Monsters Inc. Yeti

Monsters University is out today.   It's a prequel to Monsters, Inc.

It takes place at a time before the Abominable Snowman was exiled out of the monster world.

One can assume Mike & Sulley would be college buddies with him.

This is also a great opportunity to explain why Yeti was banished to the Himalayas - a big mystery in the original film.  What crazy college prank got him expelled? 

Also, John Ratzenberger always does a voice for each Pixar movie; so one would naturally assume he would return to voice his Abominable Snowman character.
Surely, one can expect the Abominable Snowman to appear in Monsters University.

Right?

NO.

The Abominable Snowman is not in this movie.  John Ratzenberger is voicing some other character.

Bummer.

Here's hoping they are planning a separate short with the Abominable Snowman as the star, which explains his banishment.

In the meantime, here are two products one can get with the Monsters Inc. Yeti:

 Threadless has this tee:





And there's a new plush doll that's pretty great:






I got one of these. It's HUGE.  Also: cuddly.
