* The Mask because it tackles the very mature subject of [[DomesticAbuse abusive relationships.]] A talking rabbit named Bunny ended up with an abusive, controlling, gangster asshole named Mad Dog and is not allowed to be with her best friend Kitty anymore. (It's also heavily implied that she and Kitty are romantically interested in each other.) This leads Kitty to believe that all dogs are evil. Now take that last sentence and replace "dogs" with "men". The ending is a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when [[spoiler: Mad Dog gets his just deserts and Bunny and Kitty are reunited.]]

** Eustace [[spoiler: actually cutting down the tree in a way. It questions Eustace on if destroying it will really make Eustace happy. He actually pauses for a moment [[HopeSpot looking uncertain]] before declaring yes. A truly miraculous thing destroyed by one man's petty jealousy.]]

* Robot Randy has the titular villain conquering the farm to prove he's not a failure to his fellow robots. At night in the barn he's seen whittling wooden reindeer and actually sounding happy, only to curl up on the ground when thinking what the other robots would think of him and throwing the reindeer he just made with such care out the window. Someone being forced to throw away something that gives them such joy because of the cruel mockery of the world around them.

* From Ball of Revenge: "Courage, Courage, Courage! That stupid dog gets all the good stuff around here! I hate that dumb dog!" Those words hit Courage pretty hard, and Eustace doesn't get any better from there. ''WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter'' sums it up best:

--> ''"Eustace has never particularly liked Courage, but that was a little too blunt. To outright say that he hates Courage? Jesus.."''

Despite its reputation as a comedy/horror show, {{Courage The Cowardly Dog}} has several very sad episodes.

** The fact that [[spoiler: ''this is how the show ends'']] doesn't make it better..

* The Magic Tree of Nowhere, where [[spoiler: the titular tree is killed by a jealous Eustace.]]
** As a result of the above, Courage gives the second longest of his signature screams in this episode not out of fear, but of grief.

]] As a result of the above, Courage gives the second longest of his signature screams in this episode not out of fear, but of grief.



** This whole entire episode can easily chalk up as one of the saddest cartoon episodes most people will ever see, especially [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLFW8egVvOY with the piano playing ]].
** What's worse for this troper is the fact that ''this was the last episode of the series'', and we get a [[spoiler: an ending reveal where we see ''Courage's parents alive'']]. And yet the show never continued on it's fifth season...



** Eustace, by all means the biggest selfish jerk ever portrayed on any Cartoon Network show. Consider that Eustace was seeing this through a mirror that was meant to show one's true self. Sure, it was broken beforehand, but it may have been showing that Eustace is, deep down inside, a sad man who lashes out at everyone due to a painful childhood.
