Down in the Dumps is the third part of the 17th episode in season 2 of Dexter's Laboratory, which aired on November 5, 1997. In this episode, Dee Dee uses her stuffed teddy bear Mr. Fuzzums to annoy Dexter. He then takes the stuffed animal on a pretend trip, which causes Mr. Fuzzums to land at the city dump.




  • When Dexter launches Mr. Fuzzums out of the lab through the chimney, the driveway is not seen, but when Dee Dee is seen going to get Mr. Fuzzums, it reappears.
  • Dexter jokingly says "Da da da dum..." at the end of the episode as a "suspense effect".
