S1E7 - Eustace's truck

Eustace's truck is the vehicle used by the Bagge family for transport, and is owned by Eustace. The truck has no official name or direct correspondence to any real-life vehicle, and is simply known as Eustace's Truck. Little is known about the vehicle, other than that it has been repaired many times by Eustace. Eustace spends a lot of his free time working on the truck, whether it's the horn or engine components. The truck seems to be of great importance to Eustace and it may be his most prized possession. In the episode "The Gods Must be Goosey", he is seen to be completely heartbroken over his loss of the truck to The Goose God, even going so far as to state that "he is nothing without his truck".

The truck can be seen parked outside of the Bagge Farm homestead in almost every episode. Usually Eustace is the one who drives the truck, but there has been rare occasions in which Courage drives it. Muriel is also seen driving it on one occasion, at the end of the episode "A Night at the Katz Motel".

Trivia[]

  • Although the truck does not seem to be directly based on any particular model, it does bare a slight resemblance to a 1928 Ford Model AA, a truck commonly used on farms in the Midwest. There are also similarities with the ZIS-5 and Autocar Dispatch SA.
  • It is possible that Eustace may have built the truck himself using parts from various vehicles, as the truck does not closely resemble any single real world truck, and many farmers actually used to do this in the early days of automobiles. This would also explain why he is so attached to the vehicle.
  • Despite Eustace regularly working on the truck, it seems to be in a rather poor state of repair, constantly making sputtering noises and backfiring when driven.
  • Just like Eustace, who often dies in comical ways on a regular basis, the truck has been badly damaged or destroyed on numerous occasions, but always returns fully repaired and unharmed in later episodes.
