Corporal Crunch is a supporting character in the Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe, serving as a protagonist and a member of The Clan, and the "clone" of Colonel Crunch. He made his debut in Bread's Crumbs, and later returned as a supporting character in Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo. Corporal appeared via unreleased archival footage in The Conundrum Dimension; he also has a minor cameo in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam, although it is hardly noticeable. Corporal is played by Eric Gorbaty.
During World War II, Corporal Crunch was captured by the Nazis and used in various medical experiments. One such experiment involved his DNA being combined with Colonel Crunch's DNA to see if a clone of Colonel Crunch could be made - setting in motion the experiments that would create Jumpa X. Ultimately, the experiment on Corporal failed, but the two were genetically modified so they wouldn't show or feel age. Shortly after, Colonel and Corporal Crunch escaped, and became trusted allies.
Many years later, Crunch became a member of The Clan along with Colonel Crunch. Like the other members of The Clan, he dedicated his life to safeguarding ancient artifacts, most notably The Crumbs.
In the first film, Corporal Crunch is summoned by Captain Jumpa after The Crumbs was supposedly stolen from the Tomb of the Bacchus - when in actuality, a duplicate version of the artifact, "Fake Crumbs", was coveted. Corporal does not arrive until later in the battle, when most of The Clan has been struck down by the villainous Bread Nelson. When Jumpa destroyed the Fake Crumbs, The Clan regained its energy and Corporal Crunch joined them after the battle. Corporal and Colonel Crunch would then irritate Bread Nelson, with Colonel stating that Nelson is stuck with him and his clone forever.
A year later, Corporal Crunch meets with Glen Tennis, who holds a meeting with the rest of The Clan. Together, they discuss what happened to The Crumbs. Glen realized that a fake version of the artifact was placed in the Tomb of the Bacchus, and it would poison anyone that tried taking it. Glen states that the real artifact is hidden in Mekron Woods, and he hopes to retrieve it and keep it out of the wrong hands. As The Clan further discusses recent events, Sandy Sandler talks about the vision he received of the ancient Bacchus and Nazi Mitch. During the discussion, Corporal Crunch is perplexed and fascinated by Sandy's vision.
Shortly after, Biscuit Savage arrives and attacks The Clan - terrified, Corporal's clone flees from the scene, but Corporal stays to fight. Despite his best attempts to battle the brute, Biscuit Savage overwhelms The Clan and kills Glen Tennis, leaving John Bacchus in charge of the team. The Clan goes to Mekron Woods to find The Crumbs. Though Flynt claims the artifact, Nazi Mitch steals it, and traps Colonel and Corporal Crunch in the Conundrum Dimension.
After the second film, Bachus has gone searching for a portal that can access the Conundrum Dimension. Inside the dimension, Colonel Crunch and Corporal Crunch are trapped with Biscuit Savage, who was sent there after consuming Fake Crumbs at the end of the second film. Eventually, Bacchus manages to ally with Bjorn Alvarez, a bounty hunter who's holding onto the portal. Unfortunately, Bjorn claims he's unaware of how to get someone out of the dimension.
Sometime after the events of The Conundrum Dimension, Corporal Crunch was freed along with Colonel Crunch and Biscuit Savage.
At some point prior to the film's events, he, Sandy and Colonel Crunch were captured by the U.B.N.V.A. and forced into working for them. Bacchus was aware of this, but due to his lust for The Crumbs' power, paid no mind to it. Corporal Crunch makes a brief cameo in the film, as he's seen working in the U.B.N.V.A.'s computer room alongside Sandy Sandler.
After Nazi Mitch's demise and the U.B.N.V.A.'s downfall, Corporal Crunch escaped and reunited with his old allies.
- Due to scheduling issues, Eric Gorbaty will not reprise the role of Corporal Crunch for the upcoming fourth film. After numerous failed attempts to film with Eric, his role was ultimately cut from the project.
