Big Bayou is a minor villain in Courage The Cowardly Dog, serving as the primary antagonist of the episode, The Uncommon Cold. He is a red snake who forces his slaves to make "statues" of his old skin. He practices Bayou magic, a spiritist magic similar to Voodoo. He is very egoistical. He was defeated by his own "statues" after Courage (using Bayou magic) ordered them to, scaring Big Bayou out of his wits, and eventually forcing him to plea, but his pleas are ignored by the statues. He is later seen suffering and getting tortured and locked with chains around him. The statues probably did this to him.
