  • 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
  • im here just to review the firt part. (spolier alerts) (sorry if my review is to long it is 456 words but its a great review.)

    the first part of this episode really should have been the whole episode. the second part was ok it was just courage trying to be perfect and relizing he was perfect the way he was. it wasn't a bad part but i still like the first part much better. im sorry if my memmory is a little shakey it's been a while since i've seen this episode. ok let me begin my review

    in this part of this episode is a flash back. sounds corny right? but it was great. and so sad. i and going to admit this. i cried a little.

    the flash back begins with courage and his paretns(his actual parents his birth parents) courage gets stuck in a gate and has to go to the vet. while there we meet a creepy vet. and takes courage parents to another room. when courage find them he see's they are in a rocket that is going to be sent to the moon for a experiment by the vet. courage trys to save his parents but fails and they are sent into space. courage escapes the vet and goes out side. he see's the rocket shooting up in the air. (sorry if i spell her name wrong) meriel comes along and says (i hope im right) "u must be a brave dog to be sitting out here all alone. why don't u come home with me. courage" (that should be about right) now in the present courage is acting strange(he is having flash backs from the vet) so merriel and eustice take courage to the vet. and we see the very same vet. the vet gets meriel and eustice in another room. when courage finds them he find that the vet has trapped them in the rocket as well. time is runing out and courage has to save them. in a way this is really courage last adventure(the perfect part was not a adventure)and the last time courage has to save eustice and merriel.

    courgae fortuanly saves them both and (this part i just love) traps the vet into the rocket. they return home and merriel says "i wonder what ever happened to that nasty old vet" courage growls at this.

    we see the rocked landing on the moon. and we see all these dogs that are really strong(the vets idea was to make dogs strong by sending them to the moon) we see courage parents and other dogs gathering around the vet. even though we do not see what happens to him i think we all can guess.

    in my honest opinion this is a perfect ending and my favorite courage episode

    r.i.p courage the cowardly dog along with all the rest of the classic cartoon net work shows.moreless
