A Boy and His Bug is the second part of the 26th episode of the second season in Dexter's Laboratory. In this episode, Dexter's metal-eating termite, Timmy, is designed to eat everything that Dee Dee destroys in the lab. When he becomes neglected, he eats everything in the lab to spite Dexter. The boy genius must stop Timmy before the entire lab is devoured.
The episode name is a pun on the NES video game A Boy and His Blob.
Dexter's Magnifying Glass helmet is similar to what Wayne Szalinski wears in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids
When Dexter looks for Timmy when the magnifying glass looks at the audience he is not wearing glasses and when he turns they are back on and when he faces the audience again they are off again
