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

    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.

    What a creepy, mysterious, and sometimes straight up horrifying show for a kids network. And somehow it was one of the best shows i and many others have watched. You've got the extremely coward dog as the title says, but always tries to be brave and protect Muriel, his owner. Then there's Eustice, Muriel's abusive husband and always seems to be the unlucky one at the end of each episode. Muriel on the other hand is sweet to courage, but can also be very stupid sometimes. Yeah this show doesn't have many other characters, but to be perfectly honest, it doesn't even need more characters. That's what makes it so much more creepy; two people and their dog living in the middle of nowhere. Anyway on with this show. The plot sometimes gets repetetive, and some villains were pretty ridiculous. But courage must always have to take the difficult journey to defeat the villain and get back Muriel, which is usually always the plot, but I don't give a shit. My favorite villain was probably Kat :) so mysterious. The soundtrack adds even more to the spookiness, and that one scene where there are GODDAMN CHILDREN SINGING A NURSERY RHYME WHILE MURIELS NEPHEW IS GIVING COURAGE A HAIRCUT?!?!?!!??????!???!?? That is the all time SCARIEST thing I very saw on a cartoon. And it turns out that scene is actually based of children being abused in real life by adults. But still, it always seems to have that "kiddish" touch to it, such as courages over reacted screams. Overall, if ur looking for a kid cartoon, and looking for some scary mysterious stuff, this is the show for u. One of the best shows of CN evermoreless

    In short, I loved this show, because it pushed limits. Yes, there were hardcore themes, but they handled it professionally and creativity. I like to call this "Oh yeah, Nostalgia"
