by Ludovic Roman.

Rather few good scenes.

So rating 3-4 only.

Also an older teen boy in bib overalls (soon on my other blog, rating 3).

Rating:  3/10 *
Rating: ***
Comment: At least Steele Stebbins in colorful board shorts and Skyler Gisondo in red swim shorts. Ed Helms in blue/white, non-shiny shorts.

Should have been aired some days ago, but hasn’t. So I don’t know the complete movie, yet. Pic from a short YouTube clip.

I like the 1983 movie (shorts scenes, beige, pink, jeans, but I think none shiny). Maybe supporting actors?

Rating 3 for now only. (Mainly board shorts).
