Salute Your Shorts Cast: Where are they now?
Nickelodeon’s sitcom, Salute Your Shorts, became a fan favorite during its two-season run in the 90s.
From Budnick’s manipulative ploys and Donkey Lips crushing on Dina to their fun-filled camps, fans loved everything about the show.
Let’s take a look at what the cast looks like now and what they’re up to
1. Michael Ray Bower (Donkey Lips)
Bower played the pudgy character, Donkey Lips who occasionally backed-up Budnick’s maneuvers and openly crushed on Dina.
Now 43, he has appeared in flicks like ‘Dude, Where’s My Car?‘ and ‘Witchcraft‘ and has done voice-overs for games like GTA.
2. Kirk Baily (Ug Lee)

She studied at the Indiana University School of Law and presently works as an attorney in Arizona, far from the spotlight.
4. Venus DeMilo (Telly)
DeMilo, who played Afro-American tomboy, Telly, went on to act in several TV series, including ‘Smart Guy’ and ‘Strong Medicine’.
