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.
A good show for those wishing to recall low-budget cartoons which aired for a week in 1973...
As with all of Channel 4's numerous 'Top 100s' you really should read it as 'A hundred, generally good cartoons'. Otherwise the viewer will be sorely confused when top-notch computer animated films such as 'A Bug's Life' are upstaged by nonsensical Japanimation of indiscernible quality. Overall, you have to give the show its dues, The Simpsons did cap it all off, as it should. Plus it managed to give valuable airtime to Z-List quasi-celebrities. I'll leave it up to you to decide who I'm referring to. Jimmy Carr, England's latest comic talent, does not exactly send viewers laughing away on a tugboat of hilarity, but still has the odd spark of genius. I challenge any viewer to watch this and not want to give the 'Top 100' animation a good kicking after two hours of repetitive variations.
