Salute Your Shorts Music Theme Song Season 1

Theme song used during the first season

Salute Your Shorts is an American comedy television program that aired on Nickelodeon from 1991–1992 and in reruns until 1999 (though it briefly returned in June 2004 for a short time).

Based on the 1986 book Salute Your Shorts: Life at Summer Camp by Steve Slavkin, the series is set at the summer camp Camp Anawanna. It focuses on teenage campers and their problems with both the camp and with each other.

The title of the show comes from a common prank campers play on each other: a group of kids steals a boy's boxer shorts and raises them up a flagpole. Hence, when people see the boy's boxers waving like a flag, other kids would salute them as part of the prank.

The show was filmed at Griffith Park in Los Angeles.

It was cancelled after two seasons because the cast didn't want to relocate to Orlando, Florida.
