Taglines: Since the very first bedtime, all around the world, children have known that once their mothers and fathers tuck them in, and shut off the light, that there are MONSTERS hiding in their closets, waiting to emerge! What they don’t know is: it’s nothing personal. It’s just their job.
In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The action of the fascinating cartoon takes place in a fictional city called Monstropolis, where a variety of monsters live.In fact, monsters exist. Shaggy, toothy, huge, miniature, wielding sharp claws and teeth, the monsters climb into the rooms of small children at night and scare them to death with their luminous eyes, huge black wings, fangs and more. But monsters do this not just like that, but to ensure that their city has constant energy, without which the city will simply disappear. The fact is that the cry of a human cub is the only source of energy for Monstropolis, so all the terrible monsters have to come into people from time to time and scare the kids.
Over time, this duty turned into a real pleasure for the monsters. They even created a special university in which young monsters are taught the right way to scare children. Sullivan and Mike Wazowski enter the university, who dream that they will someday go to the world of people and do useful work. The main problem of Mike is that he is absolutely not scary, and therefore he has much less chance than the rest of those who entered. And Sully’s main problem is annoying and annoying Mike.

In a world inhabited by monsters, the city of Monstropolis is powered by energy from the screams of human children. At the Monsters, Inc. factory, skilled monsters employed as “scarers” venture into the human world to scare children and harvest their screams, through doors that activate portals to children’s bedroom closets. The field is considered dangerous, as human children are believed to be toxic. Energy production is falling because children are becoming less easily scared, and the company’s CEO, Henry J. Waternoose III, is determined to find a solution to the problem. James P. “Sulley” Sullivan and his best friend, Michael “Mike” Wazowski, are the organization’s top employees, but their chief rival, Randall Boggs, is close behind. One evening after work, Sulley discovers that someone has left an active door on the scare floor. As he inspects the door, a small girl enters the factory. After several failed attempts by Sulley to put her back, Randall sends the door back into the factory’s door storage vault, and Sulley takes the girl out of the factory in a duffel bag. He inadvertently interrupts Mike’s date with his receptionist girlfriend, Celia Mae, at a Japanese sushi restaurant, and chaos erupts when the girl gets loose. Sulley and Mike manage to escape with the girl before the Child Detection Agency (CDA) arrives and quarantines the restaurant. They soon discover that the girl is not toxic, and that her laughter generates an immense amount of power. Sulley grows attached to her and calls her “Boo”, while Mike is anxious to be rid of her.
The duo smuggle Boo back into the factory disguised as a baby monster and attempt to send her home, but Randall, who had been waiting in ambush for Boo, mistakenly kidnaps Mike. He straps Mike to the “Scream Extractor”, a large machine capable of forcefully extracting screams from kidnapped human children, thus solving the monster world’s energy crisis. Before Randall can test the machine on Mike, Sulley saves Mike, and the pair report to Waternoose about Randall’s plan. However, Waternoose had been in league with Randall and exiles Mike and Sulley to the Himalayas while keeping Boo with him. The two are taken in by the Abominable Snowman, who tells them about a nearby village, which Sulley realizes he can use to return to the factory. Sulley prepares to return, but Mike refuses to go with him, blaming Sulley’s stubbornness for their situation. Sulley returns to the factory and rescues Boo from the Scream Extractor, but is attacked by Randall. Mike returns to reconcile with Sulley and accidentally helps him overpower Randall. With Randall in pursuit, Mike and Sulley take Boo and escape into the door vault. Mike invokes Boo’s laughter, which causes all the doors to activate at once, allowing the monsters to freely pass in and out of the human world. Randall attempts to kill Sulley, but Boo overcomes her fear of Randall and attacks him, enabling Sulley to catch him. Sulley and Mike then trap Randall in the human world, where two residents at a trailer park mistake him for an alligator and beat him with a shovel.
Mike and Sulley locate Boo’s door, but Waternoose, accompanied by the CDA, brings the door down to the scare floor. Mike distracts the CDA while Sulley escapes with Boo and her door. He leads the pursuing Waternoose into the company’s simulation room, where Mike records Waternoose angrily declaring his plan to salvage the company by kidnapping children. As Waternoose is arrested by the CDA, he reprimands Sulley for destroying the company and worsening the energy crisis. The scare floor administrator Roz reveals herself to be the head of the CDA, who had been working undercover to find the mastermind of the company’s internal actions. Roz thanks Mike and Sulley for their help and allows Sulley to return Boo home, but she has Boo’s door demolished to prevent any monsters from making further contact with her. Sulley, inspired by his experiences with Boo, concocts a plan to retool the company’s power generation method to harvest children’s laughter instead of screams, as laughter is ten times more potent. With the energy crisis solved, Sulley is named the new CEO of Monsters, Inc. Mike takes Sulley aside, revealing he has rebuilt Boo’s door. It needs one final piece, which Sulley took as a memento, in order to work. Sulley puts the door chip into place, enters and joyfully reunites with Boo.
