JumpButton has uncovered an interesting revelation from the 1997s, where there was an attempt to make a Live Action show for Crash (Could of looked like the commercials)
Anyways, here’s what Grant (Writer?) had to say about the show:
The project never happened. It was back in the 90s, at the height of the Crash phenomenon, and Universal had some sort of a relationship with Naughty Dog as I recall. Anyway, they hired me to develop a concept for taking it to series. I liked the ads at the time — with the actor in the big Crash costume — something surreal about it that I thought caught the anarchic spirit of the character, so that was the way I went: live action, not animation. No idea why the project was dropped but that was all that ever came of it.
I gotta note that this article may need some changes, if you feel that I should change few things in it, just let me know
*Note: is it now called NBCUniversal Studios
