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
