Trivia / The Wacky Adventures of Ronald McDonald

Go To

  • Children Voicing Children: Tika and Frankin were both voiced by children.
  • Invisible Advertising: The series was advertised a lot when the first three tapes were released, but the second half of the series wasn't. Made worse that the sixth and final video was only available through the Klasky-Csupo website in 2002/2003 as McDonalds never put that episode through their restaurants.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Much like McDonalds Happy Meal toys, these videos were not made to last. Each installment was only sold for a limited-time and even the Klasky Csupo website only had limited quantities. They have also never received a reissue of any kind, not even on DVD.

  • No Export for You: The videos weren't available to buy outside of the United States.
  • The Other Darrin: A few:
  • Role Reprise:
    • Jack Doepke, the actor who played Ronald during the 1990s, provided his voice.
    • Same thing with David Hussey, who replaced Doepke in 2000.
    • Jeff Lupetin also reprises his role of Iam Hungry.
    • Also, Charlie Adler reprises the Hamburglar, having previously voiced him in the "Hamburglar Touch" commercial in 1984.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Kevin Michael Richardson voices both Grimace and Chief Gunga of the Grimaces.
    • Charlie Adler voices Hamburglar, the McSplorer, and McNugget #3 (the purple one).
  • What Could Have Been: If the ending of "The Monster O'McDonaldland Loch" is any indication, there were going to be more than just six videos.
  • The Shelf of Movie Languishment: The first three videos (Scared Silly, The Legend of Grimace Island, and Visitors From Outer Space) were produced in 1998, but the latter two were released in January and April 1999. Birthday World was produced in 2000, but came out the following year. The sixth and final video (The Legend of Ol' McDonaldland Loch) was produced in 2001 and released two years later.
