  • Episode Description
  • Bride of the Swamp Monster: Muriel buys a necklace at a store in which two pictures can fit inside. She puts a picture of herself and Courage on one side, and Eustace on the other side. After they leave the store, Eustace's truck crashes into a swamp. Muriel and Courage have to help push Eustace's truck out of the mud. Muriel loses her necklace in the swamp while pushing the truck. A swamp monster finds it, opens it up, and looks at Muriel's picture. He thinks it's his long lost bride swamp monster. He goes to the Bagge house and kidnaps her. He brings Muriel to the swamp in a wedding dress. Courage finds the real swamp bride and brings her back to him. Courage rescues Muriel.Goat Pain: Muriel's back starts to hurt, so Eustace takes her to Dr. Vindaloo because she can't make him any food in that condition. He tells them they must go to a top of Mount Nowhere, where a hot spring is located in order to heal her. Courage, Muriel, and Eustace head up toward the mountain. On top lives a goat, who has been neglected by humans, trashing his habitat, and draining up the spring. Eventually, he was the only one left, and now, he chases people off the island by hitting them with his horns. After the goat tells his story, he makes Muriel and Courage hold up gigantic rocks for torture. Courage then accidentally re-opens the hot spring and he cleans up the garbage. The goat and Muriel return to normal health by relaxing in the spring.moreless

    Notes (4)

    • Muriel: You sprung the spring, Courage, and my pain is completely gone!

    • "Bride of the Swamp Monster / Goat Pain" was first shown as a new episode of Courage on Scare-Toon Scare-Toon Frightdays.

    • Judging how the store was called "Kev's Shop" we can assume that the old guy seen in many episodes (the runner of the store) is named Kev. (He's NOT named Floyd. He was called that in "Cowboy Courage," but that doesn't count because it was just a dream.)

    • In "Bride of the Swamp Monster," a Cartoon Network logo sign is seen sitting in the store. However, it has missing letters so it says "Art on work".

    Trivia (2)

    • In "Bride of the Swamp Monster", when Courage is on the computer, the first person who shows up in the search is Nancy. Her residence is "New Joisey" and her occupation is as an exotic dancer.

    • The goat never explains what happened to the water! He says the humans "used it up," but how could they use it up enough to the point of there being no water there? And there must have been some water left when the goat drove them away. (Or why would they still have been there?) It's true that the goat never explained what happened to the water, but the audience can guess what happened. Near the end of the episode, when the goat pushes Courage down from the top of the mountain, he holds on to a bottle that's jammed into the rocks. When he falls holding the bottle, water pours from the hole. Apparently, when the humans came, they littered, and the bottle jammed the hole. The goat probably didn't realize this, and that's why he says they "used it up".
