WORLD'S SECOND RONALD McDONALD
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was the world's second Ronald McDonald?

It might be hard to say exactly who the second, or even the first Ronald McDonald was. This is because at any given time on any given day, a McDonald’s franchise can hire any one of its workers, or another individual, to don the bright yellow and red costume to entertain children and other patrons of McDonald’s. But, for commercial and marketing purposes, the company McDonald’s only hires one actor at a time to portray the jolly friend and it is this that we’ll look at when we identify who the second Ronald McDonald was.

Willard Scott is widely known as being the very first Ronald McDonald. But George Voorhis might beg to disagree with this, as he thinks that he was actually the very first Ronald McDonald. This might be true, depending on how you want to look at it. It’s true that Willard Scott was officially the very first Ronald McDonald but he didn’t have the costume that kids around the world would recognize today. For that, George Voorhis can be credited, even if the people at McDonald’s don’t hold too much stock in it.

George Voorhis, like Scott, was also a clown before coming up with the famous Ronald McDonald costume. But even if McDonald’s won’t give Voorhis his nod to fame, Voorhis is more than happy to share his credit with Terry Teene, who helped to bring the now famous Ronald costume to life. This costume was also created in 1963, the same year that Willard Scott also played the role, and it included the famous French fry packet pockets, hair, and the design of the face. The costume was designed by Voorhis and Teene for a performance that Voorhis was hired to play at a Los Angeles McDonald’s restaurant.
