Media of Origin: Courage the Cowardly Dog


Eustace Bagge is one of the three main characters in the Cartoon Network series, Courage the Cowardly Dog. He is Muriel's husband and an elderly, skinny, jaded, disgruntled, cynical, greedy, hard-working American man who is interested in money and obsessed with his truck. Eustace is also the current owner of the farmhouse, which was previously owned by his now-deceased brother Horst. Eustace wears glasses identical in appearance to Muriel's, and his brown hat shields his bald head. Eustace often refers to Courage simply as "Dog" and rarely addresses him by name. Eustace is commonly the subject of an unpleasant ending, whether it being a backfire of his get-rich-quick scheme or the villain of the episode going after him, or better yet, getting his comeuppance at the end, often in quite brutal or fatal ways.

Lionel Wilson originally voiced the character, but left midway through the third season (and eventually died five months after the show ended) and was replaced by Arthur Anderson. In the 2014 short titled The Fog of Courage, Wallace Shawn replaced Anderson as the voice of Eustace.

Intentional Bad Qualities

  1. He is malicious, nasty, and ill-tempered throughout the show. It even seems as though he cannot comprehend good.
  2. He loves to torture Courage by mistreating him and scaring him, he usually calls him a stupid dog and rarely calls him by his actual name.
  3. He regularly demeans Muriel as well.
    • In Dr. Le Quack, Amnesia Specialist, Muriel develops amnesia and Eustace takes advantage of this by simply convincing her that she is a "slave woman", making her do all the chores and cooking around the house.
  4. He is completely oblivious as to what he does wrong, as such when he constantly asks what he did when he is punished by Muriel.
  5. He is jealous of Courage just because he receives more attention from Muriel.
    • Speaking of jealousy, he re-united all his enemies and tried to kill Courage in the Season 4 episode Ball of Revenge, the same episode where Eustace himself is fully flanderized into his absolute worst.
  6. That stupid mask, though sometimes it’s funny if used correctly.
  7. His greed not only makes HIM look bad but often leads to his own downfall.
  8. He is just plain stubborn.

Good Qualities

  1. He can be funny and has very memorable quotes, such as "Stupid dog", "Ooga Booga Booga!", "What did I do?", "What's huh?", "Get away from me!", "Muriel, where’s my dinner?!", and "No sir! Not getting out of this chair!"
  2. He helped Courage out on several occasions.
  3. In the Season 4 episode The Mask, he admitted his flaws to Muriel.
  4. His cruel personality is only because of how his mother Ma and brother Horst treated him, respectively calling him "Stupid Boy" and "Useless". In addition, Eustace was once nice back when he was a child.
  5. Eustace usually gets his comeuppance at the end of each episode when he's an antagonist.
  6. He does sometimes show that he cares about Muriel, as evidenced by his concern for her well-being in a few episodes.
    • In Katz Kandy, he scares away Katz's jam monster with his mask and helps Muriel when she is in danger of being made into candy.
  7. Courage the Cowardly Dog would likely not be as great as it is without him.
  8. Since he is a hate sink making him unlikable was intentional.

Trivia

  • Eustace is one of three characters (the others being Courage and Muriel) to appear in nearly every episode. Cajun Granny Stew is the only episode Eustace does not appear in.
  • During Anderson's time in the role, many of Eustace's catchphrases that were originally voiced by Wilson were reused as stock audio. Such phrases include "Stupid Dog!", "What's, huh?", and his laughs.
