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

Update: Unknown 11 – Australian movie or series

unknown11cunknown11d

I found these 2 pics, which are obviously from the same series (or movie). Also titled Australian 1990. Note, the same garden door. I still haven’t found any clips.

Maybe this was just aired in 1990 in Germany. Looks more like an early 1980s series according to the old cars. Also rare, the boy has crossed chains on his chest.

Somehow the blonde boy looks familiar. It must be much easier now, to find this one.

Comment: I thought, I already had this series. Several kids and teens in swimwear including shiny shorts and shirtless scenes. But many in speedos. At least an older man in light red shorts.

Pic 1 is from ep 11 showing an older boy in light blue shorts. Pics 2+3 are from ep 5 showing a younger and an older boy in dark blue, 70s style shorts. I don’t know all episodes. Maybe more and even better scenes, not sure about girls and women.

Rating 6 for now.

Also for a long time on my bedroom blog, rating 4.

Comment: I found these 2 tiny pics on one of my backups some time ago. I must have or had one or 2 short clips in a very tiny resolution (160 px). One of my first tries on capturing from my old tapes. Unfortunately, I also couldn’t find the original tape, yet.

I’m not sure, but I think this is from the German TV magazine “pur” showing American junior lifeguards in dark blue swim shorts. I’m pretty sure that these are US boys, Australians often wear speedos.

The file dates are from 1999 but could be changed (earlier or later). Maybe someone remembers this episode and can help? Probably this wasn’t an original German production but an US one. So, who knows the alternate title?

Some good scenes and handsome kids.

Rating 6 for now.

Comment: Some boys in Basketball shorts (pic from song: Ezekiel Saw the Wheel) also a cheerleading girl in light grey shorts and a toddler boy and older girl sitting in shiny dark blue shorts. Probably some more.

Pic 2 showing a shirtless boy sitting in wet, light green / turqouise swim shorts in “Who Did (Swallow Jonah)?” from DVD Silly Songs (1995). But few and brief scenes. Also a boy sitting in purple short, but I think not shiny.

Also many boys and girls in bib overalls and shortalls, partly raw denim (other blog, rating 8), especially in DVD Songs of America.

I don’t know all clips. Rating 4-5 for now only. I assume rather few shiny shorts scenes.

Comment: There are 2, rather brief scenes. 1st a Soccer scene with young teen boys in white and black shiny shorts. And also an indoor pool scene with teen boys shirtless in board shorts. Nothing special.

There are better movies.

Comment: One teen boy, I think Mikkel Bratt Silset (pic 1) sitting in colorful, long board shorts. Also some other boys at an indoor pool including one in oversized medium blue swim or board shorts. Another one in black. I think few and brief scenes near the beginning only and most from a distance.

So rating 4-5 only. Directed by Erik Richter Srand. English title: Sons.

Interesting plot, but there are much better movies. Movie rating also ~4 only.

Comment: Some nice swimming und even underwater scenes of the two or three brothers. Unfortunately few and brief scenes near the beginning only. Sorry, I’m running out of good movies. Please make some suggestions!

14 or 15 yo Michael-James Wixted as David in beige or similar, striped swim shorts, his older film brother (Hart Bochner) in dark blue or green shorts. Not sure about the younger boy, Andrew (Brad Savage, pic below “Salem’s Lot”, “The Apple Dumpling Gang”) who’s sitting in a boat.

Also nice bedroom scenes (other blog, rating 7), will also soon be updated (dorm).

Quite interesting and handsome boys, but for the brief shorts scenes, rating 4-5 only.

Comment: Michael McGreevery (I think the older boy Arthur on the right in blue shorts) and Bill Mumy shirtless in swim shorts. Of course these 60s shorts are not really shiny.

I don’t remember the complete movie.

For shorts, rating 3-4 only. Movie maybe higher. I like Billy Mumy.
