Mac and Cheese (also known as Macaroni and Cheese) is the 41st Silly Song with Larry.
Larry explains about how his ancestors invented the famous dish, Macaroni and Cheese.
The Announcer: And now it's time for Silly Songs with Larry. The part of the show where Larry comes out and sings a silly song. We joined Larry as he recounts the amazing tale of his family's invention of macaroni and cheese.
Larry: It's true! I will explain it to you! As only an opera can do! My... Great (24x) grandfather and my Great (19x) grandmother. I forget how many greats. Well, they lived in different families
Families: Lived in different families
Larry: Who didn't like each other...
Antonio: My name's Antonio Cucaroni and we eats-a pasta only.
Cucaroni 1: Buscantni, Rigatoni
Cucaroni 2: We like-a penne
Cucaroni 3: Cannelloni
Antonio: But don't call them noodles
Cucaronis: Ha ha ha ha ha
Momma Cumberisi: My name-a Momma Cumberisi and our food's extremely cheesy. Gorgonzola
Cumberisi Kid 1: Eww, it's smelly
Cumberisi Kid 2: But I still want some in my belly
Momma Cumberisi: That's because we like our food extremely cheesy
Cumberisis: Ha ha ha ha ha
Antonio: Have you met my son-a Tony? He makes a mean-a macaroni
Momma Cumberisi: My Maria makes a charming saucy cheese. Someday she'll meet a man-a. Who comes from her own clan-a
Antonio: No son of mine will ever marry a Cumberis...i
Larry: My Great (24x) grandfather and my Great (19x) grandmother. I still forget how many greats. Though their families were enemies, Maria and Tony liked each other.
(both carts of pasta and cheese sauce roll away, Tony and Maria hop on them, but crash because of rocks and results a glob of macaroni and cheese, the families were not happy)
Momma Cumberisi: (gasps) It's his fault!
Antonio Cucaroni: Her fault!
Momma Cumberisi: Your fault!
Larry: No, it's their fault. The families were having a fit. Maria and Tony were tasting
Tony: Iiiiit's... impastably delicious
Maria: It's incheddarably delightful
Tony: There's a piece on your lips
Both: We shouldn't miss this biteful
(both of them sigh, then they're about to kiss, only to get interrupted by Larry)
Larry: Wait, wait, wait, wait a minute! (groans) This is my grandparents! Nothin' to see here! (whispers) Let's just skip to the end. That's how my Great (24x) grandfather and my Great (19x) grandmother, I still don't know how many greats, but they brought together the families.
Families: Brought together the families
Larry: And invented Macaroni and Cheese (continues singing until Momma and Antonio stop arguing)
Momma Cumberisi: It's cheese and macaroni!
Antonio: It's macaroni and cheese!
Larry: It's Great (9x)
Announcer: This has been Silly Songs with Larry. Tune in next time to hear Antonio say...
- The third Cucaroni has the same voice as Scallion 2.
- This is the last Silly Song to use the original designs.
- The title card is just an edited photo of Larry with macaroni and cheese.
- Larry's grandfather has 24 "greats", while his grandmother has 19. Larry acknowledges this stating he forgot how many "greats" he said.
- Many of the models for the family members are the same ones as Larry, though it is justified since it's Larry's family.
- Larry was flipping the book to the page of Maria, even though she's already the page after Tony.
- This is the third Silly Song to be done as an opera, the second being Larry's High Silk Hat, and the first being The Hairbrush Song.

- Antonio's "It's-a-Great!" is a coined catchphrase from Tony the Tiger whenever he sponsors Kellogg's Frosted Flakes.
