One of the Very Best
6 April 2004 | by (Alexandria, Virginia) – See all my reviews

A truly great cartoon. Don't look here for great art, its classic, simple lines and bright colors are perfect for the cartoon medium. The stories are varied enough to keep one's attention and the plots are character, not "gag" driven so they bear repeated watching. The writing is hilarious and insightful and the foibles of the main characters are those any adult could identify with. If you have any perspective on the art of cartooning, or even a sense of humor, you'll LOVE Dexter's Laboratory. Along with the Powerpuf Girls, Rocko's Modern Life, Real Monsters, Doug, Wild Thornberries, As Told By Ginger, and even Ren and Stimpy, it is a modern classic. Dexter's Laboratory is a MUST WATCH.
