Barney uses his newly acquired talent to gain control over bullies, win baseball games, roulette, and of course, to win the affections of beautiful girls--including gorgeous Jane Mitchell!

Movie Trivia:
  • According to the press kit, on the first take of the sweater popping scene, Heather Thomas was pulled to the ground.
  • The movie poster artist was Michael Backus. He was paid $5,000. The artist's signature appears on the "Zapped!" poster as (1) An 'MJB' monogram on Scott Baio's pink polo shirt (2) a 'Backus' signature on the Gilbert Stewart George Washington portrait and (3) 'Backus' on the ruler flying through the air. It was his first commercial assignment and it launched Backus Studios.
  • The movie ad received complaints from Los Angeles Times readers, not because of what the readers could see but because the illustrated boy characters could see up the skirt of the illustrated girl character. A modified movie ad was run in the Los Angeles Times with the illustrated girl's character's modesty protected by a lower skirt from the illustrated boy characters.
