Update 4: Meatballs

meatballs-u3emeatballs-u3c

As announced, another, final update of Meatballs. I have checked most of the important scenes more carefully and almost all (Adidas) shorts turned out to be not shiny but of cotton fabric, including the green ones.

I just found an interesting scene at 12 minutes (pic 1) with the young boys. There’s one boy in medium blue, shiny shorts with 4 stripes, also lying on the bed. Another boy in (non-shiny) dark blue Adidas shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy in 70s style red shorts (after 36 minutes) at the parent’s day being embraced.

Pic 3 at 1h21 showing a girl in white (shiny) Adidas and another girl in dark blue shiny 70s shorts. The man, I already had.

Pic 4 showing older teen boys/young men, one in white 70s shorts, one in medium blue sitting, one in orange shorts with red sweat pants underneath and an older teen girl in tight, white shorts.

Unpictured: Another young man in sweat pants underneath at the wrestling scene at 1h11. And another boy in red shorts at 1h21 (rear view, from a distance) next many others. I think, there’s one young boy sitting in black shorts (but from a distance) and maybe also dark yellow shorts (not shiny). So almost all colors, except pink and purple. Not sure about grey ones.

I think, I have to recheck the movie again later at slow speed, especially the audience. Most and best scenes near the end at the different competitions. Main overview entry, rating 8 at

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: Meatballs

I found another very good screenshot of this famous 1979 movie on another hard disc showing 2 boys in white shiny shorts at 17 minutes, I think one is from Adidas.

I own the DVD but forgot to recheck it completetly and currently, I’m very busy.

It’s mainly of interest of 14 or 15 yo Chris Makepeace (also in white and other shorts), but I don’t like him and his haircut.

So still needs to be checked, but I think there are mainly older “teen boys”.

Main entry, currently rating 8 (maybe a bit lower)

Comment:
Finally some very good shiny Adidas shorts. By coincidence, or better during research, I found this interesting series. (Teen) boys and girls mainly in white shorts. 70s style white shorts with a red stripe and boarders but also already shiny, white Adidas shorts with dark blue stripes, also sitting.

Mainly in the studio doing sports but also other kids outside in other colored shorts like blue and light green (not Adidas).

I don’t know all episodes. ACCESS Network and TVOntario 40×10 minutes.

Rating at least 8 for now. They should release this on DVD.

Comment:
Some boys and teen boys in different, tight shorts including white, black and blue. Not sure about the fabric. Probably not or not that shiny. Looks like typical Rugby clothes. Pic from s2e9.

Also older teen boys or young men in light blue, yellow, dark blue, black and white shorts in s2e20. Maybe others in shorts in other episodes?

I don’t know all episodes. Sorry, I’m running out of good movies.

Rating 4 for now only.

Also on my Western blog (rating 4).

Comment: Next to some young men or older teen boys (also shirtless), there are 2 notable scenes of boys in this 1985 commercial. First, one boy in shiny white Adidas shorts with red stripes (side and rear view when running away after focussing a sunbeam through a lens to the hairy chest of the old man) and later a boy in light green (non-Adidas) shorts.

The white shorts are not splitted at the sides, I think Handball or Volleyball shorts. I think with inner briefs. I never own that one.

There are also other Langnese commercials with young men and young women in shiny shorts, coming soon.

This is maybe the most famous German commercial ever. No movie in the theatres without it and selling ice cream after it before starting the main movie. Nice song Like Ice in the Sunshine. But as usual, rather short scenes. I found it by coincidence.

Rating 8-9.

Comment: Some Soccer playing boys in different shorts including blue, yellow and white. Probably most shorts are not or not that shiny. Maybe the white ones? Not sure about the yellow ones.

Pic from the very beginning of ep 10 part a s2e2a.

I don’t know all episodes but assume very few scenes.

Rating 3 for now only. German title: Die Kinderklinik.

Also on most my other blogs, especially my bedroom blog, boy rating 6.

Update: Koen Kampioen

koenkampioen4sh2koenkampioen4sh

After finding a girl in shortalls in the final episode 8 (other blog, rating 4), I have checked most of the other episodes. Many good scenes.

There are also boys in medium blue shorts (both team, including girls), also fewer scenes in red shorts but most in white shorts. At least the referee in black shorts. There are also spectators.

I noticed that the (white) shorts are of very thin fabric and flying in the wind.

Also other good scenes beside playing Soccer. Being massaged (feet, pic 2), tent scenes and other plots.

I still have to check it completely including the first episodes.

Previously 6, now at least 7. Many good scenes including sitting. Also soon on my pigtails blog. Main entry

Update: You Can’t Do That on Television

ycdtotv-s4e7ycdtotv-shinyn1

I found some more episodes showing shorts. Pics 1, 2+4 are from s4e7 (1983) Inequality: Kids vs. adults. Looks like a girl in pic 4 in dark blue shorts but not sure as there are also longhaired boys.

Pic 3 is from Looking Cool (season 9, 1990) looks like short, yellow Basketball shorts. Unknown if shiny. Brief views and shirts are long.

There are probably more scenes, unfortunately some episodes got deleted.

Main entry, rating 8
