We told you guys a couple of weeks ago. We had some big news that was happening in our lives and on the show. We will get to that story in the second Alec. Weird already funny if that's what we're talking about those so dramatically, but go ahead. There was a reason people were asking you like Oh. Hey, what's the big surprise? Jesse having a baby. Like you actually got a message from Riana that was like. Hey Everyone's like Kinda worried. They were mad about the pregnancy thing whatever I was like no dude.

We need one baby to be born in the states. No we, we're actually moving the entire media companies to Austin Texas. This has been in the works for while. Anybody who's a fan of both of the shows are all ninety. We host now at this point. We've been to Austin seven out of the last nine months the only two months. We weren't there was actually. During, the pandemic couldn't flight in yeah, it seems. That Austin has become a gigantic media town to Kota Myers there. Obviously, he's one of our Co. hosts are on drinking from time to time, and then his show front toward enemy is also owner media network. He's Outta there, obviously jared and black rifle, and all those guys out of there and We just kept going back to interview celebrities whether it was Alex Jones or Barnes Courtney or the Post Malone thing like. We always ended up in Austin Yeah. Weird signs were pointing there as well so anytime. We were talking to anyone we'd be like. Oh, where are you based or sponsors or anything? They're like Oh Austin Austin Austin and it was too many. Arrows that we had just. Advertise. We have an advertising agency that is out of their Google and facebook are out of Austin Texas as well now. We are trying to improve the Youtube obviously. and. You guys have been doing a great job at its and hopefully. The shadow ban will end at some point. There's been some things that we've learned over the last year with it. Obviously. Some guests we've had on have been controversial, but some even the word revolution I guess got flagged for the name of the show. So there's meetings we have to take to to correct the shit. All of it is is in Austin. Our Internet's. Crazy as it sounds, goes out all the fucking time here. It shouldn't happen Google fiber there. We're running too many shows out of one place one building. That's we need better-quality. As, we move forward with this company because it keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger, we're somewhere in the neighborhood of like fourteen million downloads a month for all of these shows across the board and bigger guests be in and out of Austin, more and more and more, the.

"That's comfortable. You could wear fe shield if you want. There's all sorts of options out there and I think right now. The airlines should be enforcing this. They should be even the perception of it is important, and they've changed their filters. They're doing lots of things to keep you safe I don't believe flying a plane if people are wearing masks and there's reasonable precautions or that. That dangerous on the other hand, if people are completely ignoring the rules, and they're walking to the bathroom, drinking a soda and sneezing without wearing a mask that does seem to increase my danger and look I. Get the politics of it why the airlines don't WanNa make hard and fast rules, but I think as a society. Maybe we should make some hard and fast rules about being nice to each other. Last thing on the airlines there are. A chunk of investors out there who look at the airlines, particularly with their stocks knocked down to the extent that they have been, and they think to themselves will look. They're gonNA survive. They're going to get through this. We this is a necessity in our society. So why not take? A shot with one of these stocks. Why not buy a few shares? Because it's a value, play right now. Do you look at the airline stocks as value place no value trap, it's a danger you should be looking at should be red lights and crocodiles jumping up, and whatever could scare you away because airlines could go bankrupt. That doesn't mean they're going to go out of business because we've talked about this with cruise lines, the banks don't particularly want own cruise ships and they don't want to own airplanes they need. These routes need to be flown, so what could? Could Happen and they're taking steps for that not to happen, but if this goes on for an extra long period of time, they'll fire chapter eleven. They'll get out of some of their debt. The same people will be in charge. Some executives will get bonuses and shareholders. We'll get wiped out. That is how it goes, so if you invest in an airline, you're making the bet. This will recover over the long term with out there being a bankruptcy in the interim I might make that bet on South West I am not making that bet on any other airline. Second quarter earnings for trip. TRIPADVISOR are scheduled for early August, but we got indications today that. It is not going to be pretty trip. Advisor said it expects a revenue for June to be one fifth of what it was a year ago and Dan trip advisors also quick to point out. We've got the money to cover our debt obligations for the rest of this year, and all through twenty twenty one, but. That seems like the financial equivalent of damning with faint praise. Yeah, that that's that's not great. That's not let's go into a meeting with your boss and he looks really upset. He says well. We're not GONNA fire you. It's like okay. I'm not getting fired, but something. That's not good here and look. Travel has rocketed back to twenty percent of previous volume. That's not great at look. Nobody's taking discretionary vacations, too. I mean there are places you can go there. Camping is up there. There are some things people will do, but the amount of people flying to Orlando to Disneyworld, which hasn't even released its official method of reserving days at the park yet.

Thank you. Did you do anything exciting yesterday? I grilled some meat because. It's father's Day. Anyone grill should be able to grow whatever they want on their day. Texas Day Brazil so similar theme except I didn't have to cook. We've got wonderful buying opportunity. For anyone out there who wants to own an iconic brand, but we're going to start today with the airlines. Both united and American Airlines in the news, because both of them are looking to raise a lot of money American, airlines is reportedly going to be raising up to three and a half billion dollars and united. Is GonNa. Be raising up to five billion dollars. How bad is it out there for the airlines? Because when I look at this and look I, know these are huge businesses, but this is. This is probably not what you want to see. If you're looking to own shares of these companies, yeah, this is bad news, so the estimates are. They're losing forty five million dollars a day and everyone's acting like we're back to business as usual. The reality is we're back to some flights limited capacity, and you probably didn't pay that much to be on those flights, so airlines are in real trouble until there is a cure or some method of keeping you safe on planes if they make every seat, some sort of individual plexiglass pod I guess maybe that could work, but I'm not even sure how that would work with loading and offloading at best, you're looking at two thirds capacity. And most routes are going to have lower pricing I've books implies I. Don't know if I'll take them, but I book some flights and the pricing was very very low, so this is a lot of pain and starting at the end of September they can lay some people off. They're trying with buyouts and other offers to reduce their workforce, but these are companies that are not going to be back to normal for. Years I put out I'm travel optimist. KINDA SAY! You're one of them were optimistic. People I've heard talking about the travel industry in general whether we're talking about people getting back to casinos. or The airlines or the cruise lines.

It was founded in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven and San Jose California and the first store opened in that city on May Seventeenth of nineteen seventy seven as of two thousand seventeen. They have six hundred and eight location in forty seven states and fifteen countries. It was originally going to be called. Coyote Pizza but old Nolan when he ordered his Animatronic that's the right word. Okay I was just looking to make sure I said it right. He thought he was gonNA get a coyote and instead they sent him eroded he's like it's not GonNa be Coyote Pizza. Let's name Rick Rats Pizza and the what terrible name I or on the last minute. The marketers were like that is so they changed it to old chuck E. Cheese Pizza now chucky cheese. It's named after a animatronic rat mouse. Yeah I don't think rats not the word you want rodent now. Cheese is short for Charles entertainment cheese which sounds like a really fancy like a high-class business person. Charles Entertainment Choose. Yeah he sounds like he's like a DJ or like a actors some sort but he's just animatronic rat yeah now. Ea existed both has an animatronic. Which is the creepy robot. Like the Abraham Lincoln from Disneyland and he just kind of like moves his head and arms in like a weird robot way love and fake sings. Along with some weird chucky cheese song by the also. There's a guy in the cheese suit that also comes around and high fives kids and the old mascot and does some sort of weird chucky cheese dance. That harbor was trying to learn. I was trying to learn to shake your leg. Like they're doing like the Stinky Lake like torquing. It looked like like. What are these kids doing? I need to go back to my Chinese finger trap over now. Do you remember the robot banned from when we were kids so when we were there before you go into that room with all the big tables and there was a full band of there was like a dog playing drums and banging on the trash can strummed on the street lights? I think is what they were doing. One of them looked like grimace. I don't know if that's right. I wonder 'cause we didn't we went to the Roseville location meeting. Go to the central Thais location. I wonder if the citrus heights. I've delivered to seven gone back there. I wonder if they still have that room so I had heard that they made that change at all the locations the updated it now. One of the updates was getting rid of the animatronic band on the stage and replacing it with TV shows or the big TV monitors. That just played that Weird Kids. Bop Song like eighty five times in a row. One Song. Yeah they didn't like switch up and go from kids about four a kid Bob Five. It was the same song for our half. We were there. It was the Justin Bieber Song wasn't it? I don't think it was. I would recognize it. If as Justin Bieber I think it was like Jessie J or whatever it was played thirty one hundred times in a row with like a quick break with like courtoom. Doug back to kids Bob It was awful like land. The plane refer fakery. Honor was so they've made that change so we no longer have the animatronic band. Which is kind of a bummer. Because we remember that from our childhood they also updated the menu which talk about the food here a little bit longer but one of the complaints was that the food wasn't very good and they attempted to fix that which they did not do a great job of doing that. Will I was reading in the reason? Why Nolan BUSHNELL CHOSE PIZZA? Because he said it was the easiest thing to make and one of the hardest things to really screw up too bad. It's true and you can tell with the effort. They gave to make okay pizza. We're trying they nailed that we're trying to break the internet or anything. So let's talk about the food real quick so we've got our terrible pizza. It was badly when we was kids. I don't really know no because you get cheese pizza and you can't screw up cheese pizza but as long as there's cheese sauce nailed it even the sauce and we're not paying attention anyway. We were just looking at the game. Heredity to rock will. We're watching the band. Laurie Damn watching the dog play the drums or the Banjo. Whatever he's doing it's impressive. Maybe both he might have been both playing the drums with the Banjo. Now you play the old dog and then maybe I'll tip my cap that's the hardest woodland now. They also have a salad bar. What there was which we thought about getting until we looked at it it looked like the original salad and the original bar those lesson they claimed it now. It would just look like you're right but it looks like a tornado. Went off like the Croutons were in. All of the kid went in there and just through the tomatoes on the roof then like hot wings and some other stuff now and the new menu that they did hot wings leading the way. Isn't that the same tag hot wheel? Wheels. There you go now the thing that I remember that sadly wasn't at this one with search marketing surge. Chucky cheese you know I didn't I was more of a sprite. Guy Always so chucky. Cheese was like the last place to have surged now. We talked about that on a previous episode but Serge. We get you jacked up. Like mountain dew on steroids like ready to play all the games forever which we did which we did but that was one of the last search now now that they've updated the menu. They got beer there now wine. I saw drinking a beer. I had a beer market unagi beer. It's true there's cartoon rats walking around. I can't be sober keeping not drinking a beer. I can't even doing the was it. Call you put the left foot and can't be turning all around so I'm sure now I thought the piece was decent. I mean it was the funniest thing to me though like every I'd tried every pizza the want got. We got like six different pizzas. Yeah and I thought that all the pizzas tasted different. Which was weird. I know they were different flavors but like pepperoni taste different than the pizza. I think it was like different sauce. Different cheese different bread was gluten free and the other one got the extra gluten. I don't know how it worked. I would we get a gluten free pizza. You're afraid of salad. So he's held afraid of me all right so we're GONNA move on from the food I think just because that's like that's the worst part of CECCHI cheese. Although you can door dash chucky cheese pizza we did find out. Yeah and Thomas has done the delivery Thomas the tank and Oh God. Can you imagine that coups that four? I want to meet this person. Do you think when he leaves. He's got his hands down all right so we're going to move onto the games now. The Games are the reason that you go to check cheese now the first one we're going to talk about it's kind of your classic carnival game as Skibo every check. Jesus key ball. Did you play skibo where they're not? This time. I was chasing mad dog around but things ski boats. Don't go for the top corners. Okay just go right down the middle you know worst case you get four thousand you know go for the five thousand get your score up there and just just seems like an amateur mood to go for ten thousand every time unless you're really good at Ski Ball but where do you get hit like two of them. That's better than five thousands with the same Math was good. I also have a calculator in my brain now. The game that I like playing the most which one didn't have no because I don't think they probably don't make them anymore. They would have to fix that game. It ever worked. It was always. I feel like out order. We'd always WANNA play it so the game that we're talking about before we. We just went with content before we went with the discussion before we introduce the game. You should know everyone should just know that we're talking about the shoot the teeth game so you had like a cannon with like a push button trigger two of them usually on each one and it would shoot like a pretty weighted ball. You're shooting a shot. Put you to knock down the teeth from the creepy animatronic Gulick. Yeah sure back. Yeah now that was now of the Games that we cheated to win. That was my favorite one to do because there was room between the ski ball and the knock the teeth down game. Oh yeah and we would just go right around and we would just shoot once and then knock all the teeth down. We're really good with cannons. So funny we walked by this game and all the teeth fell down sex so big. It's pretty easy that way. I think the next game that I remember is the my favorite. We'll talk about a minute. But the spitting like they still have those most most arcades will have that one anything has tickets. Yeah as old arcade worker. I would have to agree with. I'm not very good that I think only hit the Jackpot once or twice I. I'm not even close. I'm like I get like four tickets. This is like how do you even do that? It was on the other side of the Dole. You've got exactly in the middle between those two lights. You're not even trying so. That's a good game. The claw game. Did you win that ball for Harper from the clock? Yeah I try. That's pretty good before the guy even reloaded there's only w- two balls left in there. One was like wedged in the corner and I nailed it. I try it's awesome. I know where that ball is now but I was hyped on that. Yeah I could see. You're getting the crowd into it and I think the most important thing check you choose. Yeah it was like a Wednesday night so it was uh that was. It was very quiet other than me. Yelling won the claw game now. There's the Coin Games now. There's all kinds of these now where you just trying to like. Knock the coins off the end or roll them down a hill and to a certain target. Remember the like Ski Jump One. Yeah where you would send it down like four little super small sliver to win the Jackpot. That's how he those are the Games where you get most of your tickets. You can get cured devoted to it if you get a lot like three coins. Downright as the jackpot volumes go in. Yeah I mean I.

"Yes, culture, things it just so happens that right before this. I was watching gravity falls. And there was an episode making fun of Chucky cheese. This is Fay. And the animatronic go crazy and tried to kill people. And speaking of that five nights at freddy's is probably one of the biggest examples of like a cultural Chucky cheese thing, this, this is I've never actually played it. I know it's video game though. Yes. Video game. And it's pretty short, if you haven't heard of it, it's inspired by Chucky cheese. Tight restaurants where you're playing a security guard that has to evade malfunctioning animatronic that will kill you. Yeah. You're you're working at night. You were on the Nightwatch, and you only have a limited amount of power to supply you through the night, and you can you look through the security cameras, but that takes power lights. It takes power few close the doors to protect yourself and takes our our so you kind of have to play a waiting game where they're getting closer and closer and you have to like rash out your power, and let them get closer until until it's just hopeless and they kill you. Yeah. I've never lasted all five nine. It's usually Bonnie, the bunny kills me. Okay. She's really fast. She's the fastest one. Well, no, there's there's like a secret one two way faster. But he only comes out randomly. That's not better the creator apparently got the idea for this game after he was designing. What was supposed to be kid friendly game? And he got a lot of complaints about it that the main character that was supposed to be a happy beaver looked too much like a freaky animatronic that would kill you. This was like complaint. He was getting in his inbox. And he was like, well, I can do that instead, interesting themselves anyway. It's a it's a great game if you have any interest in, like jump scares, or I played it at a party before we turned off the lights and solid could last the longest 'cause it's pretty it's fairly short. It's super and there are five sequels. I've only played the first one but yeah, we're worth looking into I'll get interest in the scary fun game. Oh, yeah. I spent Lauren the trailer. I'm trying to get her to play. I don't know. I might have I am about my, my ticker is not as good as it used to be I might might have too little. However, speaking of games, there's a great episode of the freakonomics radio podcast that goes into the token system, the Chucky, cheeses, arcade games us, and, and it's arguing that this is kids..

"We're back. Thank you. Sponsored so about a year after that, first San Jose location, opened Warner the company that you've probably heard of our schist Atari from Bush Nell, but they didn't really want to have anything to do with a pizza, arcade, rat themed thing. I can't imagine is wrong with them Bushnell. They told him to sell it and wouldn't you know who bought it, but Bushnell? He sold it to himself sold it to himself, and he was not going to let it go at the time. It was more of a side project for him because he remained on as the CEO of Atari. But there are some tensions between mourner and Bushnell. And by the time they decided they'd had enough of each other in split ways, Bushnell had opened two hundred fifty Chucky cheeses, and they were up and running throughout the United States allow, yeah. So he was pretty pretty busy along the side, making sure that this was probably going to succeed. Yeah. Yes. And then even more drama Bush Nell sought financial backing from the chairman of Brock hotel corporation, Bob rock. And while researching some improvements he could make as he expanded Chucky cheese Brock. He's going to expand them into six. States. He sixteen new states sixteen new states. Yes, thank you. He came across an animatronic engineer named Aaron Becher debtors animatronic worked a little more smoothly than the current ones in use at Chucky cheese. Apparently they actually had facial expressions that changed my goodness. Just tumbling, you further and further into the uncanny valley lately. We all love that, don't we? So Brooke offered to buy them from fetter. But apparently they were very far superior than what Jorgi cheese had going on. Because when federal turned down rocks offer Brockton said, went to business with fetch. Oh, yeah. Opening a competing. Restaurant, arcade, named show biz pizza place. Yeah. Intrigue. I know there's intrigue pizza rat into this is crazy. Their target was slightly different with the band, rock afire explosion, that played music appealing for an older crowd, and someone in our office, who works in our office. Ramsey tells me that there's a documentary about this. Oh, yeah. Had the chance to watch it. But I will. Absolutely. Seek it out. Yeah. Yeah. Shit. Check it out, and let us know what you think and as you can imagine junkie, cheese wasn't happy about this probably Bush Nell the company. Yes. Yeah. So they sued showbiz pizza place, eventually reaching a settlement that obligated show biz pizza place to pay out some of its profits to check cheese over fourteen year period, hoof. Yeah. And all the while this is going on Chucky. Cheeses building pretty solid rep. Yeah. Reputation in a nineteen Eighty-one info world article written by Scott. Mace, he described Chucky cheese as quote, a whirling combination of garish, lights and nonstop electronic noise. That is quite unlike any other pizza parlor, or video game, arcade. It has part Star Wars part Disneyland and parts social phenomena. Yeah. Yeah. But despite this, shall we say praise I and the legal win Chucky cheese went bankrupt in nineteen Eighty-four and showbiz. Took it over what I know they combine the two companies into showbiz pizza time Inc Bush. No, he abandoned ship just before, bankruptcy and he walked away with thirty five million. And I couldn't find like he would he won't talk about it, really or at least in any interview I could find. He won't talk about exactly what happened. Oh my good. Yeah, but Chucky cheese, the character was too popular to kill off, so showbiz. Billy, Bob very similar to check you. Cheese and chugging. Jeez appeared in as together as friendly competition who is I know it's so there's so much drama here. And when fetter the, the animatronic sky left, he took his rocket fire explosion creations with them. But he only took the outside like the suits. So they he used the actual like skeleton, animatronic skeletons, and they put Chucky cheese costumes on them. Yeah. Oh, okay. Yep. By nine that's not creepy at all. I know. Don't think about it too hard. Fi nineteen Ninety-two although Gatien's had been rebranded as jeez. Yeah. And side note in the same vein type of restaurant. Dave and busters opened its first location in nineteen eighty two and other side note. Check cheese went international in nineteen eighty under the name Charlie cheese in Australia. And the name change thing was, due to the Australian association of Chuck with vomit. Don't want people associated that with the restaurant. Probably not. No other other other side note the company went public in one thousand nine hundred nine and then go on to change its name. To see see Chucky cheese entertainment in nineteen ninety eight in one thousand nine hundred nine the company produced a direct to video movie. It was called Chucky cheese in the galaxy five thousand okay? It mostly only played in, in Chucky cheese locations, but it's apparently about a young boy who needs to raise money to fix his family's tractor. So the whole animal crew gets together and enters an intergalactic race on the planet, or Ryan, of course because that's the most logical way to raise like fifty grand for tractor. It's definitely what I would have done. I very first thing I would have thought of in twenty twelve Chuck E received a makeover and a species change. He's a mouse. Now. What's, yeah. He's also younger and slimmer looking he. He's some for some reason, lost the backwards baseball cap and the elbow pads that he always wore. Despite the fact that he was never, like skateboarding rollerblading knew he had elevate. Definitely had elbow pads for a while there. Okay. He now wears Chuck Taylor's, like the kids do. Yeah. And he sometimes carries a Qatar really cool. And he's voiced by the frontman of bowling for soup. I never saw that coming. I think that I did not dream. I would get to say into a microphone ever, I know. Yeah, Jerry Rettig, he replaced, the decade-long voice actor Duncan Brannon in twenty twelve and there was a little bit of drama about that too, because apparently Brandon was just about the last person to know about the switch, like a fan sent a video with the new actor to Brennan, and he was he released a press release about how upset he was about the situation. Yeah. That would be pretty upsetting in early. Twenty fourteen of the company was was floundering a little bit again. And see see entertainment was bought by this private holding company called Apollo for one point three billion dollars later in two thousand fourteen the company would buy a pizza chain called Peter piper pizza, which is a family restaurant concept with playgrounds, and our cades. Attached. Sorta like the the inverse of Chucky cheese. I think Apollo is trying to kind of expand it. So it's it's holding in this company. And as of two thousand seventeen there have been reports that Apollo is looking to either open the business to public trading. Again with an IPO sometime this year or to sell the chain for two billion dollars. They have turned the chains profits around in the time that they've owned it these eater. Tain -ment centers had been operating at a loss for a couple years, but, but now, they're, they're doing they're doing some, some, some millions in profit every quarter these days. So, wow. Yeah, it's pretty impressive. This is the section we had to come back in add in, because right after recorded our episode on Jackie choose big Chucky, cheese news. Yeah. We apparently tapped into some kind of Chucky cheese zeitgeist we did. We could feel that this was an important topic of brewing. Yeah. So Chucky cheese as of as of August of twenty seventeen is working on phasing out there. Animatronic. No more pizza time players know in the reason they gave for this is that kids are two discerning these days. Yeah, their expectations of technology are too high. And that therefore, even the best of animatronic are going to be slightly disappointing. Wow. But Tom Laverton the, the company's CEO reported that many people have like bought used animatronic, and set them up in their own homes and garages to like, and like keyed them around to play music again. That's so so there's a second life there is when I was searching this a lot of the talk results for like, auctioning off. Oh, wow ex. Yeah. Just kind of both endearing and terrifying. I don't know how I would feel if I went to someone's house, and they had that in grudge, I would need to know that before I arrived. Yes, I would need a warning. I also found a hilarious eulogy written by musician. And it was like, you didn't know at first, it was about checking I know how hard it is to make it in the entertainment business. But this man whose middle name was an attainment, couldn't make it, and how it was great. It was great. Well. They're also phasing in digital kiosk so that you don't have to interact with the person at all. You just say, I want a pizza and a coke or whatever beverage, you'd prefer. And this many dollars time a playing time in regard, and that's it. Okay. So so, so old robots out new robots in exactly so that kind of explains the db history of the entertainment and the company, but hey, this is a show about food purportedly. So what about the food? What about it? Well food and beverages make up about forty five percent of Chucky cheese, and Peter pipers, total sales. So the food is allure. It's a trap. Wow. Yeah. So what are they serving? Yeah. Besides pizza. Well, the basics are the same worldwide like Qripoli the same. Okay. I went I went down a little bit of a rabbit hole today. I pulled up the menus from all of their international locations and three locations around the United States. Specifically one in Massachusetts went in Boise Idaho. And the one in Atlanta, and then Chile Guatemala, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago. Peru Mexico and Dubai. And they basically all offer the same things. Like down to the same specialty pizza topping combinations. I made a spreadsheet. Okay. So so categories here. All of them serve wings. Some kind of fried potatoes chicken, nuggets pizza's sandwiches salads, desserts, and beverages, you can go sensually anywhere in the world to check each and get the same talion Shibata sandwich, or the same chicken, Caesar rap everywhere, except Mexico, Panama and Chile offered the same barbecue chicken pizza. It has a green peppers, crispy onions chicken and a barbecue sauce in Chile they call. They're all meat pizza, the Americana which cracks me up. I was like, oh, that's vote is thanks guys just about everywhere, except America offers a full coffee slash Espresso bar, Atlanta is the only location. I checked that specifies that wine is available. In addition to beer on their menu which does seem to be fairly varied Lanta thing, it does. I think most places also offer one but they're online. Menu say, like also beer, rate, get a coffee but Atlanta Atlanta's like we got wine to they're like, hey, we need. The Peruvian menu deviated the most they offer a Hawaiian pizza for dessert, there's flawn or a marshmallow pizza served with ice cream. What is a marshmallow pizza? I don't know. I think it's baked dough that you've covered in marshmallow fluff. I want it. Oh, okay. Trip to Peru, we need to get a kid along the way. They also the proven us specifies that they have local beverages like passion for juice, and Tito Murata, which is a spiced purple corn fruit drink beverage than into by as an appetizer. You can get come on. Mbare bites. That's pretty fancy. It is Dubai. True. Also speaking of food, they also sell dairy products in grocery stores. Whoa, I this is the thing that I never knew I missed this. But yeah, you can buy Chucky cheese branded string cheese shredded cheeses and not one, but four flavors of yogurt in a squeezy tube. They've got strawberry, blueberry melon, berry.

"Yes, Chucky cheeses as it is more properly known possessive. Now. L. Let's get that out of the way right out front. Yeah. Somehow this comes up a lot at our office. It's one of those mysteries of conversation. I'd say at least once a week. Yeah, I don't know how, and we haven't done any restaurant episodes, yet, here on food stuff, which is a theme that we, you know, have been planning on covering Chucky. Cheeses, a restaurant. Yeah. It serves food. It does for sure. Have you ever been to Chucky cheese and one? Yeah, I mean, clearly clearly a obvious not well, not in, like twenty five years. At least, I remember going in the late eighties. Early nineties, I went for my ninth birthday. No. And I there was this purple unicorn prize. I really wanted, and I'm sure if I'd just bought it from grocery store. It was probably maybe maybe a dollar probably less, but I spent at least twenty dollars on. On tokens to get tickets to the fries. Okay. If you out there in podcast land have never been to Chucky cheese or never heard of one and are very confused about what's going on. Let's talk about what it is. Yes, let's do that. Uh-huh. Oh man. The easier question is, what isn't it 'cause it's a restaurant, it's an arcade. It's midway their theatrics involved. Chucky cheeses is chain of dining and entertainment, centres aimed at families with young children, ages, two to twelve or thereabouts Chucky cheeses, where a kid can be a kid. That's the saying, uh-huh. That's been there saying for like forty years. It's their fortieth anniversary this year. I did not know that we're old. It's great. Chucky cheeses, generally feature video game cabinets, arcade games that let you collect tickets to exchange for prizes. Yes. And pizza alcoholic beverages for the adults and some kind of live, entertainment, or as the case may be mechanical entertainment, more on that in a moment, and they do focus on birthday parties and other like multifamily gathering kind of situations. Yeah. And the live entertainment part is, is really what catapulted this concept to legendary status because otherwise, you've just got an indoor midway, but the entertainment involves performers in, in walk around costumes, which is an entertainment industry term for those full body, plush costumes, you know, like the kind that Disney uses to let Mickey Mouse, actually, walk physically around their parks and give kids hugs, and, or their very first existential crisis. Yes. That kind of cost. Okay. Into regionally Chucky cheeses had a full band of life size robotic characters though would act out. Verbal skits and play music. Yes, that is what I remember. And this is the it terrified me when I was a child, I was on the border line of thinking that animatronic was okay. And that was one of the ones where I was like, well, since you're over the edge. I am not happy. You are not okay with that. I was not. I was not pleased. I don't think I I don't I don't think I completely like broke down. But that's good. I remember being like I was like, I'm gonna go play some Skibo do something else other than watch this literally anything else. Yes, yes. Although they started with just one location in San Jose in the late nineteen. Seventies, there are now six hundred six locations spread throughout the United States, and the middle in South America, plus the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Yes, you can visit a Chucky cheese. Sees in mecca. Wow. Go to pray state of play. Is that what they say? I'm not personally aware of but if any marketing teams want to get in touch with me. We'll have her contact information at the end of the show. Yeah, the, the employees about eighteen thousand people worldwide and made just a hair under a billion dollars in revenue in two thousand sixteen. Wow. According to chief marketing officer. Michael Hartmann ninety percent of families who live within fifteen miles of a Chucky cheeses and have a child between the ages of three and eight have visited at least once and half of those families have visited in the past year. Chucky cheese is doing a lot better than I thought it would be currently. I know. Right. It's still it is pervasive, cultural phenomenon. Yes. And let's talk about how it became to be. Yes. A progressive cultural phenomenon. Check cheese was the brainchild of Nolan Bushnell who also happens to be the co founder of Atari like Atari Atari. Yeah. Like video games. Yeah. He originally started Chucky cheese. He built his game called pong, arcade. Game called pong. You may also be familiar with. Yes. And he wanted a place where people could go play it, and he could make money off of it. Yeah. Like like a vertical integration thing because he was telling you know, we're selling the cabinets. So in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven while working at a Tari Bush. No got the idea that if he could give these games a home, he could make a lot more money because at the time you would sell a coin operated, arcade. Game for fifteen hundred to two thousand which is a nice chunk of change. Yeah. However, over the lifetime, it goes on to make v. Fifteen to twenty thousand dollars. Yeah. Which is way more. Yeah. So he wanted a slice of that. And speaking of wanting a slice of he came up with the concept for the restaurant with an arcade attached as a way to avoid competition from typical straight up arcades, and since pizza is relatively simple fast and pretty much universally revered. He decided to make it a pizza place. Yeah. Other innovations by the way that, that Nolan Bushnell made include one of Steve Jobs. First professional gigs. Yeah. In developing the game breakout in the seventies. And so I know it I'm very happy that this episode gaming the opportunity to explore the video game crash of nineteen Eighty-three aka the Atari shock. Oh, oh, it's great. There's definitely an episode about that over on tech stuff. I'm sure that you can use your Google's to, to find that one. But okay, let's, let's get back to those singing animatronic. How did that happen? Yeah. Of this kind of bizarre thing came about actually with the parents in mind. What yeah they are meant for the parents. So Bush, no knew that kids could be very, very persuasive. Conniving I you say. say you might say that when they're trying to convince their parents to do something that they wanted to do. So. Bush knew that an arcade means spending money and parents are kind of trying to avoid that. So he thought if the if he had free robot band, it was free with food purchase, then it would it would be more of a cell, it'd be an easier sell. It would be like entertainment dinner and a show. And then guess what? Mom and dad. There are all these games here. Oh, this arcade, and also beer, you like beer you do like beer have have a beer, will you? And I can't really recall, the dialogue of this show, but Bush no claims it worked on two levels for adults and children, and that it was edgy. Unfortunately, I was unable to find any footage of this. But I, I believe that, that probably is true. Share like Muppets kind of thing. Yeah. Yeah. He drew inspiration from a place called pizza and pipes where large crowds would gather to eat pizza, and watch someone play in Oregon. And he was like. They're just coming to see this Oregon show and getting pizza. I can do that. I can do better. Yeah. And then he saw the animatronic at the Tiki room at Disneyland, and that gave him the idea to just cut the cost of having to pay for a performer and get a robotic banned. Yeah, because that's clearly cheaper than paying a human person in his mind and probably in the long run. And at the time this project was known as codename Coyote pizza when it was on its way to being Greenland. Bush Nell attended the international association of amusement parks in attractions or a PA in Orlando. Yep. I'm sure that's. Yeah. Yup. But he stumbled across a group selling mascot outfits, and they just so happened to have the perfect Coyote, mascot. Because if you couldn't tell about the codename the original idea was for a Coyote, mascot. Okay. Yeah. Bush Nell purchase the outfit and send it back to his team. So they could get about started robotic firing it. And when Bush hill had returned and he asked about the progress report on this animatronic Coyote, the engineers were confused. And they told them they didn't receive a Coyote costume, but they had instead received a rat. Oh, but how did that mix up happen? Who knows? But it changed the course of this whole thing push was unfazed. He said, no problem. We'll call it regrets pizza. Instead. Well. As you can imagine due to the whole people kind of being grossed out by rats, especially near their food, even before pizza ret, the public relations firm associated with this was not really on board. With regrets pizza. So they proposed a name change a week or so later, they countered with Chuck E cheese and the east dance were entertainment, by the way. Yeah. And I think that they chose this name based on the fact that it forces your face to smile like three times in while you're saying it do it with befriends, Chuck E cheese. Oh, it's terrible. It's like it's like the joker venom. Yeah. I mean but, but great. They're like it's happiness and syllables go that's crazy. That there are people pay to think about that. And bought of that. Yeah. Nuts well with the name decided upon, and the animatronic built the first took Ichi opened in San Jose, California in may of nineteen seventy seven the original cast of imitrex included Chucky cheese, crusty, the cat. Who was replaced by Mr. months after only a year. Plus qualley the sing chef on drums, the dog Jasper t jowls and the war blitz who could forget the bar blitz, it was known after Mr. months, joined as munches make believe band o many characters would be tested throughout the years, including an Elvis impersonator multiple husband, having former cabaret star and hippo, Dolly dimples. I think I remember Dali don't remember Dolly. I, I don't remember really anybody, but Chucky cheese, I think like seven-year-old me was like, what kind of low rent miss piggy is this? Some shade on the hippo govern from a young Lauren. And this brings us to a quick bonus note about immature traffic programming. At the time the skits were programmed by Mike Hatcher, who wrote the authoring system and was also a skilled puppeteer and screenwriter each minute of movement took three hours of programming with two hundred movements happening simultaneously during each show. And he did this during the graveyard shift by watching a tape in programming each movement individually. Wow. And on top of that, the skit changed monthly, you know, keep things fresh keep people coming share. Gotta come back. Yes. New joke that works on two levels. Will we get this week and extra bonus fact the animatronic were pneumatic powerful stuff? Yes. And going back to that the show kind of being aimed towards adult thing. The first rendition of Chucky cheese was a bit less kid friendly, if you look through the old Chucky, cheese comic books, and yes, there are comic books he smokes Gars yet, if thick New Jersey accent, and he was kind of a jerk.
