Premise[edit | edit source]

It's a comedy that follows the offbeat adventures of a small gang of childish friends through pop culture references and dairy puns in a world populated by anthropomorphic sentient pieces of cheese.

"I like to think of CheeseWars as sorta Les Misérables meet The Simpsons".

Availability[edit | edit source]

Almost nothing is found online about the series besides one episode[1], a duology of shorts based on Hamlet[2], an interview of the author on Arts & Minds and a synopsis of Hamlet Act 2:

"Very enjoyable jokey computer animation, depicting Hamlet’s encounter with the ghost. There is more invention here in three minutes than many films have at thirty times the length. Swooping camera, dynamic low-level tracking shots, striking changes in angle, surprise visual references (the use of a slot machine), grand music and of course the unexpected factor of having the parts played by what the filmmaker calls mutant teddy bears. Yes it’s silly, but all the words are there, and it’s done in a spirit of affectionate fun."[3]
