* 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.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: [[http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/720/714/bdc.png As explained here]], the episode "The Mask" got the show screwed when Cartoon Network came under heat from [[MoralGuardians angry parents]] who believed the episode contained lesbian undertones (in all fairness, they probably weren't wrong) and threatened to sue Creator/CartoonNetwork unless they cancelled the show. Many at the network have admitted that ''Courage'' was [[AdoredByTheNetwork their favourite of all Cartoon Network series]], saying if they had any real choice they would have kept it running. Whatever the case, the show got to air the rest of its final season.

** On the same token, because of the series' popularity with fans, a movie was also up for consideration (whether theatrical or TV was never made clear), but nothing ever came out of it.
