That's Using Your Head is the third segment of the thirty-first in season 2 of Dexter's Laboratory, which first aired on March 18, 1998.

In this episode, Dexter sees an eccentric homeless man with electronics on his head who speaks gibberish. He comes under the belief that the man may be trying to contact aliens, so Dexter takes the man to his lab for further research.


To be added.




  • Running gag: When the homeless man disappears Dexter asks "Where did he go?"


  • When Dexter enters Dee Dee's room to find the homeless man in her pile of stuffed dolls, he isn't holding anything, but a few frames later, Dexter is seen holding the same doll shown in the stuffed animal pile.

Cultural References[]

  • The store Dexter is shopping at, Electronics To Go, is a parody of electronic stores such as Best Buy.
  • In Dee Dee's stuffed animal pile, the following characters are seen:
    • The teddy bear closely resembles Winnie-the-Pooh from A.A. Milne's book of the same name.
    • The stuffed dog seen on the eccentric man resembles Snoopy from the Peanuts comics.
    • Two of the dolls are Bubbles who, originally unnamed, first appeared in Whoopass Stew, the pilot episode of The Powerpuff Girls.

Production Notes[]

  • This episode along with "Dad is Disturbed" and "Framed" were produced in the same year of 1998 according to the credits.
