THEME:   first word of a phrase is a kind of SHOT
Try {& theme}   GIVE IT A SHOT   
Reading after resetting   OOO [like the way this looks]   
Audio receiver   EAR   
Collection of heir pieces?   ESTATE   
Multi-cell creature?   TOON   
Doc who adminsters a PET scan?   VET [but the unneeded question mark gives it away]   
Pal, slangily   HOMIE  [without any proof, I believe this (and homes) comes from East L.A. and is short for hombre, meaning man.  In Spanish, hombre is pronounced with a long O, as is homes, which can sometimes be homie]   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

The cartoon frames are usually called "cels." I haven't seen them referred to as "cells."

My take on HOMIE: It comes from South-Central L.A., and means home-boy (a local).

Cels is an alternate spelling of cells, so while it's most often cels for cartoons, it doesn't have to be.  That said, I'd have gone with "Slide denizens" or "Barred abodes."

You're probably right about "home-boy": simplest is most often best.  (How did "home-boy" originate?  Might have been "home-man.")
