Produced by Disney Television Animation and inspired by the world of Disney and Pixar’s Oscar-winning Monsters, Inc., the series picks up six months after the original movie’s story, with the Monsters, Inc. power plant now harvesting the laughter of children to fuel the city of Monstropolis, thanks to Mike and Sulley’s discovery that laughter generates ten times more energy than screams.
Other returning cast members from the original movies (the 2011 Monsters, Inc. and 2013 sequel Monsters University) include John Ratzenberger as Yeti and the new character, Bernard; Jennifer Tilly as Celia Mae; and Bob Peterson as Roze, twin sister to his original Monsters, Inc. character, Roz.
