One-pot Mac 'n' Cheese | Courage the Cowardly Dog 🧀

Macaroni & Cheese: Also called mac 'n' cheese. it is a dish of cooked macaroni pasta and a cheese sauce most commonly cheddar. It can also incorporate other ingredients, such as breadcrumbs or meat. First invented in 1769. The exact origin of macaroni and cheese was unknown though it most likely hails from Northern Europe.

Courage the Cowardly Dog (1996) : An American animated comedy horror television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network and the eighth of the Cartoon Cartoons. Courage is a a kind yet easily frightened dog. He was abandoned as a puppy after his parents were forcibly sent into outer space by a crazed veterinarian. Soon after, he was found in an alleyway by Muriel Bagge, a friendly, sweet-natured Scottish woman, who decided to take Courage in as her own, and was inspired by the nature of this first meeting to give him his name. In the present, he lives with the now elderly Muriel and her also elderly husband Eustace Bagge, a grumpy, selfish and greedy American man who regularly mistreats Courage out of jealousy and refers to him as "stupid dog". The entire family lives in a two floor, isolated farmhouse in what consists of a large, desert-like area in the middle of Kansas: the nearest town to the farmhouse is a fictional town with the literal name of Nowhere. Courage and his owners frequently encounter monsters, aliens, demons, mad scientists, zombies, vampires, and other such perils involving the paranormal or supernatural. The plot generally uses conventions common to horror films. Although most of the creatures that the three face are hostile, some only appear that way, but are simply suffering from distress and/or acting in desperation, and can even turn out to be friendly to them. Courage main task in this TV series is to protect Muriel and Eustace from dangers. Courage, a genuine hero who often goes to great lengths to protect his owners, and a genuine coward who still expresses much of his distress with over-the-top, piercing shrieks.

You will find Courage cook some mac 'n' cheese for his owner, Muriel in one part of the 13th and final episode of Season One which aired in March 30, 2000 - "Little Muriel". In that episode, a tornado hits Nowhere, and Muriel is sucked in. The whole Bagge Farmhouse is completely destroyed by the twister, but luckily, Muriel is unharmed. However, the storm has altered her age and appearance, and she is now a three-and-a-half-year-old child. Poor Courage has only ever known the adult, harmonic and serene Muriel, so having her spoiled, unruly and hyper childhood self to deal with is pretty hard on him. After failing to make a macaroni and cheese platter to her satisfaction and keep her from playing in the dangerous ruins of the farmhouse, he can't take it anymore (HAHAHA poor courage!). Finally, Courage succeeds in turning Muriel back to her normal, elderly self (in only undergarments). They return to Bagge farm where she quickly returns to her normal outfit.
