Dollhouse Drama is the first part of the ninth episode of season one of Dexter's Laboratory, which aired on December 4, 1996. In this episode, Dexter starts to grow suspicious about why Dee Dee did not enter his lab on a particular day.
Dexter shrinks down really small and enters Dee Dee's room to spy on her to see what she is doing. He soon becomes an unwilling character in Dee Dee's doll story, but believes the story to be real, due to the shrinking's side effect that makes him confuse reality and fantasy.
One of the building blocks Dexter lands on is actually a Jack in the Box toy which pops out as the super hero Monkey launching Dexter in the air.
Darbie is a parody of the real-life sensational doll Barbie.
After Dexter returns to normal size, he's still hallucinating as he has Darbie on a Medical Ventilator and hooked up to other machines. Mom & Dee Dee speechless slowly back out and close the door after they walked in on him.
