When redesigning Grimace, the goal was to find a balance between lovable and absolutely repulsive.

And by the way, what is Grimace supposed to be?!? Does anyone know?

In his original incarnation, Grimace was the Purple Milkshake Monster. He also had six arms. This didn't test very well with audiences in the 1970s.
I did some sample comic scripts a few years ago based on a reimagining of McDonaldland. I think you'd like them. You can view them here:
"Justice Served on a Toasted Kaiser" and "Cheeseburglar Origin: Behold, the Power of Cheese".
