Interesting facts

  • Lionel G. Wilson (Eustace) quit halfway through the series and was replaced by Arthur Anderson.
  • Peter Fernandez had his face videotaped and inserted into animation for two episodes: “House of Discontent” (floating head) and “The Magic Tree of Nowhere” (the Tree).
  • Courage’s dialogue decreased after the first season. This is because the creators at Cartoon Network thought Courage “talked too much” and wanted his dialogue cut short.
  • John Dilworth finally agreed to do a Courage series, and Cartoon Network originally wanted him to produce it from their Hanna-Barbera studio in L.A.. But Dilworth didn’t want to leave his company Stretch Films in New York, so CN agreed to let him do the series from Stretch Films.
  • The original season 2 finale “The Tower of Dr. Zalost” didn’t air until after the season 3 premiere “Muriel Meets her Match”/”Courage Vs. Mecha-Courage” aired.
  • Courage lasted for only 4 seasons, 52 episodes, and 13 episodes per season. Season 1 aired November 12, 1999 and ended June 29, 2000. Season 2 aired October 31, 2000 (had a 3 month hiatus between episodes 22 and 23) and ended January 11, 2002. Season 3 aired November 16, 2001 and ended July 9, 2002. Season 4 aired September 7, 2002 and ended November 22, 2002.
  • A number of character designs (such as the Ship captain/Policeman) were reused. Often the only change was different hair color.
  • The names Muriel and Eustace are taken from the middle names of Chandler Bing and Ross Geller of Friends.
  • Throughout the series, the word DIL is somewhere in the background, after the creator John Dilworth.
  • Tim Chi Ly, who voices the recurring character Di Lung, was one of the show’s animators.
  • This was the last series that veteran voice actress Billie Lou Watt worked on.
  • This was voice director Peter Fernandez’s favourite show that he worked on.
  • Series creator John Dilworth placed major emphasis on audio effects: he wanted to use unconventional fresh music/sounds, in contrast to most shows developing stock material to use throughout their run. Dilworth wished to put any music/sound into the episode that emphasized the situation, whether it was tense, exciting or especially funny.
  • Whenever Courage takes action to rescue his owner(s) from peril, a variation of the Mission: Impossible theme is heard playing. This theme varies with each episode, depending on what musical arrangement is being used in that episode.
