Bring Back the Mayor, Mayor McCheese!

Mayor McCheese

I’ll be honest, Mayor McCheese is well before my time (as are a lot of the McDonaldland characters). That said, I’d still love to see Mayor McCheese make a return.

Fortunately, I’m not alone! The good folks at bringbackthemayor.com got a petition going to get McDonalds to bring back Mayor McCheese.

Why’d disappear anyway? Well, McDonalds got into some legal squabbles with TV producers Sid and Marty Krofft who claimed Mayor McCheese was a ripoff of their showH.R. Pufnstuf. Sid and Marty won, but all they got was some money. McDonalds was allowed to continue airing the commercials featuring Mayor McCheese, but for whatever reason, they didn’t.

So let’s bring ’em back! And in case you need convincing, here are some videos featuring Mayor McCheese:
