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 is the final installment of Dexter's Laboratory to be produced using traditional cel animation, before switching to digital coloring in 2001, starting with the first episode of Season 3, entitled "Streaky Clean." 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 »

Quotes

[the Mandarks rally to stop the Dexters from getting the Neurotomic Proto-Core]

Hard to follow but some fun
20 August 2003 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

My young son is a big fan of the TV show and I usually get a chuckle out of the goofy family Dexter is forced to deal with, so we grabbed this from the rental shelf to check it out.

The movie is all about Dexter (present and future) and his nemesis, Mandark. There is little of sister DeeDee, and no sign of glove-wearing mom or good old dad. Dexter travels forward in time, then forward still further, then back a little between the first two jumps (I think) in order to meet his future self who he believes "saved the future". He meets and joins up with future versions of himself who are all quite different from present Dexter.

This normally brightly colored cartoon was fairly monochrome in this long feature, and the time jumping was hard to follow a viewer of any age. It lacked the usual characters and laughs of a short episode, but it wasn't meant to be Shrek or anything... (5/10)

BTW - the only part to make me and my son laugh out loud was at the very end when all the Dexter's were saying their farewells... Goodbye Billy! Some more flat out humor and less misery would have been nice.
