Offensive, Disgusting and Painful to Watch
23 January 2013 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Just because this is a "Dexter's Laboratory" episode, do not let it fool you. This is a disgusting, foul-mouthed, offensive disgrace disguised as it and I am shocked that Genndy Tartakovsky had the nerve to even make this thing. It feels like a horrible "Robot Chicken" skit, (don't get me started on THAT show), and "Family Guy" rolled into one. Don't get me started on "that" show, either. I know that this was an in-house project created as a gag for the real "Dexter's Lab," but I'm not giving this piece of garbage any excuses. It is absolutely terrible. Even its title card is revolting to look at. When I first saw the title card while watching it on YouTube, I was beyond outraged. The whole short is a complete, utter mess, with stereotypical, unfunny jokes, and a ridiculous amount of swearing. Thank goodness, it is bleeped out. Leonardo DiCaprio's "Titanic" is more child-friendly than this.

I don't care if "Rude Removal" is a "Dexter" short. In my personal opinion, it should have never been made or brought to television. It should have been thrown into the garbage where it belongs.

Rating: 1/10. (Like "Fritz the Cat," it doesn't deserve a chance).
