You may not be old enough to remember, but Ronald McDonald has changed a lot over the years. Fifty two years ago today the first McDonald’s ad hit TV. I’m not sure the guy from the restaurant thought..."advertise?, this is a gamble." I'm sure the guy who came up with the hat and the nose put about 20 seconds of thought into it.

Today Ronald is one of the most recognized characters around the world, (Mickey still wins this one).

Happy anniversary to the fast food ad...boy have they changed!
