Crash Canyon is a [[CanadaEh Canadian]] animated show aimed at adults that debuted on Teletoon September 2011. The show is about the Wendells, a dysfuntional family who, after an uneventful beginning to their vacation, end up plummeting into a two-mile deep canyon. After coming out alive and unscathed, they realize they are not alone as the canyon is full of a small community of strange and quirky people who all have suffered the exact same fate. With little hope of escape, the Wendells decide to make the best of their new home... and maybe create the occasional escape plan here and there.

!!Provides Examples Of:

* AbusiveParents: Played for laughs with Pristine Manderbelt, who is the unfavorite in her family.
* AllAsiansKnowMartialArts: Invoked by Jake when Brianna starts bullying the boys. He gets Hoshi to teach him karate. Whether he actually knew any martial arts, or just used Jake for free labour is never really elaborated, especially as Brianna still beats him up.
* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Alberta (where the show is taking place) is mountainous in some parts, but still lacking in absurdly deep canyons, especially ones far larger than the Grand Canyon. It is also completely PlayedForLaughs.
* BlackComedyRape: Sheila admits in episode 4 that she was touched by a clergyman... although it turns out they were just playing tag.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Roxy.
* BumblingDad: Norm. He's by no means stupid like [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter Griffin]] or [[Franchise/TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]], but he has no idea how to relate to his children and has very little social skills.
* CampGay: Stéphanel.
--> Sheila: Is he your boyfriend?
--> Angel: Oh, no. Stefan prefers his women to have a penis.
* CanadaEh
* DecoyProtagonist: The first season sets Norm up to be the primary focus. Later episodes shift the focus to Jake.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Sid's wife and kids are stereotypical hillbillies who always go barefoot.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: They are never getting out of the canyon.
* FatAndProud: Vernon, who will chew you out if you suggest that being fat is bad for his health... despite the fact that he had an ''onscreen heart attack PlayedForLaughs''.
* FatBastard: Vernon.
* {{Flat Character}}s
* FollowTheLeader: The style of this show (right down to the animation) is quite similar to a Creator/SethMacFarlane cartoon, albeit slightly less raunchy. Funny to think about, as this show was launched by a former ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' writer and a show that is sometimes viewed as a knock-off is ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
** Also that of GilligansIsland (Premise of a bunch of characters trapped, spend most episodes with hairbrained schemes to get out which some "almost" work, but foiled usually by a very unlucky/inconvenient circumstance.)
* GenreBlindness: In his cold open trying to build a lemming powered escape mechanism, Norm fails to notice the obvious Wile E. Coyote style dooming him to fail.
* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Sheila and Norm.
* GoshHornet: In "Sid Our Hero," Roxy gets attacked and stung by a swarm of bees.
* {{Goth}}: Roxy looks like one.
* HartmanHips: Sheila.
* HollywoodNerd: Norm.
* LimitedWardrobe: Justified, since they're in a canyon. Lampshaded in "Hex Marks the Spot".
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Sheila views Third Cousin Vernon as a disgusting nuisance, and he isn't exactly popular with anyone else in the canyon although he doesn't seem to care. Then there's Pristine Manderbelt, who is the unfavorite in her family and viewed as "hideous" by them.
* MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels: When Sid gulps down the century old [[AllNaturalSnakeOil brain tonic / axel lubricant]], he learns to speak French in this manner. Viewers who speak French will be delighted by Sid's statements of "requiring a hat at the library" and the like.
* OedipusComplex: Inverted. Beverly Manderbelt has a not-so-subtle crush on her own teenage son, and bitterly snipes at her husband.
* ParentalIncest: Beverly Manderbelt has a not-so-subtle crush on her eldest son. She even bathes him. [[{{Squick}} Uggghh]]...
* ReducedToRatburgers: The restaurant owner will put on the menu any vermin she can catch. It makes sense as this is the only meat they'll get (short of a cattle truck crashing in) and no customer seem to complain, so presumably she can cook them up decently.
* RichBitch: Beverly Manderbelt.
* StatusQuoIsGod
* TheMagicPokerEquation: Averted when Norm is convinced that being good at math will guarantee him a big win at a poker game. He gets wiped out because he lacks ''all'' the skills that make a good poker player: he doesn't know how to read other players' tells, bluff or keep a poker face, sweating like crazy anytime he has good cards.
* TheUnfavorite: Pristine Manderbelt.
* WeirdCurrency: Golf tees, because the Manderbelts wished it so.
* WomenAreWiser: Averted, unusually for an animated DomCom. Shelia isn't stupid but she's ''very'' hot tempered and capable of making bad decisions.
