* TheOtherDarrin: Lionel Wilson was replaced by Arthur Anderson as the voice of Eustace in the middle of the third season after the former died; despite this, audio of Wilson was still used when Eustace said his more common lines, laughed, or screamed (the difference was very noticeable). In the 2014 special, Anderson was replaced by none other than Creator/WallaceShawn (who [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent didn't even try to give Eustace a Scottish accent, using his normal voice instead; by comparison, Muriel's voice actress, Thea White, was able to flawlessly recreate her original voice). For Cartoon Network's 20th anniversary promo, Eustace is voiced by Creator/TomKenny.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: Cartoon Network decided the pilot should become its own series, and the show has spanned four entire seasons without a single threat of having it yanked off the air, despite its scary nature. This show is also one of the few cancelled originals to still air on a regular basis. The series was rerun on Cartoon Network for 13 years, up to 2015, always finding a way back on the schedule, it is even featured on Cartoon Network's website and even it's app.

*** The pilot, The Chicken From Outer Space, partly plays this straight and partly averts it. It's not on the Season 1 DVD, but John R Dilworth sells it through his online store.

* AccentDepundent: Once when Courage asked for help regarding a mummy, Computer thought he meant mommy, since "mummy" is the British way of writing it.
-->'''Computer''': If your mummy is coming for a visit, then give her flowers, [[CatchPhrase you twit.]]
-->'''Courage''': ''(frowns, retypes)''
-->'''Computer''': Oh, ''a mummy'', that's much worse.



* ExecutiveMeddling: The reason behind Courage's limited speech and constant babbling and screaming after the first season.
** Unlike some examples, this actually wasn't a detriment to the show creatively; [[https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/33s9p6/im_john_dilworth_creator_of_courage_the_cowardly/cqnyizh?context=3 John R. Dilworth and the production crew preferred the change.]]

* WordOfGod: One of the few oddities John Dilworth willingly explained was the hole Courage's tooth: it's a symbol that nature is imperfect, and how one can still affirm in life when they know that evil exists.

** When Cartoon Network started developing the series in 1999, the show was set to be produced and developed by Hanna-Barbera, which handled the ''What a Cartoon!'' anthology series that featured the show's pilot short. Dilworth eventually sent the production to his Stretch Films Studios, but it would've been interesting to see how Hanna-Barbera would've developed the series following its ''What a Cartoon!'' short.

** One early idea was for each cartoon to have a live-action bridging segment, with John Dilworth playing "Spaceman Dilly."
