Adult Swim Opens Dexter’s Laboratory Up One More Time

Almost 10 years after the final episode of Dexter’s Laboratory aired on Cartoon Network, the channel has finally released a much-rumored lost episode. This lost episode, called “Dexter’s Rude Removal”, was originally created to show during Cartoon Network parties and has only rarely been seen at a small handful of animation conventions. Why the secrecy around one episode of a cartoon series? Cartoon Network refused to air the episode due to coarse language and situations.

Gendy Tartakovsky, the creator of Dexter’s Laboratory (along with creating Samurai Jack; being the supervising producer, director, and a writer of The Powerpuff Girls; and the director and writer of Hotel Transylvania), had other ideas. During an IAmA appearance on Reddit back in October 2012, Tartakovsky directly answered a question of whether or not he’d make the episode available.

Next time I do a public appearance I’ll bring it with me!

It looks like you won’t have to seek out a convention appearance by Tartakovsky though, because he’s worked out a deal with Adult Swim to release the episode online. So, without further ado, here’s the episode’s description and the episode itself. Enjoy.

He also wrote a monthly restaurant review column for The A.V. Club Austin from 2010 to 2011, and he regularly performs in and directs improv theater. That means he's ready for anything. Yes, even that.
