Walker: Willard Scott as Ronald next to me back in the late 60's. I'm like "Who the f*ck is this clown?"


Someone really should check the crawl space under his house.

I agree with everyone else. List is a total fail. No King, no spongmonkeys. Jack is one of the coolest mascots ever. And nobody messes with the Macho Man!

The California Raisins are awesome and the writer can shut his whore mouth.

They had their own line of cool action figures for chrissakes.


I recall seeing an article on Fark noting that in spite of their popularity as characters moving merchandise, cartoons, and record albums, they utterly failed to sell more raisins.

I have a strange memory from childhood where begged my mother for months to buy me the raisin holding the microphone.  She finally caved and I treasured that farking thing for years.  Never did like to eat raisins, though.

BowtoMogul: What about the creepy moon-man from Mac Tonight?


CSB: There was a girl in my high school that had a prominent chin and forehead and generally felt her shiat didn't stink; her nickname in the hallways was "Big Mac Tonight".

JohnAnnArbor: Cold_Sassy: Colonel Sanders is creepy?

And the Noid should be #1 on the most-annoying list, not creepy, just stupid.

A guy named Noid robbed a Domino's because of the Noid.


...and the most messed up thing about the Noid was that at that time I lived close to a major theme park (not Florida) and I always had a season pass 'til I got burnt out. In the midway where they had all the 'games of skill' one of the prizes you could win was a large Noid. I remember thinking: who the fark would spend money for THAT??? It was even better when you'd see some dumba*s dragging one around the park for the rest of the day.

Back in the 80's, I kinda sorta remember the kid in the wheel chair was still wearing his Moto X gear. Sure didn't have a motorized chair, the crippled aristocrat. Thought the blonde would grow up to be hawt. I guess I was wrong.


The one in the visor was called "Kid Vid", that is all I can recall.
Props to BK for having a token black AND Hispanic kid rounding out their cast.

Seriously...

I want a job where I can party all night...

and then write down the 1st 10 random things that occur to me, call it a list and have the boss think I've done a days work.

"Whoa dude, do you like remember Frankenberry? How creepy was that!"

The only thing creepier than Burger King's Plaster headed King is their new commercial with the staff singing & dancing including a muppet of undetermined origin.

"In this film from the 70's..."

And I stopped right there... Seriously biatch, can't you be bothered to do the slightest amount of research? I understand it's Fox and all, but the California Raisins didn't launch until 1980-farking-6.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_California_Raisins
 
2013-04-18 02:11:51 PM  

MonkeyAngst: In this film from the 70's, the gang sings Stevie Wonder's classic "Signed, Sealed, Delivered."

I see Fox News's high journalistic standards are in play even in their useless Buzzfeed-esque pop-culture slideshow endeavors.

The California Raisins debuted in 1986. Right there on their Wikipedia page.


Whoops, sorry, I didn't see your post, and said almost the same exact thing, except I think you were nicer.

doubled99: List is farking stupid. Nothing creepy about Frankenberry, Chester, or Jack in the Box.


Yeah, list sucks. Jack is actually pretty badass. I think that woman needs to look up the definitions of both "creepy" and "the 70's", then go back to journalism school and then try her list again.

I'll give them a pass on the Burger King... that was trying to be creepy.  I think lists like this should stick to the unintentional.

Huh.  There's a guy in my neighborhood we call Kid Vid, too.

Come to think of it, he also looks like he eats a couple hundred dollars worth of Burger King each week.

The first time I ever saw them, the sound on the TV was off, and I had walked in mid-performance.  I had no idea what they were supposed to be, and I just assumed they were supposed to be some band of singing, dancing turds.  That's why I never questioned why their facial expressions looked like they were crapping out the business end of a baseball bat.

"Ooey-gooey, rich and chewy inside.
Golden cakey, tender flaky outside.
Wrap the inside with the outside,
is it good?  Darn tootin'!
It's the Big Fig Newton!
(Here's the tricky part)
The Big Fig Newton!"
