** In "Old Man Dexter," the family is unsympathetic to Dexter who, because of his age, isn't allowed to participate in the family movie night. While Dexter handles it badly (he could have easily invented a hypno-ray), it still sucks when the whole family actively participates in something you just can't be a part of.

Creator/CartoonNetwork's first [[CartoonCartoons original series]] that wasn't based on an [[WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast already existing character]] or an [[WhatACartoonShow anthology series]], ''Dexter's Laboratory'' originated as one of the [[WhatACartoonShow World Premiere Toons]], a series of short cartoons solicited through a contest for nonprofessional animators. (''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' was also brought in through this contest, and Creator/CraigMcCracken and Creator/GenndyTartakovsky collaborated on both shows.)

Added DiffLines:

* ThousandYardStare: The Creepy-Eyed-Girl from "Aye Aye Eyes" is ''always'' shown with this face. In fact, that's the reason why Dexter is so creeped out by her.
