About

Biggie Cheese is a rapping mouse character from the 2006 computer-animated comedy film Barnyard, who is named after the deceased rapper Biggie Smalls. Online, the character gained much notoriety after being featured in a series of screenshots depicting an erotic chat conversation.

Origin

On August 4th, 2006, Barnyard was released by Nickelodeon Movies. It centers around a farm of anthropomorphic animals who sing and dance while humans are not present. In the film, a rapping mouse named Biggie Cheese performs a cover of the 1995 dancehall song “Boombastic” by Shaggy. On May 7th, 2010, YouTuber sytg100 uploaded a clip of the scene, which gained over 360,000 views and 300 comments over the next seven years (shown below, left). On April 4th, 2011, YouTuber amir bayatra uploaded the Biggie Cheese scene with the 1996 rap song “Big Poppa” by Biggie Smalls playing in the background (shown below, right).

Spread

Over the next five years, the character received few mentions online. On November 6th, 2016, a parody YouTube channel for Biggie Cheese called “BiggieCheeseVEVO” uploaded its first video. [4] On November 20th, the Unironically Exposing Furries Worldwide Facebook [5] page posted screenshots of a chat conversation in which a person demands to role-play a sexual encounter with Biggie Cheese (shown below). The original post has since been deleted.

On November 21st, 2016, YouTuber Fudge uploaded a dramatic reading of the chat conversation (shown below, left). On November 23rd, YouTuber Gook Spook uploaded a remix of the song “Straight Outta Compton” over a spinning image of Biggie Cheese (shown below, center). Later in the month, a parody of the Watermelon Chicken video featuring a poorly-animated Biggie Cheese began circulating the internet. The parody (viewable here) gained thousands of smiles on iFunny after being posted by Hand_Eyes, an account specializing in videos based on Oobi hand puppets. [7] Biggie Cheese memes would go on to become closely associated with Oobi, as described in the “On iFunny” section below.

Also on November 23rd, Urban Dictionary [1] user Choose another name submitted an entry for “Biggie Cheese,” defining him as “one of the best rappers coming in 2017.” The following day, Redditor Hatewrecked submitted a post recommending viewers “buy all Biggie Cheese stocks ASAP” to the /r/MemeEconomy subreddit. [2] A subreddit called “Biggie Cheese Sanctuary” was also created. Meanwhile, the original roleplay screenshots were reposted on Imgur [3] by user Curiouspolice.

In December, Biggie Cheese developed a large ironic following on iFunny through images depicting him as a beloved icon of both furries and rappers. Over a thousand different posts on the site have been tagged with “biggiecheese” since the first Biggie image surfaced on November 28. [6] The “Biggie Cheese Challenge,” in which users pretend to bring Biggie Cheese into their roleplay chats, has become fairly popular on Facebook. [8]

Various Examples

On iFunny

On sites such as iFunny, images of Biggie Cheese are commonly associated with Otis the cow from Barnyard and the hand-puppet characters from Oobi (partly due to an episode of the show where they dress up like rock stars). In a fashion similar to Drakeposting and Triggering, many of these images exploit Biggie’s facial expressions to make it appear as if he is expressing approval or disapproval of other characters (below, left).

Biggie Cheese Gang Violence(Scary)

I saw a gang of rats attack a helpless squirrel behind Food Lion yesterday. They assaulted the squirrel then left him to die. I believe the squirrel was Simon from the popular boy band “The Chipmunks.” The ringleader of the gang known as “Ratalian Mafia” was iced out with a gold chain around his neck and a red beanie. This leads me to believe that the ringleader of the Ratalian Mafia is the well known rat-rapper “Biggie Cheese.” The Ratalian Mafia was trying to take Simon’s lunch money. It’s crazy how rappers think they can do whatever they want to innocent people just because they are famous. I even heard Biggie blasting his hit single “Mister Boombastic” on a UE Megaboom. Now everyone knows that Biggie Cheese is just another one of those “one-hit wonder” artists, so he must be running out of money from his hit single and has to resort to other means of getting that sweet, sweet bread. Taking Simon’s lunch money would seem like a solid way of gaining that grain.

Biggie cheese is one of the greatest artists to ever live, never disrespect greatness

I have a lot of respect for Biggie cheese. He was one of my favorite rappers, but after this I don’t like him as much. The song was still good though.

ATTENTION ALL UNITED STATES CIVILIANS, the safety and security of our land is in danger! Biggie Cheese is threatening the popular boy band “Alvin and the Chipmunks”! Alvin and his boys NEED your help! You can help by donating your savings account to Alvin and his pals, but hurry, because they could get subject to the dangerous effects of gang violence!

this is the most amazing masterpiece i have ever read in my entire life, keep up the good work

This is scary this makes me scared in my own neighborhood

Very concerning information. I am confident that the Paw Patrol will arrest Biggie cheese and finally crack down on the ratalian mafia.

This rat just made one song and dipped. Thanks for the heads up on gang violence. Now I know to be careful wherever I go.

No way that’s right down my street! I really hope he doesn’t come down to my neighborhood
