Game for a Game is the third part of the 35th episode in season 2 of Dexter's Laboratory, which first appeared on April 15, 1998. In this episode, Dee Dee proves she can beat Dexter at any game. Dexter resorts to cheating and wins most of them that way. On the final game, Dexter blows his lab to smithereens when he was close to losing.


Morning rises, Dee Dee wakes up and sees the sun, and she jumps out of bed and sings a little song about what she's going to do today on a sunny day, when she finished singing and opened the window, the sunny day turned into a rainy day so fast! So she decides that she will go play games with Dexter. Most of these game, that Dexter lost, because Dee Dee can win at any game, any time, anywhere! Dexter decides to make the Dexatorium, And they start to play Hungry Hungry Rhinos, which Dexter so obviously wins. Game #2 is a special version of Twister, which Dexter wins again! Later on, Dexter and Dee Dee finally play BattleBoat! After Dexter destroyed the lab, the sun comes out and Dee Dee leaves to enjoy it like he should've done before. Dexter's computer tries to give him the cold truth about how his cruelty has left him with no lab, while Dee Dee and her free spirit has the whole of nature to enjoy. However, Dexter rudely dismisses her and orders her to make him a sandwich, which she does...literally.

Dee Dee's Little Song

  • Puttin; up my hair for the sunny day, thinkin' 'bout the games that I'm gonna play. Up and down the street, I will jump and run. Blow a little kiss to my good friend the sun. Feeling warm inside, got a sunny mode. Better make my bed so I don't seem rude. Off with my PJs, I will take it. Oops! I almost walked out naked. Sunny days are keen, Sunny days are neat. Open up the window and sunny day I'll breath. (Thunder claps, it obviously starts to rain.)
  • Dee Dee: Now what? That's it!



  • This is the first time where Dee Dee appears naked onscreen.
