1955-1961: Speedee

McDonald’s first logo featured Speedee, a jaunty, pudgy, winking little chef with a hamburger for a head and a chef’s hat. He holds a sign reading “I’m Speedee” just to make sure everyone’s on the same page. Wax paper emblazoned with this logo was used to wrap burgers, hence the “Thank You.”
