Comment: Here's one for your television/movie archives.
In the kids' video realm, the Power Rangers are very popular.
In the Power Rangers movie: Power Rangers in Space
(circa 1998), in the first 2 minutes and 47 seconds, the yellow Ranger (a
female) flashes her yellow panties directly into the camera. It happens
during the cafeteria scene just as the movie starts.

Cool for me, not for my three sons and other kids
watching.

Hmmm...I'd have thought the boys would have thought it was cool, too.

Well, at least it wasn't a ball game with cheerleaders.

Cheerleaders? These days you never know when *gasp* the children might watch the halftime show.

It's funny that he mentions the Power Rangers. What do most kids do after watching the Power Rangers beat monsters up for an hour and a half? They beat each other up. Not that there's anything wrong with that but I think it could be a stronger influence than a half second of yellow panties. (Or, come to think of it, a half second of half a breast in the middle of a football game.)

Recentely I've been watching reruns of the first Power Rangers episodes and noticed there was a brief half-second flash of Kimberly's [original Pink Ranger] white cotton panties in the episode where she and Tommy start going out. I doubt it was intentional, just an odd camera angle.

...Hmm. Something feels a bit dirty about this.

--------------------
Okay, just to make it clear, there is a real world out there. No really, there is. I checked.

My sister was a cheerleaders and on a dance teem. While I'm sure she did were panties under the skirt. She was also required to wear danceskins if I remembering the name corectly. There basicaly spandex bathing suit bottoms to cover everything and did a better job than the bathing suit. My sister did have a habit of running around in them while getting ready to practice or school. They were not that sexy. I'm sure a few of the female could explain better than me about them.

I CLEARLY remember that! Hell, I rewound it (HAH! that's how long ago it was--we ahad to rewind) uh, sevvveral times until Wifey explained to me that they were indeed, as BlackForge mentioned, 'modesty pants' as Wifey called them. She had a few as well for those 'can't sit down in this skirt' skirts.

I miss watching Power rangers with Boy-o, but I miss more Wifey's skirts that seem to have gone into her 'rarely worn now' section of the closet.

I did as search for "danceskin" and foundout I should have been looking for the brand name "danskin". It was over 30 years ago my sister lived at home with me and I last heard the name. Found a picture of the cheerleading shorts.

Yep, when I was a cheerleader, we called them "kickpants" so that we could do, um, kicks without flashing our knickers.

We (in the show choir world) called them bunners, or bloomers. They were a necessity for the skirts that were short enough to see your underwear while standing up and for those spinny dresses.

Sorry bout this minor hijack but...
The mentioning of cheerleaders and going commando reminded me of an article I read in Uncle John's Bathroom Reader (not sure which) about the record holder for most charges of indecent exposure. One of her more humorous achievements was rushing out onto a soccer field in a cheerleaders outfit and doing cartwheels with no panties on. She even flashed the judge during her trial for several counts of indecent exposure. I think it was a dubious achievements article or something.

Do you know where we might be able to find videos of this event? Purely for the purpose of verifying the judge made the correct decision, of course [Big Grin]

Hey, if a thread about the pink Power Ranger's butt and watching your sister and deciding whether what she is wearing is sexy isn't worth reviving, I don't know what is.

I just looked on imdb.com, and accoring to them there is no 'Power Rangers in Space' movie. It was just a series from 1998. Maybe it means one of the other movies (assuming it's legit)?
