Party Central

Party Central is a 2014 computer animated short produced by Pixar Animation Studios for Walt Disney Pictures and directed by Kelsey Mann. It premiered May 29, 2013 at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California and was shown in theaters with Muppets Most Wanted on March 24, 2014. Party Central is the second short in the Monsters, Inc. franchise and takes place shortly after the events of Monsters University. The short involves Mike and Sulley helping their Oozma Kappa fraternity brothers make their party a success.


Mike and Sulley are visiting Monsters University for the weekend to see how their Oozma Kappa fraternity brothers are doing. The group is throwing its first party, but no one has shown up. However, Mike and Sulley have a plan to liven up the house. Using a borrowed door station, they sneak into a party at the Roar Omega Roar fraternity and steal all of its food and guests to fill the Oozma Kappa house. The supply runs take them through the closet doors of a married couple's bedroom, repeatedly disturbing their sleep.
