Nick Schmidt
Character Information


Nicholas "Lanky" Schmidt was a scarer at Monsters, Inc.


Monsters, Inc.

Lanky appears very briefly in Monsters, Inc. He was a good friend of Claws Ward. He was 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." 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 the campus.


Lanky has pink skin, with orange stripes on his legs. He is very tall, and has large hands, long arms and legs, and a small head.




  • Although all the cast from Mike's play appear onstage for the final musical number, Lanky is mysteriously missing.
  • Lanky's surname, Schmidt, could be a possible reference to Andrew Schmidt.


  • "Well, a kid flew over me and blasted a car with its laser vision"
