Figure Not Included is the twenty-fourth episode in season 2 of Dexter's Laboratory. It first aired on September 10, 1997.

In this episode, Dexter wants to join the Major Glory gang, but he is unable to because he doesn't have his own Major Glory action figure. He then creates one of his own to join in.

Plot[]

One afternoon, three boys are showing each other their Major Glory action figures, but their time together is cut short as Dexter jumps in. He shows them a cardboard cut-out Major Glory figure, to which the boys laugh at him. Insulted, the Major Glory gang walks off, with one of them telling Dexter to get himself a real Major Glory action figure.

Back at home, Dexter asks Mom to buy himself a Major Glory action figure. Mom agrees to get him one for his birthday, which Dexter objects to. Inside Dexter's lab, he looks at his cutout in defeat and tosses it. Dexter explains his plight to Dee Dee and she tells him that he should make his own doll. Suddenly, this gives Dexter an idea and he goes to work on crafting his own Major Glory action figure.

The next day, the Major Glory gang runs down the sidewalk flying their figures and are stopped as they see Dexter's own Major Glory action figure flying around them, leaving them in stunned silence. As Dexter explains the features, the Major Glory gang is in awe at the figure's features. They then ask Dexter if they could each get one. He agrees to, and back in his lab that night, Dexter makes more Major Glory action figures.

The following afternoon, Dexter gives the Major Glory gang their action figures each with separate powers. However, an argument between the Major Glory gang embroils, as they can't decide whose action figure is better. They then pressure Dexter to give them the same powers, which he does after taking all three action figures back home with him. After making the fixes, Computer warns Dexter about the possibility of the action figures overloading as he races out of his lab and back to the Major Glory gang.

A fight between the three custom Major Glory action figures ensues, and while they do so, the figures overload and explode. Before the Major Glory gang kicks Dexter out of their group, the real Major Glory appears looking for Dexter. When Dexter introduces himself to him, Major Glory takes him to meet his attorney as Dexter has committed copyright infringement.
