It's basically an anime about 4 bounty hunters named Spike Spiegel, Faye Valentine, Jet Black and Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV (felt I had to add the name) and their dog, Ein. The episodes have nothing to do with each other, but it is still good (those who think otherwise are narrow-minded asses). It's got violence, cursing, Mafias, music, everything! I seriously suggest finding out more about it via internet and watching it! The movie's good, too.
Cowboy Bebop is the finest anime series out there.

Japanese animation made in 1998 by Sunrise and Bandai Visual. Highly popular in the United States via Cartoon Network's Adult Swim late night program for its excellent combination of story, characters, visuals, and soundtrack.

Basically a line of 26 "stand-alone" episodes loosely linked by an underlying story based on the characters' pasts, and mainly about their bounty-hunting adventures throughout the solar system in 2071 A.D. Good inclusion of humor also added.

Characters: (The 4 main)

Spike Spiegel:
Former gangster (of the Martian "Red Dragon" Chinese Mafia) and Jet Black's partner. Pilots his Swordfish II MONO fighter, has green fuzzy hair, smokes. Also hates kids, animals, and women with attitude.(Corresponding characters below)

Jet Black:
Former I.S.S.P. (Inter Solar System Police) member who lost his left arm in a past incident and owner of both the BEBOP ship and his MONO combat ship the Hammerhead. Is real old-fashioned and quite a man of morals. Smokes too.

Faye Valentine:
A heavy gambling woman who appears young (through cryogenic hibernation) but is actually older than she looks, and is in serious debt to the hospital that suspended her. Has amnesia from an accident in her past, and is very irritable. Also a smoker.

Ed(Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivrusky IV):
The crazy, eccentric, yet brilliant all at the same time hacker from Earth. Claims to be 13 and is often confused for a boy. Built and named her own computer "Tomato". Is the only non-smoker beside the unique dog Ein.

A good mix of 2-D animation and at times 3-D CGI(Computer Graphic Imagery) to provide the visually stunning sci-fi action.

Perhaps the best backdrop for the entire series. With music composed by reknowned composer Yoko Kanno, her expertise in the American fields of jazz and blues and performed by the SEATBELTS and various other artists, Cowboy Bebop is among the best in the combination of these elements.

In my personal opinion, I respect it as an art form which takes into consideration great multicultural and respected influences (maybe except for the booze and smoke)to add to its satisfying entertainment.
For starters, watch the first episode of COWBOY BEBOP "Asteroid Blues" either on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim (USA) or on DVD.

the greatest anime ever created! Spike is the man and viscious is a fucking lunatic! But the designs, music, and the action are perfectly blended to show superiority over all others! Cartoon Network went and pissed me off wen they started showing it because every anime they show is mutilated. (see dragonball z)
All i have to say is...BALLAD OF FALLEN ANGELS...

An amazing animated show from Japan. You can't really call it anime.....'cause it's good.
I was amazed when I watched a whole Japanese show and none of the characters changed shape and got all gay and round. I've seen two episodes and I'm addicted to Cowboy Bebop.

Possibly the greatest anime ever created! You don't need to know anymore because it is so awesome, in fact, that your eyes will literally cum at the end of each episode!!!
Stop reading this and go watch Cowboy Bebop and bask in the awesomeness that it excretes!!!
