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.

  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.

Only if Wendy had cute buns and didn't keep asking "where's the beef"

WHAT No White Castles!! We never had any in our area but I know it’s popular still and has a movie about it!

They are the oldest fast food chain still in operation - having started in 1921. We had them in Brooklyn when I was a kid. They tried to come to the Miami area, but our local Royal Castle chain was more popular...

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.

"Hurry on down to Hardees...where the burgers are charcoal broiled" jingle still stuck in my head after all these years!

Hard to get these right. Recognize the pictures just cannot remember the name. Pretty much how I operate in work today. Know the face

I remember "Kurger Bing", but I never knew his name.

I always thought this was just a 'revised' Burger King icon... still WAY better than the "creepy death mask" version of the King they used a few years back. Remember "Wake up with the King" commercials, where a guy wakes up and the King is next to him in bed with a breakfast tray?

The face for the mask was modeled after their previous live action "Magical, Musical Burger King".

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".
