Guess – is Chuckecheese a rat or a mouse?
If you said either one, you’re right! He used to be a rat with a tail, right up until 1995. This was an issue because children kept pulling his tail, so the company changed him into a mouse with no tail.
The restaurant was actually almost named Rick Rat’s. Luckily, they had hired a good PR firm that was horrified with the Rick Rat name and ix-nayed it immediately.
Who would ever go to a food place with the word “Rat” in the name?
Especially with the dark machine-like atmosphere inside a Chuckecheese, anything with the word rat would be a huge disgusting turnoff for anyone with any sort of health standard.
The PR firm suggested the name Chuck E. Cheese, with the E in the middle standing for Entertainment, and the Cheese part standing for the pizza staple of the chain.
Chuck the rat also used to smoke cigars! Not exactly the best role model for children. He smoked his last cigar in 1980 to support a Smoke Out smoking quitting campaign.
A funny fact about Chuckecheese was that the animal playing band was created for the parents.
The Chuckecheese creators thought the band would keep the parents entertained, and provide a “free” bonus the parents would appreciate since everything else in the restaurant, including the food, tokens and arcade games cost extra money.
In addition to the other non-family friendly things mentioned above, 70% of the Chuck E Cheese restaurants also serve alcohol, likely to appease and sedate the parents bringing their screaming children to the joint.
Next time you go to a Chuck E Cheese, you’ll know all its crazy backstory, and you can share it with your friends.
In the meantime, help the chain out and take its chuckcheese.com/feedback online survey so it can continue to innovate and improve for the future.
