    • Thats so interesting! Did some google researching and there are some similar theories that are suggesting the same thing. 

      Had a ton of fun reading the wikipedia entry for the guy:

      Grimace – Grimace is a large, purple character who was first introduced in November 1971 as the “Evil Grimace”. In his first two appearances, he was depicted with two pairs of arms with which to steal milkshakes and sodas. “Evil” was soon dropped from his moniker, and he was reintroduced in 1972 as one of the good guys. In 1974, he was redesigned, going from two pairs of arms to the single pair he has today. His role continued to grow, and by the mid 1970s, he was a major character in McDonaldland. Commercials and merchandise generally portray Grimace as a well-meaning simpleton whose clumsy antics provide a comic foil to Ronald McDonald. The character was retained after the streamlining of the characters in the 1980s, and soon details of Grimace’s background and family life began to emerge. His Uncle O’Grimacey first appeared in 1986 [see below] and would visit only one month per year, around St. Patrick’s Day, bringing Shamrock Shakes. Additional family were revealed in a McDonaldland VHS tape “The Legend of Grimace Island”: He has an unnamed mom, an unnamed dad, a grandma named “Winky”, a great, great grandma named Jenny Grimace, and might be brothers with “King Gonga,” who is the king of all Grimaces. In “Grimace’s Oddysey”, Grimace is portrayed as a ham radio enthusiast who uses a homemade transmitter made from a colander. Grimace’s physical appearance is difficult to describe, even for the other denizens of McDonaldland. Ronald says Grimace has his mother’s eyes, while Birdie says he has his father’s prominent chin, and Hamburglar jokingly says he has his Grandma Winky’s fat ankles. Despite his massive girth, Grimace took ballet classes. Grimace was played by Patti Saunders (1971–84) and voiced by Frank Welker in the commercials, Larry Moran in some commercials, and by Kevin Michael Richardson in “The Wacky Adventures of Ronald McDonald.”
