Big Boy restaurants are changing their mascot from Big Boy to Dolly.\r\n \tIt's unclear whether this will be a temporary or permanent change.\r\n \tThe change comes with the news of a new menu item.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nBig Boy restaurants recently rolled out a new chicken sandwich, and with that new addition, they unveiled a long-forgotten character. One of their older characters, Dolly, will now be replacing their current iconic mascot that we've all come to know and love.\r\n\r\n"Dolly has been dreaming up this #chickensandwich for quite some time so .... Who is ready for tomorrow?! #bigcluckindeal" the official restaurant Twitter account says in a tweet.\u00a0\r\nBig Boy restaurants change their mascot... temporary or permanent?\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/ItsYourBigBoy\/status\/1279925705271369728\r\n\r\nDolly is a character that could be remembered from the Big Boy comic book series from the 1950s. She will now be serving as the official mascot to promote the restaurant's newest sandwich. We're not sure how long she's staying, but she is for now. Bob\u2019s Big Boy director of training Frank Alessandrini speaks to Fox News about this change.\r\n\r\nRELATED: Iconic Planters Mascot, Mr. Peanut, Dies At 104 In New Pre-Super Bowl Commercial\r\n\r\n\u201cWe are rolling out a brand-new chicken sandwich. We\u2019re calling it the best cluckin\u2019 chicken sandwich around, and Dolly, who has been with Big Boys since the 1950s\u00a0as far as we can go back with our comic books. We decided that she\u2019s going to be the star of this sandwich as Big Boy was the star of his double-decker sandwich.\u201d\r\nDolly takes the lead... for now\r\n\r\n\r\nThe director also notes that the company wanted \u201cto show that we\u2019re still moving forward. We recognize the times that we\u2019re in, hopefully, turning the corner in this pandemic and come out of it, but we want to set ourselves up for the future as well.\u201d\r\nWhile this appears to be a promotional change, Alessandrini speaks about it as if it's a permanent change to the company. \u201cIt is Dolly\u2019s time to shine now with our chicken sandwich,\u201d he says. \u201cSo, she\u2019s taken the forefront right now. She\u2019s in charge. The name will always be Big Boy, but as far as the logo, she\u2019s leading the charge, and we\u2019ll see when he comes back if he does.\u201d\r\nHow the Internet is reacting\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe change was met with a lot of backlash on Twitter. One person says "I don't think I will eat here now that the big boy is gone." Another writes, "You just lost me as a lifetime customer. The food at my local Bob\u2019s Big Boy isn\u2019t what it was back in the \u201960s, anyway. I go for the nostalgia (and the fudge cake sundae). Never even heard of heard of Dolly."\r\n\r\nHowever, there were also some customers that didn't really mind. "If you're pressed about a chicken sandwich changing mascots, you're a *say it with me* SNOOOOWFLAAAAAAKEEEEEEE," someone writes. Another says, "Look at all the boomers getting triggered in the comments, what snowflakes." \r\n\r\nWhat do you think of Big Boy's change?
