    Every episode of Young Drunk Punk from Canada has Allie MacDonald, the actress that plays Belinda McKay, the daughter of the head groundskeeper on the show, wearing SDJs from the 80s. Not AA types mind you, the actual flare leg SDJ from the time itself. She wears black, navy blue, gray, and snakeskin print SDjs at various times during the 13 episode show run. She always has boots covering her lower legs though, so if they are AA’s I can’t tell. YDP isn’t on tv anymore that I can find, but it is available on the internet for streaming.

      Thanks, Russ. I will have to add those episodes to the list. I bet there’s so much out there we may not even know about yet!

        I remember telling you about the TJ Hooker episode where they chase a prostitute up to a roof top and she jumps to another roof followed by Hooker. She was wearing black disco jeans during the scene about halfway through the show. It was titled “Blue Murder” there is another one also, but I can’t remember the name.

        There is an episode of The Golden Girls as well, where the three ladies are arrested for prostitution and taken to jail. While they are there,there is a real prostitute in the same cell wearing light blue disco jeans that talks to Betty White’s character, Rose. The scene lasts quite a few minutes and there are some good shots of her for being a background character.

        There’s two more to add to the list.

        Thanks, Russ! Those will be some great additions to the list, especially The Golden Girls one. I knew I liked that show for a reason, lol.
        I looked up that Golden Girls episode and you’re right! It does have some very good shots of the light blue pants. And that was 1986 so it was getting pretty late if not past that style already. My only beef is that once again there was that same subtle implication being made between the pants and the type of people who wore them. Also true of the TJ Hooker one.

    Keep in mind there were many girls in Disco pants on the Show Night Court,As it had prostitutes in Well, Night court.

    Haven’t seen it in awhile so I don’t know what episodes they are.

    • Spandex Disco Jeans says:

      Hey Skippy,
      You know, I’ve seen every episode of Night Court about a year or 2 ago and I don’t recall any disco pants at all. There was one episode that I remember well with a prostitute wearing shiny spandex pants, but I’m pretty sure they were just tights and not DPs. If you know for sure I would love to be corrected!
