Dyno-Might is the first segment of the thirty-eighth episode in season 2 of Dexter's Laboratory. It first aired on May 6, 1998.

In this episode, Blue Falcon, one of the protagonists of the TV show Dynomutt, Dog Wonder, asks Dexter to fix his bumbling sidekick Dynomutt. While doing so, Dexter invents a bigger and better version of Dynomutt, aptly named Dynomutt X-90, to stop crime, but the robot soon goes haywire when it attacks people for the most inoffensive crimes. Dexter and Blue Falcon team up to stop it.


Dexter is in his lab screwing a bolt. Dee Dee takes one of the pipes and puts them on her feet. She waddles and accidentally falls onto the pipes, pulling every single one of them apart. Dexter starts bellowing at Dee Dee, but gets interrupted by the doorbell. Blue Falcon stands at the door with a very injured Dynomutt in his hands. He and Dexter both head back into the laboratory to fix him up. Blue Falcon explains what happened to Dynomutt, and Dexter promises he'll fix Dynomutt up.

Later, Dexter is finishing up repairing Dynomutt, and tests him out by plugging a plug into his nose. Dynomutt wakes up and starts wandering around the lab, touching and destroying everything he sees. Dexter realizes Dynomutt's behaving like Dee Dee and yanks the plug out of his nose. Dynomutt is then thrown in the junk box. Dexter calls Blue Falcon back to his lab to reveal a new and enhanced Dynomutt X-90. To test the new build out, Dexter orders the robotic dog to stop crime. Everything goes well until Dynomutt X-90 starts attacking innocent bystanders for minor issues. Dexter and Blue Falcon team up and go after him.

In the park, Dynomutt X-90 prepares to fire lasers at a girl sniffing flowers, but is interrupted as Dexter and Blue Falcon enter the scene. The duo throws everything they've got at Dynomutt X-90, but he vaporizes everything and traps them in electrical wires. Blue Falcon explains who the real Dynomutt is, and calls for him using a receiver. Dynomutt heads to the park to save Dexter and his trusted leader. He first turns his head into a cat, and X-90 goes after him, dropping both Dexter and Blue Falcon.

In the city, Dynomutt fires a bone that X-90 goes after. He chomps the bone, but it explodes. Dexter uses the moment of opportunity to plug the cartridge into X-90's back. X-90 shorts out and falls over on his side. Dynomutt, Dexter, and Blue Falcon all high five each other. At Dexter's house, Blue Falcon lands the plane and drops Dexter off. Dee Dee watches as Blue Falcon flies off, and she and Dexter enter the house holding hands.



Dexter's Dad: Nice uniform! You on some kind of sports team?

Blue Falcon: I’m the Blue Falcon.

Dexter’s Dad: Oh right, the Falcons! You guys didn’t do so hot, last season, huh?

Blue Falcon: I’m the Blue Falcon!

Dexter’s Dad: Oh, don’t be blue. I'm sure you'll do better next season.
