The middle of summer is the calmest period in the game, cinema, and serial field. Everyone is preparing for the autumn-winter boom, so there are very few new shows in July, and even those are mostly teenage and children’s. However, even among the cartoons, something is interesting, especially if you grew up on the classic TV series and games of the 80-the 90s of the last century.

In the story, Monster University graduate Taylor Taskmon arrives to work at the Monsters Corporation and realizes that the scarecrows are no longer needed here.
