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

loved this show and am happy to find there are others out there
16 October 2007 | by LittleEarthquakesSee all my reviews

I loved this show and so did my dad! We never missed an episode. I wish it should show up on DVD one day or on youtube or both. It may have been a short lived show, but it was such a good one. I wish I could still remember the theme cause I did for a few years, but have since forgotten it. As has been said before...he was on the run and had hid out in this old guys motor home...well the guy heard him called him out and slammed on the breaks when he saw him...johnny fell forward and hit his forehead on the dashboard denting the Winne part in Winnebago so when he had to come up with a last name, bago was all he saw and he chose it. The Elvid episode *was* a classic as someone else has said and I loved the Franky Five Belches guy!
