Meanwhile, because Dexter hides his genius intellect from his parents, the boy is discreet (or at least, he tries to be). This is easier said than done when a multi-million dollar bill from NASA shows up, or when someone's memory needs erasing. Dexter's Laboratory aired on Cartoon Network with new episodes from the mid 1990s through 2003.
Warner Home Video will release the first thirteen episodes of Dexter's Laboratory onto DVD beginning October 12th ($24.98).
The animated series relies largely on Dexter's imaginative uses and finagling of science, devising, in one way or another, how to get the better of anyone else in the world who doesn't happen to be a genius. Dexter will build a robotic exoskeleton to win at dodgeball, invent his own superhero action figure to get into a neighborhood club, give his mother crime fighting superpowers, and contrive plot after plot to keep his technology safe.... if not from his meddling sister Dee Dee, then from his neighbor and forever-fiend, a bulbous-headed boy named Mandark.
The animated series Dexter's Laboratory benefits from the clever injection of impractical sci-fi into the everyday life of a kid with little else to do than to tinker with technology. The CN original was the creation of animation director Genndy Tartakovsky (Sym-Bionic Titan).
