Hot Fudge band (Clawson, MI)


Hot Fudge was an animatronic band that was tested in six Pizza Time Theatre locations. The character names were different at each location and names were chosen in local contests. The Hot Fudge shows were only installed in the following locations:

  • Clawson, Michigan (Characters: Mona, Seymore, Mr. Kootch)
  • Warren, Michigan
  • Okemos, Michigan
  • Warwick, Rhode Island
  • Danvers, Massachusetts
  • Ann Arbor, Michigan


The animatronics created for the Hot Fudge stage were created by Elnicky Enterprises. They were temporarily installed into new Pizza Time Theatre locations between 1983 and 1984 during a time when there was a shortage of Balcony Stage animatronics for their restaurants during Pizza Time Theatre's bankruptcy period[1].
