Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

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.
