Big Bob Johnson And His Fantastic Speed Circus

Big Bob Johnson And His Fantastic Speed Circus was an action adventure pilot for a series that never emerged. The TV movie detailed the exploits of Big Bob Johnson, Vikki Lee Sanchez and Julie Hunsacker, three daredevil race car drivers. Johnson’s is out to win the title to an eccentric’s estate by defeating two competitors in a cross – country auto race.

With a title as good as this one Big Bob deserved to go to a series.
