  • An outstanding way to end Courage

    Both episodes were very great endings: "Rembrance from Courage Past" is very heartbreaking and "Perfect" is okay. Anyways, both of these episodes were very good series finales, along with "Ball of Revenge".
  • series classic...

    "Rememberence of Courage Past" is my most favorite of the two. In this ep we learn what happened to Courage's parents. It was a very well written ep. I loved the flashback parts(Courage was so cute when he was a pup^^). This was the perfect ending to an awsome show=D final grade:A+++

    "Perfect" is also a great ep, but not as great as "Rememberence of Courage Past." It's about how Courage isn't perfect & some lady tries to make him perfect(like making Courage brush his teeth perfectly), but he always messes up. The dreams that Courage had in this ep were cool(although, the part with that creepy looking blue dude was kinda freakyo.O)

    final grade:Amoreless
  • Great!

    Even though I would like this show to be on still, I like the finale. I wish Perfect aired first and then Remembrance of Courage Past, because I like Remembrance a lot. It has a series finale type feel to it because it is about Courage's life and why he was "abandoned" as a pup. But I am still very happy and content with these two episodes and I consider them both fantastic series finales to a great show on Cartoon Network. They both get an A+ to them, but Perfect is a little bit weaker. Still overall great episodesmoreless
  • What a good way to end a good show. I'll miss Courage.

    Remembrance of Courage Past This Episode was cute and sad at the same time. Courage, enjoying chicken dumplings, sees a "have you seen me?" on a milk carton, featuring lost dogs. Courage then is reminded of memories of being stuck in a fence and having to go to a vet. The animation hit the right note to the tone. Childhood memories look good and crayon, and Courage was such a cute little puppy! But then, everything starts to change. The (creepy) vet asks Courages parents to come with him for a moment, and Courage grows worry after hearing screams of "help us!". Courage goes to the rescue, trying to save his folks from being put inside a rocket, as test subjects for a sinister plan to make dogs in space super strong. It was too late, and poor courage is now faced to the vet again after zoning out on memories. The vet takes courage away, the Muriel and Eustace, but Courage screams into the vets ears rather funily and the vet is sent into space. He got what he deserved and it was ended with how Muriel found Courage. Perfect This Ep was simple, Courage was messing things up and constantly called imperfect by Eustace, causing a horrible teacher to show up and try to make him perfect. He then gets nightmares ( the first one was absolutly horrifying though! Aaaah!) and learns to be perfect the was he is, by a fish. Cute ep!moreless
  • Among my favorite episodes. Both of them get 10/10s.

    Rememberence of Courage Past is an all around classic. Story of Courage's parents and how he and Muriel found eachother. So sad and so beautiful. Besides the obvious sad parts involving the flashbacks and Courage's parents, a personal favorite part of mine about this episode was how much Muriel desperately wanted to save Courage. It's very rare where Muriel is the one to try to save Courage and it was just so touching for me. I love this episode 10/10. Perfect was beautiful too! I don't know why a few other people have said they don't like it! It was just so beautiful. Seeing Courage strive for perfection was so sad and the cruel teacher was such a great villain. And the episode even had a great lesson to it! I loved when Courage stopped striving for perfection. Two classic episodes in one. So much to love. 10/10 for both of them.moreless
