Storyline

After a Federal faux pas, small-time mobster John Tenuti flees West across the U.S., pursued by bumbling goons from his Jersey outfit plus his rabid ex-wife, a Fed herself (Rose Abdoo). As pompadoured Johnny Bago, he sees the USA in his Winnebago, cranks up the tune-age to remind him of dear old Hoboken, and each episode lands in a bizarre back-roads situation with locals as flaky as he is (including Elvis). Unfortunately neither Johnny nor this summer replacement series from the producers of Seabiscuit and The Polar Express, with music by Jimmy Buffett, made it to Fall. Written by David Stevens

Did anybody even bother to watch it?
18 February 1999 | by (ImpossibleToPleaseThirtySumthings) – See all my reviews

Once again there wasn't any comments about the show... Wonder why? As far as I can tell Johnny Bago was hilarious! Remember one episode with the King (You know who I'm talking about!) in it. He was all bloated but still ate all the time. Heheh! He was like a perfect gentleman at some point, and the next he was talking gibberish, mumbling, or humming some of his old songs. That specific episode was as fun as fun can possibly get!! And in gereral too the show was fun to watch.

I can't really remember what the plot was all about, but who cares about it. In fact that was probably the best thing in the whole show: You never knew what crazy things were going to happen in the episodes! Man, sometimes I just wish I could live as easy-going life as Johnny did... Just cruising around the states with an RV with no worries on my mind! [Okay, I wouldn't want to get in all that mess he usually winded up!] If you ever get the chance to see it on a re-run or whatever, I strongly recommend watching it!
