In 2006, Thomas "TomSka" Ridgewell was very confident to make his own animated web series. But sadly, he couldn't animate that well. He had the energy to work with Edd Gould (now deceased) for his webtoon, Eddsworld. In 2010, he decided to use the money he was making on YouTube to a fully-funded animated web-series. He didn't know what the show focuses on or if he had to use his friends or original characters. He settled on original characters, and eventually created Crash Zoom.
Months later, he wrote the script for the pilot, and as described by Tom, "It just kind of started going wrong over and over again". He approached Edgar Neilson (also known as FunyMony on YouTube) and thus the pilot was created and then lost.
