The Trailer Folk[1] are minor characters in Monsters, Inc..

Monsters, Inc.

Trailer Son: "Mama! Another gator got in the house!"
Trailer Mom: "Another gator?! Gimme that shovel! Come here!"
Trailer Son: (as his mother repeatedly whacks Randall with the shovel) "Get him, Mama! Get that gator!"
Randall: "Aaaahh!"
—Trailer son and mom, after Randall enters their trailer home

"When Randall is exiled to this ramshackle mobile home in Louisiana, he quickly turns into trailer trash! The inhabitants aren't scared of large reptiles—they live by an alligator-infested swamp—and Randall soon gets a good hiding courtesy of the trailer mom and a shovel. To add to his misery, there's no way back. Mike and Sulley have destroyed the door to Monstropolis."[1]

Their only appearance in the movie is after Mike has Sulley throw Randall through the door to banish him to the human world.

Only their shadows are seen through the trailer window as the son calls to his mother that another "gator" got in the house. The mother then tells her son to give her a shovel, which she then uses to beat up Randall as her son cheers her on.


  • The trailer makes a debut cameo in A Bug's Life in the background when Flik goes to Bug City. However, no residents make an appearance.
  • A Pizza Planet delivery truck can be seen to the left of the trailer, just like in A Bug's Life.
  • According to the commentary, the "boy" is actually the model of the simulation kid wearing a cap and the "mom" is a bigger version of said model with a "bun" placed on the head.
