Dexter's Laboratory: Ego Trip
Dexter's Laboratory: Ego Trip is an animated film based on the Cartoon Network animated television series Dexter's Laboratory. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera Cartoons for Cartoon Network and originally aired on December 10, 1999. The special follows Dexter, the series' protagonist, as he travels forward through time and meets futuristic versions of himself and his rival Mandark.
Originally intended to conclude the series, the film maintained successful ratings for the channel, despite mixed reviews from critics; it led to Cartoon Network reviving the show for two more seasons in 2001, which began that year and concluded in November 2003.
This is the final installment of Dexter's Laboratory to be animated using traditional cel animation, before switching to digital ink-and-paint beginning with the first episode of season 3, entitled "Streaky Clean", which aired on November 16, 2001.
