Episode Summary

A Beaver's Tale / The Nutcracker
A Beaver's Tale: The Bagge's yard gets flooded, and Eustace and Muriel go for a swim. Everything is all right until the water rises too high and enters their house. Courage paddles around in the water to the town of Nowhere and stops when he sees a beaver putting up a dam. Courage tries to ask him nicely to stop building it because it's ruining their home, but the beaver just hits him with his tail. Courage then finds out the beaver's real love is for music and not construction. The beaver starts to hit his tail as a rhythm on the dam. Courage picks the string on his yo-yo, like an instrument. The beaver's tale constantly hitting the dam eventually breaks it. Courage's house's water level dries up to nothing. Muriel and Eustace then attend a concert in a local karaoke-type place to watch Courage and the beaver play their instruments.

The Nutcracker: Muriel, Courage, and Eustace head down to the local dump to look for stuff they might want. Most of it is just pure junk, except this nutcracker they find. When the sun sets everything then starts to get creepy. Rats come out of hidden holes and chase Muriel, Courage, and Eustace so they can eat them. These aren't no ordinary rats, they dance to music while they chase people. Courage and Muriel get chased for a long amount of time, Courage then sits to take a rest. He looks at where Muriel once was and she is missing! He then finds out that the rats have Muriel and Eustace tied up in a big pot. Courage then starts to dance and uses the nutcracker to cut off the rope that tied up Muriel and Eustace. Courage then makes a whole bunch of junk piles fall down and land on top of the evil-dancing rats. Eustace tries to use the Nutcracker to crack a nut, but it doesn't work. The reason it was thrown out in the first place!moreless
