Pawn Stars: Price of a Kellogg Cereal Box Surprises Corey (Season 16) | History

– Hey, how’s it going? Hi, how are you? Doing good. What do we got? I have an unused 1961
Sugar Smacks cereal box. COREY: All right. That’s Quick Draw McGraw, right? Yes. Who’s that one? Huckleberry Hound. COREY: Huckleberry Hound. It was simple advertising. If you bring a kid
down a cereal aisle and he sees his favorite
cartoon character on a box of cereal, that’s
the box of cereal he wants. That’s what got me
when I was a kid. The toys that were inside,
that’s what really prompted me. COREY: Oh yeah. Me and my brother would
fight over the toy. I have the cereal box
because I’m a collector of Hanna-Barbera items. I collect many things from
Hanna-Barbera, including lunchboxes, cereal boxes, toys. I’ve had this cereal
box for 15, 20 years. There’s no sentimental
value to me. It’s just another
thing that I collected. COREY: This is really cool. Kellogg’s is a really, really
strange and interesting company. There was John and
William Kellogg. Eventually the
brothers split up. William was more
interested in making money and selling cereal. He came with the idea to
start marketing more to kids. He’s the one that started
putting sugar in cereals, putting cartoon
characters on there– you know, Tony the Tiger. You know, those were ideals
that he came up with. So I just don’t understand how
you get an unused cereal box. Well, what it is is I
think it’s called a flat. It’s usually from an
advertising agency who made it, and they keep a sample of it. COREY: OK, so what else
do you know about it? It’s printed in 1961. COREY: OK. It’s pretty collectible. There’s a pretty big market
for cereal-box collectors. There’s also
Hanna-Barbera collectors. Yeah. So what are you
looking to do with it? Sell it. How much are you
looking to get? $500. OK. $500. This really isn’t
my game here, man. Would you take $100? No. What’s the lowest you’ll go? $400, but these things go
for $600, $700, $800 easily. Well, my man, unfortunately
it don’t look like we’re going to make a deal. Hopefully you can find one
of those $600 people for it. Thank you. I planned on
putting the cereal box back in my collection.
$100 is way too low. He really flaked
out on the price.


  1. i love how these sellers claim that you can get xxx amount for it easily, then want less than that and get offended when offer isn't taken up

  2. Yeah 100 dollars is too much for something I know nothing about let me get my expert in unused cereal boxes to have a look at it 😂

  3. This miser scumbag does not know how to do business. If it were not for Rick, they would have already gone out of business.

  4. Nobody:

    Some dude: hey wanna buy a old slinky for 0.75?

    Rick: thats tough how about 0.50

    Some dude: hm how about 0.60

    Rick: idk thats a big risk even 0.50 was

  5. He forgot to mention how John Kellogg invented cornflakes as a abstinence/anti-masturbation food…the idea it being so bland it would not stimulate base urges.

  6. Corey says its not his thing but so sure its not worth anything. His dad needs keep him in the stock room and away from the cameras.

  7. Corey should have called Rick , it would be a lowball offer but I think Rick would've closed the deal. That cereal box should go on eBay, someone would likely buy it , even just for the art. A lot of old timers would have went for Quick draw McGraw and Huckleberry hound. I checked eBay and the seller might have been overestimated on the value. Multiple listings for vintage cereal boxes no bids and no sales.

  8. It's going back in his collection because no one wants to buy a cereal box for 400 bucks. You know these people already try to sell this crap on Ebay and no one was interested in their junk so they take it to a pawnshop hoping they get the same price they tried selling Ebay for.

  9. This is an insult to both cereal and milk community ! let us unite brothers !

    also the cut out on the eyes really bothers me…

  10. This is the one time Cory gets a pass for being a jackass. A Cereal Box ?! are you kidding me ?! I wouldve thought I was being scamed

  11. Corey: I'll give your $20 for it.
    Seller: Can you do $100?
    Corey: If it helps you out I'll give you $40 and a reach around.
    Seller: Deal.
    Corey:.Ok..drop your pants and let's do some paperwork.

  12. How in the heck does Corey, a supposed expert on all things, not know who huckleberry hound was…. fail. This show is clearly edited and I know all of them are but he knows so much about Kellogg's and cereal but not a popular hannah cartoon character… 'fake news' lol

  13. I might pay $10 for a Urkell for President box just to trot out every election refilled fresh of course. But his? Even autographed by original artist don't see $600 unless some completest collector only missing that one and doubt he could resell it that much.
