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

This is Buddy Overstreet. He's wanted by the head of the most powerful crime syndicate in the country. In a steam room, Buddy overheard their vital secrets and the mysterious words, Chicken Little. Now, he knows too much. These are the orders given to all members of the syndicate from one end of the country to the other.
Get him, get him, get him!

My memory of this show was that it was a vignette within another; i.e. it was a very short format that was used something like an intermission within another show.
But I do remember some of the words to the theme tune --went something like "Run Buddy Run" (what a whiz I am ;)and the Turkish bath scene does ring a bell--thanks for the memory-jog.
I must have got this idea from another show--does anyone remember what that might be? and keeping in mind I was only 6 at the time and watching in London, England it may well have been sandwiched between two episodes of the same show--which may well have been Get Smart.
