The Top Ten
1 King Ramses' Curse

Nice one, gave me nightmares for a very long time when I was 6 - 7 years old. This was plain terrifying until I was like 12. When I was 12, I realized it wasn't as scary, because it had terrible computer generated images.

This was a perfect combination of horror and comedy. King ramses was scary, the story was good, and it wasn't as mean spirited as other episodes (eustace). Freaky fred was like that, too

This thing gave me nightmares as a kid. But that's what made it so good.

This guy's funny. "Aw, come on"

2 Remembrance of Courage Past

A great origin story with intricate artwork.

A great backstory episode for Courage. Well done Courage, well done.

3 The Mask

To be honest, the only episode that sticks out in my memory other than Katz' theme. The surreal nature of the plot and the vibe and imagery Bunnys' apartment flat gives off was bitter-sweet. I find myself going back and re-watching this episode time and again.

This episode was the best because it was the darkest, most realistic episode in the entire series. I felt sorry for Kitty. I think we all would feel the same way if we ever lost our best friend like that.

This show was never afraid to tackle topics like the ones shown in this episode. And it always did them very respectfully. Hands-down my personal favourite of the series.

The realism of this episode is what made it so scary. Surprisingly, this episode actually made it past the censors.

4 A Night at the Katz Motel

The amazing pilot

5 Freaky Fred

The singing children part was creepy.

Fred is the best character.

This was a bravo

6 The Tower of Dr. Zalost

Awesome dark tone, excellent music, interesting plot, creative villain, wonderful action, a good resolution, and absolutely hilarious the whole way. This episode is just perfectly made.

7 Courage in the Big Stinkin' City

Courage endures memorably terrifying experiences on his journey

8 The Demon in the Mattress

This is with out a doubt the best parody of Exorcist I've ever seen. By far the best episode

9 The Last of the Starmakers

One of my favorite Courage episodes. Between the music and the plot of the mother squid going though so much to make sure her babies hatch and continue to make stars after shes gone is way too emotional. There was not a bad moment in this episode and that intro made me tear up.

Good episode, quite touching and I like how the monster of the week wasn't bad, just in need for her kids.

Cried like a newborn baby from the feels this episode gave me, that's all.

Good episode. I like how the baby squid got into space.

10 Perfect

This is the episode I remember the most. Funny thing is, I didn't even know I remembered it until after a terrible psychiatry session. I felt like Courage after that session.

Blue guy was weird but it helped the episode. So the sad cgi trumpet creature shows you ain't perfect. In the end of the episode, Courage learns from a fish that it's ok to not be perfect. The teacher was good too, in that she helped Courage realize what the fish said. Of course she's a good villain, giving us freaky stuff and saddening stuff. Courage gets over Eustace putting him down over the series' course and at the very end, we hear Courage laughing at the audience, and the fish giving a thumbs up. The series ends (unless the Fog of Courage counts) on a happy note with Courage mastering probably one of his biggest insecurities.

The first time I saw this episode, I didn't like it. ( Mainly because of that blue giygas abomination ) But as I watched it again, ( And skipped the trumpet scene ) this is really an a,aging episode. Courage is insulted by Eustace, and gets all worked up about it, just like many of us in real life. Courage makes himself a teacher to teach him how to be perfect. This monster is courage's insecurity about being perfect. He made this monster. And every time he messes up, even with Eustace not around, he gets stressed out and beats himself up about it. He starts getting nightmares all about it. At the last second of hope though, courage is motivated by... Um, a barracuda swimming in a bathtub? Despite how weird that sounds though, we get this quote. "There is no such thing as perfect, you're as beautiful as you are courage" When courage learns this, he shows his insecurities that he doesn't have to try to be perfect. He can just try as hard as he can to be him. It all ends with all three ...more

Terrible episode, except for the blue thing.

The Contenders
11 Queen of the Black Puddle

This is easily my favourite along with Courage in the Big Stinkin' City and Demon in the Mattress. Creepy, engaging, great for starters.

This episode is so freaky
Think about it a sea demon that eats men
Scary huh?

12 King of Flan
13 Windmill Vandals
14 House of Discontent

The scariest episode ever. Eustace, Muriel and Courage are haunted by the spirit of the harvest moon, a nightmarish live-action black-and-white disembodied head that commands the family to leave the farm. Gave us all nightmares as kids

Scary but awesome!

15 The Hunchback of Nowhere

The scene with the Hunchback telling Eustace he is bald was the best roast I've seen in a long time!

Teaches that beauty is on the inside more than the outside.

One of the best episodes

Actually liked this one.

16 Squatting Tiger, Hidden Dog
17 Invisible Muriel
18 The Clutching Foot
19 Little Muriel

Funniest episode by far

This one was hilarious!

20 Human Habitrail

Although not among the most scary episodes, this is definitely a classic.

21 Heads of Beef
22 Dome of Doom
23 The Quilt Club
24 The Chicken From Outer Space
25 The Great Fusilli
