    Dexter and Dee Dee's Dad (seasons 3 and 4)

    Dexter and Dee Dee's Dad (seasons 3 and 4)
    The Dexter's Laboratory equivalent to modern Elvis Cridlington from Fireman Sam.
    Gender: Male
    Type: Incompetent Father
    Species: Human
    Portrayed by: Jeff Bennett
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: Dexter's Laboratory


    Dad is one of the five main characters in Dexter's Laboratory. He is Dexter and Dee Dee's blond-haired father. He is voiced by Jeff Bennett.

    Sadly, he was flanderized in seasons 3 and 4.

    Incompetent Qualities

    1. He went from a bumbling yet loving father to a butt-monkey-type character.
    2. He is much more clueless and dumber than he already was. He was even dumber in episodes like "A Failed Lab Experiment", "A Third Dad Cartoon", “Tee Party” and “Father Knows Least”.
    3. He can be a bully and pull childish pranks on his family for his own enjoyment.
    4. Because the show's animation techniques were changed, his design took a significant step-down. His head is larger and lankier than before, and his bottom half seems to be unfinished.
    5. Almost every episode that has a spotlight on him just represents his aforementioned flanderization.
    6. His jokes are mostly trashy and mean-spirited.
    7. In the episode “Dad Man Walking”, his high-pitched snoring will get on your last nerve.
    8. In the episode "Dexter's Wacky Races", he removed the gas tank in his car by mistake.
    9. In the episode "A Dad Cartoon", he tried to clean his car but ending up breaking it in a freak accident.
    10. Again, in the same episode as shown in IQ#8, he is at his absolute worst, where he somehow accidentally removed the gas tank in his car, which is the stupidest thing he has done and at the same time causing the car to break down.
    11. It's really sad that this terrible new redesign was done by the show's original creator Genndy Tartakovsky.

    Good Qualities

    1. He still loves his family.
      • He occasionally has his old personality.
    2. He was much better in the first two seasons.
      • While he was flanderized in these seasons, he's still a good person.
    3. Dad still does have funny moments here and there.
    4. His motorcycle stunts in "Poppa Wheely" are rather cool.
    5. Jeff Bennett still does a fine, if not perfect, job voicing him.
    6. While his design did take a step-down, it still looks pretty decent.
    7. There are very few times that he is right about Dexter, such as "Copping with Aptitude", where the latter did not learn anything from college, thus forcing him back to grade school because of his absolute worst moment by creating a large hot tub.
