Courage Meets Bigfoot

Out in the middle of Nowhere, Courage has been noticing some strange things, and to top it all off, a large footprint was found, suggesting the presence of a Sasquatch. Can Courage stop the Bigfoot from doing any harm, or will Eustace capture it and get his reward?


After reading an ad in the newspaper, Eustace goes to a testing facility hoping that they can get him to grow some hair. Unfortunately, the product that they give him causes any thing he gets mad at to have explosive results.

Tropes provided:

  • Angry Mob: Eustace gets one when he tries to capture Bigfoot. They end up chasing him away when he puts it in shackles after it reunites with its mother.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: When Courage is imagining all the horrible things the Bigfoot could do to Muriel, one of them has him punting her through a goal post.
  • Asshole Victim: To the company who gave him the hair product.
  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: In "Courage Meets Bigfoot".
  • Cool Car: Di Lung has one. Before, you know, Eustace blows it up.
  • Easily Forgiven: When the Bigfoot tries to steal the pie, Courage stops him, but ends up splattering it all over the walls. When Muriel sees, she tells him that next time, he should use a plate.
  • Food Fight: Between Bigfoot and Courage. They bond over it.
  • Gentle Giant: Bigfoot.
  • Happy Dance: Eustace does one once he hears that there will be a reward to the person who brings in Bigfoot. He really wanted that life long membership.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When the angry mob realizes that Bigfoot is really a little boy who got separated from his mom, they collectively look very ashamed of themselves for what they tried to do. And the minute Eustace still goes through with his plan to capture Bigfoot and collect the reward, they promptly chase him down.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Throughout "Hothead".
