Comment: Some boys in shorts as well as some few scenes shirtless in swim shorts in the 1991 episode “Summer Camp” which is about blind kids and counselor.

Has been aired some days ago, but I missed some parts. Not as good as some other episodes (like s2e1, also at summer camp, see main entry, rating up to 7).

Justin Gocke (1978-2014, “Santa Barbara”, also on my overalls blog) as 10 yo Eric in red and other track shorts (pic 2) and a man (Tom Sullivan) in red swim shorts.

Some handsome boys, (another, unknown blonde boy even more of interest than Gocke) but most shorts are not shiny. A very good scene of a tug of war game where the kids falling down.

Another blind boy in yellow and yellow/colorful shorts. Same pair (pic 1) also used for swimming and on he water slide.

Great series, I own seasons 1-3 only.

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: At least boys in at least yellow and red shiny shorts. Not sure about girls. maybe wearing just skirts?

As announced on my bib overalls blog (rating 5, boys+girls), I found this by coincidence and don’t know all episodes. Maybe there are even better scenes?

Originally an 1988 US show but even longer broadcasted in the UK/Scotland as pictured in s1e2.

Rating 7 for now.

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.

Comment: I found this single snapshot on my old PC. Digitized in June 2004. According to the haircut and 70s style of the yellow shorts, this is probably either a late 70s or early 80s movie (or series). And maybe American? Looks like they’re going to play Baseball? Are they carrying gloves? Or bags, maybe for swimming? The left one looks more like a hat, maybe for riding? Somehow the other boys, the white hat and the striped shirt look quite modern and more European, maybe German?

Sorry, I currently can’t say anything more, yet. No broadcaster’s logo. Probably a VHS recording, aired/rebroadcasted in the early 90s (can’t be before 1988).

Rating 8-9 for now. Can anybody help?

Comment: At least Michael Pearlman in dark blue shorts (button on the rear pocket), pic from s1e2 and also a lady in medium blue shorts in s1e10. Maybe more in later episodes? Also shirtless scenes but none known in shorts.

A suggestion for my bib overalls blog (also Michael Pearlman and a teen girl, coming very soon, rating ~5).

Not bad. I assume very few scenes. Needs to be rechecked.

Rating 5-6 for now.

Update:  found an old, fat lady in oversized yellow shiny shorts in s3e23. Many episodes are missing (or blocked in my country) on YouTube. But I don’t assume much more scenes. Also the young lady in the blue shorts sitting in s1e7.

Comment: Several boys in yellow sports shorts. Yellow and white shirts. Also boys and girls in sailor suits/dresses.

Thanks very much for this suggestion! How could I forgot it? I even have an entry for more than 1 year on my sailor suit blog (rating 5).

I’m not sure, if these shorts are really shiny. To me, they more look like cotton.

English title: “All for Love” and “Stubborn Love”. Original title: “Да обичаш на инат”. Directed by Nikolai Volev, novel by Chavdar Shinov (Čavdar Šinov). Obviously a typical family drama about a 14 yo boy.

Rating 5 for now.

Update: Respiro (2002)

respiro6respiro5

I still hadn’t the time to check the complete DVD at slow speed, but checked many scenes including the making-of.

There’s also 12 yo Filippo Pucillo as younger brother of Pasquale in shiny white (or cream) and also yellow shorts. Scene at 45 minutes.

In the fighting scene at 36 minutes there is also at least one younger boy in green shiny shorts (with a white stripe) and as announced one or two in beige shorts. One with a red stripe and leg boarders. The light blue one with a dark blue stripe and also Filippo’s and maybe the light grey and dark blue ones are maybe the same brand. Also one or two in black. Some shorts are not shiny including light red and  jeans shorts. Many shorts of the older teen boys are longer (dark blue, black, yellow) than those of the younger boys.

Main entry, still rating 9 at

Comment: One young boy also sitting in yellow shorts at 11 minutes and a young lady running in dark blue shorts at 15 minutes (also sitting on the grass but from a distance). Both scenes are very short. And unknown if shorts are really shiny.

Has been aired yesterday.

Funny movie but very few shorts scenes.

Rating 3-4 only.

Comment: Several, mainly teen boys including Francesco Casisa (pics 1+2) and men in shorts, mainly shirtless. Also other interesting scenes and clothes including speedos, underwear and even less.

How on Earth could I forgot this masterpiece? I even own it on DVD for several years. Perfect movie, rating 10. For shorts rating 9-10 for now. I have to recheck the complete movie at slow speed, including the long making of, for more perfect scenes and all colors.

Most notable, of cource, main character Pasquale. Half of the time in shorts, most often in the light blue ones (a bit ripped at the side), and most often shirtless. Also in light red and dark blue shorts but not or not that shiny.

Shirtless in light blue shorts also sitting at the beginning. Oversized yellow shorts later. Pics 3+4 showing a fighting scene at 36 minutes with many (older) teen boys. Very interesting are the medium blue shorts. (Almost) 70s style. Many teen boys and men also shirtless in shorts at the end but mainly from a distance. One younger boy in beige or yellow shorts (coming soon) and some more in white, yellow and blue ones.

Even better are the (wet) speedo and underwear scenes. Undressing the shorts for swimming in the sea (light blue speedo or underwear/briefs underneath). But this blog is about shiny shorts.

Also on my bedroom blog (rating 6).

As said rating 9-10 for now. I prefer Adidas, 70s and 80s setting and younger actors.

Update: also 12 yo Filippo in white and yellow shorts. Also green, beige and black ones in he fighting scene.
