Monster’s At Work – Episode 6
With the success of Loki, Disney decided to move their new original shows to Wednesday releases. Those Wednesday releases remain in place with Disney’s newest computer-animated series, Monsters at Work. Monsters at Work follows your favorite Monstropolis residents Mike and Sully as they run the Monsters, Inc. Disney describes the fun new show:
“Monsters At Work” takes place the day after the Monsters, Incorporated power plant started harvesting the laughter of children to fuel the city of Monstropolis, thanks to Mike and Sulley’s discovery that laughter generates ten times more energy than screams. It follows the story of Tylor Tuskmon, an eager young monster who graduated top of his class at Monsters University and always dreamed of becoming a Scarer until he lands a job at Monsters, Incorporated, and discovers that scaring is out and laughter is in. After Tylor is temporarily reassigned to the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (MIFT), he must work alongside a misfit bunch of mechanics while setting his sights on becoming a Jokester.
