  • The Bebop gang are after another bounty head. The Teddy Bomber, but so is another hunter by the name Cowboy Andy,who is part of the YMCA, who seems to have amnesia or something as he is going after Spike instead.moreless

    This is by far one of the funniest episodes of Bebop Ive seen.The most hilarious charater Cowboy Andy, with an uncanny resemblince to Spike, even though he seems to disagree, and a disgrunttled Teddy Bomber out to prove a point. This spisode is full of action and lots of explosions...duh!

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Andy's Profile
      Andy Von De Oniyate
      Height: 6 feet 2 inches
      Weight: 174 pounds
      Age: 27
      ID #: Y99478LID

      The rest of Andy's Profile is the same text as Zebra's from episode 6.

    • The movie, Knockin on Heaven's door, takes place after this episode.

    • During the initial run of the series on [Adult Swim], "Cowboy Funk" was one of three episodes (the othes being "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Waltz for Venus") that were not televised. This episode went unaired due to the 9/11 incident and the resemblence of the Twin Towers that Teddy Bomber targets. The episode did air during the second run of [i]Cowboy Bebop[/i] on [Adult Swim]. However, it did not run on the day it was supposed to, February 14th, 2002. [Adult Swim] apparantly made a mistake and aired the wrong episode, "Brain Scratch". "Cowboy Funk" aired the next evening.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Ed: Here he is, little Andy. He was registered as a member of the YMCA. How about that?
      Spike: He's a Christian?
      Ed: No, not that Y. The Young Men's Cowboy Association.
      Faye: I've never heard of that one before.

    • Spike: Hey listen, the evening's young, I know a rockin' joint. Care to join me and check it out?
      Ted: Nah, I hit the sack early, I'm not a night person.
      Spike: It's a first rate hotel that offers free bodyguard service and meals. The place has every amenity. One could live there.
      Ted: I'm sure they require reservations.
      Spike: Nope, you don't need one for hotel prison...Teddy Bomber.

    • Police Officer: Well anyway, what were you trying to achieve by blowing everything up?
      Ted: I only wanted to send out a warning against the needless waste created by capitalism without philosophy. The needless colonization of planets, the needless circulation of slanted media, and needlessly tall buildings that symbolize all of this! You see, by destroying these monoliths, I intended to remind the world that the pioneering spirit is truly about...
      Andy: Wait! Wait! Wait!
      Ted: Huh? Andy!
      (Andy rides alongside the van.)
      Andy: Call me Musashi! (laughs) Go, Jiroumaru! (rides off)
      Ted: But then, it was all needless too, wasn't it?

    • (After Spike comes back to the Bebop mentioning Andy ran over him with his horse)
      Spike: If I'm lying then how in the hell do you explain this on my back?
      Jet: Okay Okay, Chill. I totally buy the horse.
      Faye: You do?
      Jet: But you're lacking creativity in the cowboy character. He's lame.
      Faye: Yeah, maybe that's the problem.
      Jet: Perhaps if he was a samurai instead?
      Faye: Now that I wouldn't question!
      (Jet and Faye laugh)

    • Andy: (To Spike) See you, Space Cowboy.

    • Andy (to Faye): Now, why don't we drink to me, and my reflection in your lovely eyes. Cheers!
      Faye: (sarcastically) Yeah, cheers.

    • Andy: That was some punch.

    • Jet: Andy Von De Oniyate. He's the heir of the Oniyate Ranch.
      Faye: And he's pretty handsome.
      Ed: (reading out profile) Damage to private property: 123 counts. Damage to public property: 89 counts. Numerous injury victims.
      Faye: He sure reminds me of someone. (looks at Spike out of the corner of her eyes)

    • Faye: I brought you a souvenir.
      (Faye tosses a can to Spike that has a label of Andy on it. Spike frowns.)
      Ed: Yeaha! Souvenirs, souvenirs!
      Spike: I'm not gonna eat this can of crap. (hands it to Jet)
      Jet: But it's all we've got.
      Spike: I'd rather starve.
      (Ein barks and pants in front of his empty bowl.)
      Spike: (to Ein) You'll be sorry.

    • Waiter: Excuse me, sir. Horses aren't allowed in here, and it's quite disturbing for our...
      Andy: Ah, but my Onyx is no ordinary steed. (Ted looks increasingly angry.) She's a good compadre, who eases my mind, and plays a decent game of chess.
      Spike: Horses don't play chess!
      Jet: Who cares?!
      Ted: If there's one thing I hate, it's being IGNORED!
