WHAT THE HECK IS THIS?
Many moons ago in the year 2001, I lived in Los Angeles, trying my hand at screenwriting (something I’m still working on today, with just a little more luck–no one buys original screenplays these days!). Part of that effort was writing demo scripts for shows for which I would have enjoyed writing. For me, that was both Dexter’s Lab and The Powerpuff Girls. So I put together a script for a crossover episode called Summer Camp Crush. What follows is that demo script, in its entirety, raw and unedited (there are typos and the formatting didn’t translate to WordPress perfectly). If you’re a fan of either or both shows, I think you’ll enjoy it. I never did anything with this, so you all are the very first people to see this writing from the vault.

Yes, how may I help you?
We, as in the audience and myself, well
we were wondering where the girls are off
Why, I just dropped the girls off at
summer camp this morning.
Summer camp! Of course. It is summer
