Instead of joining the rest of the class at the Planetarium, Eric Cartman sneaks off and auditions for a Cheesy Poofs commercial. He is hired to be in the advertisement, where he is dressed to look like a gigantic Cheesy Poof. Every time Cartman sings the song, the producers cut it and think it is wrong. For the commercial's final cut, Cartman's act was cut and replaced with a more elaborate commercial with a professional singer singing the theme song. The sole uncut part was Cartman in costume saying "lame". Despite this obvious case of misrepresentation, Cartman is thrilled at being on TV.
- The Cheesy Poofs Theme Song has the same melody as the theme for NPR's All Things Considered.
- The theme song can be heard when a Cheesy Poofs power up is used in South Park: Big Wheel Death Rally.
I love cheesy poofs.
You love cheesy poofs.
If we didn't eat cheesy poofs,
We'd be LAME!
