I can still hear the McDonald's jingle in my head... "you deserve a break today".

I found the King in the Burger King ads so creepy that I haven't eaten there since. Seriously.

Marketing people have to be right every now and then. Around 1970, sales at McDonald's had flattened. Note that "fast food" was still a relatively new phenomenon in much of the nation. Studies showed that burger places had a reputation of being dirty and unsanitary (the two are not necessarily mutually inclusive). So, although McDonald's was popular with teenagers, it still wasn't attracting the family market it was trying to break. Ray Kroc then instigated the creation of the "McDonald's is Clean" ad, which did it's job, and helped move fast food into the mainstream:

I wonder if Burger Chef had the same thing in mind as in trying to make the chain a family restaurant when they used the characters from Bil Keane's popular comic strip The Family Circus in their television ads back in the day ??  I think the ads came around in the late 1960s. As recently as six months ago the Family Circus/Burger Chef ads were on You Tube. I guess they have since been taken down since I can no longer find them there.

Rodney Allen Rippy and Jack in the Box.  A Classic.

OK, now I know why you didn't give any spoilers. Great commercial.
