Dexter's Laboratory is an American animated series created by Genndy Tartakovsky for Cartoon Network. It follows Dexter, a boy-genius and inventor with a hidden laboratory in his room, which he keeps secret from his parents. He is in a constant battle with his older sister Dee Dee, who always finds a way to get inside Dexter's lab and inadvertently foil his experiments. Dexter also engages in a bitter rivalry with a fellow boy-genius named Mandark, who is Dexter's neighbor and classmate. Prominently featured in the series' first two seasons are segments featuring superhero-based characters Monkey, Dexter's pet lab-monkey/superhero, and The Justice Friends, a trio of superheroes who share an apartment.
While not as well-loved as the other original Cartoon Network shows, PhantomStrider does consider this decent quality, especially for the first cartoon to air on Cartoon Network. He once reviewed an episode entitled Rude Removal, which was controversial due to the massive amounts of (albeit bleeped) profanity Dexter and Dee Dee's "rude clones" blurt out.
