One of the most interesting and disturbing cartoons ever.
21 June 2003 | by (Panhandle Texas) – See all my reviews

Since Cartoon Network had been on, I had taken note of its shows, but I never considered watching them. I didn't think much of their shows when passing through them to get from one channel to the next, but when I sat down and saw "Courage the Cowardly Dog", I was amazed. I easily became addicted to watching the shows (and even staying up until 3:00 in the morning just to see the rerun of the prime time episodes again). Essentially, the show is about a dog named Courage who is adopted as a puppy by an elderly woman (most likely in her fifties or sixties) named Muriel, who is married to an equally aged man named Eustace Bagg. Muriel is kind-hearted and compassionate, but Eustace is selfish and inconsiderate (most of the time). They live in the middle of Nowhere, which is an actual place (with a city a few miles away by the same name). Strange events plague Courage's family, and since Muriel and Eustace don't have enough wisdom or sense to recognize these events, Courage has to save them from whatever is happening. Along with Johnny Bravo, I'm surprised to see this on Cartoon Network. The elements of the shows are very cartoony yet disturbing. While I've never put my finger on it, my brother has the idea that it could be the music. Whatever it is, the show is great.
