    Dexter's Labatory was a classic cartoon produced for Cartoon Network in the late 90s, and a new series again in the early 2000's, featuring boy genius Dexter whose hobbyist projects were often interfered with by his older sister Deedee.

    During the original run, urban legend had it that there was an episode produced that was too profane to be aired. It was more than likely produced for the production team's own amusement and was never intended to air. Similar things have happened before such as the infamous episode of children's show Rainbow, about "Twangers".
    As it turns out, this episode is very real, as [Adult Swim] have premièred the episode on their YouTube channel.



    The basis of the episode is that Dexter creates a rude removal machine, that extract someone's rudeness leaving them very polite and well mannered. The flipside is that it also produces an incredibly rude and ill-mannered duplicate. Rude Dexter and Deedee are extremely liberal with their profanity, so there's a heck of a lot of *bleeps*

    Funnily enough, another Cartoon Network show, The Powerpuff Girls actually did a similar episode with heavy bleeping called "Curses", where the girls accidentally learn a dirty word when Professor Utonium burns his hand, and deal with a literal potty mouthed monster at the end. This episode actually was aired as normal, though apparently the censored words were not profane at all.

    Being an unaired Dexter's lab episode means it is pretty much assured that I would be watching it. I have seen a few of these "for the crew" type shows in the past and that tempered my "frothing at the mouth" potential a bit.

    The lack of a central joke like some of the better episodes did it a disservice but I did find it amusing. I have to wonder why rudeness removal leaves one with a vaguely BBC accent though.

    Indeed, it did lack a certain quality that would normally be found in the rest of the episodes. They probably felt the shock factor would carry it alone.
    It certainly has a novelty and is a much watch for any Dexter's Lab fan, just for the curiosity of it.

    This is the worst Dexter episode, I get the feeling it not being aired was more due to the quality.

    Still, far better than My Little Pony. :hrth:

    I remember watching Dexter's Laboratory when I was a kid; it was a good show.

    This generation, they don't know. They don't know. Kids these days. Kids these days. This generation, they don't know. They missed out.

    As others seem to be of the opinion that some of our younger members might not have seen/appreciated Dexter's lab here is a quick sample of what you were missing

    You're ridin' that hog

    Ah Martin Mull.

    See if you can find an episode called Critical gas. Sadly I can not find a flash/html5 type video right now.

    User Submitted News does favour gaming news but accepts anything of particular interest as far as I'm aware.

    On that note, the current most active topic on the first page of USN is "University of Toronto to host massive student sex orgy to encourage safe sex"

    Eh, it's not the best episode, that's for sure. Had a couple of chuckles though.

    It was because so many people on twitter (#dextersruderemoval #telljeff) that this episode was uploaded at all, and I can proudly say that I was a very supportive member of that movement.

    A month ago when I first heard about this episode, I remember hearing that while an uncensored tape of Rude Removal does exist, it's since been lost and now even Grendy himself doesn't know where it is. At least it was finally released...

    It's interesting how this was released the same day I finished watching the final episode of Season 4. :creep:

    EDIT: It looks like a lot of people from the #telljeff movement still aren't satisfied. Many of them now want them to upload an un-aired Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode.
