    ...because the attractiveness of characters is all that matters. Forget depth and personality and all that.

    Isn't that pretty much the basis of any given series on television today?

    When it comes to personality, Crash seems to be a bit like Gonzo, because he appears to have a knack for being a daredevil "stunt-puppet", and maybe a bit of Animal's wild, zany antics (without the "Woman! Woman!" routine)....

    That Gonzo comparrison is interesting as every now and then the Tim Lagasse's voice seems to go into a slight Gonzo sound...and by the way...I've never wanted to see a puppet puking in a bubble...I like this show but sometimes they take puppet abuse to a new level...my wife thinks the whole concept of the show is based around what gross disgusting and strange things they can do with a puppet...

    Not my kind of television program, I had a strong dislike for it.
    I agree that his personality is similar to Gonzo's though.

    interesting blog by Noel MacNeal on the lack of Puppets on TV here...he says there really are only two shows with puppets which is Crash and Sesame Street...I do like Crash but even if you don't at least its making an effort to do something with puppets that is not geared towards the preschool set...

    I showed my mom a few episodes and she thinks Amanda, the oldest sister, looks and sounds like a young Britney Spears. Does anyone else think so?

    I enjoy watching and yes some of it doesn't really seem all that bad but that's my opinon. I like watching it and glad to see something else other then just Sesame Street with puppet charcaters.

    I suppose it's alright. Not my favorite show in the world, but I can watch it every now and then.

    Does anyone hope they do a musical episode? Tim is a great singer. Listen to him sing in these two clips: and .

    Did anyone else love the musical number in tonight's episode? It's about time they did one!

    Say what you want, but judging from the interview I put a link to, it's obvious Tim doesn't do it for the money. Paul did a panel at Dragon Con about fart jokes and boy humor, so he must have liked working on the show too. Paul's not with the show anymore though.

    I...can't stand it. I tried watching the pilot, going into the show hoping it would be good, I had liked the bumpers/commercials for it on Disney XD, but I didn't even reach the half way point. They had the potential to do something good, but instead they decided to dumb it down for today's viewing audience and, as someone else mentioned, was really trying to see what bizarre, gross-out things they could do or get away with with a puppet. And in that regard, it makes me think it's a Meet the Feebles for kids. I can't believe it's lasted this long. :o
