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 Running Man circa 1966 comedy style.
24 August 2000 | by yenloSee all my reviews

Buddy Overstreet witnesses or hears (can't remember which) some mob goings on and the syndicate boys begin chasing him to silence him. Each episode was about Buddy's on going attempts to elude the mob. It was a comedy and the show was short lived but had it's moments of hilarity. Where is it today? Who knows. It would be fun to see the few episodes again. Bruce Gordon who portrayed Frank Nitti on the Untouchables was cast once again as a mobster.
