Monsters Inc. Monsters only target kids rich enough to have their own room and closets, amirite?

Trailer, Camp cabin, they have a bunk bed "scare" in one of the training montages, see 2 beds in a room a few times when they running/climbing through doors. My guess is they use doors that are safe for them more often with the belief that humans are toxic, and doors that bring in the most screams.

@bibbitybobbitybacon So really the rich kids theory kinda checks out, in my opinion.

I guess you're right no one wants to open the door to a porto potty.

@Nickyikky I guess you're right no one wants to open the door to a porto potty.

Lmao. I'm imagining a monster opening the door and immediately gagging and slamming it shut.

In the movie it's also shown that you can reject doors that are sent to you, so it makes sense that we never saw poorer rooms until the montage where they were travelling through the massive door transport area.

Didn't one of them mention something about racking up the screams at a slumber party?

Yeah, but those kids without their own rooms and closets have seen far worse monsters in real life. They're not scared.

They don't target British kids, in the uk closets are rare we have wardrobes

Wait what explains the monsters Inc lore? They only had closets in a majority of homes in the US in the 50s or something around then. Did they come out of clothing dressers before?

What I really want to is what happens if a kid leaves their closet door open at night. Will the monsters' door not work since they need to be able to open the kids' door?

Seems like they just randomly generate doors and destroy the ones that don't work well for generating fear.

Duh, that's not just in the movies; why would a monster show up under the bed or in the closet if you're sleeping with mom and dad? Anyone knows they only show up when you're alone!

To be honest kids that don't have their own rooms/closets probably wouldn't scare as easily as those with them. They been through enough already

Spoken like someone that didn't pay attention during the movie.

There was also a camp bunk room. And of course the iconic "twins! In a bunk bed!"
So maybe they prefer the safety of single kid rooms, but it's not exclusive.

Nah Randal appears in a trailer and gets beat up at the end it stands to reason there's no rooms with a closet in a trailer

Poor kids have seen the horrors of this world. Rich kids on the other hand.....their screams of terror are pure and unadulterated!

There was a bunk- With a lot of kids sleeping in the same place

The real question is, if they need scream to power doors to gather scream, then how did they initially power the first doors?

A Monsters Inc. set during WWII could be unbelievably dark. The pitch meeting alone would…

"…and then Sully's granddad pops in on Anne Frank! Hilarity ensues. Whadya think?"

"Jesus, Artie - how much blow did you do this morning?"

Monsters can't scare a poor child who lives with the daily reminder that they will probably die in the same trailer park they were born in.

Is having an own room and closet considered being rich now lol?

Balances out the fact that they are also the only ones getting great pulls from Santa Claus

That movie taught me how our own society is run by fear. That we aren't truly free to do what we want

They were milking fear. Nobody has more fear (of loss) than folks with a good life. Scaring the privilege out of kids was just efficient

Monsters Inc targeted the kids that had nothing to worry about. The poor kids got a rough life. Randall being the antagonist bad guy attacked a poor kid in a trailer park
