Update 4: Meatballs

meatballs-u3emeatballs-u3c

As announced, another, final update of Meatballs. I have checked most of the important scenes more carefully and almost all (Adidas) shorts turned out to be not shiny but of cotton fabric, including the green ones.

I just found an interesting scene at 12 minutes (pic 1) with the young boys. There’s one boy in medium blue, shiny shorts with 4 stripes, also lying on the bed. Another boy in (non-shiny) dark blue Adidas shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy in 70s style red shorts (after 36 minutes) at the parent’s day being embraced.

Pic 3 at 1h21 showing a girl in white (shiny) Adidas and another girl in dark blue shiny 70s shorts. The man, I already had.

Pic 4 showing older teen boys/young men, one in white 70s shorts, one in medium blue sitting, one in orange shorts with red sweat pants underneath and an older teen girl in tight, white shorts.

Unpictured: Another young man in sweat pants underneath at the wrestling scene at 1h11. And another boy in red shorts at 1h21 (rear view, from a distance) next many others. I think, there’s one young boy sitting in black shorts (but from a distance) and maybe also dark yellow shorts (not shiny). So almost all colors, except pink and purple. Not sure about grey ones.

I think, I have to recheck the movie again later at slow speed, especially the audience. Most and best scenes near the end at the different competitions. Main overview entry, rating 8 at

Update 2: Meatballs

meatballs-at36meatballs-at1h21

I now have completely rechecked my DVD. There are much more (shiny) shorts scenes including young women. But mostly young men/ older teen boys. Most colors are red and white. I don’t want too much pics in a single post and will make at least one more update later.

Some very good Adidas shorts (including women), but some aren’t shiny. Also other shorts including jeans shorts. Also few boys in speedos. I think no board shorts.

Pic 1 showing my favourite scene of Rudy at 36 minutes in shiny white 70s style shorts with red boarders. More scenes at the very end (pic 2, a bit wet). He mainly wore jeans shorts.

Pic 2 at 1h21 also showing a boy in red shiny Adidas shorts (with inner briefs) and an older boy in rare, orange Adidas (Handball ?) shorts with dark blue stripes. Brief scene. Also a shirtless older teen boy in dark green Adidas shorts, but probably not shiny.

Pic 3 at 1h17 showing next to 2 older kids in red shorts (is the right one a girl ?) also 2 boys on the left in white and blue shorts. Another spectators also there, dark blue shorts, probably not shiny, another one in red and I think green.

Pic 4 at 17 minutes showing a boy in white shorts (good scenes walking downstairs) and another one on the left in dark blue shorts.

One older teen boy in beige shorts at 1h04 (close up). One older guy wearing sweat pants underneath orange shorts. Also sitting scenes of boys (distance).

As said more pics, including women later. I also found another boy and girl in bib overalls (see my other blog, rating 3).

Notable scenes:

4 minutes, 10, 12, 17, 28, 29, 36, 45, 1h03, 1h04, 1h18, 1h21.

Main entry, still rating 8 (but rather 7-8) at

Comment:
Finally some very good shiny Adidas shorts. By coincidence, or better during research, I found this interesting series. (Teen) boys and girls mainly in white shorts. 70s style white shorts with a red stripe and boarders but also already shiny, white Adidas shorts with dark blue stripes, also sitting.

Mainly in the studio doing sports but also other kids outside in other colored shorts like blue and light green (not Adidas).

I don’t know all episodes. ACCESS Network and TVOntario 40×10 minutes.

Rating at least 8 for now. They should release this on DVD.

Comment: As announced, this earlier Langnese commercial. First, some older teen boys, maybe playing Basketball in different shorts, including dark blue, red and yellow.

A young lady cycling in tight shiny dark blue shorts (rear view) and at least some men jogging in 70s style red shorts. Maybe some more persons?

Probably most straight guys like the cycling lady. Not bad, but also very brief scene. The other boys or young men are less of interest.

The 1985 commercial (rating 8) is much better, including the song.

Rating 4 for this one. There are some more Lagnese, also later commercials, but I haven’t checked those.

Update: You Can’t Do That on Television

ycdtotv-s4e7ycdtotv-shinyn1

I found some more episodes showing shorts. Pics 1, 2+4 are from s4e7 (1983) Inequality: Kids vs. adults. Looks like a girl in pic 4 in dark blue shorts but not sure as there are also longhaired boys.

Pic 3 is from Looking Cool (season 9, 1990) looks like short, yellow Basketball shorts. Unknown if shiny. Brief views and shirts are long.

There are probably more scenes, unfortunately some episodes got deleted.

Main entry, rating 8

Comment: Some older teen boys and teen girls at PE in medium blue shorts (one climbing up a rope with longer underwear underneath). Also teen boys in red and yellow shorts, I think playing Basketball.

There are better movies. Actors are quite old.

And I think rather few good scenes. Filmed in 1987. Part 1 in Germany was Slaughter High.

So, rating 4 for now only.

Comment: Some few teen boys and girls including Zoey in purple track shorts. One teen girl in shorter ones. Unfortunately not Dustin.

Has been aired 2 days ago. Purple is my favourite color (for modern shorts, next to light blue) and dark blue and yellow for 70s style shorts.

Few and brief scenes.

So rating 4-5 only for this episode.

Main entry, currently rating 5 (for season 1), series still running

Comment: As announced on my bib overalls blog (f/m, but mainly girls and teen girls, currently rating 6), there are some few boys and girls in (shiny) shorts, too.

At least a boy, I think handicapped, in oversized pink shorts in s3e24, a boy in dark blue shorts in s2e20, 2 white stripes. And a girl in black or similar shorts in s3e37.

Some older teen girls playing Basketball in  red shorts but probably not shiny (s1e6).

For now, rating 4-5 only due to the few and brief scenes.

They sometimes wore costumes in the studio, also on my western blog, rating 5.

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: Teens in purple shiny track shorts in s1e11

Comment: Some boys and also men, women and I think girls in shiny shorts. Best scene at 48 minutes (pic 1 showing boys walking in grey, medium blue (70s style) and dark blue shorts. Also other shorts here like yellow, red, white, black, grey and some more but not shiny, maybe the black and white ones.)

Pic 2 showing a woman in tight red shorts at 1h09.

Pic 3 at 1h05 showing a barefooted boy in light green shorts. Not shown, but in this scene in the background is a shirtless, young boy in yellow shorts. Also some more older teen boys or men shirtless.

As annonced this interesting 80s movie.

Also other scenes of interest like boys in Baseball clothes (also sitting) and a young lady with very long pigtails (pic 1 on front, soon on my other blog, rating 5).

Rating 7. Great movie, but unfortunately rather few and brief perfect scenes. Needs to be rechecked at slow speed.
