Birthday Star Spectacular is a live show that plays through out Chuck E. Cheese locations whenever someone celebrates a birthday.

Plot[]

Birthday Star (May 1992-December 1993)[]

Chuck E. Cheese and his friends prepare for a very special birthday for someone in the showroom. They get prepared by a cake and candles. The audience then do their little parade of cakes with Chuck E. Cheese in it. Then they all gather around to sing Happy Birthday, and then they sing extra songs for a little entertainment.

Birthday Star (April 1994-December 1995)[]

When Disney took over showtape production in April 1994, the original 1992 show still played, until April of 1995, when Disney produced their own Birthday Star showtape. The song took on a more 90's feel, by adding a more rap beat, orchestra hits, and, for the first time, video and Chuck's curtains became closed. In the 1992 version, the screens just displayed the countdown for the next show, or nothing at all, and the Chuck E. bot sang along, as it wasn't considered a live show from creation. The intro dialogue after "Happy Birthday!" was changed slightly. Disney added spinning musical notes, confetti backgrounds, spinning stars, and other colorful patterns to the video. Mr. Mouth even made a video appearance before the show, asking if anyone had a birthday. Chuckettes, or cast members who back-up the Chuck E. walkaround, would bring each birthday guest, or "birthday star" to the front of the showroom, and announce their name, and the age they were celebrating to Mr. Mouth, who then would ask for a round of applause, then announce that it was time to join in with the band's birthday song, then disappear. Later on, Mr. Mouth was removed, leaving an instrumental intro to replace him. The Mr. Mouth-less Birthday Star ran all the way to 2000, when the 2001 version replaced it. This version played from April 1995-December 2000.

Birthday Star (January 2002-December 2007)[]

The 2001 version's lyrics were the same as the 1995 version, but with updated voice actors and music. Chuck E.'s line, "Get on your feet and clap your hands", in the 1992 version was replaced with Pasqually saying "Now clap your hands!" and Jasper replying "Get on your feet", with Helen adding "We're gonna share a special treat!". This version played from January 2001-March 2002 in most of the locations. In some locations, this version still played all the way to December 2007.

The 2002 version was very different than the previous version. This version included a much faster paced song along with a solo by Eddie Coker and released with the April 2002 show. Near the end of the song, the band would sing "Bake a Cake". This version usually ran from April 2002-December 2007.

After Birthday Star 2001, the new Birthday Star premiered in 2007, for testing, and was then retitled "Birthday Extravaganza", it was released in 2008. The intro was more jazzed up, with an announcer at the beginning, and lengthened to give parents more time to round up the birthday kids and guests into the showroom. Pasqually's "Clap your hands" line was removed. A drum solo was added in the middle, with an announcement about the "surprise" added in 2008, so Chuck E. could give the birthday kid a limited edition "Birthday Star" medal. During the candle part, Jasper and Helen's lines were removed. A "birthday photo session" was added after the song, which just showed flashes for video on the screens, imitating a bunch of paparazzi trying to snap a few shots of the birthday kid. This version officially played from January 2008-June 2009.

Birthday Star (2009-2012)[]

This time, a whole new show was added, bringing the show to nine minutes in length.

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 has to chant "Chuck E. Cheese"! six times. Then they do a drum roll on the tables. Then Chuck E. asks everyone to give a big round of applause. Then Chuck E. asks Justin and Kelly if they have any crowns for royalty. 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. Then they all sing the Birthday Star song, before it's finally time for Chuck E.'s photo ops.

Birthday Star (Rockstar)[]

The 2013 version is similar to the 2009 version, but contains updated lyrics, hip-hop beats, and vocals by Jaret Reddick and also released with the Summer 2013 show. This version started testing in April 2013 and officially played from July 2013-June 2014.

In the Birthday Rockstar 2013 show, It begins with many puppets doing their own pre-show before Mike Manly joins in, where he announces that Chuck E. Cheese will be out to perform a special show for the birthday rockstars. Then he has to ask them to do some funny movements like sticking their tongues out before asking them if they're ready. And then they chant "Chuck E. Rocks!" instead of "Chuck E. Cheese"!. Then Chuck E. enters the showroom, and then he wants to greet the birthday people. Then Mr. Munch asks if it's time for cake. Chuck E. says no, then they do a little air guitar rock contest, Where Jasper T. Jowls comes in and plays too. Then Helen Henny shows everyone her tiara she made, and Munch thinks that she has made a cake for him. Then everyone from CEC brings everyone their own medallion like last showtape. Later on, Chuck E. draws an invisible line with one team saying "Birthdays!", while the other one says "Rock!". Unfortunately, Pasqually reports to everyone that he couldn't find the candles for the birthday cake, Helen reports that she couldn't find Munch anywhere, and Jasper T. Jowls reports that someone has been chewing on his hat. To find Munch, everyone yells out "Cake Time!" to Munch. And finally, they sing Happy Birthday & The Rockstar Birthday song, before Chuck E. leaves, he gets photo ops ready.

Birthday Star (Rockstar, Shortened)[]

The new shortened version of Chuck E. Cheese's Rock Star Birthday was released with the Summer 2014 show. There are numerous slight changes with the show including a new intro with Pasqually, Mike Manley, and Wick for the countdown (as well as a shorter countdown). Munch's voice was replaced with his new voice actor Chris Hill, and some new and cut dialogue are used. Helen's tiara is absent, and Jasper T. Jowls and Pasqually don't appear in the Cake Time! segment.

In the Chuck E. Birthday Star 2015 version, an employee announces the amount of time left before the CEC Birthday show, and before they chant "Chuck E. Cheese!" eight times, he asks everyone to do some fun movements. In a few seconds, Chuck E. Cheese gets ready to celebrate. Meanwhile, Helen & Jasper tell the birthday stars to bring up the energy, and then Chuck E. yells "Birthday Fun Check!" when the audience screams, cheers, and claps. After that, Munch & Pasqually announce that it's time to sing Birthday Star & Happy Birthday. Afterwards, it's time for photo ops.

The 2016 version had a lady announcing the show instead of a gentleman. This version usually played from March 2016-September 2016 in most locations. In some locations, this version started playing in either April, May, or June. This is the only birthday show to have Helen Henny voiced by two actors named Annagrey Labasse and Caroline Richardson. The Party Promise was used in this version. Chuck E. starts a countdown from 10 before singing Happy Birthday (likely to alert the guests to return to the table in time and to give the party hosts some time to light the candles) in this version and the present versions. The dialogue of Jasper saying "Happy Birthday" after everyone shouted "Happy Birthday" was cut.

The updated 2016 version once again featured a man instead of a woman. This version usually played from October 2016-April 2018 in most locations.
