[LINKED] Cartoon Brew interviews Bill Kopp with tidbits about the cancelled Amazon Crash Bandicoot Cartoon TV Show
“From 2014 till like 2021, it was just great projects at great studios that never went anywhere ever,” Kopp told Cartoon Brew. “Some were original and some I was hired on, but by the time the last one ended I didn’t know if I want to do that anymore.”
That last one was a Crash Bandicoot series for Amazon that Kopp says would have been fantastic, and he still doesn’t know exactly why it was canned.
