    This was my most favorite McDonald's commercial. I used to look forward every Christmas for this commercial.

    This is back when McDonald's spent a ton of dough on their commercials. The production quality of this is astounding even by today's standards. It's a studio, with ice rink, animation, and a dozen child actors. And best part of all: they really focused on values back then, and not lifestyle like they do today. I guess the value being taught here is "inclusion."

    Wow, this brings back memories.  Thank you for uploading this.  I have this on a VHS somewhere with all the Christmas cartoons.  It has a lot of old classic commercials like the Double mint gum twins and many others.

    Why are commercials from the 80s so much better with that grayed look and slightly foggy?

    I was a child of the 80s and never a Ronald fan. With all the clown stuff now imagine kids going through the woods and just seeing this clown all by himself just ice skating. Creepy! Lol.

    OMG this ad just took me back. For a few seconds I thought I was back in the 80's watching cartoons on channel 32 after school.

    There is indeed a christian message in this commercial……..one is with the others, while he expresses equal joy for Jesus as the others. Everyone appears to be doing so much better from where we are standing as we constantly fall. And in the end, He lifts us up and brings us home, despite His knowledge of our failures.

    You know for all the slack that McDonald's has taken for childhood obesity, Ronald McDonald commercials always encouraged activities. He'd have the kids dance, do sports, and play outside. I always loved these commercials because even though he was a restaurant mascot, rarely did we ever see the kid actually eating.

    Ronald put some McShrooms into the food and had the kids hallucinating that they were seeing animated deer.

    I love the ice skating commercial, it always gives me that special Christmas feeling. Growing up Christmas wasn't always something my sister and I looked forward to. When this commercial came on, I would call my sister into the living room, telling her a special treat for a little brat was on. That would always make her laug, that helped us feel better about Christmas. I just wish McDonalds would air this again, I can record it on my DVR, and play it for Michelle and my nephew. Thanks for posting it, truly thank you, it boosted my spirits.

    ah yes, what a beautiful sight. Kids going deep into unknown areas of the forest and running into some guy dressed as a clown who takes them skating with him, so bliss. And not at all disturbing.

    The theme of this commercial is, "No child left behind." 🙂

    and those kids were never seen again. some people claims that if you enter into that forest, and repeat "ronald, ronald, ronald", a ghostly clown will appear and take you away with him. the only protection you can trust, is a whopper. be safe. be beautiful. be responsable. always carry a whopper in winter time.
