** Pizzacam. He's an antrophamorphic camera in Pasqually's speaker box, who replaced Looney Bird during concept unification. Because he's rarely used in shows, most locations have removed him entirely. If you're lucky enough to find a location that still has their Pizzacam installed, he still pops up every once in a while, but for the most part he's never used. And since he's just a prop character, his appearances in shows are trivial anyway.

Chuck E. Cheese's, originally referred to as Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza Time Theatre, was founded in 1977 by Creator/{{Atari}} founder Creator/NolanBushnell. It was officially labeled as the first family restaurant to integrate food, animated entertainment, and an indoor arcade. Pizza Time Inc., began to suffer financially in the mid-eighties due in part to TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 before its purchase by rival Showbiz Pizza, Inc. Under the name Showbiz Pizza Time Inc. (currently CEC Entertainment,) both concepts were run side-by-side for several years. Eventually the decision was made to convert all locations into Chuck E. Cheese's restaurants,[[note]]In the U.S. only, at least. In Mexico and the Middle East, they kept the Showbiz Pizza name there instead, possibly because it was easier to pronounce in both Spanish and Arabic.[[/note]] i which meant [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXCrVNEwGxM replacing the cosmetics on the Rock-Afire Explosion animatronics]] in order to [[DolledUpInstallment turn the characters into Chuck E. Cheese and his friends]] [[note]]Rock-Afire Explosion animatronics are still in operation in various parts of the United States including an operational Billy Bob's Wonderland in Barboursville, WV[[/note]]. A good handful of these are still around; Any time you walk into a Chuck E. Cheese's with an animatronic show split up onto three stages, that store used to be a Showbiz Pizza.

* TheArtifact: Starting with CU they introduced a winking head of Chuck E on the center stage valance. It orginally had it's own music but by 94 the music has all but been dropped (Despite briefly coming back in 20111) The wink is still programmed in however

* BarBrawl: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tD5wxx_kmso It happens more often than one would expect from a children's pizzeria]]. Alcohol, heightened emotions, limited access to games, and sources of stresses - both within and outside the restaurant - are all contributing factors.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Anyone who looks into the restaurant's history will be surprised to know how different things were when it was still Pizza Time Theater: there were [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters a wider variety of characters]], different [[ArtEvolution character designs]] and sometimes [[CharacterizationMarchesOn personalities]], and stage designs that would seem unorthodox to any kid born after TheEighties (the original restaurant didn't even have a stage, but a portrait show).
