Storyline

After Dexter is confronted with robots who wish to "destroy the one who saved the future," he uses his time machine to see how he saved it. They declare that they are here to destroy the one who saved the future, and make ready to attack Dexter. Dexter easily destroys them with the use of various tools and gadgets from his lab. However, news that he is "The One Who Saved the Future" intrigues him, and he decides to travel through time to discover how cool he is. In the first time period he visits, Dexter finds a tall, skinny, weak version of himself working in office-designing cubicles, with Mandark as his rich, successful boss. The child Dexter unwittingly reveals the existence of blueprints regarding the "Neurotomic Protocore", and Mandark steals it after the two Dexters move forward in time.

Trivia

This movie was supposed to be the series finale of the show, as 'Genndy Tartakovski' (creator) left after making the movie to create Samurai Jack. However, due to the show's high popularity at the time, storyboard artist Chris Savino decided to renew the series, which premiered in 2000 and lasted until 2003. See more »

Goofs

It is extremely odd that Action Dexter doesn't remember that the lab is still intact, considering that, from his viewpoint, he's already lived through the events of the day in question twice: once as Boy Dexter and once as Wimpy Dexter. See more »

A must-see for all fans!
20 March 2002 | by (Lancaster, PA) – See all my reviews

I personally enjoy Dexter's Lab, and watch it whenever I can. When "Ego Trip" was first put on TV in 1999, my brother and I made sure we had a blank tape to record it on. It goes along with the typical "Dexter" style, including animation, which naturally isn't entirely the best. Even so, I found the movie very funny and enjoyable, with a good ending - following the typical style of Dexter's Lab where it kind of leaves you a bit hanging at the end. I recommend this to all people who enjoy the show "Dexter's Lab."
