Crash & Bernstein was an American live action television comedy series with puppetry which premiered on October 8, 2012 and ended on August 11, 2014 on Disney XD.[1] Created by Eric Friedman, the series centered on a boy with three sisters who wishes to have a brother. His wishes come true when a puppet named Crash comes to life. Production for the series began in May 2012.[2]

Disney XD renewed the series for a second season on April 15, 2013,[3] which premiered on October 7, 2013.[4]

Sesame Street and Muppets performer Tim Lagasse stars as the voice and puppeteer for Crash. Greg Ballora works as the puppet captain.[2]


Wyatt Bernstein is a boy who lives with his mom Mel and his sisters Cleo, Jasmine and Amanda in the town of Portland, Oregon (the location was revealed in the theme song). For his 12th birthday, Wyatt is taken to a Build-A-Bestie store where he creates a puppet he names Crash, who comes to life as the brother he always wanted. Crash and Wyatt must deal with the sisters, while having their brotherly differences and still watching each other's back.

Starting in July 2013 on online, viewers can vote for their favorite nose for Crash. The winning nose will be revealed during the second season's premiere.[6] In conjunction with the second season's premiere, the website will also launch "Crash & Bernstein: Cluck n' Chuck," an interactive game where fans play as Crash and Wyatt and take on the neighborhood. The game will be playable on both computer and mobile devices.[4]


Emily Ashby of Common Sense Media, which informs parents about media choices for their children, gave Crash & Bernstein a three star rating out of five, stating, "This is one of those case-by-case shows that needs you to be mindful of your child's response to what he or she sees on TV". She added, "Since much of the show's laughs result from the characters' misbehavior, it's important that viewers understand the difference between fantasy and reality. If your son and his brother decide to remedy a lack of space in their bedroom by knocking down a wall, that will have more serious consequences than what they see Wyatt and Crash suffer from the same action. If your kids do watch, be sure you talk about how the characters' actions would be received in the real world instead of the TV universe."[7]
