Um, yes it was. Dating back to as long as I can remember during my childhood times, Hokuto no Ken, Doraemon, Sazaesan, Dragon Ball, etc. they ALL had pantie shots whether it was a 10 year old girl or whatever the fuck. However deciding whether the anime is shit or not is up to you. But I don't necessarily disagree with you on that that most modern series giving fanservice tend to suck.
