CHICKEN CHARLIE OR CHICKEN CHARLIE’S



Inquiring minds would like to know how an Eskimo came to be the mascot of Chicken Charlie? To add more confusion, the postcard on the right bears testament that there was a Chicken Charlie’s restaurant in Kalamazoo, MI but with a different mascot. The two obviously bears no historical connection other than my assumption that 1) Chicken Charlie was not meant to be a food/restaurant character 2) it is a cheap souvenir or 3) an earlier attempt to market an Eskimo character from the present day “Arctic Circle” franchise. - Masud
