Dial M for Monkey is a series of animated segments as part of Dexter's Laboratory, produced by Hanna-Barbera Cartoons for Cartoon Network. It ran from 1996 to 1997, airing 7 episodes. The segments were replaced with The Justice Friends and then Dexter's Laboratory's own segments.
Dexter's laboratory pet monkey named Monkey is more than just an ordinary monkey, but secretly the famous superhero Monkey! Whenever the world is in danger, he is telepathically called upon by love interest Agent Honeydew, a human agent of the spy agency, Global Security.
One episode, "Barbequor," was banned after only airing once due to gay stereotypes. In reruns and on DVD, it is replaced with "Dexter's Lab: A Story" from the main series.
The music and theme song was composed by Gary Lionelli.
