The hamburgers that had two seperate areas, to keep the cold cold, and the hot hot. They were not McDLQ or McFeast, and they were not in the 70's, they were the 80's. Around 1985, that is when I worked there and we were still putting the sticker(with picture of sandwich) on the styrofoam box. Later the picture came imprinted on the styrofoam.

if you see any old commercials for this mdlt youll notice that the guy in it is "costanza" from seinfeld-younger and with more hair-but its him all right!

I worked at McDonalds in 1985, and I do remember that damn McDLT and the huge boxes! Not very earth friendly! Remember the shrimp salad?

I worked at McD's when they introduced the McDLT. One day my job was to stand out in the parking lot with a McDLT in a box covered with plastic wrap to show it to the customers in the drive-thru line!

I loved the McDLT. Just didn't care for the big honking container it came in.

Jumping from the Frito page to this one, I found several TV commercials with Mac Tonight from Oct., 1987 (McDLT was mentioned). One, from WNBC in New York. Appears to be an actor wearing a large moon head, along with rest of costume. Offered were Mac Tonight dark glasses for $1.29, plus required purchase of one large sandwich or salad. Check out eBay also. There should be other Mac Tonight items on the market. Some said that Mac Tonight was a mock of Ray Charles (dark glasses, some facial features, and the piano) in physical appearance. Debatable. Also, from the Saturday morning cartoon vault, an early McDonald Land commercial with Ronald, Hamburglar and the cop, Big Mac. This aired on "The Bugaloos" (10/10/70, NBC).
