From the Academy Award®-winning creators of ``Toy Story'' comes MONSTERS, INC., the hilarious new computer-animated feature that opens the door to a world of monsters and mayhem and scares up lots of laughs in the process. MONSTERS, INC. is the largest scare factory in the monster world and the top kid Scarer is James P. Sullivan (John Goodman, ``The Emperor's New Groove''), a huge, intimidating monster with blue fur, large purple spots and horns, known as ``Sulley'' to his friends. His Scare Assistant, best friend and roommate is Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal, ``America's Sweethearts''), a lime green, opinionated, feisty monster. Scaring children isn't such an easy job, as monsters believe children are toxic and that direct contact with them would be catastrophic. The film's eclectic cast of characters also includes the factory's crab-like CEO Henry J. Waternoose (James Coburn, Academy Award® winner, Best Supporting Actor, ``Affliction'' 1997), the beguiling serpent-haired receptionist Celia (Jennifer Tilly, ``Stuart Little'') and the sarcastic chameleon monster, Randall Boggs (Steve Buscemi, ``Ghost World''), who schemes to replace Sulley as Monsters, Inc.'s top Scarer. Visiting from the human world is Boo (Mary Gibbs), a tiny girl who turns the monster world upside down and teaches Sulley and Mike that laughter is more powerful than a scream.

MONSTERS, INC. is rated ``G'' with a running time of approximately 94 minutes. Bonus materials not rated and subject to change.

Walt Disney Home Video is distributed by Buena Vista Home Entertainment, Inc., a recognized industry leader. Buena Vista Home Entertainment, Inc. is the marketing, sales and distribution company for Walt Disney, Touchstone, Miramax, Dimension and Buena Vista videocassettes and DVDs.
