Plot Summary
Professor Jonathan Jones (Tom Poston) is given an ancient coin that provides him with new abilities. Jonathan can cause pain, slow time or kill, all through the mystical coin and a special word: "Zotz." When Jonathan tries to explain the power, few believe him, and he loses ground to a competing professor (Jim Backus).
