Mayor McCheese is the Mayor of McDonaldland. He has an enormous cheeseburger for a head, and sports a top hat, a diplomat's sash, and a pair of pince-nez spectacles. He is portrayed as a giggly, bumbling, somewhat incompetent mayor with a wavering, high-pitched voice that is reminiscent to that of comic actor Ed Wynn (provided by Howard Morris). The character was dropped during the streamlining of the characters in the 1980s. He did, however, appear in a 1999 McDonaldland VHS entitled, "Have Time, Will Travel".
He seeks plastic surgery in "Believe It or Not, Joe's Walking on Air". Dr. Hartman rejects his request since McCheese has a cheeseburger for a head. Mayor McCheese thanks Dr. Hartman for telling him the straight facts.
In "Road to the Multiverse", he appears as President of the United States in a reality where Frank Sinatra had never been born to influence John F. Kennedy's election. Richard Nixon then botches the Cuban Missile Crisis plunging the Earth into World War III. Mayor McCheese is the one who was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald with his wife Jackie McCheese, eating the meat that was shot off.
He was voiced by John Viener.
