  • Good pilot episode.

    Anyway, the story begins with a mouse. Courage gets afraid. Muriel carries the mouse outside while Eustace scares Courage with his 'Ooga Booga Booga' mask. Courage runs outside and soon notices a UFO landing on their backyard. A chicken exits the UFO. Courage quickly runs inside to tell Muriel. When Muriel and Eustace go outside, nothing abnormal is in sight. Eustace, again, scares Courage with his mask, Muriel hits Eustace, and Courage runs to hide behind the chicken coop. When Courage hears noises from the chicken coop, he enters it and sees the alien chicken killing all the other chickens. Courage carries Muriel to the coop for her to see, but no chickens are visible except the alien chicken. Muriel, mistaking him for a normal chicken, collects his eggs (white with red dots). She exits. When Courage tries to exit the alien chicken locks the coop door. Courage tries other ways to exit and finally blows up the chicken coop. He runs, digs, and finds his sling. He hits the alien chicken. For a while, it appears he is dead. But he stands up.moreless
  • The first episode of Courage EVER MADE!

    I loved this episode! Courage sounded so weird at the end, but when Eustace turned into a chicken, I laughed hard. The chicken getting fried was also funny, but not really. Eustace gets killed, too! Meh, I don't really care about Eustace. I still think it was very funny how Courage just kills Eustace and demands Muriel to let him lay on her lap with her having her hand on her. This pilot episode was on "What A Cartoon" once, which is cool. Too bad it doesn't air anymore... "This shouldn't happen to a dog!" hehe. I wish this episode still aired on TV...moreless
  • This is the first episode of courage!

    I really like this episode even though ive only seen it like twice. I mean its a classic. cartoon network should put out dvds with their pilot episodes out too. or sell it on ebay. or at least put it on demand! but yeah in this episode I remember the chicken had a big gun and eustace was called the farmer ohh man they should at least put it on cartoon networks the cartoon cartoon show but ohh well they probley wont ever do that but hopefully they will. If they ever do some one please tell me. but other wise this is a really good episode.moreless
