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!

Trivia

John Dilworth finally agreed to do a Courage series, and Cartoon Network originally wanted him to produce it from their Hanna-Barbera studio in L.A.. But Dilworth didn't want to leave his company Stretch Films in New York, so CN agreed to let him do the series from Stretch Films. See more »

Adult Appeal
21 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This series has adult appeal as the plots are sophisticated and intelligent and relaxing for the overworked adult and not very childish.

The stories are dark oriented but poke fun at all sorts of sources and subjects.

Generally the series ranks close to the Fox Network lineup of cartoon based shows but lacks nudity (I think!) and vulgarity so it has a universal "PG" rating like appeal. More like the Shrek movies.

There is good consistency amongst the writings and design that keeps it interesting and a long of tongue in cheek humor that adults would enjoy without any significant childish components typical in "children only" cartoons.

I'm sure everyone of every age would enjoy this series.
