Button Sunday

Speedee was so far ahead of my time that I didn’t even know he’d ever existed as McDonald’s first mascot. If you’d asked me, I’d have said Speedy was the little Alka-Seltzer guy. In fact, you can read here how McDonald’s gave up their Speedee in part to remove any association with Speedy.

You can teach an old dame new trivia!

      1. Until now, I only knew about Speedy Gonzalez. This alter Alka-Seltzer guy and its other alter ego just couldn’t replicate The Ronald McDonald!

        1. The funny thing is, I don’t remember Ronald McDonald until I was a grown up, but he was around when I was a kid. That same thing is true of Dr. Seuss books. No memory of them until I was grown.
