A major McDonald’s character made a triumphant return to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade this year – and fans are loving it! McDonald’s lovable purple monster, Grimace, was one of the characters included in McDonald’s 2021 Thanksgiving Day parade float – alongside his buddies Ronald McDonald and the Hamburgular. It’s been a lot of years since casual consumers have seen McDonald’s roll out Grimace and Hamburgular in a major way like this, and naturally, it’s stirring up all kinds of nostalgia, and even more jokes.
Check out what viewers are saying about the return of McDonald’s Grimace (and Hamburgular) below!
Gotta Respect the McDedication
I watched the parade and thought to myself;
“Good on them for sticking by Ronald despite clowns not being popular since the 1930’s”
Not to mention Grimace; a husky purple piece of blubber representing a fast food chain that had documentaries made about their unhealthy food

McDonald’s is more dedicated to its brand than most. Times don’t change everything…
Wished I’d Seen It…
Kinda wish I watched the Thanksgiving day parade to see Grimace finally released from cryostasis. pic.twitter.com/jh1eHB9lI8

People who didn’t watch Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade live are now experiencing big regrets after looking at social media.

Friendly reminder that Grimace from McDonalds Happy Meals is a giant tastebud.
