i find Ronald McDonald creepy but i don't like clowns
Warning: These early commercials with an early version of Ronald McDonald may very well fall under the category of "Nightmare Fuel":He's so delightfully 80's. He even has that 80's retro 50's vibe to it. I loved seeing his commercials when they had them during cartoon prime time specials. I believe he had a series of small plastic figures and maybe a shirt or two. Shame they can't bring him back. Then again, I'm disappointed they discontinued the McDonaldland characters years ago. I miss Hamburgalar and Grimace. And that pirate guy.
Come to think of it, what other mascots were considered disturbing?
This second early McDonald's commercial tends to make what our parents taught us about talking to strangers, accepting gifts from them, or going someplace with them a bit of a Broken Aesop:
