Adventures of Pioneer Pete

 AOPP   (Pioneer Chicken, 1978-1980)

™ and © 1978 Pioneer Chicken

Pioneer Chicken was another in a long line of Kentucky Fried Chicken imitators that didn’t quite make it, although it had a fairly healthy run for about 20 years. The few remaining restaurants are now independently owned and operated. When they were a chain, Pioneer took a cue from McDonald’s and Bob’s Big Boy by creating a cast of characters, and issuing a comic book series. It is unknown how many issues exist, but I know of three and each features generally comedic adventure stories for kids.
