In the year 2071, humanity has colonized several of the planets and moons of the solar system leaving behind the now uninhabitable surface of planet Earth. The Intersolar System Police try to keep the peace in the galaxy, aided in part by outlaw bounty hunters known as “Cowboys.” The motley crew aboard the Bebop spacecraft are two such individuals.
The easy-going and carefree Spike Spiegel balances out with his boisterous and pragmatic partner Jet Black as the pair make a living chasing bad guys and collecting bounties. Diverted by the addition of new members they meet on their travels: Ein, a highly intelligent and genetically modified Welsh Corgi; femme-fatale Faye Valentine, an enigmatic trickster with memory loss; and strange computer genius boy Edward Wong – the team embarks on exciting adventures that unravel each member’s dark and mysterious past little by little.
