Episode Info

The title being a take on the tune by the Stray Cats, the episode "Stray Dog Strut" marks the first appearance of the data dog Ein and his joining of the Bebop crew. Jet and Spike are after the bounty of thief Abdul Hakim. Hakim is chasing after the valuable data dog while illegal research scientists try to get it back. One of the more lighthearted and funny episodes, it makes some references to Bruce Lee's Game of Death.

Critic Reviews for Stray Dog Strut

All in all, while probably nobody's favorite episode, Stray Dog Strut is a fun and enjoyable diversion.

Session 2 was fun and the car chase at the end of the episode was spectacular... but overall it felt largely inconsequential.

The jokes in this week's episode are all fairly measured, and even the more caricature-like supporting characters are never too broadly sketched out.
