Real or Hoax: Monsters, Inc. Drawing on the Wall

A screen capture from the final scene of Monsters Inc. shows what appears to be a child's drawing of two people engaged in a sex act. Is this real or fake?

It’s a hoax.

The claim
The photo allegedly shows the final moment of this 2001 Disney-Pixar film – when Sully opens the door to Boo’s bedroom and smiles at an off-camera scene. We see on the girl’s wall a picture of “Uncle Roger” and “Mommy” engaged in a sex act.

In reality, while there is a child’s drawing on the wall, there are actually benign images such as a cat and bug.

Below is the image being circulated along with a screen shot which shows the actual drawing found on the wall at the end of the movie.

If you still aren’t convinced, watch the final moment of the film in the video below, where you can clearly see that the alleged drawing does not exist.

Bottom Line
The drawing on the wall at the end of Monsters Inc. did not depict anything sexual, but instead had images such as a cat and an insect.

    Honestly, who on Earth would try to get Disney-Pixar in trouble for something they didn’t do? That is just downright silly and stupid!

    • Jay

      Well, it’s not like it’s entirely baseless, taking a look at the actual cases. These include a topless photograph of a woman The Rescuers, penis-shaped column in the cover art of Little Mermaid and the famous scene in The Lion King where you can see stars form the word “SEX”.

      Hoax or not, this is far from baseless, as I said.

    Well I hate to bust your perfect uncorrupted childhood bubble but you obviously must of never taken a good look at the the cover of a Little Mermaid VHS tape and spotted the penis tower on the golden castle behind Ariel. Screw Disney and Pixar.

      That is a good point, but it’s unrelated to the Monsters Inc drawing discussed here.

      I read an interview with the artist that did that VHS cover. In short, he was severly sleep deprived and was essentially copying art from an older Little Mermaid poster. In his sleepy, sloppy haste, he copied an already semi-phallic tower into something terrifying. Disney eventually created new art, and from what I understand, it’s rare to find a copy of the super-phallic VHS cover.

        Little did he know that his sleepy, sloppy haste would make him infamous!

        • Matthew

          Well, that how it goes.
          One little mistake can make you infamous!
          By the way, another thing that Disney got into trouble for was a ‘naked’ lady seen in ‘The Rescuers’.

      Check out your facts before you believe such stupidity. The phallus on The Little Mermaid cover was an accident.

  • E. L. Knight

    I have that VHS cover with the phallic tower on the Little Mermaid VHS.

    Though, I heard the story was the guy designing the cover was fired and still owed them the cover so he had to finish it before dismissed and he did that as an act of protest and defiance to his being fired.

    People really need to stop creating these fakes because all it is doing is causing needless fear and panic among people who are gullible enough to believe the stuff in FB…

    I hope PIXAR sues the crap out of whoever created the fake… Monster’s Inc. is a Great movie and this kind of crap does NOT need to be started when it is clearly NOT real!

    As a film historian Disney has put subliminal messages of sex throughout their films. Turn up Aladdin when the tiger comes after him on the balcony. He says “good teenagers take off your cloths”

  • Josh

    hey geniuses… this is a photoplasty entry, and you should probably pay them for your cropped copy of their image.

  • Juss

    Bob, you must not be much of a film historian if you actually think that the whole “teenagers” thing is actually in Aladdin. I can pretty much guarantee that if you did not know what to listen for you would have never heard that particular phrase.
