One Of Cartoon Network's Greatest
3 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Looking back on all these old cartoon network shows I use to watch when I was a child sure brings back tons of memories. "Dexter's Laboratory" was a funny and unique cartoon. It centered around Dexter a boy genius who built a laboratory under his house without his parents knowledge, honestly I don't know why he kept it a secret from them but any who, he has an older sister named Dee Dee but she's an Idiot. His parents names are Mom and Dad although that was common for cartoons back then. Dexter has a rival neighbor named Mandark. The episodes had great plots, excellent writing, and were produced by Hanna-Barbara. It also featured a short cartoon between each episode, either Dial M of Monkey or The Justice Friends. I found the show to be pretty interesting, and i enjoyed some of the wacky/fun episodes that the series had to offer. Some of the episodes were kind of painful to watch at times , but most of them were always full of humor and wacky adventures, which made this series good. This show is way better than Jimmy Neutron which seemed like a ripoff, that show is too boring.
