Monsters, Inc. premiered in the United States on October 28, 2001, and went into general release on November 2, 2001 with the best opening ticket sales ever for an animated film and the sixth best of all time.
The story is set in Monstropolis, a city inhabited by monsters who live in deep fear of children which they believe will kill them simply by touching them. Ironically, the city's power comes from the screams of children which are bottled and converted to energy by Monsters Incorporated. "Scarers" work to frighten the children and are regarded as the heroes of Monstropolis for being brave enough to enter a child's room.
The top scarer at Monsters, Inc. is James P. Sullivan, or "Sulley" (John Goodman), a blue-furred bear-like giant who is partnered with the green, one-eyed Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal); Sully's main rival is the chameleon-like Randall Boggs. When taking care of paperwork, Sulley discovers a door that has been left on the scare-floor after shift, contrary to strict company policy. When Sulley investigates the door, a small human girl enters the monster world; not only that but he & Mike also learn that the girl is actually a victim of an evil plot to solve the city's power problems. It's up to Sully and Mike to get her back home before the authorities find out and before the company gets turned upside down. Along the way, they discover that children are not dangerous and that scaring is no longer rewarding. They have numerous encounters with Randall, with the "Scream Extractor", the spider-like head of Monsters, Inc., Mr. Waternoose, and the Abominable Snowman. In the end, they solve their world's energy crisis when they find out that a child's laughter has ten times the power of a scream; thus, all the monsters have a new mission: to sneak into children's rooms at night and make them laugh.
