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

hey, i'll be in your fan club
14 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

yes, all you "Johnny Bago" fans, this could be the place where we unite and discuss the show that only made it a portion of a season--but it was good!!! I honestly didn't even know anyone else had ever seen the show--I loved the humor of his crazy wife chasing after him and never being able to catch him no matter how hard she tried.

Johnny was a great show because it wasn't like the typical prime time cheesy shows they have on these days, it was very original.

One day I tuned into "Johnny Bago" (was it on Thursday nights?) and he wasn't on anymore! Every time I ask someone if they've actually seen the show, they're like "Johnny who?" I'm glad I'm not the only one out there, Johnny Bago fans unite!
