User Reviews

One of the Best Animation Shows On Cartoon Network
16 January 2002 | by redfarmerSee all my reviews

Call me a softie but I just love Courage! His weekly exploits as he saves his owners from certain doom are just wonderful. The animation is terrific and the plots are funny and well written.

Anyone who dislikes this show has no sense of humor.

Oh, and if Johnny has five apples and Davey has four apples, why don't they just shut up and eat?

Stupid dog!
