Mr. Mouth tells everyone a important announcement, he told the audience there was someone who was celebrating a birthday today, he says: Who is it?, the audience tells Mr. Mouth, he says: Wow, let's hear it for the guest of honor, the audience cheers, Mr. Mouth calls this for a celebration, he tells the audience to clap and sing, then Chuck E. and his friends come out and sing to the Birthday Star, this is like 1992's version but more of a upbeat hip hop rap like music to it.
Birthday Star January 2001-December 2008
A announcer says it's time to party, then Chuck E. and his friends comes out, then they sing to the Birthday Star, a man says it's someone's birthday today, he don't know it was either a boy or girl, then the band sings the chorus again, Chuck E. to Jump 4 times, he got tired really quickly, then they went back to the chorus again, Chuck E. sings the chorus again 1 time but more of a auto tune sound, Chuck E. says watch out because the cake is here, he told the kids to bake with him, after that, they sing Happy Birthday to You, then the song ends, weirdly this version was kinda different from 2001's Birthday Star, in 2002's version the lyrics go like this: Nah (5x) Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday to You (Chuck E. Cheese!)
Birthday 2009 Version
Two kids named Justin and Kelly let everyone in the showroom to be informed that Chuck E. Cheese will be out to celebrate with them, and to do that, everyone had to chant "Chuck E.

Chuck E then asks the audience if they're ready to get loud 3 times, and then he draws an invisible line to make 2 teams. One that says happy, while the other says birthday, while clapping after each one, before they all say happy birthday. Then Chuck E. announces that it's finally time to sing Happy Birthday, before the kid then blows out their candles, then the cast members bring out their special medallion.

And then they chant "Chuck E. Rocks!" instead of "Chuck E. Cheese"!. Then Charles enters the showroom, and then he wants to greet the birthday people. Then Mr. Munch asks if it's time for cake. Chuck says no, then they do a little air guitar rock contest, Where Jasper T. Jowls comes in and plays too. Then Helen Henny brings out her tiara she made, and Munch thought that she made a cake for him. Then everyone from CEC brought everyone their own medallion like last showtape. Later on, Chuck draws an invisible line with one team saying "Birthdays!", while the other one says "Rock!".
