Great 1970's tv movie. Bit silly but real fun.
20 July 2003 | by (Sheffield, England) – See all my reviews

A young boy has his faviorate t-shirt accidently electricuted giving him special super powers when he wears it. It helps him overcome bullies and win some running races, but when the t-shirt loses its power he has to belive in himself to win the final important race. Very silly and dated but great fun. A little predictable and very simialr to Teen Wolf 1 and 2 however i watched this film when i was very young because of the tiltle but it soon became one of my faviorates. I wish i could see it again but the chances of that seem very slim now. post me if anyone see's it.
