Oh Brother is the first part of the eleventh episode in the third season of Dexter's Laboratory.

Plot

Dexter turns Dee Dee into a boy but is disappointed when "he" is not a genius as Dexter would like it.

Why, Oh Brother, It Sucks

  1. The concept of Dexter turning her sister into a boy just to make her a lab assistant is a bad idea.
  2. Doo Dee, the male version of Dee Dee is extremely unlikable because he treats Dexter like garbage by throwing him around the house like a football. He is also a Karma Houdini who never got any comeuppance for his actions.
  3. Both of Dexter's parents are at their absolute worst because they never punish Doo Dee for his actions, but instead they praise him for that and offer all the food to him and nothing to Dexter.
  4. Dexter is treated like a Butt-Monkey in this episode. He is always getting beaten up by Doo Dee harshly and is ignored by his parents, even though he did nothing wrong.
  5. The scene where Doo Dee was eating was disgusting.
  6. As always, the title card looks generic with Dexter inside a bubble carrying a gun.
  7. The episode is very sexist and seems to promote misandry and sexism towards men and boys as when Dee Dee turns into Doo Dee, she immediately becomes a jerk after having her gender changed, suggesting that being a jerk is inherently a trait for boys. It is also very insulting and offensive towards transgender people and people who have underwent a sex change operation.
  8. Hypocrisy: On two counts with both in regards to the episode's sexism
    • First off the episode is directed by Chris Savino, who is male yet he directed an episode that offends men. This makes Savino come across as a boomerang bigot.
    • Secondly, Dexter, while a victim is a male and the episode basically tries to state that all men are inherently jerks by having Doo Dee bully a boy around and Doo Dee is a male all because of an experiment done by Dexter.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Decent ending where Dexter lures Doo Dee in the machine by using his football and turns him back to Dee Dee.
  2. Doo Dee's design looks good.
