Comment: At least one young men (Steve Antin ?) in light grey shorts (probably not shiny) and white underwear underneath making sit-ups. Also a young lady in tight red shiny Adidas shorts and men (boxing) in red, dark blue and I think black shorts (black maybe not shiny). Maybe some more colors?

Many, many years ago, at it’s airing in Germany in ~1990, I somehow liked the scene in pic 1. But now, I prefer younger actors. Maybe someone is interested in young men or women.

To me rating 2-3 only.

Update: Kinderen voor Kinderen 4

Thanks once more Erik, for pointing out that the brand is Rucanor. The Dutch company even still exists. Obviously, also the other white, red and blue shorts are from Rucanor as well.

Unfortunately, the clip is rather short and rather few close-ups, but some very good scenes. Very interesting shiny shorts!

Pic 2 is from the same episode a bit later with boys and girls in other, white shorts. More 70s style.

Episode 6 also coming soon. Main entry at

Update: Schülergeschichten

schuelergeschichten-n2

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.

Main entry, including locker room and shirtless scenes at

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.

Comment: Some boys in swim shorts in different episodes. Mainly most wore speedos when swimming. Pic 1, one boy in larger, medium blue shiny swim shorts also sitting (also another one in nice yellow speedos), pic 2 one in wet yellow, green, red ones. I think also episodes about Soccer at least one in white shorts. One boy boxing in light blue shiny shorts in ep 28 and boys in light and medium blue shorts (one in sweatpants underneath), both pics coming soon.

Another swimming scene in ep 68 “Flachschwimmer” unlike almost all other episodes available on DVD. At least one teen boy in dark swim shorts. PE, Basketball and locker room scenes in ep 33 “Der Andere” at least one shirtless in medium blue shiny shorts.

Good shirtless swimming scenes and handsome boys in “Der Fünfzigmarkschein” and “Nie wider Ibiza” but I think either speedos or board shorts.

Great family series about friendships. I don’t know all episodes and have some partially on VHS. I have to check for the episode names of the ones pictured and also other episodes. But I remember rather few good shiny shorts scenes.

Rating 7-8 for now. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4.

Subtitle: “Filme über Freunde heute”. Although always used, the word “heute” doesn’t belong to the subtitle to me, but it’s obviusly the announcement (“today” showing) of the actual episode as separately shown at the intro at a different frame.

Update: Der Tag, an dem Anton den Widerlan fand

I finally found my tape. In total around 2-3 minutes (interrupted). Only one PE scene, around 1 minute. First, one boy in shiny, light red shorts and later the sporty, blonde boy (last pic in the middle) in light green shorts, probably the same brand, unknown if shiny. Can anybody identify the brand? Looks like an “LO” or <O. On the sides are white patterns like a row of “><” .

One more pic of a chubby boy sitting in medium blue shorts in the main entry (only shown from a distance). There’s also a girl in pink shorts (probably not shiny) and the chubby boy in large, white shorts (non shiny, pic 4 on the left). Anton is on the right. He usually wore belted, light blue, purple checkered cotton shorts/knickers.

The sporty boy is later shown at home sitting on an exercise bike but in long, light grey cotton pants. I haven’t made a vid, just some few pics at higher res.

Comment: Some Soccer boys and teen boys in many different colored shorts including yellow, white, red, blue and black.

I think few and brief scenes only. Novel by Gina Basso. I think not on DVD.

I’m still searching for my Italian coming of age movie.

Rating 4-5 for this one.

Comment: When I remember it correctly, there’s at least one PE scene with boys and maybe girls probably in shiny shorts, also sitting on benches (probably at least white and blue ones, maybe red) and one athletic boy with a treadmill at home (not sue if shorts and/or long pants). The main character is 10 yo, maybe some kids are 11 or even older.

I had to think about this series, maybe because of the announcement of The Little Ghost (2013) (Das Kleine Gespenst, bedroom blog, rating 6).

I must have one or two episodes (partly) on VHS and maybe some few digitized pics or short clips. I didn’t came across them, the recent searches and I currently don’t have the time to check again all my backups and tapes.

Pics will hopefully be added later. Nice series, unfortunately not available on DVD.

Rating 6 for now. Updte: Found. Removing tag white, adding red and green. Some few more pics at

Comment: Some boys (6th graders) in shorts and swim shorts. Not sure about the country pictured, probably Greece in or around 1989. Boys in white, red and black shorts. Black shorts with (2 ?) yellow stripes. Probably some more in shorts and I think also orange shorts. Swim shorts in Dutch colors blue, white and red. Most or all others here in speedos). Not sure about girls.

I don’t remember the original game show and probably only saw the final 1989 and/or 1988 episode in where the winning class won a journey. Not sure if there were also kids in the studio in shorts.

Needs to be rechecked for this and the original show and other colors.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Update: I found some more episodes on VHS labeled with Tunisia, Yugoslavia, Turkey and Soviet Union (Moscow). Probably pic 1 is in Turkey. Pic 2 could be in Tunisia but I still think in Greece. I also remember a scene where they are on an ancient archaelogical site either Greece or Turkey (but probably Greece). At least half of them in shiny shorts.

Comment: There are obviously Soccer scenes of probably older teen boys or men in shiny blue and red shorts. And also swimming scenes (not sure if just speedos or swim shorts as well).

I have or had a TV recording, but currently only found short clips and trailers.

So needs to be rechecked later.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 5.

There’s also a 2008 TV series, but I don’t remember shiny shorts in that.
