McDonald’s has brought back its past loveable character Hamburglar, however it appears he’s had a revamp.
Gone is the puppet-esque, chubby cheeked guy. Instead he’s been replaced by what The Verge believes is reminiscent of a dad who is too eager with his Halloween costume.
He’s a burger flipping thief, with a family now.
Wait, is this who we think it is??! https://t.co/rc9xhQrAUi

He’s no longer this guy.
With ‘Hamburglar’ trending on Twitter, it appears the Internet is torn between wanting to bed this guy and wanting to throw a cheeseburger in his face.
Thank you new Hamburglar. I always wanted a fast food mascot who looked like he plays trombone in a ska band pic.twitter.com/Vk70zvs5Aw

In a statement to Mashable, Joel Yashinsky, McDonald’s’ Vice President of U.S. Marketing, said: “”We felt it was time to debut a new look for the Hamburglar after he’s been out of the public eye all these years. He’s had some time to grow up a bit and has been busy raising a family in the suburbs and his look has evolved over time.”
