McDonald’s has introduced its newest Happy Meal character named “Happy.” Unfortunately, customers’ reaction to “Happy” has been anything but happy. Try fear.

The creature is box-shaped with Gumby-like arms, eyes popping out of the top of its head and a big mouth filled with large teeth. It’s intended to promote healthier Happy Meals for kids.

While adults may not like it, McDonald’s hopes the character gets a friendlier reaction from children. The mascot makes its debut in Happy Meals on Friday.
