by Bill Chambers On a school trip to Monsters, Incorporated, young cyclops Mike Wazowski, the kind of fellow who gets saddled with the teacher when his classmates choose partners, sneaks onto the scaring platform and follows one of the scarers through one of the closet-door terminals. Rather than reprimand him, the scarer tells him he might have what it takes to be a scarer, and gives Mike his cap, Mean Joe Green-style. The hat bears the logo of the scarer's alma mater, Monsters University; an undergrad is born.
