The Pizza Time Players are the animatronic characters that performed on stage at Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza Time Theatre restaurants starting in 1977. The original band members were: Chuck E. Cheese, Crusty the Cat (who was retired in 1978 and was replaced by Mr. Munch), Jasper T. Jowls, Pasqually, The Warblettes, and a special guest star. In 1978, The Warblettes were replaced by The Mopsey Sisters, only to be brought back the following year. Soon after the company went bankrupt in 1983 and was bought out by ShowBiz Pizza Place, they discontinued the guest stars and kept the current guest star, Helen Henny as a permanent member of the band. The Pizza Time Players first appeared at the company's first restaurant in San Jose, California. The band was a hit. During Concept Unification, the Pizza Time Players concept was later modified to become Munch's Make Believe Band.
The last showtape created for the Pizza Time Players was the CEC TV Classics 1991 showtape, which was made for Canada only in replacement of the American Pride '91 showtape as the tape wouldn't be relevant to a foreign audience.
