Cap'n Crunch to Host Late-Night Internet Talk Show

Just in case you thought the late-night talk-show circuit was getting too crowded, make room for one more celeb in the mix -- and be sure to add some ice-cold milk.

Beginning May 7, celebrity cereal mascot Cap'n Crunch will host his very own late-night YouTube talk show every other Tuesday night at 11:35. And, like the cereal, the show is geared toward stoners adults, not children.

According to Mashable, The Cap'n Crunch Show will feature host Cap'n Horatio Magellan Crunch and his trusty sidekick, Sea Dog, interviewing animated celebrities and fictional characters inside a giant bowl of cereal. Topics will range from pop culture to social media to puppies. According to the Cap'n, late night just isn't "crunchy" enough -- hence the new show, which is aiming to appeal to adults who grew up with the Cap'n and his cereal.

The Cap'n, by the way, was created by Jay Ward, who also created Rocky and Bullwinkle, Dudley Do-Right, and George of the Jungle.

No word yet on whether Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel are Quaker-ing in their shoes over this new competition. (Quaker Oats Company makes Cap'n Crunch. Get it?)
