# Title Original airdate Production code 0a "The Chicken from Outer Space" July 2, 1995 S1 In a farmhouse in the middle of Nowhere, Kansas, there lived an elderly couple (Muriel and Eustace Bagge) and their timid dog (Courage). When Courage fears a lowly white mouse and jumps on top of Eustace's head, the grumpy farmer frightens his pet outside the farmhouse with a large mask. Outdoor, a space chicken arrives at the farm and plans to invade it. Courage runs indoors and tries to warn his owners, although they don't believe him when they run out to look and the space chicken was gone. Eustace scares his dog with his large mask once again. Courage runs near the Bagge's henhouse. There, he saw the space chicken choking one of the hens. Courage then runs back to the farmhouse and brings Muriel to the henhouse to see. All the hens appear to vanish except the space chicken, who pretends to be a normal hen. Muriel takes one of the eggs from the space chicken and wonders off back to the farmhouse to cook the eggs for breakfast. The space chicken then was outside and locks Courage inside the henhouse. While Courage manages to escape, Muriel cooks the space eggs for breakfast for herself and Eustace in the farmhouse. Eustace eats the eggs and he transforms into a space chicken. Outside the farmhouse, Courage challenges the space chicken to several contests. In the end, the canine wins. However, the space chicken pulls out his laser gun and tries to fry Courage, only to end up firing on himself, only leaving behind a cooked chicken. Courage returns to the farmhouse and shoots the Eustace-chicken when he threatens Muriel. While Courage and Muriel relax, the lowly mouse appears again and starts to nibble Eustace-chicken's ashes; the episode ends as his eyes turn scarlet red and his transformation (presumably) begins.
