Cap'n Crunch's Fish Tales:|
1. "The Cap'n is gone!" In 1985 and 1999, the Cap'n disappeared. In 1985, Kids collected clues from three different cereal back panels to solve where the Cap'n has gone. The answer was released December 14, 1985. (He was in the Milky Way!) In Winter 1999, the Cap'n disappeared again. This time kids could log on to the internet to help solve the clues. In Spring 2000, the Cap'n was back. Seems he was in Volcanica (at the center of the Earth) saving the Earth's supply of Crunchium.
2. The Cap'n Crunch image has been updated several times and, yes, an updated Cap'n did appear on the package following the 1985 Where's the Cap'n? promotion.
3. Cap'n Crunch's father's name is Admiral Horatio Crunch Sr. The Cap'n followed in his father's footsteps and became a great navigator of the seas. Along the way he discovered Crunch Island and began harvesting the ingredients for his cereal.
4. There is a story that an early box of Cap'n Crunch featured images of a snake, and a shark hanging by a noose with a spider in the shark's mouth. The message was that Cap'n Crunch could rid kids of these three fears. Has anyone actually seen this box, and can anyone verify this information?

|Crunchlings (2000) live in Volcanica. Crunchberries give the Crunchlings their thick, lustrous and colorful fur. The Crunchium isotope, found in Crunchium (the 13th element in the Periodic Breakfast Table of Elements, discovered in the late-1930s by Professor Dewey Luvettnhow) is what keeps the Crunchlings so cheerful and energetic. Crunchium is the secret ingredient that gives Cap'n Crunch cereal its unique, sweet taste!|
