7) In 1963, one of Ray Kroc's marketing insights is his decision to advertise McDonald's hamburgers to families and children. Washington, D.C. franchisees John Gibson and Oscar Goldstein (Gee Gee Distributing Corporation) sponsor a children's show on WRC-TV called Bozo the Clown, a franchised character played by a local clown from 1959 until 1962. After the show was cancelled, Goldstein hires the local clown to portray McDonald's new mascot, named “Ronald McDonald.” According to the clown, they wanted to pay him in stock, but he decided to take the money. He, looking nothing like the familiar appearance of any McDonaldland character as is known today, appeared in the first three television advertisements featuring the character. “Ronald” was replaced with a new actor, and giving “Ronald” the more familiar red, white, and yellow clown features, the character eventually spreads to the rest of the country via an advertising campaign.
