Comment: At least Martin Davis in dark blue 70s shorts (not sure if shiny) and grey sweat pants underneath in s1e21. Rather few good scenes. Also sitting on the floor. He only starred in 2 episodes. Maybe some few more in other episodes?

Many supporting actors and also scenes outside. But I only have seen some few episodes. Also girls tap dancing in short clothes in s2e5 (I think no shorts) and other sports in other episodes.

In fact, I searched for Chad Allen series and found this by coincidence.

Also soon on my bedroom blog and my overalls blog.

Currently for shorts rating 3 only. Series itself maybe better.


Update 3: Kidsongs


Some more pics/scenes of Kidsongs.

I already had the white, shiny Soccer shorts (goalkeeper boy in red) but this showing another scene. Also boys and girls in black shorts in the same song. New YouTube clip called Kidsongs TV Show – Let’s Learn Yo Yo Tricks – Dancing Kids – Fun For Kids.

Pic 3 from TV Show We Love Kids Sports ! – Take Me Out To the Ballgame – Basketball Kids. Next to one of the girls in light blue shiny shorts (I already had) also yellow and black, dark blue and grey. Maybe not all shiny.

In pic 4 there’s again light blue but also a girl in purple shorts on the left (same ep.). Also track&field, black boys in white shorts (maybe not shiny).

Also an update of Kidsongs TV Show on my overalls blog f,m rating 7.

Main entry here, rating 8 f,m

Comment: Boys and teen boys in red and medium blue shiny shorts.

Thanks Fisty Flynn for suggesting this and pointing out that this was a real TV series. No entry on IMDb (but on BFI).

Most clips on YouTube showing boys around 15 yo and most clips have a very poor image quality. Pic 1 from a clip called Donnelly V Hendry. Pic 2 from Belt 3 Bout #1 showing younger boys.

According to New Scientists, there were 1100 boys aged 14-19. But obviously, there were also younger boys. I can’t say much more like how long the series was aired (should be 4 or 5 seasons) or # of episodes.

I don’t like much boxing.

Rating ~5-6 (mainly for the younger boys).

Comment: I knew it. Next to the swimming scenes (speedos and trunks) there’s also this Soccer (PE) scene in s3e4 with teen boys in long shorts in many different colors. Nick Julius Schuck (middle, behind another boy), both in medium blue shorts.

I think not all shorts are shiny or that shiny. Most likeley shiny are the green and red ones. Not sure about light grey. Black and most dark blue ones probably not shiny.

2 years later Nick Julius Schuck is around 15 and very thin but still handsome. I even forgot to watch the recent 2 episodes. The episodes getting again extremely touching. Now also on my bedroom blog, rating 3.

For this brief scene rating 4-5. Main entry, rating 6 at



Update: De bal is rond


I found some more scenes of the described yellow and light grey shorts. And yesterday also orange shorts, I didn’t remember and found earlier.

Shirt labeled with “lotto”, not sure about the shorts but probably. Brand or sponsor?

Rating ~7 for this new pics. Also teen girls in shiny shorts, but I have to search for more pics.

Main entry rating 10

Comment: Some boys in a locker room and probably playing Soccer (or Handball) before (I think PE). One in dark blue Adidas (Junior ?) one in medium blue shiny shorts, another one in black ones (maybe not shiny). One boy pulling down the shorts of one boy revealing that he wore at least 3 pairs of underwear (light grey retro shorts+2 mini briefs above). I don’t remember why.

Searching for something else (Alles Paletti (1985), coming soon), I found these 3 pics.

Currently, I can’t say much more. Digitized or recorded/aired in 2007 on sat1. Maybe earlier production. But I think not 80s as most boys wore longer, modern, colorful cotton shorts/bermudas including purple. One boy wearing a Nike Air shirt which can’t be in the early 80s. Can anybody help or identify the female (teacher)?

Could be a divorce drama. If it’s a series with a teacher, it might be found easily. But I fear it’s a TV movie. I captured the pics only almost 1 year ago, and obviously didn’t knew the title then and forgot to post them. I think captured from a brief clip from one of my DVDr or backup discs. I currently don’t have the time to check once more all of my discs or tapes.

A very similar scene is in Achterbahn (ep 33) (but that wasn’t aired on sat1).

I also uploaded a (descent) pic of Dallas.

Comment: At least one younger boy shirtless in longer, dark blue shorts with orange parts and 2 older teen boys in medium and dark blue swim shorts but mainly older teen boys and mainly in board shorts (also wet like in s3e12). Pics from s2e2.

I don’t know all episodes, so it’s possible, that I miss good scenes.

I found an indoor pool, but girl only (not in shorts) and other sports but long pants only.

Rating 3-f for now only. Based on a book series.

Comment: Originally, I searched for a waterpark scene showing older Omri Katz and Joshua Harris in around season 12, 11 (or 10), but I only found this, earlier episode s7e4. I think Omri Katz in pic 1 and some other boys and men including Christopher Atkins in blue speedos. One younger boy in red 70s style shorts, also walking (rear view).

Does anybody know the later waterpark scene? According publicity pics, at least Joshua Harris in colorful board shorts, probably Omri in board shorts as well.

Main entry (Omri in purple shorts, not pictured, rating 10, TOP#1) at


Also soon an update of my Western blog.

On TV: Club der roten Bänder – season 3


Monday on TV the new and final season 3.

Not sure if shiny shorts. Pic from season 1 showing Nick Julius Schuck.

Great and very touching series. I used to watch Dittsche after it, but it’s not aired this time.

Main entry, rating 6


Please also note my previous entry.

Update: Swimming scenes at the end of s3e2 but older teen boys and trunks not shorts. But there’s hope.

Rating:  6/10

Comment: Boys and girls in longer, dark blue and dark red shiny shorts including main character Marny Kennedy as Taylor in s1e8. At least the blue shorts are from brand Admiral. Another episode is s1e10 (The Cross Country) in medium blue and black shorts, but I think not shiny.

Another great and funny Australian series. Although I don’t like Hector, but Taylor is nice. Also soon on my pigtails log, rating 7.

I haven’t checked all episodes. Maybe swim shorts as well?

For now rating 6-7.
