Another classic from Disney and Pixar, this is an endlessly hilarious tale of two bedroom monsters working at the factory of Monsters, Inc.  and more than ably voice the characters, best friends who work hard nine to five scaring children out of their beds all over the world, to collect the tots’ screams which are then used as energy to power their city. Trouble comes when Goodman happens upon a child who has accidentally escaped through her bedroom door into the monster world, a big problem considering children are considered to be virulent by the bigwig monsters who run the city. Goodman keeps the kid around and grows attached to it, inciting only bigger trouble from resident bad guy . A climactic roller coaster ride caper scene is heartstopping, and the quality of animation will take your breath away, plus it’s really funny.
