Courage the Cowardly Dog

The Tiger is a large mammal that was featured in the Season 4 episode "Squatting Tiger, Hidden Dog." The tiger shown in the episode appears to be a large Sumatran Tiger or a large Bengal Tiger, which both live in Asia. However, this tiger could also be a South China tiger, which are local to southeastern China.

Appearance[]

In the animals first appearance throughout the episode, the Tiger is shown biting a small child's shirt, enabling him to easily carry the kid. Courage's 1st lesson that is given by the Soup Shop Owner is to defeat the tiger and save the child. Courage runs near the large mammal and dumps his bowl of soup all over himself to attract the tiger. He also places a slice of pineapple on top of this head and pours spinach all over his body. Finally, he gently places a cherry on the piece of pineapple. Courage's plan works, as the smell attracts the attention of the tiger. The tiger tells the kid to "Beat it", due to Courage seeming more appealing. The Tiger then chomps down and Courage, with the dog screaming in fear. Courage is then shown being squished in the tiger's mouth. The owner of the soup shop tells Courage to concentrate on peaceful images. He begins to think about Muriel sitting in her rocking chair, as his body turns to water and slides out of the tiger's mouth. Suddenly, a group of villagers pick up the tiger and throw him in a large cage.

The Tiger is seen again at the end of the episode, sitting on the Great Wall of China. As he is laying down, he is simultaneously chomping down on the bones of Eustace's legs. The Tiger then snarls at a disgruntled looking Eustace. The Tiger begins to smile and say "Yeah, Magical", responding to Muriel's comment about China being magical. The episode then ends with the tiger faintly laughing and the iris closing on him.
