Dying to show the six-year-old in your life Animal House, but afraid that the toga-partying exploits of John Blutarsky might be too debaucherous for their young mind? Now there’s a solution: Monsters University.

Based on the first full-length trailer for the Monsters Inc. prequel, Pixar has found a way to tap their love for raunchy college comedies by following the origins of everyone’s favorite hard-working, middle-class monsters, Mike and Sully. Billy Crystal and John Goodman once again voice the BFF pair, but as we learn in the early glimpse of the movie, their road to friendship was a bit… scary. If Mike is Larry Kroger, than Sully is his Blutarsky. An intellectual in need of a bit of fun, a party animal in need of direction. Now, which monster is filling in for Otis Day?

Monsters University arrives June 21, 2013. Check out the first trailer below. Can it live up to the original?
