"Game Over" is the third part of the seventh episode in the first season of Dexter's Laboratory.

Plot

When Dexter and Dee Dee's father buys his children a video game, Dexter plugs in the cartridge and becomes trapped inside. Dexter manages to contact Dee Dee to help him, but Dee Dee makes him promise to play any game with her and not get mad.

Why It Should Become a Video Game

  1. Although Master Computer may seem like a boring shovelware game with simple gameplay & only one level of play, it can actually talk and has evil powers - making it very cool.
  2. Some emotional moments, such as Dee Dee crying when Dexter said to get out of his laboratory along with Dexter feeling remorse when realizing that he can't play games to save his life.
  3. Dee Dee managing to score 2000 points in the game Dexter and her played at the start is very impressive, along with Dexter's computer sending a message in the form of a robot.
  4. The plot is very creative, as it has Dexter getting trapped in the insides of Master Computer (a talking video game cartridge) when plugging it into the console and must convince Dee Dee to play a game of said name.
    • In a way, it's also the 90's version of the season 3 episode, "Dos Boot" (but with video games instead of computers), and the Fairly OddParents episode, "Power Mad".
  5. A berry trying to eat Dexter is a clever reference to the classic 1980 arcade game, Pac-Man.
  6. Good Ending: Dee Dee plays a game of Master Computer and so, the evil computer is gone and it ends with Dexter in the game him and Dee Dee played at the start.

Reception

  • It holds a rating of 7.6/10 on IMDB.

Trivia

  • It's a parody of the 1982 Disney film, Tron.
  • The robot suit Dexter used to defeat Master Computer would return in the season 3 episode, "Dos Boot".
