They were created to convince kids to wear their seat belts, but they wound up making car crashes look freakin' awesome. They were THE INCREDIBLE CRASH DUMMIES, a group of wisecracking robots who could explode and put themselves back together again. The toys were a big hit, there was even a video game, and yet the odd pop culture legacy of THE INCREDIBLE CRASH DUMMIES probably hit its apex in 1993 with an animated special, co-written by BETTER OFF DEAD director "Savage" Steve Holland.
Did THE INCREDIBLE CRASH DUMMIES deserve to wind up in the fiery wreckage of television history, or was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they look at this truly strange one-off TV special and decide if the world would have been a better place if more episodes had been produced, and as they try to figure out how the heck the plot of THE INCREDIBLE CRASH DUMMIES makes any sense whatsoever.
