I found some more scenes of the described yellow and light grey shorts. And yesterday also orange shorts, I didn’t remember and found earlier.

Shirt labeled with “lotto”, not sure about the shorts but probably. Brand or sponsor?

Rating ~7 for this new pics. Also teen girls in shiny shorts, but I have to search for more pics.

Main entry rating 10

Comment: Several boys and girls in mainly longer shiny shorts including (modern) Adidas. Colors include red, green, dark blue, white, black and pink (girls). Also boys and girls in Basketball shorts (including yellow). Also shirtless scenes (swimwear) but few or no shiny shorts.

I only have checked it briefly.

Rating ~4. Kinderen voor Kinderen has much better shorts

Comment: Soccer boys in longer yellow and dark blue, checkered shiny shorts in s1e16. Yellow shorts maybe not or not very shiny. I can’t see any logos. Also shirtless scenes and swimshorts in earlier episodes. I think black swim shorts (from a distance on a beach) and a boy in longer, white underwear (not shiny). I think also medium blue shorts but not or not that shiny.

I don’t remember the complete series and haven’t checked the later episodes, but obviously rather few (shiny) shorts scenes.

There are better series.

I think not officially on DVD, yet (DVDr sets are available).

For now, rating 4-5 only. Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~6.

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’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.
