Fans of the soft-core film fare on the Showtime Network in the mid-1980s frequently referred to the cable service as "Underpants Theatre." The Showtime folks were so certain of their core audience that they seldom issued synopses of their films. From what can be gathered, the German Catherine Cherie is all about a beautiful young woman (Berta Cabre) who hops from one bed to another. Well, she doesn't just hop. The Showtime listings informed viewers that Catherine Cherie wasn't rated, but contained "sexual situations."
