Now you're going to learn why no one ever checks out of the Katz Motel.
~ Katz choking his archenemy before he attempts to kill him.

Katz is the main antagonist of Courage the Cowardly Dog. In most of his appearances, Katz usually runs a business and uses said businesses to commit crimes and murder people. He is the archenemy of Courage.

He was voiced by Paul Schoeffler.

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", he 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", he attempts to murder Muriel, because she refuses to give him the recipe for her biscuits, as he always loses to her at cooking competitions.
  • In "Katz Under the Sea", he 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 egoism, 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.
  • While he has some comedic moments, he is still taken seriously as a threat, and therefore these do not detract from his heinousness.

  • 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.
