GRIMACE was a character in McDonald’s (McDonaldland) commercials, that saw its heyday in the 1970s and 80s. He was cast as a ‘well-meaning simpleton’, a role I would have been born to play. Thanks to Grimace, and his supporting players, (like Ronald McDonald himself, the Hamburglar, and Mayor McCheese et al), millions of children have grown up to become burdens on the medical system!


I really need to grow up.

  1. I used to love they old McDonald’s commercials with all of the wacky characters. To me they were just another Saturday morning cartoon (just like Hong Kong Phooey and Josie and the Pussycats and … some live-action shows like H.R. Puff-n-stuff and the Shazam/Isis Power Hour).

    And never grow up. It’s not worth it.

    1. Ah Saturday mornings. Fat Albert and the Cosby kids was my jam. Tho my dad and I differ on many things, we both loved the Cos. (tho not the sappy sitcom of the 80s)
