Main Plot

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, two monsters realize things may not be what they think.


  • Billy Crystal's character, Mike Wazowski, is a comedic monster who helps his friend Sulley navigate the world of scare collecting.
  • John Goodman's character in Monsters, Inc. is a lovable and friendly monster named James P. Sullivan, also known as Sulley.
  • Mary Gibbs plays the role of Boo, a toddler who accidentally enters the monster world and becomes friends with the main characters.


In the ending of Monsters, Inc., the energy crisis is resolved as Sulley and Mike discover laughter is more powerful than screams. They rebuild the company with a new focus on making children laugh instead of scaring them. Boo, the little girl who befriended Sulley, returns home, but her door is shredded and discarded. However, Sulley surprises her with a rebuilt door, allowing them to continue their friendship. The film ends with Sulley's promotion as the new CEO of Monsters, Inc., marking a positive change for the monster world.
