Courage the Cowardly Dog

The Spirit of the Harvest Moon is a spirit from "The House of Discontent".


He was upset with Eustace and Muriel for not respecting their land and never giving an offering on the night of Harvest Moon, despite Eustace's insistence that the land is completely incapable of supporting life. Because of this, he casts a spell on the farm causing all sorts of strange events and then demands that their departure from the house. Following the refusal of Eustace and Muriel, the Spirit offers them ten minutes to grow a plant. When Eustace refuses to grow something, Muriel and the Spirit argue with him, calling him "stubborn" and "not a farmer", respectively. When the ten minutes is up, the Spirit raises the temperature to molten hot, which causes everything to melt. Courage grows a plant using Eustace's sweat. When the plant grows, The Spirit lowers the temperature back to normal and leaves with a cryptic message about how they grew more than just a plant. The Spirit was played by Peter Fernandez.

  • Although people on the web and BTVA have speculated that Fred Melamed played this character, it has been confirmed many times by John R. Dilworth that he's been played by Peter Fernandez as confirmed by an instagram post with Peter, Lionel Wilson, and Arnold Stang.
  • Additional confirmation can be placed to a Youtube Video of John R. Dilworth commentating on an old 1999 Press Release Picture of the cast and crew of Courage, where he was trying to guess who was who in the picture.
