Courage the Cowardly Dog

The Hamster is a small mammal that played a minor role in the Season 3 episode "Curtain of Cruelty."

Appearance[]

After a mysterious, pink curtain-like beam turns the people of Nowhere into angry, demented savages, Muriel is taken away for showing signs of care, and is then sent to a rehabilitation center, where she will be brainwashed into thinking being nasty and miserable is the right and perfect way to live. After she is captured by multiple police officers, Muriel is seen in a dark room, where a hamster in shackles can be seen. A voice from an ill-tempered man is heard in the background, as the person is tempting Muriel to squash the Hamster with a nearby hammer. Muriel picks up the hammer and slams down the weapon right next to the creature, saying she doesn't want to hurt the animal.

After a beam reverses the effects of the cruelty curtain, turning everyone into loving and caring humans again, the Hamster is shown again during the last scene of the episode, where Eustace is sent to the same rehabilitation center to be turned into a nice person. The same ill-tempered man is heard again, and tells Eustace to pet the "cute, little hamster." Eustace groans and the Hamster races onto his shoulder and snuggles with him. Not for long though, as the Hamster grabs a hammer from behind his back and yells "LIKE THIS!" As the iris closes on the two, a bone cracking sound can be heard, with Eustace screaming in pain.
