These concepts are a bit too mature for toddlers and kids below 5 years and have story plots that cover many episodes and have ‘ arcs ‘( a term that signifies a certain event or problem that will eventually or not be fixed that prolongs episodes)And then there is the completely different topic Anime, of which I'm a HUGE fan of.
Anime is a Japanese art style and method of storytelling that is aimed at an adult audience, although there are a few that can be for a whole family.
The show’s villains concocted elaborate plots, backed with abundant resources and driven by compelling motives.
Courage was just a scared dog, the exact opposite personality-wise of most typical children’s TV protagonists, who inspire confidence and remain composed while facing danger.
In most entertainment meant for kids, you know that the hero will overcome all obstacles, evil will be vanquished and things will go back to how they should be.
When watching Courage, on the other hand, I would get an overwhelming premonition that the worst might actually happen. In an especially jarring episode, a villain turns Eustace and Muriel into inanimate puppets, and Courage is forced to cope by moving the strings and ventriloquizing what he remembers of their personalities.
One moment I would be enjoying the mindless buffoonery of “Ed, Edd n Eddy,” and the next I would hear the familiar refrain: “We interrupt this program to bring you...
Courage the Cowardly Dog Show, starring Courage, the Cowardly Dog!
Instead, he endures Eustace’s constant verbal abuse, as well as an onslaught of supernatural creatures that won’t leave him alone.
What made the horror of “Courage the Cowardly Dog” so terrifying was the sense of open-ended possibility which accompanied each misadventure.
