Another Dad Cartoon is the second segment of the eleventh episode in season 3 of Dexter's Laboratory. It first aired on July 5, 2002.

In this episode, Dad spends the day dancing while Dexter, Dee Dee, and Mom go shopping.


As Dad is in the living room reading his newspaper, Mom tells him that she, Dexter, and Dee Dee are heading off to the market. After they leave, Dad puts his newspaper down, turns on the gramophone, then starts dancing around the house.

Meanwhile, as Mom drives to the market, she realizes she left the checkbook at home, then turns the family car around to go get it. Back at home, Dad finishes his dance just as Mom opens the front door. After Mom gets the checkbook, she heads back to the market and Dad resumes dancing once more.
