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: At least one boy in longer red shorts, maybe shiny shorts. And another one on sitting in yellow, looks like shiny shorts. Also swiming in tighty whiteys and cycling scenes. Set in 1989.

I recently have updated the 1990 movie on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl rating 5).

So I found trailers and teasers of this remake.

Of course, I can’t say much more yet. Probably not as good as the original movie (at least not the actors) but at least interesting shorts.

Rating maybe 6-7 for now, maybe even higher (4 before I noticed the yellow shorts). But they also wore other clothes. Also a girl in shortalls, soon on my bib overalls blog.

As the title “It” might be hard to find later, I have to add Stephen King.

Langnese (1983 commercial)

Comment: As announced, this earlier Langnese commercial. First, some older teen boys, maybe playing Basketball in different shorts, including dark blue, red and yellow.

A young lady cycling in tight shiny dark blue shorts (rear view) and at least some men jogging in 70s style red shorts. Maybe some more persons?

Probably most straight guys like the cycling lady. Not bad, but also very brief scene. The other boys or young men are less of interest.

The 1985 commercial (rating 8) is much better, including the song.

Rating 4 for this one. There are some more Lagnese, also later commercials, but I haven’t checked those.

Update: Unknown 11 – Australian movie or series

unknown11cunknown11d

I found these 2 pics, which are obviously from the same series (or movie). Also titled Australian 1990. Note, the same garden door. I still haven’t found any clips.

Maybe this was just aired in 1990 in Germany. Looks more like an early 1980s series according to the old cars. Also rare, the boy has crossed chains on his chest.

Somehow the blonde boy looks familiar. It must be much easier now, to find this one.

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: 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

Today, another episode of Koen Kampioen.

Comment: Some older teen boys and teen girls at PE in medium blue shorts (one climbing up a rope with longer underwear underneath). Also teen boys in red and yellow shorts, I think playing Basketball.

There are better movies. Actors are quite old.

And I think rather few good scenes. Filmed in 1987. Part 1 in Germany was Slaughter High.

So, rating 4 for now only.

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.
