Dexter's Laboratory was one of the few great cartoons of the '90s. While the standard of quality dropped significantly near the end of its run, it was imaginative and clever. Through homages to many classic films and media, Dexter's Laboratory managed to appeal to all audiences. Children and adults alike could appreciate different aspects of the humor, making it extremely watchable. With the apparent decline of quality in television today, it saddens me that Mr. Tartakovsky's work had to be tainted with the program's final seasons, which I refuse to accept as part of the series, similarly to Rugrats; they completely missed the point, and tried to change what did not need to be changed, including the animation.
Dexter's Laboratory is a series that this generation deserves to experience. Much like the title character, this program was genius.
