At last, the long lost Dexter short is here! In this cartoon, Dexter has become fed up with Dee Dee's rudeness, and has invented a machine that extracts people's rudeness from them. However, due to Dee Dee's usual shenanigans, both her AND Dexter get accidentally tossed into the machine. Their rudeness is extracted and creates two alternate versions of themselves - A good and polite Dexter and Dee Dee, and a bad and rude Dexter and Dee Dee. The rude versions swear, are selfish and are just rude in general. One of the funniest points is when rude Dexter tells polite Dexter "Eh, f!ck off!" Its so sudden and abrupt. They also terrorize their Mom which results in a very funny scene. Based on the animation and art style, it looks as if it were produced near the end of Season 1, or the beginning of Season 2. To sum up, this short was much better than I expected. I highly recommend it to fans of Dexter's Lab and witty animation!
