Comment: Some few older Soccer boys in shiny white shorts. Also kicking a ball. The other team are Ice Hockey players. I think in longer black shorts.

Some time ago, I found a very brief clip on one of my backups. I can’t even find it right now.

The clip is dated from 1992, but obviously the show was broadcasted in 1996 and I switched the PC date back. (So dates of few other posts might be incorrect as well.)

I haven’t found much on the web. Not on IMDb, Wikipedia and not even on wunschliste.de. Probably a short lived show. Maybe there were other sports kids in other episodes? Or was there just one show?

Rating 5 for now.

Comment: Some boys and teen boys in shorts, shiny shorts and speedos including shirtless scenes, also in shiny shorts. A blonde boy in red Adidas shorts (is it Adidas ?), another older boy in medium blue 70s style tight shorts (also shirtless, sitting and cycling). Younger boys in white, light grey and/or light blue shorts. Maybe not all shorts are shiny.

Quite interesting movie but could be better.

Rating 5-6. I think not on DVD.


Update: James at 15


Next to the perfect swim shorts scenes of Lance Kerwin (rating 10, TOP rank #4, see my TOP 10 pic on the right coloumn) and the locker room scenes, I also found some more PE scenes on YouTube (episode Champions). I didn’t knew that they are on YouTube.

Several shorts and also sitting scenes, including light and dark blue, white, red and grey. Probably not all shiny. Lance Kerwin also in medium blue speedos in the pilot.

I still haven’t checked all episodes. Rating ~7 for these shorts.

Also soon on my bedroom and pigtails blog.


Update: Wie erziehe ich meine Eltern?


Some more and even better scenes in s1e11. And shirtless scenes and black swim shorts of Felix (few and brief scenes at the end).

Felix also in dark blue, modern Adidas shorts and Johanna in black Adidas shorts. Also some few other kids in shiny shorts including a girl in white ones. Also the dad of Felix in blue Adidas shorts.

Main entry rating 5, now maybe a bit higher

Comment: Some boys in longer shorts, a least 2 in white and 1 in red, also sitting and also shirtless in a locker room. The other shorts are probably not shiny.

Interesting plot and scenes. No entry on IMDb. Directed by Tomás Flichman. Based on an 1961 short story within book Las otras puertas by Abelardo Castillo who recently died. R.I.P.

Rating 6.

Comment: Some boys swimming. One boy shirtless in pink swim shorts, one in yellow, one in white or similar and some in black shorts. Maybe not all are shiny. Also skinny dipping scenes.

Also boys and a girl in sailor suits (other blog, rating 5). Not sure about the time setting due to the sailor suits. Should be after a war and childhood memories of the author. Maybe showing the 1940s and 1980s or the shorts are anachronistic.

English title: Holiday in Expectation of a Holiday, Russian title: Праздник ожидания праздника, 1984 novel by Fazil Iskander (1929-2016).

Some very interesting scenes, but rather few (good) shorts scenes.

Rating 4-5 for shorts, movie rating maybe 6-7.

Comment: 11 yo Joerie B. and probably some others in his Soccer team in shiny white shorts.

I found this single snapshot and can’t say much about it. This series is about the career aspirations of 4 kids including this boy following them for one year. (Others wants to be actress, singer and violinist). Aired in the great Sunday morning show “Villa Achterwerk”. Nov-Dec 1994.

Maybe shirtless scenes or else. At least one handsome boy.

Rating 6-7 for now. I hope to find my clip.

Comment: The final update of this series. This pic also showing (other) Handball playing boys, I think from the same episode like the first entry (rating 7). This young boys wearing white and red shorts. At least in light blue shorts (non shiny ?). I prefer the other black shorts.

I also found the handsome teen boys in blue, but they wore long Adidas pants (and mainly headshots). At least in the studio scene I found. Maybe also earlier in shorts. But I doubt that this is from the same series anyway. Perhaps I can find more scenes, when I have more time. But I don’t remember better scenes.

Rating 5 for the boys here. Main entry, rating 8

Comment: Two boys in dark blue and yellow swim shorts in s2e10 and Soccer boys and girls in black, white and blue shorts s2e4.

Also a boy (Bernard) in light blue shorts sitting on the grass, a girl in red and a boy in green shorts (Soccer) and some in the locker room. Unknown episode. YouTube clip “Titles and special effects”.

After Woof!, I also found this nice series from the same Director.

Funny plot about stopping the time. I assume rather few good scenes. Kids are also quite young. I haven’t checked all episodes.

Rating 6-7 for now. Also on my pigtails blog, rating 4.
