Rick Harrison and his family own and run a pawn shop on the Las Vegas strip. They buy, sell, and appraise items of historical value.
Did You Know?
All four main characters have nicknames three of which are better known by said nicknames (Corey Harrison = Big Hoss, Austin Russell = Chumlee, Richard Harrison = Old Man.) In early episodes Rick Harrison was nicknamed The Spotter and Richard Harrison was nicknamed The Appraiser, but these never caught on. See more
When a man was selling some antique Red Comet Fire Grenades, Rick mistook the clear liquid enclosed in the glass bulbs as water but it's really carbon tetrachloride which is very toxic but far more effective for putting out fires. See more
Himself - 'The Spotter'
I'm Rick Harrison, and this is my pawn shop. I work here with my old man and my son, "Big Hoss." Everything in here has a story and a price. One thing I've learned after 21 years - you never know what is gonna come through that door.
Seasons from 2009-2013 feature the "original" intro sequence, which shows members of the Harrison family around the shop, showing off and handling a number of items the shop carries (including Confederate money.) This intro is noteworthy in that it does not at all feature Chumlee (as it is unlikely the crew knew how popular he would become at the time.) Starting mid 2013, a new intro sequence began airing, with an instrumental by Lynyrd Skynyrd serving as the theme music. It features the 4 main cast members (including Chumlee) walking down a Vegas street together, and ends with them standing on the Pawn Shop roof. See more
