In the original series from the 70s, Honey Kisaragi was created as a ReplacementGoldfish for a scientist's dead daughter, until the criminal organization (with ties to TheLegionsOfHell) "Panther Claw" kills the scientist while trying to steal his other AppliedPhlebotinum. Honey soon acquires a secret identity as an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent while fighting Panther Claw's forces, including an especially freaky set of [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] in the service of BigBad Sister Jill and her QuirkyMinibossSquad.

While later revivals and the various manga are usually full of playful FanService, the original [[BleachedUnderpants television adaptation]] was just tame and pretty enough to [[PeripheryDemographic attract an unexpected number]] of younger female fans. It was also later broadcast in France under the title "Cherry Miel" ("Cherry Honey") - albeit not until 1989. It still wasn't enough to stop the original series from getting cancelled over its then-racy content.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: A scene in the original TV series in which Honey is hanging on a cross (in an homage to Go Nagai's first popular manga series, HarenchiGakuen) and one side of Honey's torn sleeveless unitard-dress is drooping down, exposing her breast, but stopping JUST short of exposing the nipple. One of her tormentors remarks, "That's as far as the broadcasters let us go."

However, there was at least one transformation sequence in the original series in which Honey's nipples ''were'' visible, although it's very "blink and you'll miss it."



* ClothingDamage: Honey's clothes are shredded off during every transformation sequence, as with her the transformation's not just for audience benefit: the device within her that can rearrange matter is actually dismantling her clothes and reforming them, leaving her naked ''for real'' in ''real space'', as opposed to the way transformations (including magical girl naked silhouette ones) are sometimes shown or implied to not look to the outside world the way the TransformationSequence looks to the viewer. Re:Cutie Honey even had her clothes disintegrate whenever she got hungry. And there's plenty of combat-induced Clothing Damage, too.
