Spooktober: Courage the Cowardly Dog (1999)

It seemed only appropriate that Cartoon Network, marking the 30th anniversary of Scooby-Doo, added a smaller canine who was even more of a chicken than Scooby!

Courage the Cowardly Dog debuted on World Premiere Toons (aka The What a Cartoon Show) 3 years earlier, and the debut short, "The Chicken From Outer Space", was also released in theatres and nominated for an Academy Award. The series bowed in 1999, lasted 4 "seasons", but 3 years total, and is in reruns on CN & Boomerang (check listings). Veteran voice actor Lionel Wilson (ex-Mighty Heroes) voiced Eustace.

Here's the open & close:

Silly, repetitive (naturally), but dull.

Rating: C+.
