The Computer is the Bagge family's desktop computer residing in the attic, which Courage regularly uses to solve problems or gain information. It is an artificial intelligence and has had a large number of appearances, varying from a faithful ally to the main antagonist. It speaks with a British accent.

Personality

Armed with wit and a full hard drive of knowledge, it is a box of sarcasm and pride. The computer believes that lack of emotion makes machines dominant over humans, and finds them cowardly. However, after its experience in a body, it has shown to be capable of fear, though it denies it. Consulted with Courage's problems, it often refers to him as a "twit" and includes plenty of cynicism in its explanations. He is replaced with a chalkboard in Perfect, as well as a spaceship in Mission to the Sun.

Trivia

  • Computer appears in every single season of the show. He also appears in The Fog of Courage, the 2014 CGI special.
  • Throughout the series, Computer's monitor varies, although it could be unintentional.
  • In the episode Little Muriel, Computer mentions that he likes Sri Lankan Chicken Tandoori.
  • As stated in an interview between John R. Dilworth and RebelTaxi, Computer was based off of HAL 9000 from 2001 Space Odyssey.
    • With the British accent, he shares a few similarities with Sara from Cartoon Network's programming block Toonami, who is also an artificial intelligence. However, Sara debuted a year after Computer did (but her voice was heard in the opening to Toonami saying "hello" ever since TOM 1's debut) and Sara is much more friendlier than Computer is.
  • His Japanese voice actor is Masayuki Nakada (中田雅之) who also did the voices of Katz, the Lieutenant, and Freaky Fred, among others.
    • In the Japanese dub, his catchphrase "You twit" has been translated to "アホですね" (Aho desu ne), which means "It's foolish, isn't it?"
