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, ...

EVE is shown as one of many bots to be sent to one of a multitude of possible life sustaining planets. When EVE returns to the Axiom and presents the plant, the ship automatically assumes it is from Earth. If the ship was programmed to return to Earth upon receiving a plant of any origin, sending multiple EVE bots would serve no purpose. However, when the captain analyzes the dirt WALL-E left on him, the computer describes the dirt as "Earth"; the Holo-Detector most likely is able to similarly analyze the dirt the plant is growing in. Also, nothing in the film actually states or shows that the EVE probes are investigating any planets other than Earth; it's more probable that multiple probes are instead being dispatched to a variety of locations on Earth. If you're looking for evidence that plants are again growing on Earth, it doesn't make much sense to send a single probe to investigate the entire planet. It makes even less sense to look for active vegetation on Earth by sending probes to places that are not Earth. EVE units are probably delivered to various locales on Earth periodically to check for plant life. The speed with which the shuttle returns to pick up EVE after she signals it suggests that it didn't go very far away, and it costs a lot of energy for a rocket to "turn around" on a moment's notice when it's heading away, so it's unlikely that it was en route to another star system; it was probably in a holding orbit around Earth, Luna, or Sol, from which it could easily return without excessive energy expenditure, waiting for either the next scheduled probe drop or a signal from a probe indicating that it found something.

Just got back from a special sneak peek/advance screening of this movie, and I must say, Pixar continues to amaze. They just can't seem to make a bad move. Heck, they can't even make a mediocre movie. Now, I will admit, there have been a couple that I would classify as my "least favorite" of theirs, but even they were actually very, very good. This one, though...it just may take the cake. Ranks up there with the absolute best they have produced. Hysterical, emotional, meaningful -- this movie succeeds on every front! I am not going to get into spoilers or specific plot aspects, but I will say that I am almost definitely going to see this one again in the theater..and it will be worth every dime. Come Friday, be in line to see Wall-E. You don't want to miss it!
