** 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.)

* I always found it odd that the mummy in "Courage Meets the Mummy" was Mayan. Was mummification ever a thing in Mayan culture? I can't find any information on it. I don't see why they didn't just make it Egyptian considering that's what most people think of when they hear the word "mummy."

** According to the episode "The House of Discontent", they (or at least Eustace) lived there for almost their entire lives.


Added DiffLines:

** He is actually referred to as that on the show and in a few episode titles, as well as all Netflix episode summaries for the first two seasons aside from "A Night at the Katz Motel".

** Characters got reused all the time, like Frith the mustached [[WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs mayor/cop/pilot/general]]. Also, a banana man is not exactly out of place in the current time period considering all the kinds of weird people that already exist there.

* Why does (or what made) Eustace hate Courage so much? Granted he's a jerk to everyone, but he seems to despise the "stupid dog" with a passion. You'd think after Muriel whacked him so many times he'd calm down.

** Easy target, most likely. Eustace will be a jerk to anyone for no reason at all, even beings he should rightly avoid from just a glance and these encounters always go badly. Courage just happens to be feeble and too cowardly to protest Eustace's treatment.
