Few want to go to work, but we’re excited to watch Monsters at Work online this week. Disney’s bringing back Mike and Sulley’s world of Monstropolis as we learn about what it’s like to be a new employee at Monsters, Incorporated. But Monsters at Work shows that the world’s changing and scaring is so 2020.
The series will track the early career of young monster Tylor Tuskmon (voiced by Ben Feldman of Superstore), who thrived at Monsters University as a scarer. Unfortunately for Tylor, he’s got to become a Jokester, and that won’t be easy. Before he can re-route his path, he’ll have to spend time with the misfit monsters in the mechanics team.
Since Mike and Sulley will appear, but not have the focus of the show on them, we’re hoping that Monsters at Work manages to capture the same senses of imagination and whimsy. The cast is nothing to scoff at, as Feldman is joined by Mindy Kaling (as Val) and the Fonz himself Henry Winkler (as Fritz).
Recurrent and returning cast members from Monsters, Inc. include Bonnie Hunt as Ms. Flint, Pixar regular John Ratzenberger as Yeti and Jennifer Tilly as Celia Mae. Aisha Tyler joins the cast as Millie Tuskmon.

Monsters at Work reviews
Rolling Stone’s TV critic Alan Sepinwall gave Monsters at Work a 3.5/5 star review and notes that Monsters at Work “is a clever inversion of the plot of Monsters University” and states that “Mike and Sulley don’t need to be part of Monsters at Work, but they’re fine, and the show around them is a promising enough start for this new phase of the brand’s existence.”
