The lead characters of the movie Monsters, Inc. were illegally copied from characters drawn by cartoonist Stanley Miller in the early 1960's, according to a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Disney Enterprises, Inc. and Pixar Animation Studios, Inc., the producers of the movie. ... Disney and Pixar allegedly came into contact with Miller's work in 1997, when they reviewed a treatment for an animated movie Miller had proposed.
