I think Rudyard Kipling’s famous dictum of “East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet" deserves to be forgiven because the Eastern World (whether it be India, China, Korea, Japan or even the Near/Middle East) is demonstrating to the Western World (whether it be The United States or even Europe) that their true enemy may not be each other, but rather the threat of corruption as well as the threat of conquest and enslavement by an ancient dark power sorta like Lord of the Rings' Sauron or something.


So what do you think of my idea or suggestion?

STOP it, Sauron! by timbox129
STOP it, Sauron!

And now for a serious talk between Dexter and Dee Dee’s mom with no name from the 1990s cartoon Dexter’s Laboratory, and the evil Dark Lord Sauron, the Lord of the Rings himself:

Dexter’s Mom: STOP it, Sauron!

Sauron: Why so, mother of Dexter and Dee Dee?

Dexter’s Mom: Because you are harassing those so-called free peoples of Middle Earth for too long with that evil little ring! That's why! Your ugly and so-called armies of Mordor must disband, and you are to leave Middle-earth never to return ‘cause you’re going to the Void to join your old boss Morgoth in exile! Otherwise, let Aragorn, Frodo or Gandalf do it!

Well anyway, Dexter’s Laboratory and The Lord of the Rings don’t usually mix, don’t they?

Mandark gathers his Dark Legions for all-out war by timbox129
Mandark gathers his Dark Legions for all-out war

In a MSPaint/Photoshop piece done for Dexter’s Odyssey, which is my great, visionary lifetime dream project, the evil Mandark gathers his dark legions at the base of his dark fortress and addresses his evil troops from his balcony before he sends them off marching to war against the free nations of the world (which are led by Dexter, Dexter's sister Dee Dee, and Dee Dee's friends Mee Mee and Lee Lee, of course!).

Sorta like a Lord of the Rings-style battle/war, isn’t it?

Before the Enemy Charges... by timbox129
Before the Enemy Charges...
In Disney's 1998 interpretation of the ancient Chinese legend of Mulan, The Mongol/Hun Army of Shan Yu are about to descend towards Fa Mulan and Captain Li Shang's out-manned Chinese company with sweeping epic ferocity.

Epic, isn't it?

The Great Visionary Dream of Timothy McKenzie by timbox129
The Great Visionary Dream of Timothy McKenzie
If the movie Fantasia (1940) is considered the great, visionary dream of Walt Disney himself, then Dexter’s Odyssey (TBD)—being a very ambitious attempt to transform the mid-to-late 1990s kids cartoon TV show, Dexter’s Laboratory (1996-2003), into a very grand, epic mixture of action, comedy, fantasy, adventure, drama, music, sound, color, intricate design and movement (no matter how highly stylized the treatment of the (mostly 2D classical hand drawn) animation and design work may be, even with some CGI added), and grand, intricate tapestry-style epic widescreen storytelling as well as epic fury, and complete with raging epic battles, rousing rescues and derring-do, dinosaur stampedes, intense dramatic closeups, and sweeping epic camera moves to tell of the epic journey of Dexter, a boy in a lab coat, Dee Dee, his sister in a ballerina’s tutu, and Mee Mee and Lee Lee, her ballerina’s tutu-wearing black and Asian friends, on a quest to stop Mandark, Dexter’s rival gone evil and power-mad as well as corrupt, from bringing death and destruction to the kids’ suburban community—and to Dexter’s Lab itself—with a mighty war machine presumably modeled on Nazi Germany or so—is going to be the great, visionary dream of yours truly, Timothy McKenzie (if only I have the power to help bring it to life on the screen), or would it?

Hello. My name is Tim. My favorite cartoons are Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack, while one of my favorite movies is James Cameron's AVATAR. I always wanted to become a filmmaker and animation artist.

I know I am autistic, but would my quest to fulfill my dreams be built on as well end in controversy or not?

If so, would my actual life (especially on the internet and especially during the making of Dexter's Odyssey) might forever remain the subject of controversy?

I thought Japanese/Chinese Boys don't wear Komonos however you spell it.

Well, Japanese and Chinese boys do wear their traditional clothes (kimonos for boys of the Japanese kind) in ancient days, and some modern Japanese boys (or sometimes girls) still wore traditional kimonos, though some wore more modern clothes. 

After all, Samurai Jack is a cartoon to you and I, so Jack still wears a kimono even as a child, given the fact that he is a time-displaced warrior prince.

Hello, if you're interested in making an epic film, I'd recommend reading "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" by Joseph Campbell. Some of the best directors have used it as a guide.

Here's an update for you, soundofspheres. It's official that I finally got the book "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" by Joseph Campbell yesterday on Christmas Morning 2012. Thank you, soundofsphere, for recommending me to read Joseph Campbell's classic 1949 book The Hero with a Thousand Faces, and I'll make sure to use that book as a guide if I am interested in making an epic film like my intended masterpiece (and proposed Dexter's Laboratory reboot) the monumental and colossal 12-part live action/animated epic that is Dexter's Odyssey.

Again, thanks a lot for recommending that influential book by Joseph Campbell to me.

Once again, Thank You!
