The Day the Music Died: Chuck E. Cheese Pulls the Plug on Animatronic Band


Chuck E. Cheese -- the delight of every child, the bane of every parent's existence. It's basically a casino for kids, run by a giant rat, but at least it had that rocking animatronic band.


Oh. Wait.


More from Billboard:

To the likely delight of parents everywhere — as well as some seriously freaked-out kids — the Munch’s Make Believe Band is headed to the scrap heap. The animatronic group that has been a staple at the Chuck E. Cheese pizza and arcade chain for four decades is going into a permanent deep freeze by the end of this year due to changing tastes among the ball pit set.

According to The New York Times, the mechanical animal band fronted by singers Chuck E. Cheese and Helen Henny, with Jasper T. Jowls on guitar, Mr. Munch on keyboards and Pasqually on drums, will be removed from all but two locations (Los Angeles and Nanuet, N.Y.) of the chain’s more than 400 U.S. locations amidst what CEO David McKillips described as its “most aggressive transformation” to date.

We have to wonder how games and films like 'Five Nights at Freddy's' and 'Willy's Wonderland' influenced this decision, as both feature animatronic creatures who come alive and do very horrible things.

That being said, this writer was always terrified of the animatronic band, so good riddance.


For some, yes.

For others, nightmares.


Emphasis on the used to part.


That was short lived, no?

We parents all won.

+1000 for the 'American Pie' reference.

Except two locations.


That makes one of us.

You were not.

Will save them a lot of money in therapy, though.

We laughed out loud at this.


And He is merciful.

All of us in the end.

RIP Rat Casino Band, you will be missed.
