One thing I miss about the old VHS recorder in the Greg McShea family household is playing holiday TV shows I taped over the years. We used to watch those shows every year, commercials and all. One year, when I recorded "A Charlie Brown Christmas" off the TV network, there was a very cute TV commercial for McDonald's.

The commercial was entitled, "Runaway" and featured Ronald McDonald and a little girl named Lindsay. It had such a nice positive message, when we watched Charlie Brown on the tape, we always watched this commercial as well.

Here it is, and you'll see what I mean.
