Storyline

Courage the Cowardly Dog follows the story of the life of a little pink cowardly dog who was named Courage when he was found by Muriel. When he was a baby, one of his vet appointments ended being the last time he saw his dog parents. During that day, while the yet made baby Courage wait in the waiting room, he sent his parents up into space. Then Courage ended up on the streets. Afterwards, a lady named Muriel found Courage and took him home to her home in the middle of Nowhere, Kansas, with her mean, rude, and cranky husband, Eustace Bagge. Courage is always on the watch since creepy, scary, and paranormal events happen in Nowhere, but Courage is always ready to save Muriel and kick some villain, monster, alien, or zombie butts! GO COURAGE! Written by CourageBagge <courage1999@bellsouth.net>

Irony, simpleness, and unexpectedness makes this a decent show.
11 August 2003 | by (Gettysburg, PA) – See all my reviews

From battling ancient spirits to saving Muriel from an opera-singing sea serpent, Courage delivers an unexpected bit of fun for kids and kids at heart. Sometimes the simple show (which varies little as far as structure goes) delivers social commentary (where else do we see a computer as quick to judge as the Baggs's?) and simple messages for those who need to be reminded (and those who don't)... Personally, I like Courage in the time when so many "Cartoon Cartoons" are weaker or simply less fun to watch. Whatever happened to Sheep in the Big City? Why take that off and show Time Squad instead? At least Courage can speak to different ages and show people that sometimes it's not how you feel that matters but what you will do to save those you love...
