We all know the mouth scraping-ly good cereal known as Cap'n Crunch. What you may NOT know is that the good ole "Cap'n" is no captain at all! In fact he is nothing but a LIAR! You see, this well loved cereal mascot has been masquerading for YEARS as an honorable captain but today, Loyal Theorists, we are pulling back the curtain on this so-called captain!

    and also, regardless, of whether or not he served, his bands on his sleeves represent a commander rank, not a captain's. The commander rank is MUCH lower than the captain rank.

    I am the biggest fan of Matpat that I know of! I subbed to all 3 channels, i watched almost all vids, just no horror or scary things, and I have considered starting a channel solely devoted to reacting to MatPat vids! I luv these channels! (This was a random comment at 11 pm.)

  • Redsword1550

    Isn't he just a privateer with delusions of grandeur? Privateers are still called captain usually since they're basically legal pirate/mercenaries that are attack other country's ships. Maybe he just plays dress up as a way to seem more legit.

    Theory: The adults are the misfit children and they left him cause they saw him do the bad things to the dog and lafoote. He is employing the actions of a toxic partner by coming to their side whenever they think of them, and trying to win them over without changing their actions at all. Not only is he a murderer, he is a lonely one who abuses grown up misfits-

    Yes the theory is valid but if you actually look at the box he doesn't claim to be a captain its cap'n crunch not captain crunch now I haven't seen any commercials in a while but I always remember them saying cap'n and never captain but I could be wrong
