When I was a kid, my absolute favorite thing in the world was the Muppets. So the idea of a Muppet-style puppet coming to life to be my sidekick? Sounds cool to me. That’s the premise of Disney XD’s new combination live action/puppet show, Crash and Bernstein. Wyatt Bernstein (played by Cole Jensen) is the only male in his house and longs for a brother. After a trip to a “Build-A-Bestie” store, his creation comes to life in the form of Crash—a rude, outrageous bada**. In this world of tweens, Crash is the boy gone wild, the fun kid with no fear. He brings the chaos.

At its best, Crash is all about facing your fears and going for the tween version of gusto. And the show’s theme song is worth a look. Love the way Crash raps “Crash and burn (bern)” as Wyatt shouts, “Stein!”:
It’s all silliness and fun; those last few years before kids have to buckle down and get ready for high school. In the mean time, let’s Crash and Bernstein!
