* This is the type of cheese that shows up most often in ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' -- with one exception. Since Garfield likes mice and doesn't want to harm them (and would be too lazy to do so even if he did), Jon has to put out traps baited with cheese. The chunks of cheese in the traps are not round ''or'' wedged, but appear almost featureless (perhaps the most approximate shape would be "semicircle").

* Emmentaler cheese is probably the closest thing to Cartoon Cheese in real life. It's the Swiss cheese after which so-called "Swiss cheese" is named, it comes in wheels, and it's full of holes. It's not as bright a shade of yellow as in cartoons, however, and has a pretty mild taste & smell.
* In Sweden, this type of cheese (1 (yellow), 2, and 3 together) is a very common type.

* Done in ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddparents''. In particular the episode "Power Mad", where ninja bunnies shoot carrots right through fairy Cosmo, riddling him with holes - he reappears later after the simulation with holes still in his body. Cosmo: "look I'm cheese." Also used in "Cheese and Crockers" where Crocker gains cheese powers - the cheese he uses are all orange.

* The Garfield Show: Slightly averted where TV star and chef, Eddie Gormon, opens "Cheese Land", an amusement park made entirely out of cheese. Slighty averted, where there's slightly more cheese varieties seen (bleu, cheddar, american) but are overshadowed by most of the cartoon cheese making up the amusement park.

Cheese which is ''not'' this strange amalgam of traits (well, at least the first three) is almost never present, except sometimes incidentally as a sandwich ingredient. The most likely trait to get skipped is the "stinky" part. Orange-yellow cheese that's full of holes is still everywhere. Cheez Whiz doesn't show up too often, perhaps because [[ViewersAreMorons animators fear viewers will mistake it for mustard]].

** In fact, the creator, Stephen Hillenburg, decided to include the word "Sponge" in the character's name specifically because he believed that, if he didn't, audiences would think SpongeBob was an anthropomorphic block of cheese.

Of course, in addition to Swiss and Limburger [[BlessedAreTheCheesemakers just being funny,]] there's a practical reason behind this trope as well, which is based on the RuleOfPerception. In a cartoon, a large, nondescript block of something yellow or white could be just about anything. A bar of gold? Butter? Lard? A white brick? Giving cheese these distinct traits helps identify to the audience that "Yes! This is cheese you're looking at." Of course, this works best if you don't ''name'' the cheese in question.

Commonly seen as part of a LevelAte. Also see BlessedAreTheCheesemakers.

* An episode of ''Series/FamilyMatters'' had Urkel create a ''MortalKombat'' style video game with one character based on himself. One attack the character had was to yell "Have some CHEESE!" while throwing Cartoon Cheese at the opponent.

Subverted, however, in another episode in which he annoyed Carl by showing a slideshow of all his favorite cheeses - some of which look nothing like stereotypical cheese. ("A bodacious Brie!")
