Comment: Some boys and maybe some girls in (shiny) short. Pic from the 2017 contest showing 2 boys in black and yellow shorts, both Adidas. Sitting, standing. Also a brief scene of a young boy shirtless in a pool in swim shorts.

I found this by coincidence or better hard research on YouTube. Obviusly a local contest. Not sure if broadcasted on local TV or most-likely just online.

I haven’t checked all episodes.

There are also girls in shorts, but most or all shorts aren’t shiny.

Rating even 6-7 for now.

Originally, I wanted to post “Double Dare” today. But the shorts turned out to be long jogging pants interrupted with a knee pad.

Update: Diff’rent Strokes

diffrentstrokes-s1e22diffrentstrokes-s1e22b

While updating my bib overalls blog, I found 2 more episodes with shorts.

Some teen girls in s1e22. Most shorts might not be shiny including light red, yellow, pink and medium blue. At least 2 girls in dark blue or similar shorts which are probably shiny, also sitting. And one younger girl in tight shortalls.

In s7e22 there’s a shirtless, black teen boy/young man in tight, medium blue shorts.

I don’t like any of those. The girls are quite interesting. Rating ~3-4.

Main entry, rating 3 (older teen boys)

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.

Rating: ****
Comment: Some boys in different shorts. As the setting is in 1965, most or all shorts are probably not shiny. But some appear as such. Nice light blue shorts.

I bought this DVD several years ago for my bib overalls blog but was very disappointed (rating 2). Lucas Black not appearing in overalls although shown on the cover.

Movie itself is not that bad.

Rating 3-4. I haven’t seen it for years.

Comment: At least this man shirtless in yellow 70s shorts. Not sure if shiny. Pic at 59 minutes. Is this 27 yo Nicholas Hammond? Looks even older.

I found this by coincidence and only have checked it briefly.

The man is too old. But yellow is interesting. Maybe someone like it?

So rating 2 only.

Comment: At least ~17yo Julien Crampon in 70s style yellow shorts. 8 yo Max Clavelly in red shorts also running, but maybe not shiny. Also some other funny scenes like peeing scenes.

I only have checked it briefly. But I assume few good scenes. Pics from the trailer.

Rating 3-4 for now for the shorts scenes. Movie itself probably even higher. But there are better movies. The boy is too old.

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.

Update: Fun House (1988)

funhouse-1988-ep2funhouse-1988-ep22

Some more scenes of the US Fox’s Fun House. Some interesting actions like piggyback, kneeing and wheelbarrow race. Maybe all pics from 1990.

Pic 1 from YouTube clip called FFH-02 (also with older girls), pic 2 from FFH-22, pic 3 from FFH-08, pic 4 from FFH-19.

Sorry, I’m quite busy and running out of movies.

Main entry, rating 7

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.

Please also note my previous post about GDPR and important blog issues.

Update 2: Fun House (1989)

funhouse1989-s2e5funhouse1989-s1e12

Some more pics of the 1989 UK show (although I prefer the 1988 US show and I recently paid more attention to that).

As said, the yellow shorts are lighter than in the US show which don’t appear that shiny.

Girls also wore black skirts (at least in 1997).

Pics 1+3 from s2e5, pic 2 from s1e12.

Also updated on my bib overalls blog.
