I ain't sayin' nothin'!
―Johnny's catchphrase

Johnny Tightlips is a member of the Mafia and associate of Fat Tony.


Johnny is in his 30s. His occupation is a Mafia associate. Johnny has short black hair. Johnny wears a purple suit.

Johnny says very little, which spares him from accusations of being a "squealer", but his reticence tends to be unhelpful to himself or others. When involved in a shoot-out in Fat Tony's mansion, Johnny is shot by accident. When asked where he is injured, he says, " I ain't sayin' nothin'!", and when asked what to tell the doctor, he says, "Tell 'em to suck a lemon."

In another case doing a shoot-out against Homer Simpson, who is supported by a mysterious sniper, Tony asks Johnny if he can see the sniper. Johnny just answers that he "sees alotta things".

Behind the Laughter


Johnny Tightlips is a reference to Frank "Tight Lips" Gusenberg, who was shot down in the real-life St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago and replied "nobody shot me" while dying.

On the "Insane Clown Poppy" commentary, it is discussed that the original name for the character would be "Tightlips Johnny"


The characters last name is a reference to the Omerta (Mafia code of silence).
