    Boo From "Monsters Inc." Is Named After A Real Person And I Found Her

    Her name is what and she's named after who?

    Who could forget the timeless Disney/Pixar classic, Monster's Inc.?


    I'll tell you who couldn't: me. And even though it came out 17 years ago in the ancient times of 2001, it still holds up!


    Well I recently came across some information that shook me to my very core — information I wasn't prepared for. Information that made me spew milk all over the computer my job lets me use.


    Seriously, you might want to sit down for this.

    Remember Boo? She's the two-year-old who basically sets the whole story in motion by escaping from her bedroom into the city of Monstropolis — or more specifically, the Monsters Inc. factory.

    Her real name is...




    But that's not all, folks!

    Mary Gibbs isn't some randomly selected name. It's also... THE NAME OF HER VOICE ACTOR.

    HERE SHE IS NOW. Her Instagram account, yoga_boo, is pretty active and, believe it or not, she loves fitness and yoga.

    Anyway, enjoy the rest of your day.
