Update: Achterbahn (1992)

achterbahn-ep44achterbahn-ep28

Some more episodes. Pic 1 showing 2 boys in ep 44. One in medium blue shiny shorts with sweatpants underneath (what is very rare in Germany), the other one in dark blue (or black) shiny shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy boxing in light blue shiny shorts in ep 28.

At least one update coming soon (white Soccer).

I also have checked some more of It (2017). The yellow shorts aren’t shiny. Damn. I have uploaded a better pic of the red ones.

Comment: Some boys in swim shorts in different episodes. Mainly most wore speedos when swimming. Pic 1, one boy in larger, medium blue shiny swim shorts also sitting (also another one in nice yellow speedos), pic 2 one in wet yellow, green, red ones. I think also episodes about Soccer at least one in white shorts. One boy boxing in light blue shiny shorts in ep 28 and boys in light and medium blue shorts (one in sweatpants underneath), both pics coming soon.

Another swimming scene in ep 68 “Flachschwimmer” unlike almost all other episodes available on DVD. At least one teen boy in dark swim shorts. PE, Basketball and locker room scenes in ep 33 “Der Andere” at least one shirtless in medium blue shiny shorts.

Good shirtless swimming scenes and handsome boys in “Der Fünfzigmarkschein” and “Nie wider Ibiza” but I think either speedos or board shorts.

Great family series about friendships. I don’t know all episodes and have some partially on VHS. I have to check for the episode names of the ones pictured and also other episodes. But I remember rather few good shiny shorts scenes.

Rating 7-8 for now. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4.

Subtitle: “Filme über Freunde heute”. Although always used, the word “heute” doesn’t belong to the subtitle to me, but it’s obviusly the announcement (“today” showing) of the actual episode as separately shown at the intro at a different frame.

Update: Der Tag, an dem Anton den Widerlan fand

widerlanwiderlan2g

I finally found my tape. In total around 2-3 minutes (interrupted). Only one PE scene, around 1 minute. First, one boy in shiny, light red shorts and later the sporty, blonde boy (last pic in the middle) in light green shorts, probably the same brand, unknown if shiny. Can anybody identify the brand? Looks like an “LO” or <O. On the sides are white patterns like a row of “><” .

One more pic of a chubby boy sitting in medium blue shorts in the main entry (only shown from a distance). There’s also a girl in pink shorts (probably not shiny) and the chubby boy in large, white shorts (non shiny, pic 4 on the left). Anton is on the right. He usually wore belted, light blue, purple checkered cotton shorts/knickers.

The sporty boy is later shown at home sitting on an exercise bike but in long, light grey cotton pants. I haven’t made a vid, just some few pics at higher res.

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: At least this young lady playing tennis in short, white shiny shorts. Also close-up and even withouth clothes playing tennis. I only noticed this very brief scene.

Not sure if anybody of my readers is interested in women. But I recently found it and so add it here as well.

Very funny movies and TV series. But I think very few and good shorts scenes.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

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.

 

Update 2: Manni, der Libero

manniderlibero-ep13

The home team including Thomas Ohrner (on left) mainly wore blue Adidas shorts with yellow stripes (and inner briefs), see other entry, but also the regular blue ones with white stripes which look much better to me. I think rather few scenes in ep 13 (pictured) and I think in ep 4 in ironed shorts (but I don’t like that).

Main entry, rating 6 (also 2 more posts including Puma shorts)

Comment: When I remember it correctly, there’s at least one PE scene with boys and maybe girls probably in shiny shorts, also sitting on benches (probably at least white and blue ones, maybe red) and one athletic boy with a treadmill at home (not sue if shorts and/or long pants). The main character is 10 yo, maybe some kids are 11 or even older.

I had to think about this series, maybe because of the announcement of The Little Ghost (2013) (Das Kleine Gespenst, bedroom blog, rating 6).

I must have one or two episodes (partly) on VHS and maybe some few digitized pics or short clips. I didn’t came across them, the recent searches and I currently don’t have the time to check again all my backups and tapes.

Pics will hopefully be added later. Nice series, unfortunately not available on DVD.

Rating 6 for now. Updte: Found. Removing tag white, adding red and green. Some few more pics at

Comment: At least this young boy in rare, larger, dark blue shorts. Not sure about the fabric, maybe not shiny (looks like if there’s a belt). Also a boy in yellow bib overalls (other blog, rating 6).

Quite interesting but rather few good scenes. Russian title: “До первой крови” English title “Until First Blood”.

I don’t remember the complete movie. I saw too late that it’s about a summer camp. Maybe more shorts, but probably more in speedos?

For shorts rating 3 for now only.
