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.
On the scare floor leader board, the name immediately below Sullivan and Randall is Ranft, a reference to longtime Pixar writer Joe Ranft.
All right, Mr. Bile, is it?
Bile: Uh, my friends call me Phlem.
Flint: Uh-huh, Mr. Bile, can you tell me what you did wrong?
Bile: I fell down?
Flint: No, No, before that.
Flint: Can anyone tell me Mr. Bile's big mistake? Anyone?
Flint: Alright let's check footage, right there. The Door! ...
In the commercial, we are told that Monsters Inc. matches children to the monster that is likely to scare them most. The monster in the beginning who demonstrated the 'dead door' said that his child was only six. Wouldn't they cut down on dead doors if they matched the door to a different monster who'd scare it more?
No monsters were harmed in the making of this motion picture.
Starting 7 December 2001 outtakes were added to the end credit sequence of the theatrical release, showing bloopers such as Sulley tripping over the top scarers, and a new scene at the very end of the credits in which Mike makes good on his promise and produces the company play, "Put That Thing Back Where It Came From or So Help Me", a musical version of the entire film. Both endings are available in the collectors edition DVD: the original credits are on the widescreen version of the film, the bloopers and company play on the fullscreen version.
