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!

One of the great Cartoon Network shows...
31 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Along with Dexter's Laboratory, this is the show that has kept me watching Cartoon Network, even when they put dribble like "Totally Spies" on.

This series, although having a few 'flat' episodes, is a great example of a well made cartoon. Rarely do you hear the same music twice (which has, on numerous occasions destroyed other series where you hear the same stuff over again over numerous seasons), the voice acting is always great (from the main characters to Mr. Katz and the Goose God), the animation is great (the varied reactions they give Courage is worth watching for alone) and the stories are always unique, even when they're not up to the series standard bar (which is pretty darn high, IMO).

Ultimately, the series is a culmination of so many excellent factors, with the most important being the way that it can be scary but not so much that you can't let kids watch it. It's the perfect black humor cartoon for kids and adults that I wish was out on DVD, as I'd buy it in an instant.

My personal favorite episodes are "The Chicken From Outer Space", "Revenge of the Chicken From Outer Space", "King Ramses' Curse" and "The Gods Must Be Goosey". I am very glad that they're currently re-showing this on Cartoon Network, because if you haven't seen it, you deserve to.
