  • show Description
  • Courage the Cowardly Dog was an abandoned dog and was found by his owner Muriel who lives in the middle of Nowhere, Kansas with her husband Eustace Bagge. Eustace is a failed farmer who farms no more. His most prized object is his old truck. He is usually watching his old black and white televison and is always asking for his meal. He is crazy about his red chair. Muriel loves to sit in her rocking chair watch her favorite show (not mentioned what it's called), cook, play her sitar, and enjoy talking with Courage. Eustace, on the other hand, dislikes Courage. He scares him with a mask. Courage is a dog almost afraid of everything and with the help of his computer he battles the villians and saves himself and his owners. They don't have any neighbors that live next door. Katz is the most common villian that is seen on the show, he thinks up wise traps to lure people into their doom. The bickering of Eustace, the old customs of Muriel, the action of the villians, and the humor of Courage make it a great show!moreless

    • Courage: (screams, then in a deep voice) This shouldn't happen to a dog!

    • Fox: And one cute little old granny. What! I ain't got me one of them. Well, I'll just have to get me one.

    • Fox: I was born lucky. (Wheel lands on win). You see, I win. (Courage hits him with wooden hammer.)

    • Katz: Welcome to the Katz Motel. I'm Katz. Will you please sign in? (angrily snaps his fingers and points to the sign "No Dog Allowed".) No dogs allowed.

    • Katz: Leaving so soon? (closes door and Courage throws Eustace to him.) I wish you haven't done that.

    • Muriel: Come on, Courage, we're leaving! The service here stinks!

    • Cajun Fox: Where am I going to find me a cute, little, old granny?!

    • Muriel: Is that Cajun Fox stew? Courage, shall we have some? Cajun Fox: No, no! Fox stew is not for you! Courage: No, thanks... I've had enough cajun for one day!

    Trivia (168)

    • In this episode, Courage tries to get out of the chicken coop. He finally gets out by blowing it up. Then when he runs back to the house, the chicken coop comes back.

    • Muriel is seen taking a bath for the first time in "A Night at The Katz Motel." Eustace won't be seen taking a bath until "Night of the Weremole." Courage won't be seen taking a bath until "Queen of the Black Puddle."

    • A running gag throughout the series is that several bad things happen to Eustace and in the next episode it is like nothing happened at all.

    • In "A Night at the Katz Motel," they stay in room number 666 1/2. 666 is said to be the number of Satan, so this was either to add comedy to it or to prevent the use of the number.

    • In "Katz Motel," when Katz holds the racket, the handle has fewer stripes than it does when Muriel is holding it.

    • Later, in "Klub Katz" and "Forbidden Hat of Gold," we learn that Courage can take off his head and reattach it. In "A Night at the Katz Motel," Courage wanted to get off his leash. Why didn't he just take off his head?

    • In "Cajun Granny Stew," Courage calls the police. When he does, he dials a bunch of numbers on the phone. Wouldn't he just have to dial 911?

    • On "Le Quack Amnesia Specialist" when Le Quack is in front of the kitchen door before he opens it to see the mouse, for a split second his faked mustache appears.

    • Courage: This shouldn't happen to a dog!
      There is a Bugs Bunny cartoon made before this, where Bugs Bunny is being chased by an Elmer Fudd-like hunting dog. The last scene takes place underwater, and after Bugs escapes the hunting dog, he says, "This shouldn't happen to a dog." Then, the screen closes in on his nose. Coincidence?

    • Motel The whole idea of the "A Night at the Katz Motel" episode is very similar to the movie Psycho. In a "godforsaken" motel, the crazy owner wants to kill the guests.

    • Existence Bigfoot is a creature thought to exist, but no solid evidence has been found.

    • In "Freaky Fred," the gerbil has blue eyes before Fred cut all his hair off. After he cuts it, his eyes are like normal character eyes.

    • Freaky Fred: Character The character Fred is based off of Sweeny Todd, a play about a barber named Sweeny Todd who would kill his clients who would then be turned into meat pies in the pie shop below his barber shop.

    • The Demon: The Exorcist
      Everything that the demon did (the green vomiting, the head spinning) is all directly from the horror movie, The Exorcist.

    • Courage: Rowdy roo! Rowdy roo!
      When Courage is trying to say the chant to the demon, he's talking just like Scooby-Doo. (I.E. adding "r" to the beginning of every word.)

    • Eustace: Whack-a-mole When Eustace is trying to whack Muriel as a wolf in the room with his mallet, this is a reference to the popular arcade game "Whack-a-mole."
