The Great Root Bear by Pokelai The Great Root Bear by Pokelai
The first mascot of the first fast-food restaurant that I remember, there's a standalone A&W restaurant that I used to visit during my childhood, unfortunately it will be demolished for upgrade soon...I should visit other A&W restaurants more if I can find them...

Interesting if they still use the bear down there.  He originated up in Canada in the 70's.

Prior to him, A&W once had a line of burgers they called "The Burger Family" that included statues of the 'family' that were placed above the restaurant.  There was the Papa Burger, the Mama Burger, the Teen Burger and the Baby Burger.  The US stores had them for a while but they've made a comeback again up in Canada a decade ago, along with another favorite, Chubby Chicken.  Sadly the American restaurants (separate from the Canadian ones) don't offer these items anymore.

A lot of the former Burger Family statues have found their way in all parts of the continent, often repainted and representing other restaurants or even playgrounds.  Do a Google Image search and you'll see what I mean!
