The main McDonald's characters include Ronald McDonald, Grimace, Hamburglar, Birdie the Early Bird and the Fry Kids. Other prominent characters in the past included Mayor McCheese, Officer Big Mac, The Professor, Captain Crook and Sundae. The characters were used as part of advertising and marketing for McDonald's from the 1970s through the 1990s. With the exception of Ronald McDonald, all the other characters were gradually phased out of use.
