What is 'Monsters at Work' about? Meet the new (and old!) characters.

The show follows original characters Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James P. "Sulley" Sullivan (John Goodman) after the events in Monsters Inc. (but before the happenings in the epilogue), when the Monstropolis residents realize that laughter is better fuel than fear.

The two heads of Monsters Incorporated are joined at work by a few new characters: Tylor Tuskmon (Ben Feldman) and Val Little (Mindy Kaling), who are both mechanics.

The star-studded voice cast also includes Alanna Ubach as Katherine "Cutter" Sterns, a rule-oriented employee, Henry Winkler as Fritz, who is Val's boss, and Lucas Neff as Duncan, a plumber who is willing to do whatever it takes to take Fritz's job.

Cheaper By the Dozen star Bonnie Hunt has a recurring voice role on the show as Ms. Flint. John Ratzenberger (Yeti), Jennifer Tilly (Celia Mae), and Bob Peterson (Roz) are reprising their Monsters, Inc. roles in recurring capacities as well.
