Watch Cajun Pawn Stars

Set in the Silver Dollar Pawn & Jewelry Center in Alexandria, Louisiana, the show isn't related to "Pawn Stars" but it has a very similar feel. The pawn shop is run by the DeRamus family, including husband Jimmie "Big Daddy" DeRamus, outspoken wife Peggy, little brother Johnnie and the still-learning younger daughter Tammie. The episodes often include some of the other shop employees such as Tina Journet and Walt Piper, although there seem to be some employees that remain off-camera. Many episodes also include the shop's gun expert Gary Ermatinger.

As is the case with "Pawn Stars," each episode of "Cajun Pawn Stars" follows a familiar format. Someone brings in an unusual item looking to pawn or perhaps sell it outright. There is a discussion about its history and if it's an unusual item Jimmie might bring in an "expert" to help determine its true value. There is often a question about whether the item is exactly as billed by the seller. Often it's an item given as a gift or inherited that is thought to be a valuable antique. But instead it's a knock-off or has been previously damaged and repaired.

Since the show has "Cajun" in the title, it's not a surprise that many of the items on the show revolve around the loca culture. So there are plenty of unusual guns, traps and other items used in a rural setting. Viewers also see a lot of unusual guns and rare items dating back to the Civil War.

But there are also a number of more unusual items that are brought into the shop. Some of the more unusual items include a Greyhound bus that the owner claims belongs to TV star and country music icon Barbara Mandrell, a very rare pygmy goat, a gold-plated bathtub claimed to have once been owned by Andrew Jackson and a one-of-a-kind Scooby and Shaggy talking figurine.
