For those who grew up going to Chuck E. Cheese’s, the animatronics display will always have a fond place in your childhood memories. Rain or shine, you could count on Chuck E. and his band to be up on the stage delivering a legendary performance. The animatronics display remains a nostalgic nod to decades past, but we believe it is time to usher in a new era of Chuck E. Cheese.

At the end of the day, Chuck E. Cheese hopes to deliver an amazing entertainment experience for kids, and we feel that our live Chuck E. experience really delivers that for kids who have much higher expectations of realism and special effects. Chuck E. dances and poses for photos with children in this hourly interactive event, and kids of today still leave Chuck E. Cheese with an iconic experience. We really believe in the value of our characters and they will continue to be an essential part of our brand as we move forward. And not to worry, Chuck E. and his friends have no plans to stop producing new music anytime soon! Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel to see the latest songs from Chuck E. Cheese and Munch’s Make Believe Band.

However, there is no need to be sad- The animatronics will continue to be in our store locations for a while longer. Currently the animatronics have only been removed as part of our remodel for 7 stores in San Antonio and Kansas City. There are NO plans to remove any additional animatronics anytime soon.


Chuck E. and his band have certainly evolved a lot since their debut in the 1970s! Which character do you think has made the biggest transformation?
The “T” in Jasper’s middle name stands for Tennessee!

Chuck E.’s full name is Charles Entertainment Cheese.Pasqually not only plays drums for the band, but he is the lead pizza chef of the restaurant as well.
Helen Henny began as a guest star in the band, but her singing skills were so great that she was later made into a full time member!

In addition to her singing, Helen really knows how to rock out on the guitar.
