About This Quiz

Pixar Studios has a way of turning everything into gold, and when they released "Monsters Inc." back in 2001, it was no different. It was only Pixar's 4th film at the time, but the first three had been "Toy Story," "A Bug's Life," and "Toy Story 2" so there was a lot to live up to. Luckily the movie didn't disappoint and is now firmly entrenched as one of the best in Pixar's history. The characters, the story, the whole idea was pretty fantastic, and it was popular enough to merit not just a prequel but a series that's going to air on Disney+, so good job for everyone in Monstropolis.

It's hard to say exactly what it was that made the movie so popular - the story and the voice acting are both fantastic, but there's also something to the idea that appeals to the kid in everyone. Who hasn't been afraid of a monster at one point or another? It's the kind of movie that makes you wish you could be a part of that world, if only for a little while. Lucky for you we're on the same page! All you have to do is answer a few simple questions, and we'll see just which "Monsters Inc." character you are.
