The story is set in Monstropolis, a 1930s retro city inhabited by monsters, and centers around Monsters, Inc., the city's power company. Monsters, Inc. sends its employees to human children's bedrooms to scare the children, through teleportation doors set up on the work floor. The screams of children generate electric power for the city. In addition, the monsters believe that human children themselves are toxic (part of the skill involved in scaring includes avoiding contact with the children). The chairman and chief executive officer of Monsters, Inc. is a crustacean-like monster called Henry J. Waternoose.

The top scarer at Monsters, Inc. is a furry, blue, behemoth-like giant named James P. Sullivan, better known as "Sulley", who is partnered with the short, green, one-eyed Mike Wazowski. The two of them are best friends and roommates. Sulley is a gentle and easy-going creature, while Mike is obsessed with his car and with marrying his girlfriend, the Medusa-like Celia Mae. Sulley's main rival as a scarer is the chameleon-like Randall Boggs, and is second only to Sulley in the scarer ranks.

As Sulley and Mike go to work one day, they discuss Monstropolis's power shortage: children have become desensitized to fear by over-exposure to television, and screams are harder to provoke. Just before they are about to leave after a long yet successful day (the first in months), the slug-like secretary, Roz, asks Mike to hand in his paperwork. Mike had forgotten about it, and leaves it to Sulley to fill up his papers and hand them in, since Mike is in a hurry to leave on a date with Celia for her birthday. As Sulley reaches the work floor to find Mike's papers, he finds a lone door on the work floor after hours, which is a violation of policy.

When Sulley checks to see if someone is using the room, a human child follows him out. Before he can return her to her room, Randall appears and sends the door away. Frightened, Sulley takes the girl to Mike, who is enjoying a romantic dinner with Celia at a sushi restaurant. The girl escapes from Sulley's grip at the restaurant, wreaking havoc amongst the monsters, and triggering the Child Detection Agency troops to take action; Mike and Sulley grab the girl and hurry home, trying to avoid the CDA.

The girl stays overnight at Mike and Sulley's apartment and is soon named "Boo", for her habit of saying "Boo!" to surprise Sulley. The two find that she is not dangerous as they thought, but still plan to return her to her world the next day to avoid trouble from the CDA. They disguise her as a monster and sneak her inside Monsters, Inc., where they lose and regain track of her on two or three accounts. Eventually, Mike is caught by Randall, who offers to return Boo's door to the work floor. When Sulley mistrusts Randall, Mike tests the door himself and is mistaken for Boo by Randall, who places him in a box and takes him to a room hidden in the basement of the scream factory. There, Mike is shown a Scream Extractor, a large, vacuum-based device designed to drain scream energy from children. Sulley and Boo, who have followed Randall, distract him and free Mike from the machine, leaving Randall's assistant in his place.

Sulley decides to inform Waternoose of Randall's evil scheme, but is forced to participate in a scare demo to teach new scare recruits. Boo is frightened by Sulley's roar, and running away, she trips; the hood of her costume reveals that she is the escaped human child. Sulley, in his guilt, looks up at the images of the scare in action, revealing Boo's crying face, understanding now how children really feel when scared.

Mike quickly reports Randall's scheming to Waternoose before he can seize Boo, but it turns out that Waternoose is the mastermind of Randall's scheme; because of the decline in productivity, he fears for the company's future, and sees Randall's machine as the only way of ensuring Monsters Inc's survival. Waternoose betrays Sulley and Mike, and banishes the two into the Himalayas through a one-way teleportation door.

The two stay with the local Abominable Snowman at a cave until the Snowman tells Sulley of a village far below the mountain. After an argument with Mike, Sulley sneaks back to the monsters' world through a closet door in a child's bedroom in the village; after some deep thought, Mike soon follows. The two confront Randall and attempt to rescue Boo from scream extractor. Mike, Sulley, and Boo then lead Randall on a chase through moving teleporation doors, before Randall seems to have the upper hand on Sulley. Boo, furious at Randall, attacks him until Sulley climbs out of danger and he seizes Randall. Then Mike and Sulley throw Randall (whom Boo is no longer afraid of) through a teleportation door that sends him to a remote motorhome in a Louisiana swamp, where he is beaten senseless with a shovel by the family living inside, who mistake him for an alligator. Mike and Sulley destroy the door Randall went through, thus ensuring that he doesn't return.

Upon returning to the scare floor, Mike distracts the CDA while Sulley and Boo run off with Boo's door. Waternoose, however, spots and pursues them. Sulley lures Waternoose onto the company's scare rehearsal stage. At the stage, Sulley angers Waternoose to such an extent that Waternoose blurts out his despicable plans in a rage. But then, the curtain goes up and Mike has the CDA watching the truth come out. Waternoose's statement is caught on tape, and he is taken into custody by the CDA. It is also revealed that the secretary, Roz, is also in fact the leader of the CDA and had been doing undercover work to trap Randall for the agency. She admits without Sulley getting caught in the incident, she had never known the company corruption went as high as Waternoose. Boo is soon sent home and her door is put through a wood chipper, and Sulley says one last goodbye.

During his time with Boo, Sulley has learned that children's laughter is much better than screams at generating power. Using this revolutionary approach, Sulley is made the new chairman and CEO of Monsters, Inc. and the company is redefined. Now the monsters enter through the teleportation doors and make kids laugh; in this way, ample power is created for Monstropolis, thus ending the power shortages in the city. Meanwhile, Mike has secretly reassembled Boo's splintered door, and the only part missing from it is the wood chip that Sulley had salvaged as a memory of Boo. Mike shows this to Sulley, and Sulley puts the wood chip in place and the door becomes functional. Then, Sulley enters through the door to take a peek inside. Boo is heard but not seen, and the movie ends with a surprised and pleased smile on Sulley's face.

At the end, several comical "out-takes" are shown where the movie's characters are portrayed as actors. There is also a low-budget musical put on for the employees based on their lie from earlier in the movie. These are also available on the 'bonus features' section of the DVD.
