A wonderful film to share with children
Monsters, Inc. is the power utility in Monstropolis, a city inhabited by monsters. The company sends its "scarers," monsters employed to frighten human children, to children's bedrooms around the world through individually-loaded and activated teleportation doors. Each door precisely matches a closet door in an individual child's bedroom. The scarers then frighten the children badly enough to cause them to scream. The screams are then captured through the portals and stored for later use in power generation for the monster world.
It is understood, however, that the children themselves are toxic, and the company goes to great lengths to prevent contact with them; should a monster be touched by a child, or even by their belongings, the Child Detection Agency (CDA) is immediately alerted to sanitize the affected being. With growing numbers of children becoming desensitized by mass media, Monsters, Inc. CEO Henry J. Waternoose is finding it increasingly difficult to harvest enough scream to meet the power demands of Monstropolis. As a result, an energy crisis looms.
