** Doesn't just look like - this is ''exactly'' how cults operate in reality.
*** 1) Make the club / group look important to join to your victim.
*** 2) Alienate the victim from their loved ones in favor of your cult.
*** 3) Physically separate said victim from everything except the cult.
*** 4) Constantly reinforce the cult's mantra until they're fully brainwashed. ("Weave, Believe, Belong!")

* Fred's flashbacks on his pet hamster and girlfriend being shaved by him also have a very creepy tone to them, mainly due to the [[CreepyChangingPainting sudden changes to angry expressions in their portraits]] and the musical stings.

[[folder: The Fog of Courage]]
* If you thought the show was already creepy in 2D, try picturing it entirely in CGI. First of all, the antagonist of the episode is a Fog spirit who descends upon the Bagge Farm just because Eustace won't return the necklace that belonged to the Fog's lover. The Fog spirit definitely came from the Uncanny Valley, It has a giant face with bulging eyes and misplaced teeth and all it ever says is chanting the name of his lost love ''Cariaaaanaaaa, Cariaaaaaaanaaaaa'', and it's even creepier when it sprouts ARMS and starts walking with them. By far, the creepiest scene in the episode is where the Fog goes into a rage when Eustace refuses to return the necklace unless the Fog makes him an offer. Upon hearing this, the Fog becomes so angry that it opens its GIANT MOUTH, makes a hissing sound and creates an impending storm that completely surrounds Eustace and Courage.

** However, not all kids were frightened by him; in fact, some people who grew up watching the show say that he was their favorite character.



** On the other hand, the [[LoudOfWar really bad disco music]] in the second curse could be considered memorable for giving something of a MoodWhiplash to an otherwise terrifying episode.

* The scene in the episode "Courage the Fly" where Eustace is chasing Courage as a fly. At one point, he gets Muriel's face stuck with fly paper and physically ''tears it off''. When he puts it back, ''he puts her face back upside down''. Thank god for cartoon physics.

Although the climax of that episode, where Courage decides to become a monster as well and he fights Eustace in Paris, is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome and reminiscent of ''VideoGame/PrimalRage''.

** The elephant in the room here is the [[FanNickname Perfect Trumpet]] [[UncannyValley Thingy]], pictured above. This is most definitely the scariest thing to ever appear on the show. It's a downright bizarre hallucination of Eustace's broken bugle at the beginning of the episode... except it now sports [[NightmareFace a whispery, eerie human head]] ([[BodyHorror with the bugle's tube going directly through the top of it and out the other end]]).

Were you surprised at all? I mean, this show is f*cking terrifying.

WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog has a ton of freaky stuff in every episode, with some comedy to add a little NightmareRetardant in. However, some episodes tend to avoid the comedy angle, [[NightmareFuel and we end up getting these.]] In fact, these moments are so frightening that you may actually wonder why this show airs on the daily Creator/CartoonNetwork timeline instead of the Creator/AdultSwim timeline, which would actually fit there.
