Party Central is a fun animated short shown in the cinemas with Muppets Most Wanted and takes place after the events of Monsters University.

Mike and Sulley go to Monsters University to see how their Oozma Kappa fraternity brothers are doing. The answer is not too well as no one has shown up for their first party.

Mike and Sulley liven it up using a borrowed portal door to sneak into the party at the rival fraternities and steal its food and guests to get their party started and then to keep it swinging.

They regularly go through the wardrobe doors of a married couple's bedroom that disturbs them and leads to a hilarious end credit gag.

As with other Pixar shorts the quality of the animation and voice work is very good and kids will find this enjoyable.
