The Monsters, Inc. series is a series of films, short films, video games, books, comics, and more, created by Pixar. The series takes place in the "monster world", a separate dimension from the "human world", a world where electricity is powered by the laughter of children (previously screams), which are obtained by employed monsters entering doors and making children laugh.

The installments generally focus around the adventures of Mike and Sulley, two monsters that first met at college.
