TV’s most fearful — and cunning — doggie said goodbye to small screens more than 20 years ago. However, the iconic cartoon Courage the Cowardly Dog is still present in our nostalgic hearts.

Those who followed the animation closely have already done several eccentric questions, as well as creating crazy theories about her. After all, the series’ aesthetic, along with the bizarre events, suggests unusual stories.

Thinking about all this mystery, we decided to select eight curiosities of Courage the Cowardly Dog that you may not yet know. Check out!

1. Courage the Cowardly Dog almost won an Oscar

That’s what you just read! The cartoon, which was broadcast on Cartoon Network, almost won the golden statuette in the 1090s.

Due to the great success of the pilot episode — which we will discuss later — there was a nomination for Best Animated Short. However, one contestant got the better of it and ended up taking the Oscar.

2. Eustácio Bagge may be inspired by a serial killer

Well, folks… Eustácio’s strong personality may have been based on Ed Gain. The famous serial killer has already been the inspiration for several other horror stories, and it seems that this also happened in the drawing of the pink dog.

In fact, the cruelty and coldness of man are indications of this. We can’t say because series creator John R. Dilworth never made any statements about it.. However, when asked about fan theories, he didn’t deny it.

3. Subjects never addressed in other drawings

One of the great differences of this design is in the themes. As it is an animation aimed at children and teenagers, Courage the Cowardly Dog was and still is considered transformative for the time.

Subjects such as sexism and domestic violence were addressed in the seasons. Especially in the episode “The Mask”, where Kitty appears at the ranch and says that her friend Bunny is in an abusive relationship.

4. Theories say that Nowhere is located in Area 51

The mysterious Area 51 may be where Muriel and Eustacio’s ranch is located. In several chapters of the animation it is possible to see references to aliens. Even military personnel have been to the famous Nowhere.

For those who don’t know, there are peculiar stories about Area 51, located in the United States. Some say it is a place for experiments and studies on aliens., while others claim to be a military base. And you, which side are you on?

5. The pilot episode was a real success

As we said, Courage the Cowardly Dog almost took home an Oscar. And animation competed for the award with — nothing more, nothing less — the pilot episode.

Titled “The Voyage of the Space Chicken”, the video is available on YouTube and marked the history of the creator of the program, John R. Dilworth. The production takes less than 8 minutes, it’s quick to enjoy!

6. Courage the Cowardly Dog has connection with friends

The names Muriel and Eustácio were inspired by Chandler and Ross. That’s because the full name of the two in the comedy program is, respectively: Chandler Muriel Bing and Ross Estácio Geller. Curious, huh?

7. In 2012 a reboot animation was produced

The classic animation had signs of getting an entire reboot. However, we were only able to enjoy a new episode of the pink puppy on the small screens in 2012.

As early as 2018, there were rumors that the screenwriter would return with the origin story of Muriel and Eustácio. But it was just a false alarm.

8. Courage is a normal dog, afraid of reality

This is a fan theory, but like the others, it was never denied by the creator. The fact is that Courage is a fearful little dog, so he is afraid of normal events for us humans.

His view of life is different from ours, which causes a reaction variation when facing routine facts. That is, there are no monsters or dangerous situations, he just creates a fuss in his own head and fears future occurrences.
