Pop culture and trivia

  • In 1964, at the height of his popularity, Smokey Bear, mascot of the U.S. Forest
    Service, received so much fan mail that he was assigned his own ZIP code, 20252.
  • Black Rock City, NV, a city formed entirely by the presence of the Burning Man Festival
    for about two weeks each summer, has been issued its own ZIP code: 89412
  • ZIP code 12345 belongs to the world headquarters for General Electric in Schenectady,
    New York. Each year, the facility receives many letters from children to Santa Claus,
    addressed to "North Pole 12345".
  • Game-show viewers of the 1960s–1980s became familiar with announcer spots for the

  • In a popular episode of the 1960s TV series Batman, the villain Chandell mentioned
    being located in ZIP code 9999979. Although the producers knew this could not be
    an actual ZIP code, it is likely that this was used as an attempt to bring more attention
    to ZIP codes as part of mailing addresses.
  • In the movie based on the Green Acres television series, Hooterville's ZIP code was
    given by Mr. Drucker as "40516 and a half". 40516 is in Lexington, Kentucky.

    Consumer Information Catalog have become famous for its ZIP code in Pueblo, Colorado,
    81009 (which is assigned uniquely to the Center).
  • Newton Falls, Ohio, has the ZIP code 44444. During the 1970s, signs at the municipal
    boundaries proclaimed "Newton Falls has zip!" The slogan is now in use on a Web site,
    44444.com.
  • ZIP codes can take on a certain amount of cachet or become bywords: 90210, in Beverly
    Hills, California, probably the most famous example, appears in the titles of two
    Beverly Hills–centered television shows: Beverly Hills 90210 and Dr. 90210.
  • On Seinfeld, Newman, a USPS employee, tells his girlfriend "I'll tell you a little
    secret about ZIP codes. They're meaningless!"
  • The PBS children's series ZOOM made frequent musical use of 02134, the ZIP code of
    WGBH, the show's originating station in Boston, Massachusetts.
  • In the "The Day the Violence Died" episode of The Simpsons, the formerly bankrupt
    Meyers Studios (creators of the Itchy & Scratchy show) are revived after the owner
    of the defunct studio successfully sues the U.S. Postal Service for copyright infringement
    on a character that resembles Mr. ZIP, aptly named Manic Mailman.
  • In another Simpsons episode, "Sunday, Cruddy Sunday," Lisa Simpson asks a postal
    employee, during a class trip to the post office, what the purpose of the ZIP + 4
    code is. Little does she know that she is being monitored by authorities who suspect
    she has discovered that the code has no importance; the tour guide, Postmaster Bill,
    mentions under his breath that they are "citizen-relocation codes" and "hopefully
    we'll never need them".

    ZIP code, 97526.
  • ZIP code 10048 was assigned to the World Trade Center complex in New York, New York
