They did eventually, but they did. It's strange, though. All the new characters (sans Pepe and Bobo) have been phased out by the old characters. How weird is that? I think that johnny could work as his own character without Sal if that was the case. it wouldn't be as funny, though. Maybe the next venue will feature him, I dunno. They really should try to fit him in third movie. or a viral or something.
