*** A few "Mini Mac" locations with drive-thru and walk-up windows akin to Rally's/Checkers[[note]]Arlington, Texas; Bay City and Redford Township, Michigan; Toledo, Ohio; West Los Angeles, California; and Boston, Massachusetts[[/note]]. Surprisingly for such a failed concept, two (West Los Angeles, California and Bay City, Michigan) are still open.

The location in the food court of Lakeview Square Mall in Battle Creek, Michigan was also originally branded as Mini Mac, but later "upgraded" to a regular location before closing in TheNineties. Surprisingly for such a failed concept, two (West Los Angeles, California and Bay City, Michigan) are still open.


Added DiffLines:

*** Another limited-menu version called [=McSnack=] operated for a few years. One was in Crossroads Mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota; one in Janesville Mall in Janesville, Wisconsin; and one in La Jolla, California. Notably, the St. Cloud store didn't even sell burgers, just nuggets, desserts, and breakfast items.
*** [=McDonald's=] designed the "[=McStop=]", a combination gas station, restaurant, hotel, and strip mall in Lakeville, Minnesota in 1986. While the entire complex is still operational, the [=McStop=] branding has been removed. Coincidentally, the motel on the complex was originally Daystop, a FlawedPrototype "no frills" design for Days Inn, but is now a Motel 6.

* The story FanFic/GarfieldInAlongCameASplut has Ronald briefly cameo, now a nihilistic DeathSeeker after falling on hard times (he can't even afford to buy one of his own happy meals). He happily ends his hollow existence of product placement by letting {{Garfield}} run him over in the [[Franchise/BackToTheFuture Delorean.]]

** The company introduced mozarella sticks in November 2015, likely to compete with Arby's, the only other notable fast food chain on the market to sell mozarella sticks. In January 2016, the company recieved customer complaints due to the cheese sticks supposedly missing mozarella, the key ingridient. In not a long matter of time, the company was sued for allegations over the cheese sticks containing "fake" mozarella. The item was quickly discontinued, thus being a limited time offer.

* BlackComedy: There were a couple comercials in the 90s where the Hamburglar tried (unsuccessfully, thank goodness) to nab the talking burgers. In one of them (done inside Hamburger University), Ronald catches him and makes him write on the chalkboard as punishment.

* AnimateInanimateObject: These show up in commercials a lot, and not just food. One commercial from the 70s had talking trash cans, while commercials from the 90s suggested ''everything'' in Ronald's house was alive, including furniture, utensils, and even his big, red clown shoes. (Which he got from the Tooth Fairy for some reason.)
