This is Madame Oink's third showtape entitled "Tunnel of Love". The basic concept here is that the audience is guided (through the Tunnel of Love) to different countries and introduced to their native songs. The different locations visited are: Mexico, Canada, Australia, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Japan, The Tropics, and Hawaii.

It should be noted that there are a few variations of this tape that exist. There is one that incorporates the special birthday show in honor of Chuck E. Cheese's 5th Birthday which occured in May of 1982, and another which does not.


Pasqually's Voice - This showtape has Scott Wilson performing the voice of Pasqually (who was originally voiced by Joe Spano). Scott resumes the role of Pasqually beginning with Bandstand 1. It is also included in the "It's a Special Day (CEC 5th Birthday)" song, suggesting that this birthday track was recorded along with this tape (and not Harmony II which it also appears on).

Oink III Stage - For this show there was a another special set of backdrops and props. A custom valance was included that was made to look like a banner held up by two cherub pigs and read "Tunnel of Love". Behind center-stage were two backdrops of swans facing each other forming a heart-shape (the entrance included a silouette of Oink and Jasper cuddling in a boat, the exit had Chuck E sitting alone in his boat and kicking up his feet). The heart shaped entrances created by the swan props was also surrounded by a pattern of lights. A river backdrop was placed beneath the swans, and a mirrored material was placed behind them.





-3.5 out of 5 Tokens-

This tape is typical of Madame Oink tapes (traveling to other countries, far-off exotic places, etc). Tunnel of Love is the most varied of the Oink tapes, in regard to the number of countries included, and is actually much more "Around the World" than the Around the World with Madam Oink tape.

Unfortunately that's about the biggest highlight to be found. Chuck E is consistant with his insults and Oink with her snorting, but the tape overall seems to lack the charm and humor of the other Madame Oink tapes. One major downside to the focus being placed on traditional music from other countries is... well... who the heck knows these songs? There are a few gems here, and some very recognizable songs, but overall the choices are quite bizarre (I had trouble finding the proper song titles even after typing strings of lyrics into search engines). If the internet has trouble nailing down these songs, I can safely assume that children of the 80s didn't know them either.

Call me crazy, but I'm not a fan of Scott Wilson's Pasqually. I have a hard time hearing around that when listening to this tape. I don't mean to be overly critical here, but Tunnel of Love starts out with a bang and a nicely composed opening medley and then never quite picks it back up. As far as I'm concerned, this is easily the weakest of the Madame Oink tapes we have in our collection.
