Disclaimer: At 3:25, our editors accidentally used a military uniform that is not a U.S. Military Uniform. This was not intentional, and we acknowledge we should have caught this sooner. The LATER images ARE in fact US Navy.

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!

    There are dicrepancies in this video, what if he was in the alternate universe, after all, SHIELD does not really exist in real-life few letter agencies. Therefore it is unlisted, and unregistered, then are you saing that SHIELD is lying because they dont really exist in the real world. How about James Bond then, you might do journalistic effort to check his record on MI6 and you wont find them. Some things are ficition. And in this story maybe he actually serves in the US Navy, unless in that fiction story he was an impostor who was never been in the navy. You know fiction, you reviewed it. What happened with that? Just to follow up ur theory, for fun, might he be not a yatch captain?

    He's wearing an 18th century uniform from the Royal Navy. Around the turn of the 18th century, they started to standardize rank structure emblems, but it was still less strict. Two gold shoulder boards meant you were a captain. The extra decoration on his sleeves had no rank meaning back then. However, many officers in general would decorate their sleeves as a status of their wealth.

    ..perhaps the Captain wandered into his quarters one day to find that Seadog has found his secret to his Cereal Crunch and so the Captain decided to silence Seadog by eating him or maybe Seadog and the children are the secret behind the cereal crunch (bones). Or maybe Jean Lefoot's murder is a cover up and he is in the crunch too?! Another idea is Captain Crunch is Cornel Sanders in disguise!?

    OK, I'm just going to say this because I'm sure no one suggested this idea, Sea dog might have passed away from old age, like seriously he was at least 50 years old, and the reason why Mr. Crunch hasn't talked about Sea Dog is that he's probably mourning his death. And as for the kids that were part of his crew, they probably grew up and went to have their own lives.

    Unfortunately, it only takes a minute to finally solve this case (about the Captian, not the whole Dog and Frenchman bit) It all boils down to the fact, Mr Crunch isn't a US citizen. He was born and raised off the coast of the United States on a fictional island called Crunch Island. His outfit looks does appear to be of an old American Navy officer uniform but other nations such as Great Britian, also used said outfit. The bicorn hat, long tails and buttons. It should also mention that Captian Crunch himself is also based of a fictional British Captain, Captain Horatio Hornblower. (Who, funnily enough, is either depicted with either no existing or 3 stripes on his sleeve.) SS, could as well be used by the island of Crunch Island as well as the US, (shown by the flag on the SS Guppy to be a sovereign nation) There you go, wether the Navy of Crunch island has 3 service stripes or Captain Crunch is the captain if his own ship, let it be known, he isn't breaking US federal law.
