Looking back, it actually is amazing how much black comedy and horror came from "Courage the Cowardly Dog." Case in point: in pretty much all of the episodes he's in, Katz's plans usually involve somebody else dying (or, at the very least, disfigured). In other words, he's basically a serial killer; not quite as overt as Benton Tarentella, but it's definitely there. And most likely because of the same reasons people latch onto characters like Patrick Bateman in "American Psycho," that's sort of what makes Katz such an awesome villain.

While "A Night at the Katz Motel" is probably the best Katz episode, this one is a close second. The story told here is pretty awesome, and we've even got some fleshed-out characterization going on. First, Katz has always been a sociopath, but this episode shows that he can be petty, too. When you get right down to it, he basically threatens to kill an old lady just because she takes first prize in a sweets contest every year.

Speaking of Muriel, she's pretty good in this episode too, if only for the fact that she's actually aware of the danger going on around her. Sure, she's normally a good character anyway, but there are definitely times when she seems a little too naive for her own good. Eustace, meanwhile, actually provides a good amount of humor in this episode, and even gets to play hero by defeating Katz's jam monster (I won't spoil how, but it's pretty awesome). Not only that, but he actually holds his own when Katz tries to stop him from helping Muriel. That's something you definitely don't see in a lot of episodes.

Overall, this episode is great. It has an interesting story, enough action and suspense to keep you interested, and the ending is satisfying, with Katz ultimately getting his just desserts (sorry).

Know if they only gave Eustace some action in farmer hunter farmer hunted, like the deer kidnapping courage and we see Eustace go full badass to save courage.
