Storyline

Buddy Overstreet was an everyday, ordinary sort of guy... until the one day he overheard a member of "The Syndicate" (a crime organization) say the words "Chicken Little!" Now The Syndicate has decided Buddy knows too much and must be silenced for good. The show follows the comic misadventures of Buddy as he travels from town to town, trying to evade people who are trying to kill him. It is kind of like "The Fugitive", only played for laughs. Written by Stephen J Cobert

the power pills are from another show
16 February 2006 | by (Santa Rosa, CA) – See all my reviews

to the person who thought Buddy used power pills, I think you are recalling another show that was on CBS around the same time called Mr. Terrific. I think of both shows in the same breath as well. They had a similar look and sensibility about them. The scene I remember about this show, and I don't know why , is where Buddy ( who wasn't too smart) is working at a Coney island type snack bar. Hes being instructed on the art of selling frosty type ice cream cones.....when a little girl comes up and asks for a frosty....he goes to the frosty machine, swirls the ice cream onto the cone and hands it to girl, who says , "thank you ", and walks away......he asks the person training him how he did, and they say "great, except for one thing, you didn't get her money!"....as a kid, that struck me as funny......
