Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hey Monie! originated as one of 14 animated-short components of X-Chromosone, a series on the Oxygen cable network. Proving popular enough to stand on its own, the cartoon series expanded to 30 minutes and moved to the Black Entertainment Network. Its dialogue largely improvised by voice actresses Angela V. Shelton and Frances Callier, the series detailed the daily routine of an African-American publicist named Monie and her outspoken best pal, Yvette. Occasionally the duo became a trio whenever Monie and Yvette's mutual boy friend Chad showed up. The BET version of Hey Monie! debuted in March 2003, rapidly becoming one of that cable channel's most popular commodities.
