Separated at birth?

Today, after my son's last soccer game of the season, we took a celebratory trip to McDonald's for lunch. The Happy Meal toys for boys are a promotional tie-in to the movie "Astro Boy" (which I had no idea existed until this trip to the Golden Arches).

When I pulled the toy out of the plastic bag, I couldn't help but notice that Astro Boy bears a striking resemblance to another restaurant-related icon: Big Boy.

They do have the same last name. Perhaps they are related.


  1. I miss Big Boy! Maybe Astro Boy is his new job!

  2. Looks like he switched from the Big Boy burgers to health food and now he's able to lose the suspenders. Dude's all cocky about his six pack.
