Quotes

Mandark: My name is Mandark and I am Dexter's rival. He and I have been competing in science and other things for years and this race is just one more of those things where we try to beat each other, except I try to win by being sneaky and bad! My plan this time is to sabotage the Mark 5, so it doesn'twork as good as it should, then when Dexter is racing he'll most likely crash up, leaving room for me to win!

What hath TV wrought upon us?
1 November 2003 | by (Shermer, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Perhaps cartoons are futile in two respects. The first being that the level of detail often overwhelms the target audience--think of how the Simpsons remained popular after almost 15 years. The second is that the remaining public ignores them as "childish" despite this semi-sophistication.

Dexter's Lab, at one time the best thing on CTNW, is one of those shows, perhaps the best one since Rocky and Bullwinkle. Even the crude art styles are radically similar. Sadly, it is falling out of the inventive mode and into formula.

Overall, if you taped the earlier episodes...keep them. Animation sophistication might soon become a reality.
