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

Update: The Adventures of Skippy

adventuresofskippythebushkangarooadventuresofskippy-yel

I searched for hours but couldn’t identify any of the logos. Is there any good website of logos? The series was filmed in Queensland. Maybe these are local teams, kids teams, school logos, sponsor logos or even fictional teams. This episode is about one team called “Roos”. I only found Socceroos, but I think they have a different logo.

Pic 1 is my favourite. On the shirts, a team logo of a complete black horse (stallion, stud, colt) looking to the left. I couldn’t find anything like this (Australian).

On the shorts a logo like a “c”. Also not sure about that. The closest Australian brand, I found is “Classic Sportswear” with a kangaroo inside the c. Or is it Gatorade as sponsor. Or a “Q” for Queensland. I also found a logo with a ball inside a c. A similar logo is “Champion” (USA). One shirt of a spectator has “Colometa”, maybe a sponsor? Update: Compared to other pics, I beliefe that the c is in fact a Q with a ball inside. But still can’t identify the brand.

2 new pics. Pic 2 showing a logo with a ball on top of a wave. Wave with 3 stripes. Pic 3  a different logo. Maybe a fish or dolphin? Sorry, no better pics. Any help is appreciated. Main entry, rating 9

Update: Cebollitas

cebollitas-ep169cebollitas-ep279

As announced one more update of Cebollitas and the brands. Currently, I don’t have the time to check more episodes. I don’t assume more brands anyway.

Pic 1 from ep 169 showing Fantasmita in blue shiny shorts with 3 horizontal stripes on the legs. 3 stripes are copyrighted and usually must be Adidas, but I doubt that and haven’t found Adidas text or leaf logos. In other episodes like 222, the boys wear blue shorts with 2 stripes. Gamuza wears white Umbro shorts.

Pic 2 from ep 279 showing boys and girls in both white and dark blue shorts playing Basketball (that’s why there are also girls).

Pic 3 showing a young man in purple shorts with stars in ep 200.

Pic 4 showing the boys in black or similar Olan shorts with many larger diamonds in ep 386.

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

Rating: ******
Comment: Dominik and Matthias of band Ketch-up in German Adidas soccer shirts and black shorts. Probably here the song “Eins Zu Null (Hangin’ Tough)”. Also in blue shiny shorts either in this and/or in RTL Kinderhitparade (rating 9). I don’t like the modern black shorts. Maybe more shorts/others?

I found this very brief clip by coincidence on one of my VHS tapes as it was not labeled with this. Around 1 minute only, which is at the end of the show. Not sure if I have more clips on other tapes. Blue shorts probably from a different episode. I only have this 2 scenes. One from a distance showing both boys on the far left, at least showing a bit from the shorts (length of shorts, height of boys). Pic 2 showing a close-up of one of them (maybe Matthias ?) Sorry, no better pics of both (in this show).

Aka “MiniStars” and “Li-La-Launebär präsentiert Die MiniStars”. There’s also a Dutch show/band called De MiniStars and in other countries (with other kids). But I don’t know of shorts in there.

No DVD nor clips known. At least there are CDs. For more infos see RTL Kinderhitparade. Does anybody has better pics or clips especially of the blue shorts?

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: Some Soccer boys in I think shiny, plain white shorts. Also some sitting in the background. There were also commercials of other sports including hurdles (man in shiny yellow 70s shorts in 1989) and maybe some more. Most other sports (including Handball) has people in long pants. Swimming in speedos.

I found 2 clips on YouTube, one in bad (this one) and one in very bad and darker image quality. Maybe there are more (untitled) commercial compilations including this as well? I somewhere have it partly on VHS but I think the end (from a distance) only.

One handsome boy with spiked hair (headshot). Also shown Otto Rehagel.

Rating 4-5.

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.

 

Update 2: Manni, der Libero

manniderlibero-ep13

The home team including Thomas Ohrner (on left) mainly wore blue Adidas shorts with yellow stripes (and inner briefs), see other entry, but also the regular blue ones with white stripes which look much better to me. I think rather few scenes in ep 13 (pictured) and I think in ep 4 in ironed shorts (but I don’t like that).

Main entry, rating 6 (also 2 more posts including Puma shorts)
