    Notes (10)

    • Mandark is now more of a "villain" to Dexter rather than a "rival".

    • Christine Cavanaugh, the voice of Dexter, won an Annie Award in 2000 for this TV movie.

    • This TV movie features the old 1980s Hanna-Barbera "Swirling Star" logo at the end, which was also used on The Powerpuff Girls, complete with a newer Time Warner byline on the logo.

    • Dexter's parents only have a short appearance at the beginning playing Twister.

    • This is the last episode to use older animation.

    Trivia (3)

    • After the Dexters had narrowly reached Mandark's castle and the three other Mandarks had arrived, all the Dexters charge in to fight holding their wrenches. But when we see the next clip of the youngest Dexter, he no longer is holding his wrench.

    • When the Mandarks are running after the Dexters to stop them from reversing the core to positive, the Mandark with only his brain left is moving alone. Nobody is carrying him.

    • When Dexter is trying to escape his future home in the time when Mandark has gone corporate, as Dexter slides down the banister you can clearly see the closet has no door at all, but when dexter reaches the closet, it has a door, and it is closed.
