Forgotten teen idols

Back in the day many teen idols had their day, were done, and were never to be seen again. Others did make comebacks, or go into related lines of work and remain partly in the spotlight. Today, many more teen idols who some predicted would be flashes in the pan just go on and on to greater fame and riches (Justin Bieber). Who do you remember? (Any decade.)

Yes - Halpern, Right. He was probably my first TV crush as a kid but I was so unaware I‘m not even sure i admitted that to myself. I also liked Vince Van Patten (Apple’s Way) - especially on the 2nd season after he’d aged a bit into a typical teen heart throb of around 16 or whatever,

Hudson Brothers also on that cover. “Should you act older for them?’ The dilemma of young girls crushing on grown men! Haha.

R6 That is something I have always thought about. When I was in school I remember thinking, “If I was on TV all these girls [in the school] would suddenly have crushes on me and I would be popular.” It made no real sense and yet I knew it was true. I wished I lived in California so I could get on TV and become one of these average kids who suddenly is seen as a god because he’s on a show.

1970s teen idols were dorks who happened to be on TV.

It wasn't until the 80s that they started actually getting cute (think the casts of The Outsiders and Weird Science). Even then, some real honkers were being promoted. New Kids on the Block was made up of five of the ugliest goblins I have ever seen.

Ha, I just remembered my friend's little sister had some Teen Bop or some magazine in the 80's with unattractive, ginger, Scott Grimes as part of a contest. You could win a phone call from him. The story about it was something like, "the phone rings, and your brother tells you it's Scott. But you don't know anyone named Scott...except..Scott Grimes!" Yeah, that's where my mind would go. I wouldn't assume my dick brother was messing with me or that there was maybe a kid named Scott I didn't know. That was such a ridiculous contest, I'll never forget.

Bobby Sherman - whore.

[quote]Fifteen-year-old Jill Haworth (later the original stage Sally Bowles in Cabaret) was his romantic interest in Exodus. They began an intense affair. Late in 1962, she introduced Mineo to 19-year-old pop singer Bobby Sherman. Two years later, she found them in bed. Mineo would claim that before Sherman, he didn't know what two men did together sexually, and asked his gay hairdresser for details. The hairdresser showed him. Devastated, Haworth ended their relationship, although eventually they became friends. Mineo insisted he was bisexual. Most of his relationships, however, were with younger males.

I probably read them between the ages of 9-12, which was the late '70s to very early '80s. I'm not sure anyone thought it odd. If they did, I didn't, so I don't know that I would have noticed strange looks. I used to buy them at the local convenience store or drug store, and sometimes if I was with my mom at the grocery store.

We were a big magazine family back then, and I grew up being a voracious magazine reader. So maybe this was just seen as one more publication. We had People, Us, Rona Barrett, Nat'l Enquirer, Star, etc.

And then I hit 13 and was all about Rolling Stone, Creem, Circus, then Premiere.

R139, please post a picture of what you consider to be a cute teen idol.

Hell, even this quartet of immature dipshits is objectively better-looking than the parade of fuggos pre-1985,

R151, the dude standing next to him in your pic wasn't half bad either.

I think people had higher standards in the 80s, despite the fucked-up hair.

R115=Rex Smith. That man had an ego the size of Rerun's ass

R141 Yours must have been really something to have produced someone like you.

Greg Evigan was my dream date.

R154 oh trust me they’re extraordinary just like me.

R151, IIRC, they were something of an item back then.

It would be so sweet to be the filling of a Robert Downey Jr./Robert Russler sandwich.

R143, while your choices are certainly handsome, none of them can be considered forgotten.

R157, they look to be in that photo

Fabian may have been a teen idol at one time, but he was a fine looking man when he straddled that motorcycle. F_I_N_E.

R159, true. But 142 asked me for pictures of what I thought cute teen idols were. Not the forgotten ones, although I dare say there were a few.

R158 I thought you were going to say the filling in Robert Downey, Jr's tooth.

R159 Oh, what the hell, at this point. Just post whatever you want about whatever teen idols you want.

I forgot that Bobby Rydell died last year just 3 weeks before his 80th birthday. Does that count, R164?
