The offbeat adventures of Courage, a cowardly dog who must overcome his own fears to heroically defend his unknowing farmer owners from all kinds of dangers, paranormal events and menaces that appear around their land.
The series is centered around the exploits of two young children-the optimistic, dim-witted, and kindhearted Billy, and the dark, ill-tempered, sinister, and very intelligent Mandy.

This show is very entertaining and funny. Even episodes that aren't are still fun to watch. It's about these two kids (Billy and Mandy) who trick the Grim Reaper (or 'Death') to be their best friend.
There are a couple of problems. It sometimes seems like the show is trying too hard to make Billy seem dumb and Mandy can get a tad annoying with her clichéd 'dark' personality. Raven from Teen Titans has one too and she gets on my nerves as well. Still, people seem to like these type of characters.
Apart from that, this is a very good show. It's weird and sometimes creepy. The music isn't half bad either.
