At some point before the first movie, Waternoose encountered Mike and Sulley at the mail room, and, sensing an opportunity, sent the duo to Scare Island as a means of testing one of the new scaring techniques mentioned in the commercial. Randall, by a ContrivedCoincidence, also got accepted on, and tried to get the two kicked off by beating them in the pursuit races. After the duo managed to pass all the tests with flying colours, Waternoose put in a word, and the rest is history.

As an implication of this, Boo will be significantly older by the time Sully comes through the rebuilt door to her room, possibly three or four years older, and has convinced herself that the happenings of the film were simply a dream or a flight of fancy. She says "Kitty," in recognition of Sully, while still being half-asleep, and momentarily will be shocked that it wasn't all a dream.

It explains how Mike and Sully were able to get back to the monster world in time to save Boo. Think about it: At least an hour passes between when Waternoose pushes Mike and Sully through the Banishment Door and when Sully gets back to the factory to save Boo. Even taking into account the size of the fact and the need to transport Boo secretly to avoid the CDA, that's a long time to go before Randall and Waternoose are shown ready to use the scream extractor on Boo. They had the machine up and ready to run when they captured Mike instead of Boo, so what were they doing? Having a victory cognac and cigar? This also helps make sense of why Mike was only a couple of minutes behind Sully. Even though it took him longer to get to the village than Sully, the time Sully spent running through the factory was expanded through time dilation on the human side, so Mike got back just a couple of minutes later in monster time. It also explains how they can send scarers anywhere on earth without having a night shift. If human time and monster time were in sync, then there would be, during the roughly twelve hours a day when no one is scaring a significant portion of human children sleeping who never get scared. But because of the faster time movement in the human world, a single scare shift might encompass a whole day.

Once laughter is shown to generate more energy than screams do, Worthington will become desperate enough to obtain one of those extractors and convert it into a Laughter Extractor.

** Boo/Mary grows into a happy, perky teenager who hates the idea of growing up. Sulley has been acting as her father figure since her dad walked out on the family, and the two are basically inseparable. There could be this backstory about how Mary vanished without a trace and reappeared in the same manner, which practically tore the family apart. Her mother wants her to grow up, which leads to an argument between the two and Boo/Mary running away into the monster world. Then Randall/new villain manages to do something to the doors so Boo/Mary can't return home. Her mother will somehow make it into the monster world and realize that her daughter's imaginary world and friends are true. Oh, and Mary's nickname could be "MG". ~Tiggerific

[[WMG: The scream shortage and the ability to switch to laughter are both caused by things like Seasame Street.]]
Basically the monster universe both makes an internal sense and is half made up of the belief of humans. Since humans thought of monsters of as scary the whole monster universe was essentially made of and powered by fear. As children get stories saying monsters are friendly scream becomes a weaker power source since the universe is now made more of laughter and kids become harder to scare as they think monsters are friendly. New monsters are also more likely to look like Muppets than the older generation further sabotaging scream power.
