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, ...
WALL-E characters seems inspired by 'Charlie Chaplin'. Charlie Chaplin always portrayed a poor and good guy, then he meets a girl. Same happens with WALL-E. See more »
For the ship to have survived 700+ years in space, everything would have to be recycled (including the passengers). Dumping huge amounts of trash out in space would eventually deplete the ship of materials needed to maintain operations. This is likely a metaphorical/stylistic decision by the filmmakers, as a reflection of the "Consume and discard" BnL attitude that led to the desolation of Earth in the first place.
We also don't see enough detail of the ejected garbage to tell whether it actually represents the full variety of waste the ship would have produced (for example, there doesn't seem to be any water in the garbage); it's possible that some things are recycled while others are jettisoned. Furthermore, "outer space" isn't as empty as we imagine it to be; many basic elements could theoretically be harvested from the ship's surroundings, and the ship could have capabilities for using that material that we simply don't see.

Too much garbage in your face? There's plenty of space out in space! BnL StarLiners leaving each day. We'll clean up the mess while you're away.

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.
