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

Classic Lunatic Comedy
4 April 2003 | by (Salisbury,Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I just had a wonderful surprise.I thought I would be the only Johnny Bago fan and find there is an entire society out there,each member of which believes that he is the only one that was crazy over Johnny and his pals. I came in, by pure chance,half way through the Big Top episode.But managed to tape the four remaining sequels.The Elvis Caper which definitely a classic(I do not throw the word around lightly) of fantastic comedy;the Marrow Madonna;Trapped in the Mineshaft(after viewing this it is difficult to ever again take this subgenre seriously);and a strip poker game in an atomic lab which is just about to explode.There are apparently six in all. Right now my collection is in storage but within six weeks it should be available and I would be happy to exchange my episodes for the pilot and a complete copy of the Big Top episode,if anyone has them. I understand how my fellow Bagoites feel.I have never personally met anyone who knew that this series existed.However,nearly everyone with whom I have shared my tapes has asked for their own copies. A public reissue is definitely in order.
