    Dexter's Laboratory

    Follow
    Cartoon Network (ended 2003)
    Dexter's Laboratory is the story of a young boy prodigy. Born with an extraordinary mind, Dexter has built his very own extremely high-tech and expansive laboratory in his room that NASA could only dream of. But Dexter has to keep his lab a secret for fear others will exploit it. Through out the years, Dexter has had to hide his lab from his parents and others but it is no easy task. All Dexter wants is to spend all the time he can inventing new things in his lab, but between his stupid and annoying older sister Dee Dee constantly barging into his lab and tearing up the place and his arch enemy and rival genius Mandark constantly tiring to take over his lab, Dexter's life is anything but easy. Dexter's Laboratory was originally premiered on Cartoon Network as part of the inaugural, Space Ghost hosted, "World Premiere Toons" before becoming a feature with two full shorts on the regular series, a.k.a. the What a Cartoon Show, it eventually became a series itself. Characters: Dexter - Dexter is the big guy here to spite his short size. Dexter's IQ is enough to rival his role model, Albert Einstein. Dexter is an impressionable little boy who loves action. He is always looking for a fight in his giant Robo-Dexter or against his rival, Mandark and when he isn't doing that or working in his lab, he is playing with his action figures or watching TV. You would be hard pressed to see Dexter outside unless he is doing some sort of experiment or fighting some sort of evil. But other than all that, Dexter spends all his time in his lab. Dexter is constantly working on something new and building on to the lab. So much in fact that he has some inventions he can't even remember making and there are parts of the lab he doesn't know anything about. Naturally, Dexter is the head of his class much to the dismay of his fellow students. Dexter is pretty much devoid of friends but he isn't really bothered by it. As long as he can work in his lab, Dexter lives on. Dee Dee - Dexter's older sister is a very happy and delightful girl. Being taller and older than Dexter gives her a sisterly edge. Dee Dee is one of the few who knows about Dexter's lab as she stumbled upon in when the both were younger. But Dexter does not need to worry about her spilling the secret as no one would believe her even if she did. Dee Dee lives in her own little world complete with unicorns, imaginary dragons, and talking ponies. Her room is a pink nightmare of stuffed animals and dolls that Dexter must avoid at all costs. So naturally, no one really takes her seriously. She is a dancer and a singer but insists on practicing in the lab and wreaking the place in the process. She also has some athletic skill in most sports. But behind it all, Dee Dee is actually a very caring sister who does truly love her little brother. Mom - Mom is a happy home maker who can't stand filth in any form. You will be hard pressed not to find her wearing her yellow gloves. She, like Dexter, wears them everywhere. Mom always has dinner on the table by the time Dad gets home and is always willing for a bit of "playing around" with her husband at anytime. She gets the kids on the bus in the morning and off in the evening. Just your standard work at home Mom who sits on the brink of insanity at times. Dexter seems to take after her with her hard work ethic and inability to stop once she starts. She works in the kitchen much like Dexter works in the lab and hates it when Dad drops in to bother her. Dad - Dad is the typical working man. He leaves in the morning for work and comes home in the evening for dinner. He loves sports and working with his tools. He is a handy man and handles most of the hard work around the house. He likes to mess around with his family, especially Dexter. He enjoys annoying his wife in the kitchen and giving her a playful little pinch in the butt. His constant attempts to get Dexter out of his room and into a uniform of some sort usually are forfeit. He is an outdoors man as well. He loves to fish and camp. Dad is a very laid-back guy. Dee Dee seems to take after Dad with his sports skill, his love of the outside, and his thrive at being annoying. Mandark - Mandark is Dexter's rival and he is totally evil. Mandark is on the same intellectual level as Dexter and has proved it many times. He also has his own lab in his room though it doesn't seem to be a secret as Dexter's. Mandark's lab is bigger and better than Dexter's and he never misses a chance to reminded Dexter of that fact. Mandark's #1 ambition is to shut down Dexter's lab thus making him the only genius around. Mandark is always looking for a way to outdo Dexter in anyway possible. Mandark also has a major crush on Dee Dee which is a point that Dexter exploits all the time. His parents are actually peace loving and hippies in a sense. He repents his parent's ways, but still is forced by them to do peaceful rituals when the time comes.

Although Ben now has the added responsibility to protect others and fight evil forces, he still manages to find time for some mischief and fun!



    Character Bios

    Heat Blast - Comes from an alien race that lives on the sun rather than a planet. He can project bolts of fire from his hands and mouth, and create fireballs that he can either throw or roll.

    Weaknesses - Excess water.

    Debut Episode - "And Then There Were 10"

    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~

He can also fire the quills on his back as projectiles with incredible accuracy. Even though he has no eyes, his lack of vision is supplemented by his hearing and smell, which works almost as well as actual vision (which appear as red figures against a green backdrop).

    Powers/Strengths - Sharp quills, athletic ability, heightened senses of smell, hearing, and taste.

    Powers/Strengths - Super speed (300 mph), able to manipulate friction, ability to run on almost any surface.

    Weaknesses - Magnetic-based attacks/weapons.

    Grey Matter - At a mere five inches tall, he's part of an alien race bred to enter complex machines and repair them from the inside. Consequently, he can squeeze through extremely small spaces. He's extremely smart, which gives Ben a boost in intelligence when he's in this form.

    Powers/Strengths - Enhanced intelligence, ability to squeeze through small spaces, slimy skin allowing him to climb virtually anything.

    Weaknesses - Strength-based opponents/enemies.

    Debut Episode - "Washington B.C."

    Powers/Strengths - Acrobatic flight, six pincer legs, very sharp tail, slime-shooting eye-stalks.

    Weaknesses - Poisonous gases and water.

    Debut Episode - "Washington B.C."

    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~

    Powers/Strengths - Underwater breathing, agility; powerful jaws and sharp claws.

    Weaknesses - Dry land.

    Debut Episode - "The Krakken"

Zoe is 5, and there is a secret involving her that could create problems for the Shannon family. Commander Nathaniel Taylor warns the new arrivals of the dangers that surround them in Terra Nova. There are not only dinosaurs, but other settlers who have left the colony to start their own. The outcast colony is led by Mira, who left because she disagreed with Taylor as a leader. The Shannons soon discover not all the danger exists outside the walls of Terra Nova. Some of the members of their group disagree on how to save mankind and some may even be trying to destroy the new world before it can get started. While FOX has announced the cancellation, Terra Nova is being shopped to other networks.moreless

    NBC (ended 1969)
    "Space...The Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship, Enterprise. Its 5-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before!"

    The series is set in the 23rd century where Earth has survived World War III then moved on to explore the stars. Humanity has allied with other alien races and formed the United Federation of Planets, and Starfleet serves as its exploratory and military branch. Captain James T. Kirk of the starship Enterprise explores the galaxy with a crew of 430 men and women, contacting new life forms, conducting diplomat missions, and exploring the unknown.

    Star Trek premiered on NBC after executive producer and creator Gene Roddenberry produced not one but two pilots to convince them of the quality of his show. The series ran two years but never achieved good ratings despite building a small but solid fan following. A letter-writing campaign convinced NBC to run a third season, but Roddenberry left in protest and the network buried the show in a late Friday night time slot.

    After its three-year run Star Trek began running syndication where it was discovered by legion of new fans and became a phenomenon. This led to an animated series, six movies, and four spin-off television shows. Despite its short network run, Star Trek has become one of the most successful shows in television history.

    Aside from its three main stars, Star Trek featured a large cast of reoccurring guest stars that includes James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Walter Koenig, Majel Barrett, and Grace Lee Whitney. Other notable guest stars include Diana Muldaur, Gary Lockwood, Ricardo Montalban, Sally Kellerman, Julie Newmar, Frank Gorshin, John Colicos, Roger C. Carmel, William Campbell, Ted Cassidy, Michael Ansara and Elisha Cook, Jr. Notable writers for the series include Gene Roddenberry, Gene L. Coon, George Clayton Johnson, Jerry Sohl, Jerome Bixby, Robert Bloch, Theodore Sturgeon, Harlan Ellison, David Gerrold, and D.C. Fontana.moreless

    Cartoon Network (ended 2006)
    Rated: TV-PG through TV-14 "Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only, truth." -Alphonse Elric

    Edward and Alphonse Elric are two brothers gifted with the ability of alchemy, the science of taking one thing and changing it into another. However, alchemy works on the theory of Equivalent Exchange -- for something to be created, something else of equal value must be sacrificed. When their mother dies, Edward decides to do the unthinkable -- bringing her back to life by preforming Human Alchemy. However, both Edward and Alphonse know that by doing so they will be breaking one of Alchemy's biggest taboos.

    Believing they have nothing more to lose, Ed and Al go ahead with their plan. Unfortunately, something goes horribly wrong and Ed loses his leg while Al loses his body. In order to save his brother, Ed sacrifices his arm for Al's soul and attaches it to a suit of armor.

    Determined to correct what they have done and get their bodies back, the brothers decide to become State Alchemists to gain access to the State's enormous library on alchemy. There, they learn of the legendary Philosopher's Stone -- an item that allows an alchemist to bypass the Law of Equivalent Exchange. They soon learn that they are not the only ones after the Stone as other forces (including the Military) join in on the hunt.

    Main Characters

    Edward Elric: The older of the two brothers, he is also the most gifted. At the age of 12, he becomes the youngest person ever to pass the State Alchemist Exam. He is also a bit sensitive over being called 'short'.

    Alphonse Elric: Edward's younger brother, he has a gentle spirit in spite of the menacing appearance of his suit of armor. Also a gifted alchemist, he is determined to restore Ed's limbs and to feel human again.

    Winry Rockbell: Ed and Al's next door neighbor and childhood friend, Winry is an expert Auto-Mail mechanic who helped fit Ed with his limbs after the accident. She is close to both brothers, but is not afraid to let Ed have it when he deserves it.

    Colonel Roy Mustang: Ed's immediate supervisor, Colonel Mustang is also known as the Flame Alchemist. A very private individual, he has his own agenda.

    Lt. Colonel Maes Hughes: A military investigator, Hughes is a very easy-going, likable guy. Although not an alchemist, he has a talent with knives. He is currently obsessed with his baby daughter, of whom he can't stop talking about.

    Scar: First known as the State Alchemist Killer, he believes State Alchemists are defying the sacredness of the Almighty God. He vows to kill all State Alchemists and anyone who gets in his way.

    Lust: A Homunculus, her goal is to become fully human -- and she will use whatever means possible to achieve it. The Homunculi are beings created by a secret but evil alchemy.

    Gluttony: Lust's loyal Homunculus comrade. Named after one of the Seven Deadly Sins, he is also the creepiest character, since his name refers to his enormous appetite to eat almost anything -- particularly human beings.

    Envy: Another Homunculus who works with Lust. Also named after one of the Seven Deadly Sins, Envy has the ability to change form. Lust often uses Envy's skill to trick others into doing what she wants.
