Earlier this month we learned that Chuck E. Cheese will be phasing out its animatronic musicians, Munch's Make Believe Band, at all but two of more than 400 locations.

They will be replaced by giant TV screens, digital dance floors, and trampoline gyms, but what is next for these performers who have been part of childhood birthday parties for decades?

I have the sad feeling that the vocalists, rodent Chuck E. Cheese and chicken Helen Henny, may be popping up at karaoke bars. Keyboardist Mr. Munch, the purple monster, seems destined for strip clubs. Italian stereotype and drummer Pasqually may find work in Italian restaurants, while hound dog guitarist Jasper Tennessee Jowls may become a studio musician in Nashville.
