What is Monsters at Work about?
The original series picks up where the action of Monsters Inc. left off. Professional scarers Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James “Sulley” Sullivan (John Goodman) are leading an energy source transition for their home of Monstropolis — casting aside the harvesting of children’s terrified screams as fuel in favor of their much more energy-efficient laughter instead.

Tylor Tuskmon (Ben Feldman) is a young Scare major graduate of Monsters University who joins Monsters Incorporated dreaming of teaming up with the legendary scarers (turned jokesters) Mike Wazowski and Sulley, whom the greenhorned — or more accurately purplehorned — Tylor Tuskmon idolizes.
From the official Disney+ synopsis of Monsters at Work:
Tyler Tuskmon (Ben Feldman) graduates top of his class from Monsters University and arrives at Monsters Incorporated to begin his dream job as a Scarer… or not. The day he’s set to begin, he learns they don’t want Scarers…they want Jokesters! Tylor is temporarily reassigned to the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team. This change shatters Tylor’s plan, but he set his sights on a new goal: becoming a Jokester.
