The cartoon that had it all...
13 May 1999 | by (Hastings, Nebraska) – See all my reviews

Dexter's Lab is a great cartoon of a boy and his lab and the many spoofs and pitfalls that come onto him. It's best watch when you are a bit old. The spoofs and plotlines made this show a smash. Spoofs include: Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Charlie's Angels (G.I.R.L. Squad!) and heck even Anime (Voltron). A great show for a generation.
