    CBS (ended 1993)
    After spending five years in prison, having been set up by his mafioso cousin Vincent, John Francis Tenuti falls for another set-up by Vincent (within hours of his release), this time being framed for murder. Going on the lam, he soon acquires a Winnebago, and assumes the alias Johnny Bago. He's constantly on the run from hit men sent by the mob, as well as from his ex-wife Beverly, who is also his parole officer. And just in case you couldn't tell from that description, it's a comedy. A pretty good one, in my opinion. Every episode ends with a voice-over of Johnny reading a letter he writes to his mother. (Of course, Vincent's people always get the letter first, so Don Roselli can read it and they can track Johnny; when they're done with each letter, they put it back in Ma Tenuti's mail box.) Johnny Bago's Theme by Jimmy Buffett
    Life's too complicated, it's too complex
    Bounced from town to town like rubber checks
    Didn't know at the time
    I'd pay double for the crime
    Not to mention a serious problem with the opposite sex
    I guess that's friggin' that
    Like an anchovy to an alley-cat
    Johnny Bago's gonna have his say
    A little further down the lost highway
    You see, that's friggin' that
    Talkin' to a 'bago diplomat
    Johnny Bago's gonna have his say
    A little further down the lost highway

    Follow
    CBS (ended 2006)
    The Elvira Show was a hilarious situation comedy based on the still popular character of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. Unfortunately CBS found the comedy and innuendo too 'racy' for television and cancelled their order for a full season of The Elvira Show. Elvira and her Aunt Minerva (Katherine Helmond of "Soap" and "Who's The Boss" fame) have settled into small town Manhattan Kansas. Minerva spends her days channel surfing while Elvira makes a living as a palm reader. Life for the two 'closeted' witches with their talking cat Renfield is about to change as long lost niece of Elvira "Paige" (Phoebe Augustine of the band 'Cling') shows up on their doorstep. It jus so happens that Paige is Elvira's Niece, daughter of her late brother Elvin. Having lived in a Catholic boarding school on a remote island off the coast of main (with a bunch of nuns) Paige is a stark contrast to her aunts. Meanwhile the simple life of palm reading and channel surfing is about to go haywire as Elvira is charged with poisoning an innocent woman with a love spell concoction. A hunky stud police officer is sent in undercover to nail Elvira (pun intended). With a hilarious climactic end Elvira is saved in the nick of time by her niece who also turns out to be a witch. Unfortunately CBS burned this show at the stake before it could even cast it's spell over America. While shows like Roseanne were laden with even more suggestive comedy and innuendo CBS put The Elvira Show in it’s sights and canned the show. Not more than a few years later ABC came out with a very popular show using the same chemistry as The Elvira Show. “Sabrina The Teenaged Witch,” featured two witchly aunts and their up and coming teenage niece. They even had a talking cat!moreless

    CBS (ended 1994)
    Based on the Belgian comic strip by Andre Franquin, Marsupilami came to television as part of Disney's Raw Toonage. When that program left the air, Marsupilami gained its own half-hour series, sharing air time with other shorts Sebastian the Crab and Shnookums and Meat. Marsupilami ("Mars" to his friends) was a yellow marsupial with black spots and a twenty-five-foot prehensile tail he could use to climb, fight, swing, or any number of things. Mars was the fast talker; his gorilla friend Maurice was the strong, silent, stupid type. The two wreaked wacky havoc in the jungle, while avoiding jut-jawed, torso-heavy human Norman. Two French Canadian adaptations of the comics have been produced, in part by Marathon(Totally Spies, Martin Mystery), in 2000 and 2002. They are far closer the original series.moreless

    "Pilgrims James and Polly Winthrop have just survived their first Massachusetts winter. Now, along with their fellow settlers, they must decide whether or not to remain in the uncivilized New World and face yet another year of disease-and each other. But don't be fooled-it's Puritan fun. There's the man who dreams of building a new nation (though he can't even build a house); the bumbling village idiot; a girl so smart she may be burned at the stake; and a Grammy with an eye for strapping young men. "James, an affable young Pilgrim father, who always sees the glass as half full, wants to stay and fulfill the hopes and dreams of building a new nation, although he can't even build a house. James must also contend with his best friend, Cotton, the bumbling village idiot who wreaks more havoc than a New World winter. James' lovely, strong-minded wife, Polly, wants to stand by her man, but her patience is tried by his unwavering optimism as well as the 50 percent mortality rate. Meanwhile, their three young children -- boy-crazy Abigail, so-smart-she-may-be-burned-at-the-stake Elizabeth, and slow-witted William -- are entertained by their Grammy, a wizened senior citizen who has quite the eye for strapping young men. Even though they live in an era centuries apart from today, the issues they face have remarkable and humorous similarities to modern life." (CBS press materials) Much better than this makes it sound, Thanks had no real chance at making it on network TV in 1999: a vicious satire on American pieties and religious bigotry? The air of cheerfully goofy anachronism was quite winning, as were the scene-stealing performances by veteran Leachman and newcomer Centner. But, in August, no one was watching except me...moreless

    Set in Washington, D.C., Hearts Afire focused on the professional and personal relationship of John Hartman, the legislative assistant to aging, conservative Southern senator Strobe Smithers, and Gorgie Anne Lahti, the once globe-trotting but now out-of-work liberal journalist whom John hired as the senator's press secretary. John, the divorced father of two sons, Ben and Elliot, offered to let Georgie Anne and her "mammy," Miss Lulu, live in his home until they could find housing. There was an ulterior motive because, although they were on opposite sides of the political fence and constantly sparred about almost everything, they were physically attracted to one another. Within weeks they were having an affair. Others on the senator's staff were Billy Bob, a childhood friend of Johns, Dee Dee, the sexy but simple-minded receptionist with whom the married senator was having an affair; Mavis, Billy Bob's efficent wife; and Adam, the incompetent office assistant.moreless

    Welcome to the Project Geeker guide at TV.com. Welcome to the FABULOUS WORLD OF TOMORROW!

    Welcome to overcrowding! Pollution! Crime! Five hundred home shopping channels! Yes, you heard right. It's worse than you ever imagined. FIVE HUNDRED HOME SHOPPING CHANNELS. The human mind cannot bear such untrammeled terror.

    In the future, there are two simple rules to remember:

    NO SPITTING.

    DON'T CROSS MISTER MOLOCH.

    Mister Moloch is the CEO of Moloch Industries, the giga-corporation which owns and operates most of the Earth (not to mention the moon, mars, and most of the more upscale parts of the asteroid belt). Moloch is one small step from world domination. And that's a step he's eager to take.

    In order to achieve his goal of total conquest, Moloch initiated Project GKR (Geno-Kinetic Research). Helmed by the brilliant but unstable Doctor Maston, the aim of Project GKR was to create the perfect corporate warrior; an artificial human with fantastic powers, whom Moloch could use to crush all who opposed him.

    Project GKR succeeded beyond Moloch's wildest dreams, resulting in a synthetic man - known as "Geeker" - with complete control over his own molecular structure. Geeker had power enough to destroy the world... or conquer it, for Moloch.

    But before Geeker could receive the programming which would enable him to control his powers and make him a slave to Moloch's will, he was stolen by a streetwise thief named Lady MacBeth, who was aided by an intelligent dinosaur named Noah. Lady MacBeth and Noah thought they were stealing a device they could sell on the black market. But when they opened the canister they had stolen, instead of some new high-tech weapon, they found Geeker.

    Without his final programming, Geeker was innocent and childlike; possessing fantastic powers but largely unable to control them. Noah and Lady MacBeth - whom Geeker promptly nicknamed "Becky" - realized they had something incredibly valuable on their hands. But they also realized that neither of them were hard-hearted enough to sell a human being.

    It was clear that Moloch meant to use Geeker to destroy anyone standing between him and world conquest - probably starting with Becky and Noah. Moloch would stop at nothing to get Geeker back. Becky and Noah had no choice but to keep Moloch from capturing Geeker at all costs.

    Now Geeker, Becky and Noah are on the run from Moloch. They ought to be doomed, really, just the three of them against the awesome forces of Moloch Industries. But soon, Moloch will learn the truth of that old saying:

    THE GEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.

    CBS (ended 1993)
    Top Cops was an anthology series from Larry Jacobson and Sonny Grosso, with music provided by Domenic Troianofor CBS Broadcast International. Filmed on location in Canada, the series was one of the first to create a landmark for American shows. It proved that the cast and crew of a show could be almost 100% Canadian yet still stand up to the same standards that the American-produced shows had.
    From 1990 to 1993, Top Cops aired as one hour episodes, including anywhere from one to three vignettes per episode. Each vignette detailed a police officer or case that caught the public interest. In some cases, the show would highlight individuals who had greatly contributed to law enforcement such as Bette Clark, a police artist who was instrumental in the creation of the current computer programs used in law enforcement to help identify unknown individuals.
    * TV.com editor's note: Because the information available is from various sources (some that provide air dates but no episode summaries, and some with summaries but no air date) the editor has chosen to publish the known episodes with information about the episode and it's content, rather than publish empty episodes with proper air dates. If one day these can be correlated, then that will be done. Thank you.moreless
