    My favorite McDonald's commercials were the "Make It Mac Tonight" that aired during the mid/late 1980s (1986-1988), that featured a guy dressed as a crescent moon wearing a suit and huge shades, singing to the tune of "Mack The Knife". Although I believe the "Make It Mac Tonight" commercials were geared towards adults, I remember seeing toy figures of the "moon man" included in Happy Meals during the late 1980s. What were your favorite McDonald's commercials?

    the ones that don't suck. lol referring to the buddin buhs commercials that do suck.

    ok to be serious, I'll go with the one where a high school class goes to a museum a the bus driver bring them Mcdonald's and the one dude was offering a Brontosaurus statue a bite of his Mac.

    that one was cool.

    I liked the McDonald's commercial with the mentally disabled man working the counter who says, "Welcome to McDonalds. Can I help you?" I used to work with mentally disabled and it's good to see them interacting in society.

    Oh since we're on McDonalds right now can anyone else think back and recall when they used to give us our burgers in those oh so earth friendly foam containers?

    I think he was on top of a tall building in at least one of the commercials.

    Three in particular.

    I also liked the Mac Tonight commercial that I saw, I think it would have been the one where he is sitting on the burger. I actually illustrated Mac Tonight in a drawing for a creative writing story I made at school, my parents may still have it at home.

    Another one I liked a lot aired in the Christmas season of 1987, when Birdie and Grimace give Ronald a shooting star for Christmas:

    Finally this one, c. 1991, "a new 'do". Quite funny:

    I can't resist posting this one, too: the same commercial but dubbed into Chinese:

    Here's my favorites that I actually remember seeing on tv during my favorite shows at the time:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NWvR1Ar_a8
    Yeah I instantly remembered that one.

    I can't find one that I distinctly remember anywhere on youtube, but I think it's from 1985 or 1986 and it's called "Hamburglar in Cheeseburger Chase" or something. And they play a video game to get hamburglar thru a maze to the cheeseburger at the end.

    I also remember Ronald saying: "Hey it's the McDonalds happy meal guys! Soft drink, hamburger, and fries...all regular size!"

    Ahh the one from '84-85 with Jason Alexander (when he had hair) singing about the Mc BLT, and he has the whole dance line/company singing and dancing behind him.

    There was another one where they're all ice skating, and the kid falls...and Ronald helps him- awwww, so sweet.

    "It's a good time, for the great taste, of Mc Donalds" (Or "You deserve a break today...." they resurrected that one, didn't they...a few years back).
