Things change as we get older.  That's a fact that we all have to live with, but it's still hard to say goodbye to some things that we grew up on.

As you grow up, some of the things that we took comfort in as kids go away.  That's just part of growing up, but that doesn't mean that it's not sad.

What is Chuck E. Cheese?

Chuck E. Cheese is a pizzeria/arcade where kids are encouraged to be kids.  It's a place where they can play and have fun while eating pizza and winning prizes.  As a kid, this was like the ultimate place to go with your friends.  Whether it was for a birthday party, to celebrate a good report card, or just somewhere for parents to take their kids to let them have some fun, Chuck E. Cheese has always been a treat.

Chuck E. Cheese is changing the way they do things

The Chuck E. Cheese that we know and love is changing though.  If you've ever gone there, you know that not only is there pizza and arcade games, but they always used to put on a show with an animatronic band.  The band is called "Munch's Make Believe Band." The band was made up of Chuck E. Cheese was the master of ceremonies, Mr. Munch on the keyboard, Jasper T. Jowls played guitar, Helen Henny sang, and Pasqually was on the drums.

Sadly, it looks as though they're breaking up.

Chuck E. Cheese is getting rid of Munch's Make-Believe Band

The announcement was made that Chuck E. Cheese would be getting rid of the animatronic band in every restaurant in New York and all across the country, except one.  The restaurant in Northridge, California will still have the band perform there every day.  They will be removing them from all other restaurants across the country.

The reasons for getting rid of them include things like vandalism and the cost of keeping them running.  It just got too much to have them perform the way they should.
