MAURICE LE RAT is a very artsy French rat. Since he is French, he talks in a French accent. He talks as if he is an authority on art and painting, something of a braggart. He informs guests of all the structures he has painted in the park, things like the Super Teepee, the Carousel, the Big Wheel, and the Great Arena. Then to show his artistic taste he sizes things up with his thumb and continues to explain how he could make something look better. He is attracted to all sorts of colors, possibly picking out a guest who is wearing a favorite color of his.
