Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • 1000 years of Courage: Courage discovers a world of banana people. Family Business: A confused robber thinks that Courage, Muriel, and Eustace are his family.

    I never have really been amazed by a Courage episode, even though it's one of my favorite shows, I only rate it in the 8 range like now. But i liked these episodes. 1000 years of courage was funny with all the banana people and the banana who was like a shady salesman. But the ending was wierd with the banana actually being a monkey and the gigantic gorilla. Family Business was good too, I liked the robber guy and all the names that he gave Courage, Muriel, and Eustace. The guy was pretty funny over all but i thought this episode was pretty gross with the army guys putting a finger in the Mount Rushmore guy's nose. Ewwww!!!!!! Anyway these two were both good episodes.moreless
