Courage the Cowardly Dog

Show Summary

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

  • One of Cartoon Network's best. And one of the darkest cartoons ever.

    9.5
    In the late 90s came a lot of great shows on Cartoon Network. But one of the best (And one of the darkest, creepiest, and scariest cartoons ever) was without a doubt Courage the Cowardly Dog. Courage was a dog who in each episode protects his family from a whole slew of creatures. Like an evil, psychotic cat, a crazy, french duck, an alien chicken and many other creatures and people. This show was so good. It was by far one of the creepiest shows ever created.



    When the show came out I remember it scared the crap out of me. I'm 24 now, and characters like King Rameses, the Spirit of the Harvest Moon, and the violin girl from Schwick's episode still scare the crap out of me. But it was so addicting that I kept watching. Courage was such a dark show I'm surprised that they showed it on a kids station. One of the best parts of the show were definately Courage's reactions to the scary parts, even though in later episodes they got pretty gruesome, the vast majority of them were very funny. Courage is just so cute (Yes, I'm a guy). The computer was pretty funny too. One of the things that always threw me off about this show though, was Eustice. In almost every episode something happens to him, something that always seems to be irreversable. I think he even died in a few. Just how does he come back? Hmmmm.



    Finally. I know the show is called Courage The Cowardly Dog, but there's a contradiction with that name, which is also the message that this show is trying to tell. Courage is by no means a coward. Yeah his name is Courage, and he's obviously a scaredy ca - umm, dog. But he's definately no coward. He risks his life to save his family (even Eustice sometimes). He faces dangerous monsters, he's scared to do it, but he fights them to protect the ones he loves. That is the true meaning of "courage". That's also why Courage The Cowardly Dog is one of the best Cartoon Cartoons.moreless

    Courage is one of those shows that should be brought back like all the 90s glory. It is colorful, funny dialogue and perfect animation. That's why I recommend this show to everyone that likes the 90s CN glory.
  • This show was wacky, grim, freaky and awkward...

    9.0
    and that's precisely what made it work. Courage was a lovable character and yes I do think he was better off not talking as much as he did in early episodes. The dialogue was almost pitch perfect. The voice acting was amazing and the feeling was just right. It really stood out as a show. Too bad it had to end so damn early, but I'm also glad it ended on a high note.moreless

    This series was disturbing, horrifying, and sad at times. This is what set it apart from the popular idea that cartoons are supposed to be dandy and whimsical. This show could've been a very lasting show of it weren't for a little move: it was targeted at CHILDREN. This was the reason the show was cancelled, and rightfully so. Who shows this to children? If it had been targeted at adults, the show would've stayed. The series was great, it just shouldn't have been shown to kids.moreless

    My dad and I watch this show everyday and we find the series cool. Courage and Eustace are so awesome together. Some of the episodes are scary, but good. I love this show, no matter what.
