Comment: Some teen boys in different shorts, but probably most shorts aren’t shiny. Maybe the red and yellow ones. Also the red shorts of a man look shiny. Pics from s1e9 The Race. Other colors include dark blue, black, medium green, light blue and light pink (Pugwall, but not shiny). Pic 1 on left showing the drummer Orfo sitting in red shorts; my favourite band member.

Also young men shirtless in board shorts also a boy in season 2 but very brief scenes and from a distance. I don’t know all episodes (especially season 1 needs to be rechecked) but obviously few or no scenes in other episodes.

Interesting series, I used to watch back then. Also a girl and older teen boy in bib overalls, other blog, rating 5. For shorts, rating ~3-4 only.

Comment: Some boys (and maybe girls and men?) in at least medium blue and red 70s shorts (but maybe not shiny). Red shorts also sitting, but side view. Also Daniel Lobo probably in shiny white shorts and sleeveless white/red shirt in 1986 (I currently can’t access this YouTube vid mdf0YFuqsrk). Pics should be from episode 1 of 1977.

Also boys, girls, men and women in bib overalls or similar on my other blog, rating 8 (soon to be updated). Also nice rooms.

Vids of the 80s are quite rare and most vids have a bad image quality. There are also some (publicity) pics.

So needs to be rechecked.

Update: also shirtless scenes in red shorts in 1985.

Comment: Another, older suggestion, (Sorry, I’m running out of movies, please prepare for less frequent blogging and please more suggestions !).

One blond man in black Adidas sampdoria shorts with white stripes. Obviously black compression shorts underneath.

I don’t like men in shorts and I don’t like much black shorts either, but at least compression shorts, so rating 2 instead of 1. For the sake of completion. I don’t have any posts rating 1, so this is my least favourite one. He’s not that old or ugly, though. I only have checked this briefly.

Comment: Some boys and maybe some girls in (shiny) short. Pic from the 2017 contest showing 2 boys in black and yellow shorts, both Adidas. Sitting, standing. Also a brief scene of a young boy shirtless in a pool in swim shorts.

I found this by coincidence or better hard research on YouTube. Obviusly a local contest. Not sure if broadcasted on local TV or most-likely just online.

I haven’t checked all episodes.

There are also girls in shorts, but most or all shorts aren’t shiny.

Rating even 6-7 for now.

Originally, I wanted to post “Double Dare” today. But the shorts turned out to be long jogging pants interrupted with a knee pad.

Comment: Some boys and girls in (at least) black Adidas Junior shorts, also wet games. Some shorts appear longer (two shorts ?). Handsome blonde kids. Maybe also some in the audience in shorts?

Another, older suggestion. Thanks very much! And sorry, I forgot these.

3 YouTube clips titled Rally Planeten, but Rallyplaneten is the correct title.

Based on the British show “Run the Risk” (and earlier Double Dare). There are also some other shows in other countries, mainly in the 90s like “Drops!” in Germany but mainly the Nickelodeon shows. But I don’t remember shiny shorts in there. Needs to be rechecked for other and upcoming clips.

No entry on IMDb. Aired on TV4. Hosts: David Hellenius and Sofia Eriksson.

Update: The Love Boat (1977)

loveboat-s1e3

I have briefly rechecked this episode (s1e3) and uploaded a better, complete pic of this one, 16 yo Scott Baio shirtless in wet, white shiny shorts with 3 red stripes (not sure if these are Adidas).  Also showing Kristy McNichol in white shorts but probably not shiny.

I have briefly checked some episodes of season 1 , but haven’t found any other scenes of interest.

Also recently 2 episodes on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl, rating up to 3).

Main entry here, rating 9 (maybe now a bit lower) at

Update: Dallas (1978)

dallas-s10e3dallas-s9e27s

I have briefly checked several episodes, mainly of seasons 8-12 (and I own seasons 13+14). I found some few more pool scenes of younger Christopher and John Ross. junior and others.

Pic 1 showing Christopher shirtless in brown/colorful or similar wet swim shorts (not shiny) in s10e3 (sitting and also walking rear view, distance). Pic 2 probably John Ross jun. in s9e27 I think in shiny swim shorts (white and black ?). Underwater scenes, also over water but few and brief scenes and distance.

Christopher also in bathing trunks, light blue or similar in s10e5, John Ross jun. in red speedos in s8e2 and a toddler (Eric Farlow as Christopher ??) in dark blue shiny shorts sitting in s8e2. There are probably more swimming scenes (of others, mainly men) in earlier episodes, but I don’t have the time to check all episodes.

Much better, of course, is older Omri Katz in purple shorts (rating 10, TOP#1)

Update: Diff’rent Strokes

diffrentstrokes-s1e22diffrentstrokes-s1e22b

While updating my bib overalls blog, I found 2 more episodes with shorts.

Some teen girls in s1e22. Most shorts might not be shiny including light red, yellow, pink and medium blue. At least 2 girls in dark blue or similar shorts which are probably shiny, also sitting. And one younger girl in tight shortalls.

In s7e22 there’s a shirtless, black teen boy/young man in tight, medium blue shorts.

I don’t like any of those. The girls are quite interesting. Rating ~3-4.

Main entry, rating 3 (older teen boys)

Comment: Several boys and girls in 70s shorts. Most shorts of the boys aren’t shiny like jeans shorts and bermudas. One blonde boy, I think Robbie Rist in white Adidas shorts or pants (and) white 70s shorts. At least 2 girls in light blue shorts. Other girls in white, light red, yellow and tight dark blue shorts. Some shorts maybe not shiny.

I found this by coincidence and like these ABC and CBS Afterschool movies (rating 10, TOP#3 on my bib overalls blog). Some few other entries here, rating up to 6.

Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~4-5.

For shorts rating ~6. Nice camp plot including tents and canoes. Unfortunately few boys in shiny shorts.

Update: Baywatch (1989)

baywatch-s1e3baywatch-s1e3b

I have briefly checked most episodes of season 1. 2 more and better pics, both from s1e3. Brandon Call and other boys in dark blue, shiny shorts. The rear view of Brandond Call looks somehow a bit strange. Maybe he’s a bit too thin.

Lots of supporting actors especially on the beach but mainly very brief scenes and from a distance.

Most men in red shorts. I have to check the later seasons (Jeremy Jackson and for supporting actors and girls/women).

Main entry, rating 8
