Does anyone remember the show Courage: the Cowardly Dog? Y’know like…the show that probably fudged a lot of kids up when they were younger cause of it s horror elements (like me)? XD
welllll I just woke up from having a dream that Cartoon Network was making a reboot of the show.
It was called Courage! For REAL! And it was…Interesting, to say the least…
It was literally almost nothing at all like the original. It had a animation style almost identical to Teen Titans Go!, and had next to no horror aspects. Some aspects were similar, like how Courage rarely talked extendedly or how Muriel and Eustace almost never notice the shenanigans happening around them, and a l o t of characters from the old show were there, but that’s where it ended.
Muriel and Eustace weren’t even married. Eustace was some kind of museum security guard who was in love with a absolutely clueless regular visitor, Muriel, who for some reason was an aspiring artist. I specifically remember that one of the running gags in the show was Courage trying to stop Eustace’s advances.
Most of the villains in the show were…just that. Villains. They weren’t scary, they were just…cheesy one-liner villains. Courage even had these weird animal friends that I can’t even remember the faces of, who would sometimes help in his adventures.
Even the commercial for the show was weird. It basically was just like the original Courage opening but like this: “We Interupt this Program, to bring you; a brand new show! Courage! For REAL!“
It was just…a sterilized cookie cutter version of the show more than anything else. Idk even know where this came from, but the more I think about the dream, the more I just think “boy…that actually sounds like something CN would make”
