MONSTERS, INC. is an animated adventure in which monsters need to collect children's screams to power their world, but when two monsters befriend a lost human child they try to get her safely home.

Violence

In one scene the villain turns invisible and starts hitting a hero monster, but to onlookers he appears to be comically jerking around.

There are scenes in which colourful monsters 'scare' children, but these moments are not intended to actually scare young viewers. Chase sequences place an emphasis on excitement and humour rather than threat, and while the child character is occasionally scared of the villain the heroes are there to protect and comfort her. In a couple of sequences, characters are threatened as they are put into the seat of a machine which tries to extract their screams by sucking them out through their mouths, but human girl is quickly saved when confronted with the machine.
