Depending on who’s counting, Joe Maggard was the eighth or ninth person to have the honor of officially portraying Ronald McDonald. (The first, if you’re looking for some pop culture trivia, was Willard Scott, from the Today show.) Maggard filled Ronald’s big red shoes from 1995 until 2007. And nowadays you can find him chilling in Las Vegas, occasionally donning the famous clown costume at local carnivals, and helping kids (he says with a straight face) learn the importance of healthy eating. He’s a colorful guy, who can use some colorful language.
