Children of the '90s, A New, Wholly Inappropriate Dexter's Lab is Now Online

Posted By on Tue, Jan 22, 2013 at 5:00 PM

For those who grew up with cable in the late 1990s, Dexter's Laboratory was one of those great shows that fueled the imagination of creative kids while keeping enough slapstick and silliness to make everyone happy. Plus, the main character was a pint-sized mad scientist before those were cool (I'm looking at you, Stewie Griffin).

But, as with seemingly every show back then, there were episodes that were produced, then shelved, after the network found them inappropriate for the intended audience—even though, somehow, Rocko's Modern Life skirted the lines of good taste on a constant basis.

"Dexter's Rude Removal" is one of those episodes—and thanks to the magic of [adult swim], Cartoon Network's adult-humor brand, the episode is now on Youtube for your enjoyment.

And...it's severely underwhelming.

Honestly, I couldn't make it through the seven minute clip of constant bleeping and characters acting like douchebags.

The bottom line: It's nice seeing a new Dexter's Lab, but it just isn't as charming or entertaining as Dexter's Lab should be.

If, however, that didn't deter you from wanting to see the episode, head below the jump to sate your desires. Enjoy.
