Biography

In "A Night At Katz Motel", Katz first appears and is seen running a motel. Muriel, Eustace and Courage were going to stay the night there, but Katz forbid dogs from entering his motel. Katz intended to murder Eustace and Muriel by sending giant spiders after them. However, Courage came back into the hotel to try and save Muriel and Eustace. Katz corners Courage and decided to play a ball game with him. When Courage is exhausted from the game, Katz approaches Courage with a giant spider and laughs as he was about to kill him. However, Muriel knocks out Katz and leaves with Courage and Eustace.

In "Klub Katz", Katz runs a club on an island. Katz would have the people that joined his club transform into machines to fight each other. Eustace and Muriel ended up transforming into machines themselves. Katz is later seen at a Colosseum where he watches the machines spar with each other for his own amusement. An angry Eustace then turns his attention to Katz and attempts to attack him. Katz tries to escape from an angry Eustace, as the latter transformed into a crane and destroys Katz's resort.

In "Katz Kandy", Katz creates a blob and sent it to capture Muriel. Katz wanted to win the annual sweet stuff contest, but was envious that Muriel beats him each year. When Muriel appears in his place, he attempted to kill her by putting her inside of a machine that would have battered her. Courage followed after the blob to Katz's place. When Courage encounters him, Katz had a staring contest with him. During their confrontation, Katz ended up falling into the machine that he used to try and kill Muriel. Muriel told Katz that she used vinegar in her recipe to win each year which surprised Katz. Katz later transforms into a green piece of candy from being inside the machine. He participates in the sweet stuff contest and loses to Muriel again.

In "Katz Under the Sea", Katz runs a submarine business. He had passengers board his submarine and have it go underground. Katz talks to the passengers of the submarine. He wanted to exclude Courage from being on the ship since he was a dog but the latter managed to disguise himself as a dummy. While the people were still on board, Katz prepared to bomb the submarine. He attempted to leave the ship and leave everyone else to die. He said that he wanted to bomb the ship in order to run another business out of business. Katz managed to escape the submarine, but Courage managed to save everyone before the submarine exploded.

In "Ball of Revenge", Katz appeared with other villains like Le Quack, Queen of the Black Puddle, and others when Eustace called them over for a meeting. Eustace was angry at Courage and wanted the villains to get rid of him. Katz participated in the one-sided dodgeball game where all the villains were on one team against Courage who was by himself. The villains managed to overwhelm Courage. However, Courage lets out a loud scream causing the ground in basement to collapse and for all the villains to fall into a trench below.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • In "A Night At Katz Motel", he is shown running a motel where his guests enter but never exit as he has them fed to his giant, mutated spiders. He attempts to do the same to Muriel and Eustace once they check in to the motel.
  • In "Klub Katz", Katz had people who joined his club turned into machines against their wills. He has them spar in an arena for his own amusement resulting in them killing each other and taking sadistic delight in doing so. It's even implied that he's forced family members to kill each other with his line "I love a good family brawl". He once again tries to do the same to Eustace and Muriel.
  • In "Katz Kandy", Katz attempts to murder Muriel for beating him in the sweet stuff contest.
  • In "Katz Under the Sea", Katz runs another business where his guests are on a submarine. However, Katz attempts to bomb the ship with everyone on board to hurt another business. While attempting to bomb the submarine, Katz tried to save himself and leave everyone else to their demise. Despite being eaten by a shark, he managed to bomb the ship.
  • Unlike most villains in Courage the Cowardly Dog, Katz is not portrayed with any redeeming qualities, mitigating factors, or excuses for his actions. Most of the times, his actions are done solely for his own entertainment, at the expense of the overall suffering of others, as seen in "Klub Katz". Other times, it is also based on pettiness, as seen in "Katz Kandy".
  • Katz expresses sadism while encountering Courage. He prefers to prolong the dog’s pain by setting up games knowing that Muriel and others are in danger. In "A Night At Katz Motel", Katz expressed intense glee as he was about to murder Courage with a giant spider.
  • In Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo! Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog, he teamed up with Le Quack to steal a meteor and use it to mind control all the rich people so they can give them their money.
  • While he has some comedic moments, he is still taken 100% seriously as a threat, and therefore these don't detract from his heinousness.

Trivia

  • Katz is Cartoon Network's first villain to be Pure Evil, with his debut episode, "A Night at the Katz Motel", first airing on November 12th, 1999.
