Update: The Adventures of Skippy

adventuresofskippythebushkangarooadventuresofskippy-yel

I searched for hours but couldn’t identify any of the logos. Is there any good website of logos? The series was filmed in Queensland. Maybe these are local teams, kids teams, school logos, sponsor logos or even fictional teams. This episode is about one team called “Roos”. I only found Socceroos, but I think they have a different logo.

Pic 1 is my favourite. On the shirts, a team logo of a complete black horse (stallion, stud, colt) looking to the left. I couldn’t find anything like this (Australian).

On the shorts a logo like a “c”. Also not sure about that. The closest Australian brand, I found is “Classic Sportswear” with a kangaroo inside the c. Or is it Gatorade as sponsor. Or a “Q” for Queensland. I also found a logo with a ball inside a c. A similar logo is “Champion” (USA). One shirt of a spectator has “Colometa”, maybe a sponsor? Update: Compared to other pics, I beliefe that the c is in fact a Q with a ball inside. But still can’t identify the brand.

2 new pics. Pic 2 showing a logo with a ball on top of a wave. Wave with 3 stripes. Pic 3  a different logo. Maybe a fish or dolphin? Sorry, no better pics. Any help is appreciated. Main entry, rating 9

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: Some Soccer boys and teen boys in many different colored shorts including yellow, white, red, blue and black.

I think few and brief scenes only. Novel by Gina Basso. I think not on DVD.

I’m still searching for my Italian coming of age movie.

Rating 4-5 for this one.

Comment: I think Eric Foster shirtless but dry in light yellow swim shorts. All or most others of the swim team in speedos. One teen boy wet in tight, white swim shorts or briefs.

I only have checked this briefly and assume very few good scenes. But the movie is obviously very interesting. Handsome boy.

So rating 6-7 for now. Needs to be rechecked completely at slow speed. I hope for a soon broadcasting.

Comment: Some older “teens” or more likely young men and women in different, mainly 70s style shiny shorts including yellow, white, black, turqouise, medium and dark blue. Also sitting scenes (yellow shirtless) and also at least 2 men with sweatpants underneath (lying on the floor).

I found this by coincidence but haven’t seen the complete movie.

Typical movie of it’s time. Teens are quite old. Mainly 20s and 30s. Starring 33 yo Mauro Di Franceso and 19 yo Isabella Ferrari.

Rating 2-3 only.

Comment: Some young Soccer boys and girls (1st graders?) in yellow and white shorts. At least one with the drawstring outside. I think few and rather brief scenes at 1h10.

Also soon on my bib overalls blog (girls rating 4).

I like Tim Allen and Home Improvement (rating 7), but I don’t like this movie.

Very young kids and few scenes, but better than none as this is a Christmas movie.

So rating 4-5 only. I don’t assume shorts scenes in the sequels.

Unknown 13 = Stuttgarter Hymnus-Chorknaben 1987 documentary

stuttgarterhymnsochroknabenstuttgarterhymnsochroknaben3

Finally found! It’s a 1987 documentary about a boys’ choir in Stuttgart, obviously the Stuttgarter Hymnus-Chorknaben. Aired/produced in 1987 on SDR (Süddeutscher Rundfunk) but must have been aired/rebroadcasted later, maybe late 80s or early 90s. I haven’t found the original tape. Produced by Hans-Peter Birke, editor Peter Konzelmann.

A rather short Soccer scene. Also white and/or beige shiny shorts like the yellow ones. Also dark blue Adidas shorts, but probably of cotton fabric. Also blue, red and other colors. No other scenes of interest, at least not on my clip.

I don’t have the beginning, so not sure about the correct title.

Comment:
Some boys shirtless and wet in swim shorts including orange, red, yellow, black and blue ones. Boy in orange also on a water slide. Others in the water. I think rather few scenes and often in the background. Are the black shorts Adidas?

Also grown-ups in swimwear. Some in jeans shorts. One man in colorful swim shorts I think party beige (pic 1 next to the parasol).

During rechecking the other Boggy Creek movies (rating up to 7 on my bib overalls blog), I also found this one. Alternate title: Boggy Creek II: And the Legend Continues. Very low rating on IMDb (2.3, bottom #81).

I have to recheck it at slow speed on a big screen. The shorts are probably very good, but for the brief scenes I currently give rating 5-6 only.

Comment:
Many school kids in different shorts of different colors, including yellow, red and dark blue, not sure about the fabric. Probably cotton in the 60s and 70s (I think partly b&w anyway). And probably also shiny shorts at least in the (late 80s) and 90s (including black, light green and white but longer, modern shorts).

I’m not East German, so I haven’t seen this series then. And I only have seen some few clips online. Pic 1 clip titled/from  22.08.1982. Pic 2 from an unknown date, maybe later.

Rating at least 5 for now.

Update 2: Kidsongs

kidsongs-footloosekidsongs-footloose2

Last night, I remembered The Cedarmont Kids and especially the song “She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain” (overalls blog, rating 8), and so, I’ve checked if there are other clips. And I found a version from Kidsongs. And later some more clips of them. Updates on my other blog also coming soon.

Pictured is the song “Footloose” (1987). I have checked almost all Kidsongs vid, and I wonder, how I could miss this and others.

At least a girl and boy in light blue shiny Adidas shorts. Also Basketball playing boys and girls in green and yellow shorts. Very good, although some kids are very young.
