Nicholas "Lanky" Schmidt is a minor character from the 2001 animated film, Monsters, Inc. and its prequel, Monsters University. He is purple with a small head and long arms and legs. He is voiced by Bob Bergen.


Monsters, Inc.

Lanky is a scarer at the Monsters Inc. company and is tenth of the Scarer's Leaderboard. He first appears as the scarers are walking out to their stations. Later, he is seen being interviewed by a news reporter about the incident at Harryhausen's, where he exaggerates the story by claiming Boo flew over him and blasted a car with "its laser vision." He appears to be a good friend of Pete "Claws" Ward.

Lanky's last scene is in Mike's play "Put That Thing Back Where It Came From Or So Help Me" as a frightened customer at Harryhausen's.

Monsters University

A younger, smaller Lanky appears as a background character in Monsters University. He first appears when Mike Wazowski arrives at campus. His picture can be seen on a Scare Card during the credits. It is also revealed in Monsters University that he graduated from Fear Tech and formerly worked at Fear Co.
