Update 2: Achterbahn (1992)

achterbahn9achterbahn-derandere

For now, the final update of Achterbahn.

Pic 1 showing a Soccer boy in white shiny shorts, probably from ep. 9. Probably more boys of this and the other teams. Pic 2 from ep 33 “Der Andere” (completely on YouTube).  Nice PE and locker room scenes. Also shirtless, but I think rather few shiny shorts. Reminds me of “Sich kennenlernen, sich vertragen”.

Rating ~6-7

I have to search for more episodes. Many swim scenes, but I think mainly or only in speedos and non-shiny shorts.

Main entry rating 7 at

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.

List 6: Cebollitas brands

cebollitas252cebollitas75cebollitas252b

Some time ago, I checked almost all 458 episodes of this Argentinian series for my bib overalls blog. I don’t have the time to recheck all episodes. The boys (and sometimes girls) wore at least ~4 or 5 different Soccer shorts + swim shorts. Although a Soccer series, I think there’s less than half of the time Soccer shown.

I think they mainly wore shorts of the brand Umbro (mainly medium blue and white ones (pics 2+4, main entry pic 1). The logo is a diamond and text Umbro underneath and a horizontal diamond band at the legs and a thin stripe above.

Pic 1 showing them sitting in plain white shorts of brand Olan in ep 252, another pic in the main entry. The logo is shown in pic 3. Also in plain black shorts and shirts at the beginning of ep 222. And black shorts with many little white and red diamonds in ep 386.

Later in ep 222 the other team wore different black shorts with 2 horizontal stripes and black shirts (pic 5). To me the logo says “Power” but not sure (at least starting with “Po”). I haven’t found this brand (maybe no-name brand or sponsored?)

Also other shorts with 3 and 2 horizontal stripes on the legs. At least one more post coming soon also showing young girls (Basketball) and a man in purple shorts. Unfortunately, the second half of the series is only available in a very bad image quality. Main entry, rating 10 at

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.

Comment: I think Eric Foster shirtless but dry in light yellow swim shorts. All or most others of the swim team in speedos. One teen boy wet in tight, white swim shorts or briefs.

I only have checked this briefly and assume very few good scenes. But the movie is obviously very interesting. Handsome boy.

So rating 6-7 for now. Needs to be rechecked completely at slow speed. I hope for a soon broadcasting.

Comment: Some older “teens” or more likely young men and women in different, mainly 70s style shiny shorts including yellow, white, black, turqouise, medium and dark blue. Also sitting scenes (yellow shirtless) and also at least 2 men with sweatpants underneath (lying on the floor).

I found this by coincidence but haven’t seen the complete movie.

Typical movie of it’s time. Teens are quite old. Mainly 20s and 30s. Starring 33 yo Mauro Di Franceso and 19 yo Isabella Ferrari.

Rating 2-3 only.

Comment: Some boys in longer, modern shorts including medium and dark blue, orange and black and also at least 2 boys shirtless in swim shorts (medium blue and black). Scenes at 15 and 17 minutes.

Rating 4-5 only.

Few and brief scenes and I prefer shorter shorts. Swim shorts are even worse. So rating 4 instead of 5. There are better movies.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl, rating 6) and my bedroom blog, rating 6 as well.

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.

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.
