Quotes

Dexter: Dee Dee, how long have known each other? Our whole lives, you say? No, in truth? Never? Or should I say, you never knew me? Because if you did, you would know I am a soul who requires peace, quiet and, most importantly, solitude. But every day, that solitude is inevitably broken by *you*.

Very funny cartoon!
23 April 2004 | by SonicStuartSee all my reviews

Dexter's Laboratory is one of the funniest cartoons on the Cartoon Network. Everyday Dexter is always working in his laboratory and he every time when he is working, his sister DeeDee (who is a funny character who is sort of an airhead), bugs him and starts wrecking mostly everything and then Dexter always says this very memorable quote,"DeeDee, GET OUT OF MY LABORATORY!" and then DeeDee is so always asking what this button do? Then Dexter is like, "NO DeeDee, don't push that button! You don't even know what it does!" and then something goes wrong. Another thing I think is hilarious on Dexter's Laboratory is The Justice Friends segments those are so funny! With Major Glory spoofing Captain America, Valhallan spoofing The Silver Surfer and The Inbragable Krunk spoofing The Incredible Hulk of course! I like the introduction to the Justice Friends where the announcer says: Three of Earth's most mightiest heroes, all in one roof to face the challenge of everyday life and then they introduce the characters and so on. I also think it is funny about Dexter's Lab is that Dexter rival Mandark has this huge crush on DeeDee! I also liked Dexter's really cool inventions and I was wishing I had some cool stuff like that but I am pretty sure everyone does. Overall funny and memorable.
