Chuck E. Cheese is dropping it's animatronic "Munch’s Make Believe Band" in all but two locations and hopefully, my recurring nightmares go away too
· May 18, 2024 ·

This was my first live concert, or at least I thought it was at the time. Turns out, it was just some creepy animatronic robot band at Chuck E. Cheese.

Yes, the creepy robot band is finally breaking up, and you'll never actually have to say goodbye to them because Chuck E. Cheese, Helen Henny, Jasper T. Jowl, Mr. Munch, and Pasqually will likely haunt your dreams for the rest of time.

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.

Honestly, what took em so long?

I mean, you look at this and tell me it's not the creepiest thing you've ever seen.



Now, we've reported before on the planned demise of this band. It has something to do with a children's horror series that parodies them? I don't know. The whole thing is bizarre.

The band known for its stilted movements and blinking, shifty eyes, will be replaced by giant TV screens, digital dance floors and trampoline gyms just a few years after the chain temporarily closed a number of locations during the COVID-19 pandemic, followed by filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the summer of 2020 …

For now, the company is not saying what will happen to the hundreds of animatronic figures once they exit the stage.

Oh, I know what's going to happen to them.

They're going to continue to haunt my dreams forever, and ever, and ever!
