Get the Dexter's Laboratory mug.
A show on Cartoon Network that focuses on a boy-genius shortie named Dexter. He is usually seen in the show in his lab doing random experiments, while his ditzy ballerina of a sister Dee-Dee messes everything up, thus causing Dexter's temper to go up and kicking her out.

Dexter's hot Mom and smart-ass Dad know NOTHING about what their son is up to. Nothing at all. Dexter also has to face his worst enemy Mandark almost every-day. Mandark, however, is in love with Dee-Dee.

Oh yeah, speaking of Mandark, his parents are hippies. They don't understand his craving for evil and to make Dee-Dee his girlfriend. They want him growing up to be nice and have peace like they do.
Has anyone ever noticed that Dexter's Mom has such a huge butt?

Has anyone ever noticed that Mandark loves Dee-Dee for no reason?

Has anyone ever noticed how Mandark's mother and father never understand him?

Why is Dee-Dee so ditzy anyway? All she does is annoy Dexter to bits!

But otherwise, Dexter's Laboratory is the bomb! Woo-hoo!

The first actually original program on Cartoon Network, focused on a boy genius with an inexplicable accent of unknown origin who built a top secret laboratory hidden behind a bookcase in his bedroom. Episodes typically featured his inventions getting destroyed by his ditzy ballerina of a sister, Dee-Dee, alongside the occasional confrontation from resident antagonist, Mandark. The first season also had short superhero-themed segments that were quickly given the boot.
I remember the days of Dexter's Laboratory, where not every cartoon needed to have an over-arching story; all you needed were explosions and monkeys!

A 1990's - Early 2000's cartoon where a precious boy genius gets his huge lab destroyed by his older, autistic sister. If you see the boy genius, don't forget to pat him and protect him because he's a babie bean.
"I love you, Dexy," I simp Dexter's Laboratory.
