Celia Mae is a supporting character of Disney/Pixar's 2001 animated film, Monsters, Inc. She is Mike Wazowski's Gorgon-Cyclops-Medusa-like girlfriend.

Background

Celia is the receptionist at Monsters, Inc., which means she takes calls by monsters and may click buttons for monster voicemail. Celia often calls Mike "Googley Bear" and "Googley Woogley" calls Sulley "Sulley-Wulley", Mike often calls her "Schmoopsie-poo" and Sulley, in return, calls her "Celia-Weelia".

Physical Description

Celia is a slender light magenta monster with short purple hair that resemble snakes. She wears a green slick, sleeveless dress with a scale print design and a blueish green puffy collar. She has a single aquamarine blue eye. Celia has one thing in common with her boyfriend: they both have one eye. Their eyes are also of similar colors.

The snakes that make up her hair have a mind of their own; they make chirping noises when they're happy, rattle and hiss when they're mad, and they express fear when Celia thinks about getting a haircut (to which Mike respectfully objects, thus relieving them).

Personality

Celia is normally a kind sweetheart, especially to her boyfriend Mike. While she may have an explosive temper when angered, she can calm down almost immediately when she is told the truth by Mike.

Appearances

Monsters University

While absent from the film, a picture of Celia is seen along with her phone number in Mike's locker towards the end of the film.

Monsters, Inc.

In the first film, Celia is celebrating her birthday, so Mike invites her to a Japanese restaurant called Harryhausen's (named in honor of legendary stop motion animator Ray Harryhausen), but due to Boo being in the restaurant, the place is decontaminated by the CDA. One device that is made to make a large dome that would get rid of fatal germs, but could harm people without CDA armor, which is why Celia comes back to work the next day with serious injuries. She is initially upset with Mike and complains about how the date was ruined, but when she sees Mike in danger of being captured by Randall for devious purposes (which it was Randall who ruined their date when he let Boo into the monster world, not Mike), and when Mike reassures his love for her, she saves Mike by subduing Randall with a crowd after she feign-announces him breaking the all-time scare record. She is seen again at the end of the film, having fully recovered and made amends with Mike, and tells him that a box full of magazines has just arrived. Both she and Mike are surprised to see that Mike has made the cover of the magazine. She kisses him and her hair tickles his face.

The year before the film takes place, she and Mike are supposed to have won the 7-legged race at the year's company picnic.

She also appears in the company play "Put That Thing Back Where It Came From or So Help Me" that stars her boyfriend, who has also written, directed, and produced the play.

Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor

Celia makes a very minor appearence in the ride. Her voice is heard over the intercom telling the guests when they can enter the laugh floor.

Disney Parks

Celia appears in attractions based on the film such as Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue! at Disney California Adventure and Monsters, Inc. Ride & Go Seek at Tokyo Disneyland.

Trivia

  • Celia's name may be a play on the word "Cecaelia." It might also refer to Scylla, a monster in Greek mythology known for snatching up those who strayed too close to her with mouths attached to tentacle-like limbs (somewhat like Celia's snakes).
  • An early model of Celia showed that she was originally going to have a twin head named Welia.
    • Sulley actually called her Celia Welia near the beginning of the film.
  • According to the book Monsters Inc.: The Essential Guide, the five snakes serving as Celia's "hair" are named Amelia, Bobelia, Ophelia, Cordelia and Madge.
  • Celia makes a cameo at the end of Monsters University in a photo. Her phone number can also be seen.
  • It's implied that Mike may have met Celia sometime after getting a job at Monsters, Inc..
  • Celia having snakes for hair may have been a nod to the Greek mythology legendary figure, Medusa. However, unlike Medusa who is bitter and can turn people into stone, Celia is kind and does not have any abilities.
  • Celia's age, according to the handbook, is likely 24, making her at least three years younger than Mike.
  • The read along version never shows any of the scenes in which Mike wins Celia back. This could fool the reader into thinking that Celia didn't appear again.
