Monroe wanders into a factory and accidentally trips a lever activating the factory "machinery’ which is an assembly line of fablemakers who create fabulous fables. Then he meets the factory owner, Mr. Aloysius A. Aesop, who introduces Monroe to the machinery. Among them are Straucy, the Story Starter; Pluto, the Plot Plotter; Wadsworth, the Word Worker; and Gretel, the Grammar Guardian. The factory proceeds to create and enact stories which become official fables when Monroe himself surprises everyone by supplying the morals as the new-found "Moral Maker".
