In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
In a distant, but not so unrealistic, future where mankind has abandoned earth because it has become covered with trash from products sold by the powerful multi-national Buy N Large corporation, WALL-E, a garbage collecting robot has been left to clean up the mess. Mesmerized with trinkets of Earth's history and show tunes, WALL-E is alone on Earth except for a sprightly pet cockroach. One day, EVE, a sleek (and dangerous) reconnaissance robot, is sent to Earth to find proof that life is once again sustainable. WALL-E falls in love with EVE. WALL-E rescues EVE from a dust storm and shows her a living plant he found amongst the rubble. Consistent with her "directive", EVE takes the plant and automatically enters a deactivated state except for a blinking green beacon. WALL-E, doesn't understand what has happened to his new friend, but, true to his love, he protects her from wind, rain, and lightning, even as she is unresponsive. One day a massive ship comes to reclaim EVE, but WALL-E, ...
The original plan called for a mere five year trip, but the video instructions about the return to Earth show the same level of bone loss as the actual 700 year stay in space. Worse yet, such a short trip doesn't justify sending EVE probes at all, because, as we find out later, some people (including the president) have remained on Earth for these five years (the ship left in 2105 and the last message was sent in 2110). Evidently, the EVE program and the corresponding video were made in case the trip lasts indefinitely, possibly after it became clear that operation "Clean-up" is failing, but before it failed completely (or perhaps even afterward, but they forgot to cancel the previous order of not returning to Earth).

I can't say enough about how good this movie, that you probably haven't read, so I'm going to keep this short.
This is the best thing out there in theater's right now, and might just be the best animated film of all time, whether you believe that or not, is your own opinion, but what Pixar has done here, can put companies like Dreamworks, Sony, and Blue sky to shame.
Wall E also may go down as the most lovable character ever to grace the movie screen, I praise Ben Burtt and Andrew Stanton, and the people at Pixar for what they did, and will continue to do.
This is why Pixar is the top studio in the world.
