Creepy af and tramautizing

Bro so I watched this show as a kid and it was so traumatizing there was an episode were the grandma gets sewn into a literal carpet. I think it’s not scary when your older because it just seems silly, but for little kids the episodes are disturbing and traumatizing

This title has:

Too much violence
age 8+

I enjoy long days of being entertained by Courage.

I enjoy long days with my children Christopher and Janice we watch Courage Muriel and Eustace because it is educational displays experience and is funny.
