Update: The Love Boat (1977)

loveboat-s1e3

I have briefly rechecked this episode (s1e3) and uploaded a better, complete pic of this one, 16 yo Scott Baio shirtless in wet, white shiny shorts with 3 red stripes (not sure if these are Adidas).  Also showing Kristy McNichol in white shorts but probably not shiny.

I have briefly checked some episodes of season 1 , but haven’t found any other scenes of interest.

Also recently 2 episodes on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl, rating up to 3).

Main entry here, rating 9 (maybe now a bit lower) at

Update: Dallas (1978)

dallas-s10e3dallas-s9e27s

I have briefly checked several episodes, mainly of seasons 8-12 (and I own seasons 13+14). I found some few more pool scenes of younger Christopher and John Ross. junior and others.

Pic 1 showing Christopher shirtless in brown/colorful or similar wet swim shorts (not shiny) in s10e3 (sitting and also walking rear view, distance). Pic 2 probably John Ross jun. in s9e27 I think in shiny swim shorts (white and black ?). Underwater scenes, also over water but few and brief scenes and distance.

Christopher also in bathing trunks, light blue or similar in s10e5, John Ross jun. in red speedos in s8e2 and a toddler (Eric Farlow as Christopher ??) in dark blue shiny shorts sitting in s8e2. There are probably more swimming scenes (of others, mainly men) in earlier episodes, but I don’t have the time to check all episodes.

Much better, of course, is older Omri Katz in purple shorts (rating 10, TOP#1)

Comment: At least Armie Hammer in white Adidas shorts with red stripes and inner briefs, including sitting scenes. Also mainly shirtless in other shorts and swim shorts like medium red or similar (wet, 1 black stripe), yellow, medium green, but most or all other shorts are not shiny. The younger boy, ~21 yo Timothée Chalamet as 17 yo Elio also in (colorful) shorts but I think none are shiny.

Thanks for this suggestion. But I don’t like (hairy) men in shorts. Nothing special, like for my other blogs like men in overalls or Cowboys or sailors. And this is not a blog just for Adidas.

And this white ones don’t appear shiny. More of interest are the medium red, sometimes pink appearing wet shorts. But I only have seen pics on IMDb of those.

Maybe an interesting movie and gay plot (80s setting), but I don’t like at all these actors.

Rating ~2 for now only.

Comment: Several boys and girls in 70s shorts. Most shorts of the boys aren’t shiny like jeans shorts and bermudas. One blonde boy, I think Robbie Rist in white Adidas shorts or pants (and) white 70s shorts. At least 2 girls in light blue shorts. Other girls in white, light red, yellow and tight dark blue shorts. Some shorts maybe not shiny.

I found this by coincidence and like these ABC and CBS Afterschool movies (rating 10, TOP#3 on my bib overalls blog). Some few other entries here, rating up to 6.

Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~4-5.

For shorts rating ~6. Nice camp plot including tents and canoes. Unfortunately few boys in shiny shorts.

Comment: Some few young men/older teen boys shirtless in different shorts (maybe not all are shiny) including dark green (also sitting) and white Adidas  (white with red stripes). Also 70s style shorts including white and light blue. Pics 1, 3+4 from the beginning. One young lady in yellow 70s style shorts (scene at ~18 minutes). Definitely also cotton and ripped off shorts at least white and jeans.

I only have checked this briefly.

Typical movie of it’s kind. Few good scenes, mainly at the beginning. Probably no younger actors.

So rating 3-4 for now only. I think not officially on DVD.

Comment: A recent suggestion (both YouTube links are now dead). Several celebrities (males and females) and others in the background in shiny shorts including 70s style and also Adidas. Many different colors, probably all available.

I don’t know all episodes. There are few clips online and most in poor image quality.

I haven’t found notable younger kids or teens.

Pic 1 from May 4th 1980, pic 2 from Dec 4th 1988 cycling in light blue shorts, pic 3 from 1978 (Robin Williams episode), blue 70s style is a woman. Pic 4 from 1979. I also found pics on IMDb with yellow Adidas (man in 1976). Heather Thomas and William Shatner in 1982 in light grey shorts.

Rating 3-4 for now. Maybe I miss some good scenes.

Comment: I noticed 2 boys shirtless at a beach in shiny (?) shorts. One in white and another one in red. Red shorts unpictured, red pictures are trunks. Also other boys in speedos and trunks.

Not sure about the time setting. Could be the 1950s, but at least the white shorts appear shiny and 70s style.

1955 novel by William Mayne. I assume very few shorts scenes. The plot is about a boys’ choir.

Also soon on my bedroom blog (bunk beds, rating ~7).

For shorts, rating 4 only. I think not officially on DVD.

Comment: Young Soccer boys outside at a coast. One team in mostly tight, white Adidas Junior shorts with dark blue stripes, the other team in plain white shorts.

Also boys in bib overalls (other blog, rating 3).

By coincidence I found this scenes. Probably a rather short scene (song “La pelota loca” by Teresa Rabal). I don’t know the complete movie but most of it and don’t assume (much) more shorts scenes.

As the boys are very young, rating 3-4 only.

Comment: Boys and girls in different kind of sports in shiny shorts, mainly Adidas.

Searching for a different movie of this band, I found some short clips on YouTube by coincidence.

Pic 1 showing 2 girls in shiny white Adidas shorts with matching shirts (big logo). Boys in red and white Adidas shorts, also blue shorts (unknown if Adidas). One chubby boy playing Tennis in white Adidas shorts. Other sports like PE and swimming. Swimming unknown if just speedos.

Needs to be rechecked as I don’t know the complete movie. Also other movies of them. One clip has slow-mo scenes. Movie is part 5 of 7 in this movie series. DVD might be OOP.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Comment: Mainly some shirtless men or older teen boys and also women in different shorts and swimwear on a beach. Hundreds of supporting actors, I think younger boys as well (like in medium blue at 16 minutes). But most very briefly or from a distance.

Shorts in almost all colors, at least black, white, medium blue, light yellow (f,m), dark green (m) and red (f, m ?), I think also purple (woman) and grey or similar. Some shorts are not shiny but most. Scene pictured at 10 and 40 minutes. Best scenes at around 16 (and 10) minutes. Also women undressing her shorts (white, bikini underneath). Wet scenes in the sea. I think Adidas (f,m) at 10.

I’ve checked it some time ago and don’t remember much. Needs to be rechecked more carefully at slow speed.

Typical movie. I assume few (good) scenes. 2 longer scenes on the beach. Later a pool scene but probably not of interest.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

I’ve added the tab “Brands” on top after finder a new Danish brand in Gummi-Tarzan.
