The Pizza Time Theatre Showtape D2 Tape Recording was a copied D2 Tape from the original session audio for the Pizza Time Theatre Showtape, believed to have been originally from multiple reels.


The segments on the tape included the original voice demos for the showtape, along with original recordings of songs in the showtape. The demo voice tracks has John Widelock as most of the characters, with Scott Paulin making a small appearence as Jasper in the theme song, and the Warblettes being voiced by Buffy Sainte-Marie.
