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!

    I was thinking more along the lines of this Speedy than this Speedy.

        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!

          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.

        My mother had a story about my brother singing along to the Alka-Seltzer commercial. =)
