The Wink is the animated movement of Chuck E. Cheese's left eye in the signs on the valence above 1-Stage, 2-Stage, 3-Stage, and Road Stage shows.

They contain an image of Chuck E. Cheese, and originally contained the phrase, "In Pizza We Trust". This phrase was later replaced by a red and white ribbon. However, 4 winks at 4 Chuck E. Cheese 3-stage locations were completely painted over in the mid 1990's. They were in the Mobile, Huntsville, and Birmingham, Alabama, and Madison, Tennessee locations. The "colored wink", as it is called, is still in the Huntsville and Madison locations today.

In the early 90s, the wink played music while it winked. However, starting with the Spring Break Show in 1994, the music rarely played in shows, with it not appearing again until the May 2011 show, and again in the 40 Years of Fun shows in 2017.
