I approve. Especially imagining Grimace Knows wrappers.

My nephews, aged 10 and 4, do not know who Grimace is. Likewise, they don't know the Hamburglar, Birdie, Mayor McCheese, Big Mac, Captain Crook or the Gobble-ins.
Sid and Marty Krofft killed McDonaldland. Overly-zealous health nuts have purged the characters from advertising. Only Ronald remains, but probably not for long.
Kind of sad.
First they came for Joe Camel,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a smoker.
Then they came for Grimace,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Big Mac eater.
Apparently, as a toddler i saw a commercial for McDonald's that had something called Fry Kids in it. For a while afterwards i would freak out when my parents took the car into the car wash, would scream about fry kids, point out the window at those fringed floppy things that spin around and beat your car clean, and then cry in terror.
I for one am glad this shit is off the TV.
