That time the Whac-A-Mole inventor accidentally blew up his warehouse

By 1978, CEI was designing, producing, and building fully animatronic shows. This included the "Santa Claus Revue" (sold to Santa's Village in New Hampshire), "Confederate Critter Show" (sold to Magic World in Tennessee) and the "Wolf Pack 5," a concept Fechter came up with after seeing a live London performance of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. The "Wolf Pack 5" played 1950s style rock and roll and consisted of Wolfman, Fats Gorilla, Dingo Star, Beach Bear, and Queenie.
