One of my top 3 favorites!

Dexter's Laboratory is about as good as it gets. It stars a little boy named Dexter, who is incredibly brilliant and has a secret laboratory attached to his room. Often times his experiments are interrupted by his sister Dee Dee, who will come in his lab whenever she feels like it. Often times Dexter will use his intelligence to stop dilemmas (which at times he or Dee Dee may be at fault for.) Despite Dexter's intelligence, the creators of the show remember Dexter is just a kid, and have given him many traits found in an everyday kid. For example, Dexter isn't too fond of vegetables, he's afraid of being grounded, and doesn't get along with his sister well. The writers also added some drama to the show, as well as some everday situations a kid must go through. Dexter isn't the coolest kid at school, and at times he feels very alone. I'm sure we can all relate to this. At times Dexter's Lab can illustrate childhood as well as Nickelodeon's Hey Arnold! can. I recommend everyone give this show a try. Oh by the way, did I mention all of the spoofs this show has?
