Henry J. Waternoose (a.k.a "Mr. Waternoose" and simply "Waternoose") is the hidden true main antagonist in Disney/Pixar's 2001 film, Monsters, Inc. He is the CEO of the company Monsters, Inc.. He was voiced by the late James Coburn.

Background Edit

Physical Description Edit

Waternoose is a large gray monster, completely bald, with 5 eyes, and walks around on a set of six crab-like legs, he is always seen wearing a black tuxedo jacket over a white shirt, a red vest, and a black bow tie. When he was younger, he had an Afro-style hair and a chinless beard. A producer described him as a "cross between a spider and a crab."

Personality Edit

Although Waternoose is an antagonist in this movie, he has a gentle, fatherly facade and is only driven to villainy out of desperation to keep Monsters, Inc. afloat in the midst of the energy crisis. He becomes more villainous as this drive and desperation strips away his morals and he is determined to not let anything stop what he thinks will be the best way for the company to keep going, never taking into account looking for other energy resources.
