Episode Summary

One morning, Mac wakes up to find that he's unintentionally created another imaginary friend named Cheese. Madame Foster allows the same rules as there are for Bloo, but Bloo does not approve of his new brother. After many attempts to get rid of him, Cheese disappears on his own. Bloo realizes that Foster's could be a very dangerous place for one so stupid as Cheese. Can he find him before something happens or Mac notices Cheese is missing?moreless

  • Cheese makes his first appearance in this episode.

    Plot: Cheese first appears in Mac's bedroom. Then Mac takes him to Foster's. Bloo has to take care of Cheese, and he (Bloo) does not like it. Bloo tries to avoid this so he makes the others take care of Cheese. The plan backfires, so Bloo tries to give Cheese away. It did not work that way. Bloo locks Cheese in the bathroom, but he suddenly escapes. Then it is revealed that Louise was the person who imagined Cheese. This episode was great. Cheese was one of the best imaginary friends in the episode. I give this episode a 10.moreless
  • People...and imaginary friends...are all different.

    This is why Craig McCracken is a sheer genius. We are introduced by his real-life spouse Lauren Faust, to a mentally-challenged pair named Cheese and her creator, Louise.

    Our story finds Mac "accidently creating" a new friend named Cheese, who mouth acts like that of Kyle's brother, Ike of "South Park". He likes chocolate milk, but is lactose intolerant and cereal. Blooregard can't believe that some dummy created him, and when he finds out that Mac seemingly did, the chaos that follows is why this program should have been nominated for an Emmy. Sibling rivalry is not pretty, and can be good for a few laughs. Just look at the occasional "Everybody Loves Raymond" episode when Ray and his brother, Robert are jealous of one another. Give 'em credit for this story being a barrel of laughs.moreless
  • I like chocolate milk! XD And this is my official 50th review! YEA!

    This has to be the funniest Foster's episode yet! Mac wakes up to find a new imaginary friend in his bed, who calls him "Daddy". Bloo and Frankie are next to meet this new kid, who then wants chocolate milk. Bloo gives him some chocolate milk, but the imaginary friend pours it in a flower cup. Mac comes in and gives him juice because the friend, whose name is Cheese) is lactose intolerant (which is what I don't get; if he's lactose-intolerant, why does he say he likes chocolate milk?). Afterwards, Bloo and Mac are working on their go-karts, when Cheese comes in and wants to help too. When they were painting the car, Cheese wanted bunnies, and Bloo wanted hot-rod flames. So they ended up with bunnies on fire!! Then Cheese didn't want to go fast on the go-kart, he wanted to go very, very slow. Who knows why. The next morning, Bloo wakes up next to Cheese, and has images of his future when Cheese is still around. After he gets up, Cheese decides to bother everybody else. He bothers Eduardo saying that he likes cereal, which was pretty hilarious. Then he goes to bother Wilt when he wants some cereal on a high shelf. He finally bites him, and then he bothers Coco, saying "Coco" about a hundred times. (This was my favorite part!) Then he annoys Mr. Herriman next with the "Coco" ritual. Then he knocks over some food that Frankie was carrying. Frankie gives him back to Bloo, who is fed up with him entirely. He tries to get rid of him, but all of his plans fail. He finally decides to lock him in a closet. When Bloo finds out that Cheese has escaped from the closet, he gets frantic and goes on a search to find him. He finally finds him in the bathroom eating potatoes. Glad to finally find him, Bloo says that he's proud to have him as a little brother, when he realizes that Cheese belongs to Mac's neighbor, Louise. Bloo is relieved that he isn't related to him. (This was a pretty long review!) This is probably the funniest episodes in the series.moreless

Cheese says things like " I like chocolate milk, I like cereal!" and one of the others says I LIKE POTATOES!!! you hav to be there to actually think this is fuuny, so watch this ep now!!!moreless
  • Silly is an understatement!

    Oh my word, Cheese! Cheese is hilarious. Cheese is lovable. Cheese is also the perfect comic counterpart to the selfish Bloo.

    The comedy gems in this episode come from Bloo's obvious frustration with Cheese. Cheese is stupid, hyperactive and obstructive, much like your average little brother.

    There's also the silliness. I was laughing so hard I turned purple when the go kart goes down the hill, and over "I like cereal". Much of the humour isn't overly sophisiticated, from the puns to Cheese screaming. This is the fun of Fosters, it doesn't try to be something it's not. And this episode is a prime example of how you can be genuinely funny.

    Bloo's eventual affection for Cheese is sweet without being cloying. It's a wonderful episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Look Hard: When Frankie is telling Bloo that he can't use the drill look closely at the small place that's supposed to be a bathroom.Then why in "Emancipation Complication" it's supposed to be a closet?

    • After Cheese instantly gave Bloo some chocolate Milk, they was no chocolate milk on his face, but just as Mac appeared, in the shot they is some on his face.

    • When Bloo gives Cheese the Chocolate Milk its full then becomes empty. But when Cheese is giving Bloo the Chocolate Milk the glass is back to its full size.

    • When Bloo tells Cheese the name of the game where he locks him up is called "Sit still in the closet and be quiet for the rest of eternity," Cheese is actually locked in a bathroom, which those in Britain call a "water closet." Later, this fact is confirmed when Louise says the soap smells like feet.

    • (Cheese screams)

    • Mac: Bloo, but I thought you didn't like Cheese.
      Bloo: You know Mac, you're right. I didn't like Cheese. I had difficulty tolerating Cheese. And as far as I could tell, no one else had a taste for Cheese either... except the mice. (Mice gather around Cheese's feet) The mice like Cheese.
      Cheese: Hi, doggies.
      Bloo: But now, even though Cheese once made my stomach turn, I love Cheese. I hope to have my share of Cheese everyday, perhaps even for the rest of my life, even though Cheese smells. I think if we look deep into our hearts, I hope everyone learns to appreciate Cheese and embrace his unique... flavor, if you will. I love!
      (Hugs Cheese, small raspberry sound effect)
      Cheese: (Whispering) I pooted.

    • (After Cheese and Crackers were rejected for adoption by the passer-by, we see Crackers crying)
      Bloo: Sorry, Crackers, but I guess he was hungry. He must have wanted real crackers.
      Crackers: (Sobbing) That's what they ALL say! (Runs off crying)

    • Cheese: Now I'm a cowboy.
      Mac: Look, Bloo. I promise things won't be any different.

      Bloo: So?
      Mac: (Still sing-song) We can paint flames on the si-ides!
      Bloo: So?
      Mac: (Continues sing-song) We can ride down that huge hill on Mulberry La-ane!
      Bloo: (Brightens up) Oh, Mac! You mean it?
      Mac: Of course. Just like I promised.
      Bloo: Oh, Mac! You're the best kid an imaginary friend could ever - (Sees Cheese's toy horse pointing toward him) WILL YOU GET THAT THING AWAY FROM ME?!
      Cheese: (Starts to slowly comes up on screen then comes up faster) Now I'm a horsey! Baaaa! (Makes noises) Now you're the horsey! Giddyap! (Jumps on Bloo, tackling him) This floor tastes funny.

    • Bloo: (After almost walking into Cheese) Oh a..Hey there, little fella you might wanna watch where i'm going there.
      Cheese: I like chocolate milk!
      Bloo: Oooooooooooooookay...Well, nice meeting you.

    • Bloo: Thank goodness. Phew! Who'd wanna be related to him? I mean, jeez, Louise!

      Mac: Shut up. At least the bunnies are on fire. (Bloo and Mac get to the top of the hill) Cheese? Where are you? (Cheese comes up a second later) Cheese, where were you?
      Cheese: I have braces. (Grins and shows them off)
      Mac: You found them in the street, didn't you?
      Cheese: No, garbage can.

      Mac: Just get in!

      Cheese: Can I have some chocolate milk?
      Frankie: (through her teeth) Bloo! I'm right here and I'm a little busy! You get it!
      Bloo: Ah, fine! Come on.
