Courage the Cowardly Dog

A Goldfish is a small fish that is known to be owned by humans. This sea creature was seen in multiple episodes of Courage the Cowardly Dog.

One Goldfish only appears in the Season 3 episode, "Fishy Business." The fish has a red body, orange fins, blue, black and yellow eyes, along with purple eyelids. The sea creature resides in a small bowl that is placed on a coffee table within the Bagge's farmhouse.

Another Goldfish is seen in "Night of the Scarecrow." The fish is seen when Courage is holding a bag that contains the animal.


Fishy Business[]

At the beginning of "Fishy Business", Courage tries to train his Goldfish to perform tricks. The dog angrily taps the fish's tank with a hoop, which he wants the creature to jump through. Though, the disgruntled fish just looks at Courage with a blank stare and swims away. Then, Muriel brings out a plate of sushi, and when Courage grabs a piece of the snack, the goldfish gasps, due to sushi being made out of fish. This causes Courage to put the food back on the tray. After this, Courage continues to pester the fish, tapping on the glass with his hoop and peering into the tank. As he is staring at the creature, a large purple fish can be seen through the bowl. Courage screams in terror and tries to get Eustace's attention, but to no avail, as the farmer scares Courage with his mask, making the dog fly into the air and crash into the fish bowl.

After the Fishionary takes the unknowing Courage, Muriel and Eustace to her underwater courthouse, the Goldfish hops out of his tank towards the sushi plate. Once assured that the coast is clear, he brandishes a pair of chopsticks and begins eating the sushi, whilst crazily smiling.

During the last scene of the episode, the camera pans toward the Goldfish inside the farmhouse, as the creature bizarrely laughs with the iris closing on him.

Night of the Scarecrow[]

A Goldfish appears again, in "Night of the Scarecrow." When Courage, Muriel and Eustace are walking out of the county fair, a purple goldfish can be seen in a plastic bag that Courage is holding. The Goldfish can also be seen multiple times in Eustace's truck while the trio is driving through a cornfield.
