So after posting in another thread today it got me thinking. What ever happened to Ronald McDonald? It seems McDonalds has moved away from his image or any of the comic characters. Growing up him and the gang was always in all the commercials, had pictures of them in the restaurants, their faces on Happy Meals etc. He has now disappeared almost entirely except for people's memories or videos from Youtube. I even remember statues sitting on benches outside of McDonalds and their play rooms. So what happened? Was he a bad image for the company? Did he scare kids? Did The King from Burger King kill him?
