Episode Info

In this episode, "Cowboy Funk," the crew is in search of the bounty for a terrorist called the Teddy Bomber, a serial bomber with a stuffed animal shtick. Just as he is about to blow up another building, Spike arrives and beats him up with his signature style. Suddenly, a self-styled outlaw named Cowboy Andy appears and messes everything up for Spike. On the Bebop, Jet and Faye don't believe the story, and Spike develops a growing animosity for Andy. Ed discovers his true identity as Andy Von de Oniyate, a bored rich kid who is heir to a ranch estate and indulges in his longing to be a bounty hunter with silly gimmicks. In a continued effort to find the Teddy Bomber, the Bebop crew goes to a masquerade party, only to meet up with Cowboy Andy once again.

Critic Reviews for Cowboy Funk

The show gives us one more silly-fun action romp before things start turning serious.

It's just the right level of over the top, with other characters acknowledging it being ridiculous, so that it doesn't simply turn into a self-parody.

There's something remarkable about an episode that's this thoughtful, clever and well-assembled, top to bottom.
