Monstrously good fun; MONSTERSINC CHRISTMAS DAY, BBC1,3.55pm.

Most children, and the odd adult, believe there are creatures lurking underneath their beds or inside their wardrobes.

This fantastic animation from the geniuses at Pixar uses that fear and gives it a whole new spin. Sulley (voiced by John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal) certainly fit the 'monster' category, but they don't terrorise kids for the fun of it - it's their job.

Employed by a power company in a world linked to ours through cupboard doors, they use the screams of youngsters to harvest valuably energy. But there's a catch - humans are toxic, making the work of a 'scarer' a very dangerous business.

Giant furball Sulley is good at his job but when cute little Boo follows him back to his own dimension, all hell breaks loose. The kind-hearted hirsute hero must find a way to return her to back to Earth, but his bosses seem determined to wreck his friendship with the cute toddler. Enthralling
