Courage, the Cowardly Dog

And we're back!

I headed back north in the Midwest during the recent holiday break and I returned with a clearer mind and found some serenity of life. One thing on my checklist wasn't accomplished, but it happens. Open, vast backyards - get one or find one. ;;)

Courage the Cowardly Dog
1999 Cartoon Network
13 Eps
(mildly dark) humor

When eerie events strike, Courage must protect his elderly owners, even if it's gonna scare him out of his mind, like always. 
Short words today because busy-ass testing day in most of my classes (okay, more like four)

 Low-flying production value does not interfere with the simple art designs and the underlying theme of pure-hearted loyalty. As an expression says, dogs are man's best friend. Maybe not in the case of Courage and the old man of the house, Eustace, but we all know he loves that "STUPID DOG!"

Simple script and the jokes run like The Simpsons -- actions speak for themselves.

Some days, I could use a nice pep talk
 It's nice to take a break from anything, to a moderate extent. Whoa, internet cables are under the ocean??!
