For these two have come up with a bold plan to "Rescue" Boo. To get this cute little girl back safely to the human world.

Want to hear how Mike & Sulley actually do this? Come back on Friday. When I'll share the rest of the concept art that I've got for "Monsters, Inc. : Mike & Sulley to the Rescue."
