We’ve covered McDonald’s a few times on this channel and this will likely not be the last. Theorists, have you ever heard of McDonaldland, the McDonald’s theme park? Yes, a real place where you could go hang out with Ronald McDonald, the Hamburglar, Grimace, and the rest. Think of it like a Disney but for a fast food chain… because that was exactly what McDonald’s was trying to rip off. It is time to open the greasy wrapper of a part of McDonald’s dark history that they want you to forget.

  1. Food theory idea that occurred to me while rewatching the GT Live playthrough of kindergarten 2.
    What is the best food to use in a food fight? Based on things like accuracy, mess factor and the slap factor when it hits your opponent.
    Hope you guys see this 😁

  2. Food theory idea is it actually possible to cook an egg on the sidewalk


  4. Rosanna Pansino as a guest in food theory anyone?

  5. Food theory: do pineapple eat you alive?

  6. I just got a 30 minute ad while i was watching

  7. this smacks of the whole Baby Peanut debacle after the success of Baby Yoda. did brands just rediscover the value of mascots, only this time turn the cuteness and large-eyedness of it all up to eleven?

  8. I still own two of the McDonald vhs tapes, they are really weird.

  9. Can you do a theory called “Is Zaxby’s a ripoff of Guthrie’s?”

  10. Good Food Theory Video Idea Could scooby and shaggy beat a professional eater?

  11. McDonaldland looks like nightmare fuel. I'm not surprised when it comes to the founder of Mc Donalds. And I did watch the movie, makes me wonder more of what dark secrets the guy has.

  12. thank you mat pat i wached hr pufnstuf all the time as a kid and you just brought back so many good memories

  13. Ripoff?

    According to the courts, Captain Marvel ripped off Superman, yet we still got Marvel's Gladiator a mere two decades later.

    Mcdonaldland was a heck of a lot more distinct than, say, literally every arcade game that tried cashing in on the Pac-Man craze. Or all the Doom clone's years later.

    And what about Sesame Street? What about The Muppets? They're magical lands with fantastical characters too. And Seasme Street even has a theme park!
