Comment: Some Soccer boys in longer light blue and red shorts. Goalkeeper (main character) in black. Most or all wearing long black tights underneath. (Tagging as sweat pants). I almost forgot this movie.

I haven’t seen the complete movie, but obviously only this brief scene at the beginning only.

Available on the ARD mediathek.

Some boys are handsome.

Rating 4 only, due to the brief scene.

Comment: Some older teen girls and teen boys mainly in short shorts playing Basketball. Pics from s1e1. Maybe most shorts are not or not that shiny. Not sure about the light green ones. One teen girl in shiny, longer, red Basketball shorts and of course teen boys in longer shiny Basketball shorts. I think also boys (shirtless) in board shorts in other episodes including 11 yo Paul Butcher.

Very good and funny family series. But I watch mainly for Dustin. Series is currently running on Germany’s Nick.

Also on my bedroom blog (bunk bed) rating 4 also showing some pics of Dustin.

For short rating 5 for now only.

Update: Kidsongs


As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found some more scenes.

At least girls in pink, purple and red shorts (not sure if all are shiny). Girl in red shorts doing rope jumping in song “Skip to my Lou”. Also a boy in red shorts playing Baseball. Another boy in medium blue shorts, but probably not shiny. Maybe some more.

Pics 1+2 are from the song “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” (1985), pic 3 I think from “This Old Man”. Songs are available on different DVDs including A Day at Old MacDonald’s Farm. Recent vid of the official YouTube channel.

I still haven’t rechecked all episodes for shiny shorts and swim shorts (especially the Kidsongs TV Show). Great series with handsome boys (Kyle and others) and good songs.

Rating~6-7 for this scenes.

Main entry, rating 8 (same for the other blog, f/m)

Comment: Some boys in shorts as well as some few scenes shirtless in swim shorts in the 1991 episode “Summer Camp” which is about blind kids and counselor.

Has been aired some days ago, but I missed some parts. Not as good as some other episodes (like s2e1, also at summer camp, see main entry, rating up to 7).

Justin Gocke (1978-2014, “Santa Barbara”, also on my overalls blog) as 10 yo Eric in red and other track shorts (pic 2) and a man (Tom Sullivan) in red swim shorts.

Some handsome boys, (another, unknown blonde boy even more of interest than Gocke) but most shorts are not shiny. A very good scene of a tug of war game where the kids falling down.

Another blind boy in yellow and yellow/colorful shorts. Same pair (pic 1) also used for swimming and on he water slide.

Great series, I own seasons 1-3 only.

Comment: Some boys and teen boys in shorts, shiny shorts and speedos including shirtless scenes, also in shiny shorts. A blonde boy in red Adidas shorts (is it Adidas ?), another older boy in medium blue 70s style tight shorts (also shirtless, sitting and cycling). Younger boys in white, light grey and/or light blue shorts. Maybe not all shorts are shiny.

Quite interesting movie but could be better.

Rating 5-6. I think not on DVD.


Update: James at 15


Next to the perfect swim shorts scenes of Lance Kerwin (rating 10, TOP rank #4, see my TOP 10 pic on the right coloumn) and the locker room scenes, I also found some more PE scenes on YouTube (episode Champions). I didn’t knew that they are on YouTube.

Several shorts and also sitting scenes, including light and dark blue, white, red and grey. Probably not all shiny. Lance Kerwin also in medium blue speedos in the pilot.

I still haven’t checked all episodes. Rating ~7 for these shorts.

Also soon on my bedroom and pigtails blog.

Comment: Some boys at PE (6th grade only?) in different shorts in ep 2. Most in light blue shorts with one red stripe at the sides. But also medium blue, dark blue, black and red. Not sure about the fabric. At least the medium blue shorts are shiny (2 teen boys, shorts appearing darker in the shadow). Also good rear view (light blue). Most shorts are tight. The dark shorts are probably of cotton and have one white stripe, almost US style.

Interesting movie and shorts. But in total rather few scenes.

Rating 6-7.

English title: The Adventures of the Electronic, Russian title: Приключения Электроника. Filmed in 1979 (or earlier). So maybe one of the earliest ones in the Soviet Union with shiny shorts.

Comment: Some boys in longer shorts, a least 2 in white and 1 in red, also sitting and also shirtless in a locker room. The other shorts are probably not shiny.

Interesting plot and scenes. No entry on IMDb. Directed by Tomás Flichman. Based on an 1961 short story within book Las otras puertas by Abelardo Castillo who recently died. R.I.P.

Comment: At least boys in at least yellow and red shiny shorts. Not sure about girls. maybe wearing just skirts?

As announced on my bib overalls blog (rating 5, boys+girls), I found this by coincidence and don’t know all episodes. Maybe there are even better scenes?

Originally an 1988 US show but even longer broadcasted in the UK/Scotland as pictured in s1e2.

Rating 7 for now.

Comment: The final update of this series. This pic also showing (other) Handball playing boys, I think from the same episode like the first entry (rating 7). This young boys wearing white and red shorts. At least in light blue shorts (non shiny ?). I prefer the other black shorts.

I also found the handsome teen boys in blue, but they wore long Adidas pants (and mainly headshots). At least in the studio scene I found. Maybe also earlier in shorts. But I doubt that this is from the same series anyway. Perhaps I can find more scenes, when I have more time. But I don’t remember better scenes.

Rating 5 for the boys here. Main entry, rating 8
