I recently removed, once again, trivia unrelated to the subject of the article. Per WP:Trivia and the essay WP:Handling trivia, including random mention in parody or other media is inappropriate. Just because there was a passing reference in Robot Chicken or Family Guy episode does not mean it belongs in the article. --Jeremy (blah blah • I did it!) 23:32, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
Who is Dr. Berlin Fries?
This guy sounds made-up, even by McDonaldland standards. I realize there is already a comment asking for source, but this one in particular needs one. A guy that speaks French with an English accent and German-referencing name. If this is real, McDonald's should fire its ad agency. 280.status.net/douglasawh (talk) 22:15, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
From what I have been able to research, some McDonald's locations, at least into the 1980s, featured a McDonaldland Park, which was adjacent to the restaurant. Unlike the "Playplace" found in the front of many McDonald's restuarants, the McDonaldland Park was more like a small, actual park and featured equipment, statues, etc. resembling the McDonaldland characters. I personally remember one such park located directly behind a McDonald's on Orchard Street in Boise, Idaho. However, this is a fenced-off overgrown field today. It would be interesting to see if any of these have been preserved in any way.Cascade1988 (talk) 04:59, 25 January 2015 (UTC)Cascade1988
Original research and trivia
This article badly needs to be cleaned up. I guess it was edited by a fan or enthusiast but it's not very encyclopedic right now. Much of the content is original research, trivia, or badly sourced. Some of the content is unverifiable and should be removed. I've made a few edits but I think more work needs to be done. FuriouslySerene (talk) 17:11, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
