    Needham Harper & Steers, an ad agency (now known as the Omnicom Group) vying for McDonald's advertising accounts had originally hoped Sid and Marty Krofft, the creators of H.R. Pufnstuf, would agree to license their characters for commercial promotions. After the McDonaldland promotion went forward, the Kroffts were dismissed without being credited or paid.

    In 1973, the Kroffts successfully sued McDonald's, arguing that the entire McDonaldland premise was essentially a ripoff of their television show. Specifically, the Kroffts claimed that the character Mayor McCheese was a direct ripoff of their character, "H.R. Pufnstuf" (a mayor himself). McDonald's initially was ordered to pay $50,000. The case was later remanded as to damages, and McDonald's was ordered to pay the Kroffts more than $1,000,000 when the case was finally settled in 1977. As a result of the lawsuit, the concept of the "magical place" was all but phased out of the commercials, as were many of the original characters.

    THIS guy put out a "hit" on them, to let "Micky-D's" know they arn't invincible.
    guy hit micky-ds arnt invincible Jack in the box

    But BK didn't have as many expendable characters, so Jack gave the "king" a little "talking to" to make sure he stayed in his own lane.
    invincible bk expendable characters jack king talking stayed lane Jack in the box
    Bottom line: ...Don't f*ck with Jack.

    Also there was some sort of Captain dude that was in the original group.. I remember as a kid there was Hamburglar, Grimace, Birdie, and that Captain guy I think and Ronald McDonald of course.

    As gay marriage was not legal in the state they lived they were forced to move to Canada. So very sad but at least they have each other.

    I remember the characters though.

    I'm guessing that when BK put out "magical marvelous Burger-King", the concept went stale so the characters were retired (along with the competitor's king).
