Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • One of my favorite episodes

    I like 'The Shadow of Courage' because it's funny and hilarious. Eustace blamed Courage every time he hurt him when it was really Courage's shadow. My favorite was when Eustace broke the bedroom door by just walking through it. When he got in the bedroom, he strangled Courage, then Muriel hit him on the head with a rolling pin. She also made Eustace sleep in the attic, after Eustace made Courage sleep in the attic. After a while, Courage went downstairs to talk to a shadow. Then Courage and the shadow both went outside to talk a while. I have to close this review for now.moreless
  • This is a very special episode as it is the first episode of courage the cowardly dog i saw. This episode is one of my favourites.

    Dr Le Quack Amnesia specialist is a great episode to see of the marvelous Courage the cowardly dog show. The episode starts with typical Eustace bagge he is busy hammering away until a plank of wood flies up in the air and hits Muriel in the head. Muriel then doesent remember a thing so Eustace sees this as a opportunity to take advantage of her by making her cook,clean and wash in other words anything Eustace cant be bothered to do. Courage then calls who he thinks is a amnesia specialist but actually he is a thief. Dr Le Quack pretending to be an amnesia specialist comes to their house and immediately knocks poor old Eustace out and locks him in the cupboard. Dr Le Quack then stumbles across muriel with amnesia he tries to torture her into telling where La silverwere is but because she has amnesia she doesent know. Courage foils all of Le Quacks torture schemes and then avoiding Le Quack by hiding outside courage then re enters the house via catapult,ladders and a pole vault courage goes on his computer and alerts the police to come to his aid. yet again courage foils Le Quack\'s torture scheme but this time he cannot escape because Le Quack has boarded the door up Le Quack then attempts to vacuum courage up but he over fills the vacuum bag up and then it explodes. The police then arrive just in time and arrest Le Quack. Courage unties muriel and to his luck muriel doesent have amnesia but when they find Eustace he does. You then get to see that Le Quack has broken out of the police van he then turns to the camera and says You have not seen the last of Le Quack a great last line.moreless
