The Professor is a bearded scientist-type character in a lab coat in 1971-1987 McDonald's commercials. He served as McDonaldland's local inventor and researcher. In 1983 (the year the Chicken McNuggets became a menu item), he invented live talking, delicious food items called the McNugget Buddies.

The Professor was portrayed by Lou Wagner, and voiced by Andre Stojka.


In the 1970s, he was a minor character who rarely spoke (usually in a high pitch voice). He had brown hair, which became more gray overtime by the late 70s, wore a white lab coat, and brown trousers.

Around the 1980s, the Professor was a major character, and was redesigned to include a lightbulb-topped helmet, round spectacles, and a mustache. His pants began to have a blue flannel appearance.

Though the character was dropped during the streamlining of the characters in the mid-1980s, he did appear in McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure where he invents a rocket-ship to take Ronald and his friends to Magical Moon and appeared in M.C. Kids.
