Project Dee Dee is the third segment of the twenty-second episode in season 2 of Dexter's Laboratory. It first aired on December 3, 1997.

In this episode, Dexter becomes fixated on helping Dee Dee with a science project she has to work on for school, but she tells him she doesn't need his help.


As Dexter is in his lab working on his invention, the Pistol Enhanced Laser Syringe, Dee Dee enters, interrupting him in the process. She tells him about her science project, delighting Dexter. He proceeds to explain about how he can help Dee Dee in various ways but is cut off as Dee Dee tells him that she only needs tape. Thinking she was joking, Dexter continues on his way. Angered, Dee Dee leaves the lab and goes to find some tape herself. Dexter stops laughing and is in disbelief about how Dee Dee doesn't need his help.

In the kitchen, Dee Dee is working on her science project. Dexter sneaks in showing her his invention. Dee Dee tells him that she's only allowed to use household items and she doesn't need his help. Dexter leaves the kitchen feeling annoyed. Later, as Dee Dee continues to work on her project, Dexter sends a Mom-Droid into the kitchen to check on her, impersonating Mom in the process. Dee Dee tells the Mom-Droid that she doesn't need Dexter's help, making it angry in the process. During its tirade, Dad walks toward the Mom-Droid and pinches its rear.

Later, Dexter presents Dee Dee with a direct intercom from the kitchen to his lab. Eager for Dee Dee's call, Dexter goes to his lab to wait on her. He eventually grows tired of waiting. That night, Dee Dee calls Dexter to the kitchen, to which he eagerly rushes in there with the syringe. Dee Dee shows Dexter her propulsion project. Dexter castigates the project, calling it "crude" and "simple". He then proposes to help Dee Dee get a better grade. After thinking it over, Dee Dee agrees to let Dexter help her. He then takes Dee Dee's project and runs out.

At school the next day, several students in Dee Dee's class show their propulsion projects, all of which have different results. When it was Dee Dee's turn, she nervously explains about her propulsion project to her classmates, with Dexter watching in a nearby window. Dee Dee then reveals her propulsion project to the class: Her small pink car with a rocket attached to the rear. As Dee Dee presses the button on a remote control, the rocket's exhaust pipe blows her out of the classroom and sends the school into orbit.

Dexter and Dee Dee then run away from the school on Dee Dee's propulsion car as they head toward the border.
