Regarding your article on Chuck E. Cheese. It's pretty accurate. My father was Robert L. Brock and I know the real "story behind the story".
The split between Brock/Bushnell was over the fact that Bushnell hadn't disclosed important info., like the negotiations with Fechter and others. Brock felt that was important enough to cause the split, because the competition would have access to superior animatronics and it was another example of Bushel's dishonesty. . I know I see it the way my father saw it but I was there every day discussing it. My father passed away in 1998 and had a 40 year run in the hotel business with Residence Inns and Holiday Inn.
Thanks, Steve Brock
