“A physics professor and his assistant are working on liberating negatively-charged hydroxyl ions, when all of a sudden, the assistant says, "Wait, professor, what if the salicylic acids do not accept the hydroxyl ions?" And the professor responds, "That's no hydroxyl ion; that's my wife!"”

Dexter's Laboratory is a '90s cartoon that ran on Cartoon Network.
Tartakovsky pitched the series to help guide America through a nightmarish decade of neon colors, X-TREME, and Disney cutesiness. The series was meant to in 1999, with the TV movie Ego Trip, but it was revived for two more seasons with a new production team headed by Chris Savino. These newer episodes contained vomitous background art, characters being changed for no reason, and very little comedy.
Dexter's Laboratory became one of Cartoon Network's most popular and successful original series, back when they were still good. During its run, the series won three Annie Awards, with nominations for four Primetime Emmy Awards, four Golden Reel Awards, and nine additional Annie Awards. The series is notable for helping launch the careers of several cartoonists, such as That Guy Who Sings Broadway and Won't Stop Referencing the '80s. Spin-off media include comic books, DVD and VHS releases, music albums, collectible toys, and video games.
Dexter is a boy genius who has a secret laboratory hidden in his house. His parents are common folk, too oblivious to notice such a genius as him, while his younger (despite being taller than him...) sister Dee Dee is just annoying. In his lab, Dexter builds top-secret nuclear and chemical weapons for several para-military organizations, so he can take over the world. Due to Dee Dee's clumsiness, his schemes almost always fail.
When he's not inventing things, Dexter tries to make it big in the hip-hop industry. He has released many albums, including The Musical Time Machine and The Hip-Hop Experiment, which have sold 40 copies in total. At the end of many episodes, his parents get upset with his "hippity hoppity" business and send him to bed without supper.
Nothing ever goes right for poor Dexter, but despite this, his love for science remains undeterred. In fact, here's a quote about how much he loves science:
|I have understood my love for science can be compared with nothing as common and humane as what you wear mortals call love. What you call love is for me only an appetizer to the great three course feast that is my life dedicated to the science of understanding. For it is understanding not science itself that made me understand that I understand the science of understanding more than I understand the science of not understanding. And thus I understand. I understand and that is why I can compare my understanding with the meal, the source of life and energy for all creatures, those understanding and not understanding alike in their understanding of the need for understanding. Do you understand?|
There isn't much else to see if you did not understand this...I am sorry for you
“You know what kind of train this is? It's a magic train AH-HA-HA! AH-HA-HA! HA-HA !”
That really smelly cartoon featuring the 11-year-old flaming headed kid who wears a T-shirt with a radioactivity sign lives in Lincolnshire, IL. He has a talking dog who smells really bad and genius twin sisters who are nerds, anyways. His show is a modern update from Dexter's lab, and Johnny and the kids are wearing dispoable underpants (or they're in their diapers, according to Canada and Germany). This cartoon has become popular during 2009, the year of Illinois' best-known landmarks being renovated, including the Test house.
