Although I don't discredit this, I found that the thematics of courage the cowardly dog are more reminiscent of childhood psychology, especially toward abused and mentally ill children. Infact they were so inline I almost read the episodes as modern parables for dealing with childhood trauma. Childhood sexual abuse. He's impeccably reminiscent of the average child sexual predator. He's a family member Muriel's nephew who's charismatic, yet obviously not "right". He's trusted and he has a past history of being "naughty. This is the crucial lesson, sometimes parents aren't capable or willing to admit horrible things. In the end Two large nurses bust through the bathroom door and escort him to an insane asylum, courage is left with just a tuft of fur on his tail, Muriel is still in denial and Eustace is missing. The best thing you can do is get help from the authorities, even though you are assaulted you can make sure it never happens again. A damn fine and daring message I could understand as a child, but not articulate.
