Anatole is a Parisian mouse who feels bad about stealing food. At the Duval Cheese Factory, he figures out how he can EARN a living. Anatole and his friend, Gaston, visit the cheese factory each evening and review the merits of each kind of cheese. They leave notes behind, with suggestions for improvement. Monsieur Duval, the factory owner, is most impressed and asks to meet Anatole. This is impossible, of course, so Monsieur Duval writes him a letter, making him the FIRST VICE-PRESIDENT IN CHARGE OF CHEESE TASTING. Now Anatole has permission to eat all the bread and cheese he wants!
