Blackfoot and Slim is the first segment of the thirty-sixth episode in season 2 of Dexter's Laboratory. It first aired on April 22, 1998.

In this episode, Dexter and Dee Dee, under the codenames "Blackfoot" and "Slim" respectively, are unknowingly participating in a nature documentary team's observance on them.


A documentary shows Tom Kenny narrating the secret lives of Dexter and Dee Dee, also known as Blackfoot and Slim, "Blackfoot" and "Slim" in their "natural habitat." How they work and how they even eat. Before Tom could witness this documentary further, Blackfoot discovered him and makes a run for it, but Tom Kenny tranquilizes him.


  • Tom Kenny: Nearly upon his meal, Blackfoot is knocked out of the running by larger more agdual creatures. Who go with the act of eating in a grossom animalisitic manner! OH, I can't watch!
  • Tom Kenny: Hey, that tickles!
  • Tom Kenny: Amazing!



  • Dexter is seen running around with his head on fire, just like he did in Dexter's Assistant.
