Dexter's Laboratory (commonly abbreviated as Dexter's Lab) is an American animated television series created by Genndy Tartakovsky and produced by Cartoon Network Studios (also co-produced with Hanna-Barbera from 1996–2001). The show is about a boy named Dexter who has an enormous secret laboratory filled with an endless collection of his inventions. The series premiered in the United States on Cartoon Network on April 27, 1996.
The series initially debuted on the What A Cartoon! show as a cartoon short and later became the first of said program to be adapted into its own series. Each 22-minute episode consists of two to three segments (with the exception of the initial series finale). Dexter's Laboratory originally ended in 1998 after 52 episodes, but it was later revived for a TV movie, and, even later, a second line of episodes under a different production team.
Dexter's Laboratory is notable for helping launch the careers of several cartoon creators such as Craig McCracken, Seth MacFarlane, Butch Hartman, Bob Boyle, Scott Fellows, and Rob Renzetti.
Beginning on January 16, 2006, Cartoon Network's sister channel Boomerang started airing the series in syndication. As of March 30, 2012, the series has returned to Cartoon Network in reruns on the revived block, Cartoon Planet.
In Canada, the series originally aired on YTV. As of May 5, 2012, Dexter's Laboratory had moved to Teletoon, airing Saturdays at 12:30PM ET, in favor of the launch of Cartoon Network Canada.
