McDonald's wanted to cash in on the nostalgia wave at the end of the 80's by bringing together a group of TV icons from the 50's & 60's for a few spots, two of which are shown twice in this montage. How about this dinner group?:
June Cleaver & Eddie Haskell (Barbara Billingsley & Ken Osmond, Leave it to Beaver).
Maxwell Smart (Don Adams, Get Smart).
Grandpa Munster (Al Lewis, The Munsters).
Jed Clampett (Buddy Ebsen, Beverly Hillbillies).
Gilligan (Bob Denver, Gilligan's Island).
Admittedly, I don't remember seeing these spots the first time around, and the ads represented some of Buddy Ebsen's last work. Barbara Billingsley had been in cartoons, working on Jim Henson's Muppet Babies at the time, and I think Don Adams was doing a cable show, Check It Out!, around this period, since Inspector Gadget was out of production and between series.
Somehow, it just didn't work.
