It's a proven fact that Pixar loves to scatter Easter eggs in their films that reference previous and upcoming features in the Pixar canon. It is also a proven fact that the internet loves creating fan theories that tie together separate fandoms into one singular universe. So what happens when two passions of animation fans around the world meet? You get a theory that suggests that Sully P. Sullivan, top scarer at Monsters Inc., is now a toilet seat cover. Hang on tight kids, your childhood is about to get a little hairy.
Tumblr user Ranting Randall picked up on a reference to Monsters Inc. in the Toy Story short "Partysaurus Rex." Upon first pass, the short is innocuous enough as we see Bonnie getting ready for some bath time hijinx with the Toy Story gang. But if you look around the frame, you'll notice something that's rather disconcerting to fans of the 2001 classic. Take at Randall's original post below, and spot the horror:
Yes, dear readers... the toilet seat cover in Bonnie's bathroom looks like it's made from the fur of our dear friend Sully. Even scarier is the fact that this looks like a rather bleak call back to a line from Monsters Inc.
During the course of events in the film, Sully and Randall are having a conversation about the human world, and in that conversation Randall mentioned the monster world's equivalent of an urban legend. "I heard humans skin monsters and make toilet covers out of their fur," is the exact quote that Ranting Randall quoted from Evil Randall, and of course Sully thinks that this belief is ridiculous. But in the tradition of Mr. Incredible existing as a comic book in Finding Nemo, or Buy N Large providing batteries for Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story 3, this little nugget is bound to be used in future theories that theorize all Pixar films exist in the same universe.
Of course, this could all just be a coincidence, and the Sully themed cover is a bright addition to the already vivid color palette of Bonnie's bathroom. Maybe older Boo in the Toy Story 3 universe colored something with those colors, and her parents happen to be world famous toilet cover designers. Inspiration struck them, and voila – a Sully themed toilet seat cover was born, and it would serve as a reminder to Sully of that little girl that he once shared an adventure with. Either way, if your kids stumble upon this harsh "truth" on the internet, you now have a wonderful cover story to tell your children before they go to bed. Make sure to tell them about the part where he retired and went down to Mexico to meet up with Mike.
