Taking place after the main events of Monsters, Inc. (but before everything is back to working order, as seen in the last few minutes of Monsters, Inc.), Monsters at Work picks up after Sulley (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) have uncovered the company conspiracy and Henry J. Waternoose III has been hauled in by the authorities, which also just happens to be the very first day that brand new scarer Tylor Tuskmon (Ben Feldman) joins the company. Now forced to forgo his entire education, Tylor hangs with the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team as he brushes up on his comedy chops while Mike and Sulley do their best to keep the lights on.
So, how does this new Disney+ series hold up to the previous Monsters tales? Here are a few important plot points to remember, as well as a few running gags and Easter eggs that made it into the small-screen show.
