The next villain on my list might be the most frightening looking of them all. He is the Spirit of the Harvest Moon!
Good grief, look at him! Those black abyss eyes and pale skin. He looks so out of place in the show itself. Everything else on the show is animated, but the Spirit of The Harvest Moon is a human head that floats!
The Spirit of The Harvest Moon appears because Eustace has failed to use the land properly and has grown nothing. This enrages the spirit and he tells them to get out by midnight. At first, he makes objects in the house rattle and move by themselves to scare the family. He also whispers “Get out.” at first which is creepy. Eventually, he starts to repeat “Get out!” in a loud, threatening way! This scared me so badly when I was little. His voice is ominous and deep. Plus, the way his face moves is disturbing.
Eustace refuses to leave. The spirit gives them until midnight to either leave or grow something. Courage tries to grow some flowers. Eustace does nothing, of course. The clock strikes midnight and the spirit locks the family in the house. The house begins to MELT with the family locked inside. That’s right, the spirit plans on killing the family by melting them down to nothing to join the soil. WOW!
Courage finally gets a small flower to grow by using Eustace’s sweat as water and the Spirit of The Harvest Moon comments on the true meaning of being a farmer. Apparently, being a true farmer means getting your dog to grow a flower with your sweat while a creepy talking head harasses you and your family. I get it now!

Why do you dislike that episode? I remember it being pretty good. It will not be on the list, but some of the characters will be here.
1. Eustace was incredibly out of character. He endangered Muriel's life just to get back at Courage. 2. Some of the villain choices were odd. Some were great, Katz and LeQuack for instance. But The Cajun Fox? The Foot Fungus? And where was the Chicken from Outer Space?
I knew it would involve that out of character part. He mostly worries about dinner anyway. I heard a theory that he was on new medication at the time and maybe was acting out as a side effect.
Cajun Fox deserved his spot because he was in that first episode other than the pilot, but the Clutching Foot was stupid because he was Eustace's foot in the first place. Neither will be on this list, however.
The Weremole was also a weird choice.
I just appreciated the episode as a fun cameo episode where Courage finally defeats some of his main enemies.
What episodes were your favorites? I'm guessing the Le Quack episodes since you seem to love him.
I liked The Magic Tree of Nowhere, The Tower of Dr. Zalost, and all the Katz episodes.
I agree with Katz as the leader. However, I think Queen of The Black Puddle needed to be there as the female villain and maybe a few others. Fred would make no sense as he loves Muriel and likes Courage, plus his cameo as the end was already perfect.
I mostly agree with Courage's friends coming to help. Shirley was mostly focused on herself in episodes, but the Hunchback and Duck Brothers could have helped a lot as well.
