Answer: Ronald McDonald is a clown character used as the primary mascot of the McDonald’s fast-food restaurant chain. Since his debut in 1963, the smiling clown has helped give McDonald’s a huge advantage among kids. In Japan, Ronald McDonald is known as Donald McDonald. A local businessman who helped open the first McDonald’s in the country decided that it would be easier to pronounce for the Japanese, according to “McDonald’s: Behind the Arches.” In China, out of respect for Ronald McDonald as an adult, children refer to him as Uncle McDonald.
