Comment: Some Soccer playing girls in ep 70 (s6e5, 2009) in white and green shorts and Fiete and Cem in board shorts in ep 5. Maybe more in other episodes? But obviously very few scenes. Most likely Basketball shorts.

Has been rebroadcasted yesterday.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 5 (females only).

English title The Peppercorns. Set in Hamburg.

Upcoming episode 190 (s15e8, Schwimmbadhelden, Dec 15) might have swim shorts or board shorts.


Update: Believe (2013)


I have completely checked this movie (at high speed) for my overalls blog. Indeed many (good) scenes of shiny shorts/Soccer (f,m). Next to the white and great light blue shorts, there are also dark blue shorts.

And at least the goalkeeper (white shorts) wore black compression shorts underneath.

Main entry, still rating 7


Plaese also note my previous post.


Update: Mees Kees langs de lijn


Nice, medium blue shorts with yellow border and at least some of the dark blue shorts are from Adidas with red stripes (pic 1 on the left). Girls in black shorts like the goalkeeper but not or not that shiny.

The series Mees Kees (2017) also has to be checked completely (currently running).

Mees Kees op de planken also has to be added (very few swimming scenes and most shorts are probably board shorts. At least one boy in shorter, maybe shiny red shorts.

English title: Mister Twister at the Pitch.

Main entry, previously rating 3, now rather ~5

Who in shorts: boys ~15-17 ?, men
Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Clothing occurence: low ?
Rating:  2/10 ?
Rating: **
Comment: Mainly or only older teen boys and men in mainly modern, longer shiny white Soccer shorts including one of the main characters, 15 yo Caue Campos as Capim (unpictured, also sitting). Also some ladies and men in yellow shorts/dresses.

I found this during research for other series of Brazil for my overalls blog.

The movie is obviously quite poor compared to the series. But I don’t know shiny shorts in that (only cotton).

Rating ~2 for now only. I think also few scenes. And the boys are old and long shorts.

Comment: Next to the famous movies, there’s this quite new TV series with partly different actors, including the main character (the teacher). Some boys and girls playing Soccer, at PE (also lying on the ground) and one episode with a charity run, latter one unknown if shiny shorts.

Currently running on Kika.

Also on my bib overalls blog (rating 3) and soon on my bedroom (rating ~5-6) and pigtails blogs.

I don’t know all episodes.

For shorts rating ~3-4 for now.



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: 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.

Comment: Young Soccer boys outside at a coast. One team in mostly tight, white Adidas Junior shorts with dark blue stripes, the other team in plain white shorts.

Also boys in bib overalls (other blog, rating 3).

By coincidence I found this scenes. Probably a rather short scene (song “La pelota loca” by Teresa Rabal). I don’t know the complete movie but most of it and don’t assume (much) more shorts scenes.

As the boys are very young, rating 3-4 only.

Comment: Boys and girls in different kind of sports in shiny shorts, mainly Adidas.

Searching for a different movie of this band, I found some short clips on YouTube by coincidence.

Pic 1 showing 2 girls in shiny white Adidas shorts with matching shirts (big logo). Boys in red and white Adidas shorts, also blue shorts (unknown if Adidas). One chubby boy playing Tennis in white Adidas shorts. Other sports like PE and swimming. Swimming unknown if just speedos.

Needs to be rechecked as I don’t know the complete movie. Also other movies of them. One clip has slow-mo scenes. Movie is part 5 of 7 in this movie series. DVD might be OOP.

Rating 5-6 for now.
