September 2004 Show is the show that released September 2004 and played until the end of November 2004.

This show was the first released with Robert Gotcher as Director of Entertainment. The show is also known to have a lost song on it, which was removed sometime before its final release.

Going On a Diet

A lost song called 'Going On a Diet' was removed from the showtape before its release. The song was a parody of "She Blinded Me With Science" and was sung by Munch with Pasqually also having a small part. The video footage featured the band working out at a gym. The footage was later used with stock music in the April 2005 Show and a small clip of the song itself can be heard in a VJ spot in Best of CEC TV 2008. The song was intended for Segment 2 and was replaced by "Go To Chuck E. Cheese" reused from the April 2002 show. It was cut due to corporate executives thinking it was insensitive.[1]

Reused Items

  • This show features countdowns which use footage or intermissions from previous shows. Interestingly enough, the first, fifth and sixth countdowns have their original show audio. Since those three songs are from 1992-1993 shows, the character voices from that time can be heard.
  • Clowns Making A Sandwich (reused from August 1999) has added background music for this show.

Show Specifics

  • Chuck's curtains close during "Smile" on all versions of the show.
  • Chuck is programmed during the Fundraising spot and the reused Larry the Technician intermission on all versions of the show.
  • Just like in the April 2004 Show, the Studio C puppets only appear during the dialogue portions in-between songs.
  • Instead of their usual backgrounds, the Studio C puppets are shown in a children's play area from a local church.
