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: Kinderen voor Kinderen 4

Thanks once more Erik, for pointing out that the brand is Rucanor. The Dutch company even still exists. Obviously, also the other white, red and blue shorts are from Rucanor as well.

Unfortunately, the clip is rather short and rather few close-ups, but some very good scenes. Very interesting shiny shorts!

Pic 2 is from the same episode a bit later with boys and girls in other, white shorts. More 70s style.

Episode 6 also coming soon. Main entry at

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

After finding an unknown Austrian (or other) brand and nice Dutch shorts, I make this list (work in progress). Any help is appreciated. Maybe I’ll make separate tags or lists (Adidas are too much, maybe for Adidas Junior or rare models or color). I have to find more close-up scenes. Most or all companies making shorts for both sports and swimwear. Not sure about other sports like boxing. Pic from Kinderen voor Kinderen 4.

Update: I could identify another brand OLAN worn in Cebollitas. They wore some other brands including Adidas and one yet unknown with a diamond Logo and pattern. Maybe I will make a list about Cebollitas. One minute later, I found the brand with the diamond, that they mainly wore in Cebollitas: Umbro. Thanks to Erik for pointing out the Rucanor 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: At least this young lady playing tennis in short, white shiny shorts. Also close-up and even withouth clothes playing tennis. I only noticed this very brief scene.

Not sure if anybody of my readers is interested in women. But I recently found it and so add it here as well.

Very funny movies and TV series. But I think very few and good shorts scenes.

So rating 3-4 for now only.
