5 of the geekiest monsters ever

2013-06-20 12:37
Monsters are suppose to be scary - but not this lot. We absolutely love these geeky monsters from the new Monsters University movie and thought these five nerds would have you screaming with laughter rather than fear.

The five geekiest monsters are:

1. Mike Wazowski's lifelong dream is to become a Scarer at Monsters, Inc.—and he's sure he knows just how to do it. Ever since he was a young monster, Mike's had his eye on Monsters University, home of the world's top Scare Program. Now a freshman and hopeful Scare student, he's well versed in the rich history, theory and technique required to reach his goal, and the little green one-eyed monster has more confidence, enthusiasm, determination and heart than all of his classmates combined.

2. When it comes to Scaring, James P. Sullivan “Sulley” is a natural—his abundant size, fierce roar and family legacy of a long line of high-achieving Scarers make him a shoo-in for the esteemed Scare Program at Monsters University. But from the moment the overly confident monster steps his big furry feet on campus, it's clear he'd rather crack jokes than books—and he learns the hard way that his unfettered talent and family ties can only get him so far.

3. Monsters University freshman Randy Boggs has big aspirations for college life. The peculiar lizard-like monster with his host of gangly arms and legs plans to major in Scaring and lead an active social life filled with fun, friends and fraternity parties. If only he could get his embarrassing disappearing habit under control, he'd be good to go, because how is he ever going to be a great Scarer if nobody can see him?

4. Faced with the realities of the economic downturn, Midwestern sales monster Don Carlton finds himself going back to school to learn new skills and pursue a dream career in Scaring. One of Monsters University's "mature" students and a founding member of the Oozma Kappa fraternity, Don brings his honest hardworking spirit to their endeavours, ensuring that his fellow brothers keep their various heads on straight and their array of eyes on the task at hands.

5. Scott Squibbles gives new meaning to the term "undeclared." A sophomore whose dream of becoming a Scarer was squashed in his first year at Monsters University, "Squishy" is a bit of a wide-eyed wanderer—small, sweet, naïve and quiet—who, not surprisingly, still lives with his doting mother. But with a little help from his Oozma Kappa brothers, Squishy begins to realise he's more than just that shy monster in the corner.
