"The Legend of McDonaldland Loch" is a lost 2003 episode of The Wacky Adventures of Ronald McDonald. Released to purchase from 2003 until 2005, there is a substantial rarity placed on this VHS. To date, four videos and over 40 screenshots/images of the episode have surfaced online.
The Wacky Adventures of Ronald McDonald is a 1998-2003 cartoon produced by the ka-chew! division of Klasky Csupo, consisting of six episodes. Each episode was released on separate VHS tapes, one of which only being available for purchase online in the mid-2000s.
Since the six volumes' releases, the first five have turned up online in the form of VHS rips. However, the final volume has since become an incredible rarity, with no copies of the tape having turned up for years (though several copies have allegedly been sold on eBay and the like throughout the last decade; this, however, has not been confirmed). Titled "The Legend of McDonaldland Loch" (originally titled "The Monster O' McDonaldland Loch"), the episode was made available for purchase on Klasky Csupo's cooltoons.com (now cooltoons2.com) store on Jan 30, 2003.
According to the Wayback Machine, the tape was available for purchase all the way up until at least March 6, 2005, though for some reason, it appears that not many people ended up buying a copy, skyrocketing its value years later (as it is now practically impossible to track down).
As the endless wait for the tape to be uploaded continues, the episode's plot has been revealed: "When the gang goes to visit Sundae's Scottish terrier cousin, they get more than they bargained for when they run into Simon, the legendary sea serpent of McDonaldland Loch!" Kudos to Lost Media Wiki contributor "Joey!" for releasing the plot!
Meanwhile, the real Loch Ness Monster befriends Birdie, who desperately tries to keep its existence a secret.
On December 20, 2014, an anonymous poster of the board /co/ on 4chan claimed to have a legitimate copy of the tape.
"If it really is lost, its neat that I found it or something. Well, by found I mean my older brother looked up to see how much the whole set was worth, and could not find a set of 6."
The anonymous user posted several photos of the tape and its cover, in addition to low quality photos of the tape playing on a "half-broken" CRT TV screen. The anonymous user has received offers upwards of fifteen-thousand dollars for the tape on the condition that it is not digitally uploaded. On May 9th, 2015, the anonymous owner claimed to rip the tape to his PC, willing to sell it and then upload it to YouTube shortly after.
Throughout June 2015, Lost Media Wiki user "Inklingboy" leaked several screenshots of the tape, both proving there are multiple individuals in possession of this video, and spurring rumours that the video would soon surface. Following hundreds of pleas for the release of some form of video evidence, Inklingboy leaked two segments of the ending of the VHS on June 28, 2015. The videos can be viewed on his Youtube channel, with specific instructions to never duplicate or reupload the segments.
On 7/12/15 A Youtube user by the name of "glbracer" has uploaded a unlisted new 18 second clip. Making a possible 3rd holder for the tape.
On 8/14/15 A Youtube user by the name of "Austin Solom" has uploaded a unlisted new First 4 Minutes.
