Remember when Mike Wazowski and the Oozma Kappa crew break into Monsters, Inc. to get a little inspiration for the scare games? Well, we couldn’t stop thinking about the scare cards that Mike and Sulley chat about after watching the movie on again on Blu-ray.
Mike: You collected Scare Cards, huh?
Sulley: Yup, 450 of ’em!
Mike: Impressive…I have 6,000 still in mint condition, but you know, 450’s pretty good too.
Once we saw the end credits (with all of the scare cards flying around), we wanted to pull together a list of the Scare Cards from a few different sources. So, which ones do you have? Which ones do you need? And will they ever be produced more broadly? Read on for more details.
Disney Parks Scare Cards
The first set of cards was given to attendees of the Monstrous Summer 24-hour event held on May 24-25 at Disney World, Disneyland, and Disney California Adventure. The cards that were released at the Disney parks are what we are calling the “official” cards.
They were given in packs of 6 (1 top card which was the same in all packs, and 5 random Scare Cards) and the total set of cards includes 30 cards (29 numbered cards and one un-numbered top card). If you add in the Disney Store Scare Cards listed below this section there are a total of 36 cards (34 numbered cards and two un-numbers top cards)…see below.

Disney Store Scare Cards
Thanks to our reader Randy, we have learned that the Disney Store was passing out packs of six cards over the 2013 Halloween holiday to promote the release of the Blu-ray. The packs all contain the same six cards (five character cards with one top card). Thanks as well to Randy for the photos!

Projectionist Scare Cards
This set of Scare Cards was only released to projectionists at movie theaters as a promotion for the film and was offered as a set of 10 cards (9 Scare Cards and 1 Top Card). (The promotional cards also came with a Monsters U hat as well that said “Perfect Projection” on the back.) The card images below are the same images that appear in the movie end credits – the difference is that the banner in the upper right-hand corner of the cards of these cards doesn’t say what scare company they work for, but instead it lists the June 21 release date for Monsters U.
Potential Future Release Scare Cards
There are three additional Scare Cards that you can find digital images of (not printed cards) if you have the Monsters, Inc. Storybook Deluxe and (yes, and) the Monsters University Storybook Deluxe iOS apps. (UPDATED: The apps are unfortunately no longer available in the Apple App Store).
With these extra card designs already laid out, we have to imagine that there are even more that are already prepared for printing. So, I think it’s only natural to want to see more of these cards produced.
COLORING BOOK CARDS
Additionally, there was a coloring book titled, “Scaring All-Stars” which was released on Amazon and contained card-stock versions of the characters listed below. Unfortunately, none of the cards were newly announced characters, but the two pages of cards (8 perforated cards on each page) are a great way to continue your collection.
- #03 Frank McCay
- #04 Earl Thompson (Rookie Card)
- #08 Betty Stevenson
- #13 Darryl Payne
- #19 Carla Benitez
- #21 Carl Johnson
- #22 Jerry Jablonski

- #26 Rufus Remerez
- #41 Carol Dallmar
- #50 James P. Sullivan

Will The Scare Cards Be Released Broadly?
As fans of the Scare Cards have turned to eBay to try and complete their sets, Twitter user laughograms asked Monsters University director Dan Scanlon (on June 23, 2013) if the Scare Cards would be released in stores. Dan responded with…” be patient”.
Now, it has obviously been a while since the movie hit theaters, but with the Monsters U Blu Ray being released (in North America), we couldn’t help but wonder if they would be released soon — or before the holidays? We’ll be sure to keep everyone up to date if we hear any updates.
Update (March 2014) – It appears most likely that the scare cards will not be released broadly at this point – this is a bummer since the design of these is so fantastic. If any news does pop up we’ll be sure to update the post.
