Tee Party is the first part of the 11st aired and 10th produced episode of season 4 of Dexter's Laboratory. In this episode, Dexter and Dad enter a golf tournament. However, Dad's ineptitude with the sport makes things hard for him, so Dexter helps him out by resorting to cheating.

The episode was produced in 2003 and premiered on Cartoon Network in the United States on September 26 of that year.


Dad and Dexter hurry over to a golf course and find that a tournament is taking place. Inside the pro shop, Dad asks Billy, the man behind the counter, to get him a cart, but Billy objects. As Dad and Dexter prepare to leave, Billy offers to help Dad out by letting him ride a tricycle.

On the golf course, Dad prepares to take his swing, but is unable to as the ball keeps falling off the tee. Dexter tries to remind him, but is cut off. While he's not looking, one of the golfers picks up Dad's tee and sets it upright. After making preparations, Dad pulls out a putter and goes to hit the ball. Instead of hitting the ball, Dad releases his grip on the putter and it bounces off a tree and strikes one of his opponents in their head.

Dad is then penalized with a stroke and he prepares to hit the ball. Instead of hitting it ahead, Dad sends the golf ball behind him. On his fourth stroke, Dad hits his golf ball with the tip of his club and sends it flying toward the green. Thinking it was a mistake, he walks over to his golf ball, picks it up, and has a mulligan.

Later, Dexter comes up with an idea to help counter Dad's ineptness at golf. He reaches inside his lab coat pocket and pulls out a radio controlled golf ball. He then distracts Dad by kicking up some grass, then swapping the golf balls. After Dad swings, Dexter controls the ball to the cup on the green, earning Dad a hole in one.

As the tournament goes on, Dad racks up holes in one with Dexter's help, much to the other golfers' shock. On the 17th hole, Dad notices that the RC golf ball is dirty and goes to wash it. When Dexter tried to tell him what really happened, Dad washes the RC golf ball and it explodes. He then goes back to using a regular golf ball, and after swinging, Dad gets a hole in one on the 18th hole.

He and Dexter hug after winning the trophy.
