    C&C - Space Dandy - "Plants Are Living Things Too, Baby!" [3/1]

    Like This Thread!



    "Life comes at you fast, just like a raging current! I don't fight it! Going against the flow? Just means you're swimming in place. One day you're too tired to paddle, and suddenly you drown! Whole thing was pointless and now you're dead, THE END! Now, going with the flow is where it's at. And that's...the dandy way to live."

    Welcome to the ninth official talkback for the world premiere of Space Dandy, only on Toonami on Adult Swim at 11:30 PM EST. Last week was almost Old Yeller in space, but then there was hilarity to make us feel better. And Gel "died" again. Sucker!

    This week, we'll be seeing something quite a bit different. It's been said that each individual Space Dandy episode has a style onto itself, and this time around the design work looks noticeably different for things.

    Dandy happens upon walking, talking plants.
    Also, there's that. Yeah.




    The Characters of Space Dandy


    Dandy



    Space Dandy is a dandy guy...in space! He operates on the scale of the universe and prides himself on "going with the flow", never worrying about the small details. We also know he's not such a bad dude cause he loves dogs. Yeah. That was sweet last week.

    As a professional "alien hunter" Dandy tries to make a living traveling the universe, discovering new alien life for money. Or screwing it up and dying or going broke. Good thing this show laughs in the face of continuity, huh?

    QT


    One day, Dandy walked into a secondhand robot shop looking for a competent droid companion like R2-D2. What he walked out with was QT, a "glorified broom bot" and yet quite possibly the only crew member of the Aloha Oe with any common sense. Alas, between his outdated tech and Dandy's carefree lifestyle, QT seems fated to not be listened to or taken seriously. Will QT's day of triumph ever come?

    Meow


    A native of the planet Betelgeuse (and most definitely not a space cat), Meow has become Dandy's companion on his spacefaring adventures - not that he's proven himself very useful at all! Fortunately, even he liked the dog last week, proving that everybody has something that doesn't suck deep down inside.

    Scarlet


    By day Scarlet is an inspector at the space alien registration center Dandy works for, acknowledging the discovery of new life...or crushing the dreams of hapless fools who bring in common species. She's also a super competent fighter and hasn't really appeared in enough episodes. Drat.

    Honey


    She works at "Hooters in Space." Hands up, who missed her last week? That's what I thought.

    Professor Gel


    A servant of the Gogol Empire, Professor Gel is quite possibly the space gorilla with the weirdest hair and the most inappropriate spaceship in the universe. With his minion Bea at his side, Gel chases Dandy across the universe, convinced he is a dangerous adversary. Despite possessing high intelligence and a fleet at his command though, he finds ways to fail spectacularly. Now that he's been sucked into a black hole, is there any way he could possibly do worse?! Only time will tell.

    Commodore Perry


    The ruler of the mighty Gogol Empire, which is currently battling the Jaicro Empire in an epic war for control of the entire universe - not that this has much of anything to do with Dandy's escapades. For what reason does he order the pursuit of Space Dandy?

    Fun trivia for this week: according to Thomas Romain the one who drew the backgrounds for this episode is Aymeric Kevin, art director of Kick-Heart and background artist for the video game Rayman Legends. Cartoon Brew spotlights some of his other work and links to his art blogs here.

    He once BURST OUT of a XENOMORPH'S CHEST.

    OBI-WAN KENOBI asks HIM for HELP.

    HOUSTON, he has NEVER had a PROBLEM.

    He is the MOST INTERESTING MAN in the UNIVERSE.

    Last time: Dandy finds a dog (which dies right before the commercial break), two flea-sized people invade the ship, and Dr. Gel dies again.

    This time: Beware the plants.

    Previously on Space Dandy: You know SD, most dead dog stories have the decency to kill the dog at the END of the story.

    LOL. GOOD things must come to an end, Tom says.

    And we get the Japanese OP again.

    QT got a smiley upgrade.

    Animation style change. Looks Plymptonesque.

    Transporter, eh? Well, if you believe the old Star Trek transporter death myth, then Dandy and Meow already died in this episode.

    What the limey hell.....?
