Can you remember all these former fast food mascots?

You probably have to be a Boomer to remember all these characters.

Mmm… burgers and pizza. It doesn't take much to get Americans hungry for those two favorite foods, not to mention fries, shakes, chicken and tacos. Nevertheless, fast-food chains trot out cute and clever characters to lure us in.

You probably had to live through the Seventies and Eighties to remember all of these vintage mascots. Restaurants have brought some of them back for nostalgia's sake. We can't complain. They bring back memories of ketchup and kid's meals.

How many of them can you remember?

  1. Domino's wanted you to "avoid" him.

  2. Dairy Queen used this newspaper comic strip character for years.

  3. Before Ronald, McDonald's relied on this fellow to sell its burgers.

  4. McDonald's rolled out this fellow to sell its Shamrock Shakes.

  5. Pizza Hut had a fellow named "Pizza ______"?

  6. This Dunkin' Donuts character grumbled, "Time to make the donuts…"

  7. A&W had this cute yellow dude.

  9. Kids (and parents) went to ShowBiz Pizza Place for the pie and this animatronic bear.

  10. Burger Chef had The Burger Chef, of course, and his young sidekick named…?

  11. Hardee's used this cartoon cowboy in 1970s commercials.

4/12...8 wrong! I didn’t pay attention to the commercials too often and most of these weren’t in our region of the country.

I can't believe I got 10-12. Probably the highlight of my day. I worked at Red Barn in PA in the late 70's.

I've probably eaten more than my share of fast food over the past [mumble mumble] years. But I obviously didn't swallow the ads...

I got 6/12. I only knew of Burger Chef because of 'Mad Men'. And 'Kurger Bing'? Yikes. BK would do well to bring him back, though, as the current King is so creepy.

The current "Burger King" could remind one a those scary clowns; also, I didn't know that the cartoon character that hawked Burger King decades ago was named "Kurger Bing".

5/12.
1. Remember laying out one too many Domino's ads featuring this bad 1980s marketing campaign (pardon the redundancy) when I was with my university's student newspaper. Didn't help matters that Tom Monaghan owned both Domino's and the Detroit Tigers, with the latter being an AL East rival of my Orioles at the time.
