King Ramses: The scariest yet most entertaining episode of Courage
30 July 2010 | by bearfaceproductionsSee all my reviews

Back when I was a child, I was too scared to see this episode. King Ramses was presented with a different animation than the one used for the other villains in the series. The eerie voice and physical appearance made the King Ramses episode stand out from the others. Today, I watch king ramses with no fear of him,though I still find him creepy. I came to realize that it was one of the funniest episodes also.

As for the "Clutching foot" it was also funny. Representing the 1970's typical gangster slang. Also the ending was a bit twisted and comical.

But no episode will catch enough interest, like the one "King Ramses Curse" got. Not even "house of discontent"
