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>

The best Cartoon Network show!
7 March 2003 | by (In da soudern states) – See all my reviews

Oh, man, this show rocks!!! Who could forget the crazy antics of Courage, and how he'd always scream in a different way each time (i.e. his guts fly apart, his eyes grow, he's cut in half) They would have like a different villian for every episode, and there were all kinds of crazy things like snowmen, the Sandman, Eustace as a pickle pirate(!) and such. I must say even Eustace has become likeable to me! He does show redeeming qualities in a few episodes ("Serphent Of Evil River", "The Mask"). I've liked some episodes so much I've even written down stories of them!

And Dootuss...If Scooby Doo is scarier than Courage, how come Scooby Doo is BRIBED into doing his bravery (by getting scooby snacks) and Courage does it because he loves his owners?! He's a LOT braver than Scooby-Doo! I also doubt SD could handle a giant fungus foot, or a little mind-controlling alien, or a crazed, emotionally disturbed goat.

Pure genius! I must say, when Arthur Anderson had to voice Eustace and Lionel Wilson quit, Eustace really lost his pizazz. But that doesn't stop me from liking everything else about the series!! My favorite episodes are "Human Habitrail" "Mission To The Sun" "King Ramses' Curse" "The Transplant" "The Tower Of Dr. Zhalost" "Mondo Magic" "Dome Of Doom" "Farmer-Hunter Farmer-Hunted", the list goes on! I rank this with "Pokemon" as one of my favorite cartoons!

Lint Lady: It's my lint!
