The best Cartoon Network show!
7 March 2003 | by 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!
