I seek meaning in the artworks I sample.  Believe me, I really want to understand this show.  It has a nice visual style, I'll give it that.  But it contains few funny jokes and memorable stories; in fact, some of the episodes just rip off other media (Road Rash and Mock 5 come to mind).  On top of that, the show's atmosphere is just unpleasant to sit through.  I'll be generous and say 98% of the episodes seem tailored specifically to torture Dexter for the purpose of torture.  Mean-spiritedness works best when it happens to those who deserve it.  While I can buy the idea that Dexter can cause some of his own misery, most of the time that clearly isn't the case.  I want to understand, but whoever's to blame for these problems hasn't (haven't) made it easy.

 

Peanuts is considered the uber-definition of optimism and persistence in trying circumstances, even if theirs was blind.  Also, while I'm one of the few who genuinely dislikes Ren & Stimpy (and not JUST the Adult Party episodes), it did take the dynamic of straight-up person and wiseacre and deconstructed it (mostly the straight-up half).  So I guess I can respect them for those things.

 

Now what exactly am I supposed to get out of THIS show?  I mean, for a while I figured it was trying to strike some kind of balance between the simplicity of Peanuts and the uber-absurdity of Ren & Stimpy.  But then, I could make the same case for other 1990s programs like CatDog, Angry Beavers, Rugrats, Darkwing Duck, Aladdin, Quack Pack, Bonkers, Hercules, and 101 Dalmations.  Let's ignore the Monkey and Justice Friends segments, post-Ego Trip episodes (the ones Genndy Tartakovsky mostly had no hand in) and the whole persistence angle for a moment.  What exactly does Dexter's Lab do that wasn't already done by those other series, or anything that came later?  What does Dexter's Lab accomplish that those shows couldn't?  How exactly did it put Cartoon Network on the map?  (And yes, I’m well aware that these examples were made for children.  Okay, whatever.  But target audience is no excuse for insulting viewer intelligence.)
