This is one of the best cartoon series ever made. It's timeless and truly fun to watch. I'm ordering a copy, and so should everyone else who enjoys good storytelling.
P.S.- It's too bad all the negative reviews for a DIFFERENT DVD release are showing up here. Those are for the Australian release, not this one.
Onto the meat: the episodes. This is the full first season, 13 full episodes (so 26 sub-episodes) on 2 discs. The playtime is listed at 286 minutes. Again, there are no extras. It would have been nice to see at least the pilot, but we can hope for that to be included in the other seasons (which I dearly hope will be released as well). I'm just happy to have such classic Courage moments as Welcome to the Katz Motel, Freaky Fred, Shirley the Medium, The Hunchback of Nowhere, King Ramses' Curse, Little Muriel, and many others in my grasp. If that's what you're looking for too, you'll be pleased with this DVD set.
For those who are new to the series, it follows the adventures of Courage, a little dog with a big heart when it comes to his owner, the elderly Muriel (and her jerk of a husband, Eustace). They live in a little house in the middle of Nowhere, where, as the announcer in the opening of each episode states, "freeeaky stuff happens.Read more ›
Taking a close look at this show, you can tell the care that went into each episode. The animation itself is so simple and colorful, but done in such a unique way. They always knew how to shade everything perfectly to fit the mood. The music was spot on as well. They just happened to have a crew of people working on every aspect of the show that all really "got" what John R. Dilworth was aiming for. It was like a tight band. I'd also like to point out that episodes like "The Shadow of Courage" and "The Hunchback of Nowhere" are some of the most brilliantly written, touching pieces of animation I've ever seen. Not many shows can get away with being borderline gruesome one minute, and almost have you shedding a tear the next. This was a masterful series.Read more ›

|Way to merge reviews for DVDs from different regions Amazon||
The Aussie DVD is basically the same product, I think. The only reason it's rated so poorly is because people bought it without realizing that it's a Region 4 DVD. Really, you can't blame Amazon for merging reviews of the first season from different regions. If anything, blame the idiots who... Read More

|where is season 2 at?||
It doesn't look like it's coming. I'm tired of getting stuck with incomplete releases like this. The only Cartoon Network show that got put out in full was Powerpuff Girls. The rest of the shows apparently don't matter enough. I want the rest of Courage and Dexter's Lab, and I would also like to... Read More
