Charles Entertainment "Chuck E." Cheese[1] is the anthropomorphic mouse mascot of the Chuck E. Cheese's chain of family entertainment centers.

Backstory[edit]

Chuck's official backstory is that he is an orphaned mouse who does not know his own birthday. His orphanage was called St. Marinara's orphanage[2]. To make up for never having a birthday party of his own, he hosts parties for children. After winning a Pong tournament, Chuck moved to New York and started working as a singer at an Italian restaurant, where he also met and befriended a musically-inclined chef named Pasqually. Eventually, he moved to California and created his own restaurant franchise, with Pasqually becoming his star chef and later joining his band.[3]

Pizza Time Theater era[edit]

Chuck was originally found in Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza Time Theatre, a restaurant founded by Nolan Bushnell (founder of Atari) in 1977. An animatronic Chuck E. performed.
