Crash Canyon is a Canadian animated series. It tells the story of the community living at the bottom of a canyon. The Wendell family is looking for an original holiday by caravan but their trip ends sooner than expected at the bottom of a canyon in Alberta, Canada. The canyon walls are too high to climb and there is no way out.[1] Soon they find out there is a whole community of 29 or 30 survivors from previous crashes down there. Dollars are not accepted and they use golf tees as a currency.[2]


Crash Canyon launched on September 18, 2011.[3] Joel Cohen, a Canadian expatriate living in Los Angeles while writing for The Simpsons, said that creating an animated Canadian show with fellow expatriates would allow to write "jokes only hosers would get".[4] He recruited ex-Canadian writers Tim Long of The Simpsons and Chuck Tatham of How I Met Your Mother to write scripts for the series.[4] Co-producer and story editor Greg Lawrence said that they have tried not to put too much emphasis on the family trying to escape the canyon.[4] "It’s not Gilligan's Island where every episode is: ‘This week we’re getting off the island.’ But we do keep the sentiment alive, so as you move through the series there are attempts to get out and all fail."[4]

Crash Canyon premiered on Teletoon in Canada and is distributed globally by MTV.[4] Teletoon released a press statement to Bubbleblabber saying that the network will not be moving forward with a third season of the series,"Unfortunately a third season of Crash Canyon is not in our plans at this time." [5] The show ended on March 3, 2013.[6]




Note: The entire hillbilly family speaks grammatical false English, and writes letters in false direction. Also, everyone of them is very dimwitted, bordering mental retardation.
