On the heels of a lawsuit that claims Chuck E. Cheese restaurant games are illegal gambling devices, a second lawsuit filed in Nevada alleges that Chuck is a “drunken lout who is not a real mouse but is instead a man dressed up as a Norway rat with a prosthetic tail.”
The lawsuit also questions the quality of pizza served at the chain’s more than 500 restaurants and claims that the Chuck E. Cheese animatronic band actually lip syncs all of its content.
Attorneys filed the lawsuit, Betsy Deebles v. Charles Edward Cheese, Monday in Las Vegas.
It is widely believed that members of the animatronic Chuck E. Cheese band are behind the lawsuit, apparently unhappy with royalties received from past performances. When contacted, Mr. Munch and Jasper Jowls, two of the singers in the band, declined to comment. Pasqually was out of the country on a solo tour and could not be reached.
