"Windmill Vandals" is part two of the third episode in Season Four of Courage the Cowardly Dog, written by Bill Marsilii. It aired September 20, 2002.

Plot

When the Bagge's windmill stops turning, four undead vandals attack everyone in the homestead. Courage finds out that they are attacking them because 250 years ago, the first owner of the Bagge's farm built the windmill at a time others depended on water wheels...run by the vandals. When the water dried out, the farmer was the only one with a working mill. The vandals despised him, but he kept them at bay by carving magical symbols on the blades of his windmill wheel. Legend says if the windmill ever stops turning, the vandals will return and seek vengeance on all who possess it. Now, Courage, Muriel and Eustace have to fix the windmill and get it running again before the vandals' revenge is fully carried out.

Trivia

  • This is one of the few episodes where both Eustace and Muriel are fully aware of the threat/antagonists and work together with Courage to defeat it.
  • This is one of the few episodes in which Eustace was successfully able to contribute to the antagonists' defeat. (Without him, the windmill would have never been fixed, and the Windmill Vandals would have never been defeated.)
  • The Vandals only seem to attack the Bagges because they are living at the farmhouse.
  • When the Vandals show up at the farmhouse, they resemble Swayzak from Toonami; this episode aired on the final day of the Trapped in Hyperspace event Swayzak appeared in, as well as when the final level of the tie-in game, wherein TOM was infected by Swayzak, was put online.
