|The pictures show a front and back view of all (3) Old Painted Chuck E. Cheese Arcade Pizza Restaurant Advertising Coin Saving Banks in this lot. The center bank is not dated but all three are believed to be from the 1990s. These feel like they are made of a hard rubber or plastic. All three are in the shape of Chuck E. Cheese, who is the advertising character rat or mouse of a fun time arcade and pizza restaurant by the same name.|
The center Chuck E. Cheese is standing in front of a triangular block of Swiss cheese. He has a cane and is winking. There is a slot at the back of his head and a plastic stopper in the bottom. This bank was most likely a prize won by someone playing arcade, video, or pin ball machines. There is no manufacturer's mark. The bank measures about 6-3/8'' tall. It is in good condition with a hole on the corner of the back of the block of cheese as pictured.
The banks on each side are of Chuck E. Cheese standing in a suit, a derby hat, and a cane waving. There is a slot at the back of his head and a plastic stopper in the bottom. These banks were also most likely a prize won by someone playing arcade, video, or pin ball machines. These appear to be in mint condition as pictured except one has a name written on the stopper. They are marked on the back as follows:
©1993 (on one and) ©1998 (on the other)
SHOWBIZ PIZZA TIME, INC.
To judge the sizes, the center bank measures about 6-1/2'' tall. These are in the conditions as pictured and mentioned above.
