The Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Special..Brought To You By McDonald’s…

As hard as I have tried to remember, and maybe I missed something, I can’t really find a good tie in from a fast food place to Thanksgiving. I doubt little money is made by the burger places on Thanksgiving, in fact most are closed on this great holiday. Fortunately, though, I was able to find this old ad spot from McDonald’s from 1986 sponsoring the classic cartoon “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”. Apparently McDonald’s ran a bunch of commercials during the show that year.

Tomorrow kicks off the official Christmas shopping season and, over the years, McDonald’s and friends have been commercializing the life out of that season. That’s all for now, go enjoy some leftover turkey and check back tomorrow.
