Release Date: 1998
Manufacturer: Corman & Associates



The "F.R.I.E.N.D.Z" (Must C TV Award) was a poster created for Chuck E. Cheese in 1998.


This poster features a parody of TV Show "Friends", it has Jasper T. Jowls, Mr. Munch, Chuck E. Cheese, Helen Henny, and Pasqually all sitting down on the couch watching a birthday cake.


Like the other "Must C TV" posters, this was made larger than actual TV posters, so it'd be cheaper and easier to retrofit the Phase 2 "record posters" with them.


The poster originally received generally positive reception upon release, however, as time passed, it began to get a more negative reception, with many critics of the Original Phase Trilogy using this as a literal poster child for showing how dated pre-2005 Chuck E. Cheese's stores are. Nowadays, it does have a cult following, either due to how absurd the poster is, or due to the 90s nostalgia boom.
