The Evolution of Fast Food Burger Chain Logos: The Video

The Evolution of Fast Food Burger Chain Logos: The Video

I just had so much gosh darn fun putting together my retrospective of fast food burger chain logos that I decided to turn it into a YouTube slideshow. Because some people just love slideshows. And as a special bonus I included audio extracts from vintage TV ads for some of the chains, like McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Dairy Queen, Arby's, Sonic, Jack in the Box, Hardee's, Carl's Jr., and Checkers/Rally's. Enjoy!

Auction Finds, Ephemera
Riding the wave of popularity brought about by the Batman television show, DC Comics took the opportunity to cash in on the Caped Crusader's new fan base. One of the more interesting Batman and Robin artifacts from that era was All Star's Slam Bang Vanilla Ice Cream from 1966. Here are a few outstanding pieces of ephemera related to the ice cream -- a well-preserved product box and a large paper ad. Note that at this point the official corporate name for DC was still National Periodical Publications, Inc. For more auction finds, click here.
