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.
Did You Know?
Courage originated as a side-character called Hamilton in a grotesquely animated short called "Smart Talk with Raisin" that first aired as a segment in Liquid Television: Episode #3.1
(1994). The character was then completely reworked and renamed to star in The Chicken from Outer Space
(1996), which aired as What a Cartoon!: Courage the Cowardly Dog: The Chicken from Outer Space
(1996) and became the de facto pilot for the series, which was animated and written in the same fashion and tone. The Courage the Cowardly Dog short "The Fog of Courage," released in 2014, was a proposed CGI pilot for the revival of the show. It was designed and written in the same tone as the original show.

The end title of each episode evolved with each season. The first season has Courage holding up a scribbled end title card; the second and third seasons have an ornate sculpture of a bowing Courage; and the final season has a CGI Courage taking a bow. See more
