• A mutant created by the nasty trans fats that they make their MacChickens in. Some hair dopped into one of their deep fat fryers one night and that is how "Grimace" came about.
  • In the first cycle of McDonaldland commercials beginning in 1971, Grimace was the "Evil Grimace", with two pairs of arms with which to steal milkshakes. After that first campaign, the character was revised to be one of the "good guys", and his number of arms was reduced to two. According to McD According to the McDonald's website: “ Grimace is a big, loving, fuzzy purple fellow who is Ronald McDonald's best friend. He's sure Ronald is the world's ultimate authority on everything. While Grimace loves all McDonald's foods, he's absolutely crazy about milkshakes. Grimace is very enthusiastic and eager to try new things. His joyous spirit helps everyone overlook the fact he's a little slow and clumsy sometimes." According to Wiki: Grimace is a fantasy character, and not intended to be anything specific. However, ever since the character's introduction there has been much speculation (though much of it tongue-in-cheek) about his appearance. Because the majority of McDonald's characters more or less directly represent a food product sold at the restaurants (e.g., Mayor McCheese, Fry Guys, McNugget Buddies, etc.) many have naturally tried to guess as to what, if any, food product Grimace is supposed to represent. It is often suggested that he represents the contents of a milkshake. It has more recently been suspected that Grimace may actually be a taste bud, seeing as everything relates directly to food and that the association with a taste bud being Ronald's best friend would be an idealogical relationship. Grimace's "official" role, according to McDonald's, continues to be to represent the chain's milkshakes. However, he does this out of love for the taste, and not because he is in any way a shake-based creature himself. Early Grimace (Evil) with Jodie Foster!
  • I have taken his name and broke it down to it's bare components... Grim-Ace. His appearance is remarkably similar to the most popular of Aces in a deck of cards, the Ace of Spades. He is Spade shaped in appearance. The Grim part may be reflected in his purple (might it have been originally more blue???) coloring, showing either a sickly or worried conotation. Therefore it is my own personal conclusion that he is in all actuality a Pessimistic Spade.
  • I don't know but Ronald McDonald is very scary.
  • Hes a second cousin once removed from Barney the Dinasour.
  • He's the shape of a grease droplet coming from a quarter pounder.
  • many of the grimaces from grimace land
  • A distant relative of Barney.
  • He is the after-version of someone who ate at McDonald's every day (Don't let this happen to you!)
  • idk i think hes related to barney.
  • You know Grimace is about the only thing I actually like about Mc Donalds.And maybe the Hamburglar. He is an alien that came to help Ronald in the marketing department because many children are afraid of clowns.
  • Barney is The Grimaces love child, it was a big scandal in McDonaldland, that is why you never you hear of The Grimace anymore, there was a big cover up by Ronald McDonald and The Grimace is now leading a new life under a witness protection progam
  • Is he the weird purple thing that makes me think of nuggets?
  • I always thought it was a fuzzy blob of fat removed from Ronald McDonald's arteries.
  • I think he is a dinosaur.
  • He is just a big purple blob who loves milkshakes.
  • the best that I can come up with is that Grimace represents the way you feel after you chow down a macdonalds meal ... lol There MUST be a real answer to this though - i emailed Mac Donalds and never got a response.
  • He's the caricature of a typical Sick Donald's customer. Horribly overweight and sickly purple as the very nutrition he needs to live is being sucked out of him. You Have the following menu choices: • Crappy meal for the kids • McSicken sandwich • Big Crap with Big Crap sauce
  • Hey! Don't talk about my grandmother like that!! She took care of me when I was a McBaby!!;)
  • No, no. He's a taste bud everyone.
  • I've heard grimace is supposed to be an eggplant. A clear representation of the frequency in which eggplant makes an appearance in a mcdonalds dish.
  • He's the predecessor to Barney. Big, fat, stupid, 2 ton, purple dumb-ass that talks like a bumbling idiot!
  • grimace represents the sweet taste bud, that is why grimace represents all the desserts at mcdonalds. when you look under a microscope the sweet taste bud, it is with a purplish color and shaped like a tongue... that is why grimace looks and shape like that...
  • Uncontrollable acid reflux.
  • He is the sound everyone mcdonalds customer makes after eating a quarter pounder.
