Norman 'Norm' Wendell is one of the main characters in the TV series Crash Canyon.
He is the head of the Wendell family and an extremely rational engineer, who never loses his temper (but has a few rants every now and then) and is arguably the sanest person in the canyon. He has very little social skill and tries unsuccessfully to solve his problems with science. In his younger days he was unlucky in love, until he met his wife Sheila. He also wears sandals with socks, a very popular trend.
