By now, most of us know the end of Monsters Inc. The Monsters discover that the screams they've been using as a power source are not the most optimized way to do business. Which, you know, is good to find out given the terror they've been puting generations of kids through. Thanks to the adventures of Sully, Mike and Boo, they find out laughter works even BETTER than the sreams. What I want to know, Theorists, is WHY that is and, more importantly, did the Monsters actually make a big MISTAKE?

    @The Film Theorists Just putting this out here. Screaming of fear is although louder, it’s in shorter intervals. Also after a few screams you might be out of breath not being able to scream as loud or scream at all. Laughter is in this perspective in longer and is around the same frequency trough the whole laugh. Saying that laughter would be more useful and powerful.

    Monster University confirms that adult screams are a lot more powerful but adults are a lot more dangerous because they will try and fight back and they might have guns. The monsters don't want to do a job where they'll most likely die or get badly injured

    I mean, the Pixar movies are pretty much centered around emotions being the source of everything, methaphisically. So as much as I love analyzing things scientifically, here you rather have the art that just puts imaginary, unexplained magic around emotions, and that's it.

    So it would seem that screams are the non-renewable energy reasource of the monster world. And laughter is the renewable energy source. Do you think they had protests in the monster world to switch to renewable energy, like the human world.
