* Here's another one involving "The Mask". Where did Muriel supposedly being gluttonous come from? Sure, she's overweight, but throughout the series, she's never been portrayed as a BigEater (unlike her husband) and actually works to cook what she does eat. In the episode, we only see one instance of her secretly eating some cake that she probably worked to make, and which Eustace would probably have hogged to himself if she hadn't done it without him in the room, yet suddenly she's paranoid about her weight, despite [[PetTheDog Eustace's reassurance]], and by the end of the episode she's supposedly decided to cut back on sweets. It's a sort of development that would work if it didn't sort of come out of nowhere.

** Skills-in particular those requiring developing specific neuromuscular (which is often inaccurately referred to as muscle memory) that require specific movements-tend to be the on part of the human brain that degrades the last. This is specifically true if the skillset involved was one that requires a lot of mind-body coordination and agility to perform. There are stories of elderly people with dementia who suddenly stand up from their chair and start dancing in the public areas of the rest homes a style they once did frequently in their youth. And with incredible finesse and grace as though they had been preparing for a live performance for weeks. I heard of an incident of an ex-wrestler who killed his housemate unintentionally because his brain system still remembered the techniques and did it automatically when the other elderly touched him in a certain manner. People with sevre brain damage and extremely bad cases of amnesia still remember basic functions such as eating food with a spoon even if they have degraded to the point of retardation and disabled. So Muriel remembering how to play an instrument is not unrealistic at all. Especially since she played a string instrument which requires a hell lot of hand-midn coordination and speedy flexible movements than most activities.

* A minor headscratcher, but in "Dr. Le Quack, Amnesia Specialist", how was Murial still able to know how to play the sitar after losing her memory?

** Is "1,000 Years of Courage" even canon (in the future)? At the end of the episode, the Bagges' are transported back to the exact time and place they were when it began. This time, no meteor hits, and whatever exists 1,000 years in the future could be completely different.

** At the end of "The Clutching Foot," after Courage defeats the Foot, [[ItMakesSenseInContext his tongue gets infected.]] Possibly, when Courage went to cure his tongue ([[UnexplainedRecovery however he did it]]), he accidentally spread the fungus to someone else. Hopefully, an AssholeVictim.

* Why did Le Quack disappear after the halftime show in Ball of Revenge? It seems strange that they would make a big a mistake as forgetting to draw one of the villans suddenly.

** I can't help but wonder if one of the creators [[CreatorsPet took too much of a liking to him]] and didn't want him to die. But if you want an in-universe reason, maybe he was just GenreSavvy enough to realize that it wouldn't end well and slipped away, just like he does when escaping from prison.
* What's up with the Great Fusilli's fear of ghosts? I guess it was intended as a reference to The Phantom of the Opera or something, but InUniverse, it seems very contrived.
* Many episodes are parodies of horror movies. But there are some characters that I can't tell if they're parodies or not. Let's see here... Dr. Gerbil, Le Quack, Schwick, and the Stitch Sisters. Are these characters based on other characters? (Feel free to add more characters to the list if you think of any.)
