The CU 1-Stage, or Chuck E.'s Make Believe Band, debuted in late 2010. It is the first new stage since the Studio C Cappa, which came out in 2004, and the first one with all five characters since the Road, 1- and 2-Stages. It features the animatronics and certain props from the 3-Stage. This stage was originally planned to replace the 3-Stage nationwide, but has only been installed in three locations: Whitehall, Pennsylvania (2010), Springfield, Illinois (early 2011), and Columbus, Georgia (late 2011). It is possible that this was stopped due to the Circles of Light stage being made in 2012.
The stage is rectangular and also has curtains and features. From left to right, the characters are Chuck E. Cheese, Helen Henny, Mr. Munch, Jasper T. Jowls, and Pasqually. Behind them are two television screens with a park background, all under a valence that reads "Chuck E's Make Believe Band."
Whitehall, PA was the first CU 1-Stage, with the background being at night, and Chuck standing a black pedestal. Currently, it's the only one of the 3 to feature an Avenger shirt and the Rockstar jeans, and the blue explosion drumhead for Pasqually, as well as lacking Jasper's hat.
Springfield, Illinois was the second location to receive the stage. It is the last location in Illinois with CEI animatronics, Jasper's Beach Bear guitar, and Pasqually's swirl drumhead. It is also one the last two locations in state with the Cool Chuck outfit. Springfield also features Munch's older latex shoes.
Columbus, Georgia was the third and final location to receive the stage. It is the only CU 1-Stage to be much lower to the ground than its two predecessors, as well as having a unique barrel for Jasper. Pasqually also lacks an apron, and has a solid white drumhead.
Springfield and Columbus both have daytime backgrounds.
