    They always say that the McDLT was discontinued over the styrofoam packaging, but McDonald's still uses styrofoam to serve thier breakfast platters.

    The Burgers used must be plastic. Not one time in this ad do I see a "Burger" bit.

    They were discontinued because of the styrafoam packaging. During the early 90's when everyone was pertending to be 'envirnmentaly friendly'.

    These things were pretty good. Arch Deluxe's were better.

    I loved getting these things.

    Great concept, but impractical...not only under the heat lamps, but the amount of packaging. And styrofoam!

    Catchy Jingle! And was the McDLT really that huge in real life?

    I read a book once that pointed out that the concept of keeping "the cool side cool" was a little ridiculous if all the burgers were kept under heat lamps before serving.

    I'm pretty sure that the main reason that the McDLT was discontinued because it was a lot more fattening than a Big Mac (That's pretty fattening). There could have been other reasons though.

    I remember I stopped getting Happy Meals for awhile to get the McDLT because I thought it was "cooler and more adult" least it tasted better then a Big Mac.

    ^ Great idea! I should drive up and make them replace that awful Big and Tasty with a McDLT

    How awesome of a prank it would be to try an order a McDLT these days for kicks. That was a great burger if I do remember.

    I remember the day we drove through a McDonald's, and my dad ordered McDLT's, and the guy said they don't make McDLT's anymore. Sad.

    Upon the introduction of the McDLT, they had that silly gimmick of putting the "hot" half and the "cool" half in separate styrofoam compartments. Wasteful and ridiculous, and yet appropriate for the mid-eighties.

    Still, the theme song reminds me of all the catchy McDonald's tunes of the eighties. I would really like to see the Mac the Knife ripoff/Mac Tonight commercial featuring the singing, piano-playing, crescent moon-head in a tux. That was a great commercial!
