The beginning and ending are missing, and the VHS transfer is awful, and it's broken up into eight chapters of a few minutes each, but this 1980 afterschool special starring Scott Baio is rare enough, and funny enough, to be included here in the esteemed halls of Futurechimp. And for you youngsters out there who are just starting out, the first few minutes give some helpful tips.

Bonus Baio! He's so dreamy! A reinterpretation of my favorite movie, Zapped. Starring Eddie Deezen, Heather Thomas (and her body double), Scatman Crothers and LaWanda Page. Filmed at John Marshall High School in Silverlake, which was around the corner from my old house. Also served as the location for Grease, starring Eddie Deezen.
