Editor’s Note: In Playmate Flashback, we look back at classic moments in the fifty-year-history of the Playboy Playmate.
In TV history, few shows have had as much of a cultural impact with their opening credits as Baywatch. The sun-soaked montage that kicked off each episode of Baywatch became a pop culture phenomenon in the 1990′s. Maybe we’re biased, but we attribute the show’s success largely to cast members Miss February 1990 (and current January 2011 cover model) Pamela Anderson, who joined the show in 1992, and original cast member Miss July 1989 Erika Eleniak.
Take a time warp back to the sun, sand and sexy red one-piece swimsuits of the Baywatch opening credits, and see if you agree.
