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