The Studio C concept is a stage concept found at Chuck E. Cheese's locations that opened from 1997-2012, or replaced a previous stage. Starting with the Studio C (1997), which was installed from 1997-2002 2012 & 2015, then Studio C 2000,which was installed from 2000-2012,then the Small-Town Studio C, which was installed from 2003-2006.


In 1997 the Awesome Adventure Machine is considered a failure among Showbiz and is mostly scrapped as a concept. But one of the concepts from this that survived is the one Animatronic entertainment. Showbiz consult several different clients to create Animatronics for the new generation and ultimately landed on Garner Holt Productions. GHP (Garner Holt Productions) created the Chuck E. Cheese 32m (Animatronic), Chuck E. Cheese 16m (Animatronic), Parrot (Animatronic), and some of the props for the shows.


The regular Studio C show contains one Chuck E. Animatronic and video monitors.
