    Chuck E. Cheese's was founded by the one and only Nolan Bushnell in 1977 and Chuck E. himself was 'transformed' into a mouse (He was originally a cigar-smoking Bronx rat) in 1995 when the showtapes (the tapes for the animatronic shows) were being produced by Disney, what were considered by CEC fans as 'garbage'!

    "Down in Fraggle Rock. (Dunt!)"- (Last part of Fraggle Rock theme.)
