Barbequor, the fourth episode in Dial M for Monkey, is the second segment of the fourth episode in season one of Dexter's Laboratory. It originally aired on TNT on May 18, 1996 and a day later on both TBS and Cartoon Network.

In this episode, Barbequor and the Silver Spooner interrupt Monkey's birthday party when the former decides to devour the planets. He teams up with the Justice Friends to stop them.


To be added.



  • Following the episode's airing, it was banned from airing on Cartoon Network and was excluded from the Season 1 DVD and online media streaming services, in which it was replaced with the season 2 episode "Dexter's Lab: A Story". It was widely speculated that the Silver Spooner, the henchman of Barbequor, was a stereotypical gay man as well as Krunk getting drunk of liquor near the end of the episode. However, this episode was included when the Season 1 DVD released in Region 4.
    • In reality, the writers received copyright infringement threats from Marvel Comics over the Silver Spooner being a misuse of the Silver Surfer.
