Monsters generate their city's power by scaring children, but they are terribly afraid themselves of being contaminated by children, so when one enters Monstropolis, top scarer Sulley finds his world disrupted.
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 Bedridge, Professor Parker Wilson finds an abandoned dog at the train station and takes it home with the intention of returning the animal to its owner. He finds that the dog is an Akita and names it Hachiko. However, nobody claims the dog so his family decides to keep Hachi. Written by

The baseball game that Parker watches with Hachi is Game 6 of the 1996 World Series, which the New York Yankees beat the Atlanta Braves 3-2 to win their 22nd World Series championship. See more »
When Hachiko has moved in with Andy, Michael and Ronnie (still a baby), he is shown laying on the floor, while Ronnie collides with the dog repeatedly in his baby walker. In the first shot showing the walker from the side, the baby is absent from his walker. Cut to a master shot showing baby Ronnie in the walker, followed by another shot of the walker colliding with Hachi, similar to the first which shows now the baby's legs. See more »
So even if Columbus got lost and wasn't the first to discover America, he's still my hero. He was really brave to sail in such a tiny ship over a really big ocean. And because of him, we get Columbus Day off of school.
Thank you Heather. Uh, Ronnie? Tell us about your hero.

Hachiko was my grandfather Wilson's dog. Everyone called Hachi a mystery dog because they never really knew where he came from. Maybe Hachi escaped from a dog pound. Or maybe he...

Finally a film from the USA (albeit based on a true story in the 1920s Japan) that is without guns, explosions and free of violence and not based at all on romantic elements!
"Love and Loyalty" succinctly sums up the film. The love so simple, so pure and the loyalty so unfailing, so steadfast that it would melt any steel heart. I was so embarrassed that as soon as the film came to the end I dashed straight into the loo only to see my eyes sore red (!!)
The main characters never "take flight" but that matters not at all. It's the simple story of the love between a man and his best friend that more than sufficiently works all the wonders. Not a sad one, but profoundly touching, So touching that even a tough guy like me couldn't possibly hold his tears.
Hachiko, the Akita dog, has set the Yardstick of loyalty under which all loyalty among us human beings are to be measured. Loyalty that is truly monumental. Loyalty that is to be surpassed only by God Himself.
A must-watch film, especially for all dog lovers. Highly recommended for all families and people of all ages.
