Courage The Cowardly Dog: Frightening & Instructive Series About Childhood Fears
We like to remind people of the transience of time. So today we are going to scare you a little. The cartoon Courage The Cowardly Dog turns 25 this year on February 18. Do you understand? Twenty-five years!
For many children, this cartoon was scary more than amusing. And there are obvious reasons for this. Now this cartoon began to be disassembled into memes and people gave Courage The Cowardly Dog meme a second life.
Who Created Courage the Cowardly Dog?
Back in 1995, American kids on New Year's Eve showed a pilot episode of a cartoon about a strange dog. Nobody expected the interest to be so strong. And after 4 years, the Cartoon Network TV channel finally showed the first episode of the animated series called A Night at the Katz Motel. A horror comedy that was eventually nominated for an Academy Award. An unknown John Dilworth created it. He wrote the script himself, drew and directed it himself. And outwardly, he reminds me in some way of our hero, to be honest, compare.
But who voices Courage The Cowardly Dog? It was Marty Grabstein. The cartoon's slogan is also funny. “Shake, Courage … Shake.”
What Is This Cartoon About?
There is a town called Nowhere. Grandma and grandpa live in it. They find a cute dog and take to live with them, and find out he is afraid of everything to madness, but it also turns out he is the only one who can save them from the constant misfortune hiding in all corners. If you are wondering what kind of dog is Courage The Cowardly Dog is, I will let you know he is a beagle dog. And although all the viewers understood that everything would be fine at the end of the cartoon, each episode raised to fear and made them think that everything would end badly right now.
And another good difference between this series and many others is its integrity and completeness. This story really has a beginning and an end. The first thing I ask you to draw your attention to is that each episode is the victory of the doggie not just over the next monster, but over fear. Courage The Cowardly Dog episodes have a different one. Fear of kidnapping, ghosts, darkness, parental relationships, bites, disease, the dead, robots, stones, teenagers, doctors, and even love. This is one of the real charms of this cartoon.
The Hidden Meaning and Integrity of the Cartoon
So, about integrity. We know that Courage was found, but how did he get lost in the first place? What happened? Although many extraneous lines were revealed to us by the plot, we received an answer to the main question at the very end. The episode is really sad, strong, and amazing.
But this is not the last episode in the final 4 seasons, if anything. The latter is about something completely different, and this is fantastic. It is called How to Become Better. Courage The Cowardly Dog real story, painfully familiar to all of us. You are young, inexperienced, but ambitious. But in fact, everything that you undertake simply breaks down and does not work out. So it is with Courage. He cannot tinker, walk evenly, cook, and even express tongue twisters. He even managed to fail a banal task – getting enough sleep.

Why Was Courage the Cowardly Dog Canceled?
Interestingly, the animated series was supposed to have a sequel, but the company did not give the go-ahead. Moreover, they were not even allowed to shoot a full-length movie. And it would have looked very cool! Yes, in some places the art was really disgusting, and the monsters were too scary, but again, for someone else.
One hundred and two episodes, each about 11 minutes. That is, you would spend a little more than 18 hours on the entire cartoon. Looks intimidating? How much time does a child spend fighting their fears? Much more. Trust me. Tell yourself, your friend or your child this banal but important phrase from the last series: “There are no ideal creatures in the world, my friend. You are good the way you are…”
