Summary
In the world behind our closet doors, James P. "Sulley" Sullivan and Mike Wazowski work hard. To be exact, monsters like Mike and Sulley pick up their paychecks at Monsters Inc., the utility company that generates energy for the monster world from our children's screams. These days, it's getting harder and harder to shock kids properly--they've been spoiled by television--so much so that now there's an energy shortage! One day Sulley, the number one frightener, accidentally lets a human child in, and as every monster knows that kids are poisonous, pandemonium ensues. Mike and Sulley decide to take the little girl back through her door into her room. But her presence is more than just a mere accident, and now, Mike and Sulley have to face an enemy within their own ranks. Can they foil a devious plot to rid Monstropolis of its power problems?
