From Cheese-E-Pedia

"The C Files" (Must C TV Award) 


Release Date: 1998
Manufacturer: Corman & Associates




This poster features a parody of the TV Show "The X Files" which has Chuck E. in a detective outfit while holding a flashlight, Helen is depicted screaming and running, and also Jasper is seen running away. On top of the poster is 2 aliens spaceship invading earth with one of them about the abduct Helen or Jasper.


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.
