Seems kind of odd that they didn't point out that Willard Scott was the very first Ronald McDonald.  That's what makes it super-creepy.

That's some fine journalizin' there, Lou.

Colonel Sanders is creepy?

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

None of those are particularly creepy. The Colonel Sanders one is basically just saying, he's old I don't want old on my food.

Early Ronald McDonald is probably the only "creepy" mascot of the bunch. And that's only because of the jar of pickled "monkey" hands he'd show people after publicity events.

granted, my only real experience with advertising is from watching mad men, but i happen to believe that if one is unable to differentiate a brand mascot from the food one is eating, you are deserving of neither advanced cognition nor nutrition.

i have yet to eat a foodstuff that make me happy, pleased, excited et al. simply by virtue of how it is sold to me.

Forget the Hamburglar, Jack is clearly the real criminal.

a57.foxnews.com

You blow up one conference room full of stuffed shirts and they label you a criminal.
I'd rather work for Jack than Ronald McDonald. Jack would come to your cube "Harry. Let's walk and talk. This way, harry. you know, we really like having you around here, Harry. The people like you and you do real quality work. But you don't get to see all the numbers, Harry. Our Tilapia Breakfast Burrito was a flop. Marketing called it 'health conscious and a driver,' Harry. How can you argue with those metrics? Anyhoo, I have ware houses full of tilapia and contract with a Mexican tortilla factory to produce a million tortilla. Looks like I'm gonna have to shingle my floor with tortillas, Harry. Anyhow, through no fault of your own, we're gonna have to let you go. I'd give you a letter of glowing recommendation but no one reads those anyways and legal says no. Well, here we are, Harry. The street. Good luck and good bye. Security is dumping your stuff out. those cardboard boxes aren't cheap.

Ronald McDonald? Hey hey everybody in Cube Farm C! Let's all wave bye bye to Harry. He's got to go. Bye bye Harry! Walk towards the door, Harry. Don't give Sheriff Big Mac any trouble now. He'll taze you like a coffee swilling table squatter.

So my kid was asking me the other day, "What is the Green Giant made of?  Is he all one vegetable, or made of different vegetables?"

I had no response, mind blown...

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

Lucky. I got to see one of his knock offs open a McDonald's in Chicago.. He appeared in a roped off area in front of the store, threw a handful of cheap toys in to the crowd and disappeared in to the store.

I wasn't the only kid disappointed. Later that year, when the plaza welcomed Santa, Ronald rode in the front seat of the fire truck while Santa rode in the back. Just before the truck passed in front of me, a kid hurled something at Ronald. Ron just shook his finger at the crowd. But he got the message: Don't bring your uptown attitude in to the south side.

Then Ringmaster Ned walked through the crowd. Now, that was a class act.

The creepiest one I've seen in the past few years was an insurance commercial (Geico I think). It featured a guy that seemed to know a little too much about his neighbor's activities. They were in their front yards doing yard work or washing their cars or something similar. He was questioning his neighbor about how he could afford to insure his recreational vehicles. The creepy neighbor looked exactly like Dennis Rader, the BTK Killer.

He's made of delicious vegetables. Every day, we have to pull veggies off of him. And if you don't eat your veggies, he will continue to grow. Look how freaking big he is now, kid. Scientist say that if you don't develop a healthy appetite for Brussels Sprouts (you don't want to know where those grow on him, believe me), he will grow so big that his weight will push the planet out of it's orbit. We'll freeze to death or burst in to flames depending on where he's standing.

It was a lot easier back in the baby boom years but you kids have got to pick up the pace. You might be looking at butter beans for breakfast. Yeah. it is just that bad.

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.

GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve: 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.


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.

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


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.

But this list appears on FoxNews.com. So I can't be sure any of these mascots actually existed.

hands down the sponge monkeys from quizno's is the creepiest, followed close second by the King. neither of which made this list. thus list = fail.

Rufus Lee King: Arby's living, talking oven mitt always creeped me out for some reason. Can't say why, really.

Is it just me, or does the Arby's Oven Mitt look like he might be the Hamburger Helper Hand's special-needs brother?

for me it's Flo the progressive broad. she's like a scary clown nurse, you expect her to be creeping around with an enema bag.

That picture just isn't creepy. The fact that it's Hugh Laurie makes it funny, not creepy.

AAAAAAA! AAAAAAAA! AAAAAAAGH! Just... Why? Why would you eat a cereal advertised by a pedophile serial killer? It looks like he's about to lurch off the box and gouge out your eyes with his spoon!

There is no actual context to that list.  Seen from the times each mascot came from, there were a lot crazier stuff to choose from than what's in the list.  In fact, if you want a creepy Jack In The Box, I refer to this pic, which I linked many, many, many years ago, in a similar thread, in a similar vein, and pointed out at least current Jack ain't sportin' this head:
