In 1975, über-producer Aaron Spelling came up with an outrageous idea -- a TV show about three female detectives who run around without bras. Back then, women rarely had leading roles in hour-long series, and they certainly did not run around without bras. Charlie's Angels changed all that, introducing a spellbound nation to the Jiggle Show. A show that featured a whole lot of women running in slow-motion.

It kicked off a whole sub-genre of shows, like Baywatch, which combined women and Slow Motion. Some of them even had plots and stuff. Sorta.

Examples of Jiggle Show include:


  • A scene in Airplane! featured a brief gag where the plane begins shaking. A shot starts centering on a dish of jiggling jello then pans over to a woman's jiggling chest. The gag gets rehashed in the sequel.
  • Angels Revenge
