    Ronald McDonald Official Costume and Manual (McDonald's, c. 1970's). In every state and in countries all over the world there are official Ronald McDonalds who make public appearances at events like grand openings, parades, and hospitals, to name a few. Ronald McDonald's yellow jumpsuit has been his trademark attire since 1965 and remained relatively the same over the next five decades. In this lot is an original yellow jumpsuit in the style used for the years 1971 and 1972. This early design is notable for its three french fry bag pockets, extra wide red zippered placket and large silkscreened Golden Arches logo on the back. Along with it is a pair of red and white striped leggings. This suit was custom made for Ronald's appearances at the corporate headquarters in Oakbrook, IL and may have been a back-up costume as it shows very little use. Made of durable heavyweight material, it measures approximately 51" tall x 36" wide. Also in this lot is an official 1974 Ronald McDonald and How manual. This was published by the McDonald's Corporation as a guide for those lucky few chosen to portray Ronald. Inside it are details on how to be Ronald McDonald such as how to apply his clown make-up, tips on making personal appearances and even a collection of approved jokes. With the 9.75" x 8.5" vinyl bound 3-ring binder manual is a partially used can of white face paint and a photo of the suit in use. Some small stains on the suit and a few stuck pages in the manual; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
