We have a new Ad Icons Funko Pop to talk about today in the form of this new McDonald’s – Speedee Funko Pop! Funko Shop Exclusive. I have all the news and info on this new Funko Collectible, images, background on Speedee, and the best online retailers to pick this new Ad Icon McDonald’s Funko Pop! up from.
The McDonald’s hamburger logo Speedee has his own Funko Pop! in the form of a very cool Funko Shop Exclusive and he is just so cute.
This new Speedee Ad Icons Funko Pop is based on Speedee’s iconic original design. He is wearing his signature chef’s hat and has the biggest smile on his face and is giving us all a cheeky wink, and he looks great!

McDonald’s – Speedee Funko Pop! Funko Shop Exclusive
Speedee really is a mascot that has been overlooked to some degree. We are all aware of Ronald McDonald, the king from Burger King, and Colonel Sanders but I have to admit I hadn’t actually come across Speedee before even though he is the original McDonald’s mascot.
He really has been forgotten over the years.

Speedee was first introduced as the fast food chain’s mascot in 1948.
He was a little chef with a big smile who was supposed to represent the restaurant’s speedy service.
The loveable little chef Speedee was the face of the fast food chain McDonald’s for almost 20 years before being replaced in 1967 by Ronald McDonald.
It is reported that the Speedee mascot was very, very close in design to the Alka Seltzer’s logo. Mcdonald’s really didn’t want any association or confusion with indigestion tablets. It wouldn’t have been a good look for a restaurant. McDonald’s was forced to quietly drop Speedee in favor of Ronald McDonald.
For me, Speedee is a much better option as the face of McDonald’s than Ronald McDonald has been.
