Unbeknownst to me until last weekend, Burger King is raising a big fuss to celebrate the 55th year of its Whopper sandwich. I’ve been known to patronize their restaurant from time to time, so imagine my delight when I saw that they’re splashing their old logos all over their food packaging. Below are scans I took recently, featuring vintage Burger King logos of the past:
This is the original Burger King logo, and dates from the around very beginning of the franchise — once known as Insta-Burger King — in 1955 all the way through the 1960s. You can get a larger version here.
Here’s the next version of the mascot — apparently also known as Kurger Bing according to Wikipedia — which debuted in 1971. He lasted until the late ’70s, when he was replaced by the more realistic-looking Marvelous Magical Burger King, who ruled over the Burger King Kingdom. The larger version of this is here. Sorry for the imperfections in the middle — this was scanned from a bag.
