In the far flung future, there is a demand for exotic aliens. If there's some crazy bright pink tentacled monstrosity out there that you want in your zoo, then Space Dandy is the man for the job. Dandy is an alien hunter, someone who is paid to find new, undiscovered alien species. It's an industry where the prize goes to the person who finds aliens the fastest. Dandy and his companions, [[RobotBuddy QT the worn-out robot]], and Meow the cat-like alien from Betelgeuse, fly around space in the ship ''Aloha Oe'' to far-flung planets in search of strange beings. While he's determined to get the job done, at the end of the day, Dandy would rather just spend his time with the lovely waitresses at ''[[FanserviceWithASmile BooBies]]''. Meanwhile, they're being chased by minions of the Gogol Empire, for reasons unknown...

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Much like its [[CowboyBebop predecessor]], Dandy's crew basically never actually get the alien they are hunting for in any given episode. [[spoiler:One time they do actually catch it and get rich, but Meow dies and is forgotten by Dandy and QT, and regardless everything is back to normal by the start of the next episode.]]

** Dandy, when Adelie gets captured in episode 5, suddenly shows that he's a fierece bounty hunter. It's even more impressive considering [[ItMakesSenseInContext he's stuck in the body of a stuffed penguin the whole time]].

%%* MohsScaleOfSciFiHardness: Very much on the soft end of the scale.



** Eighth episode has Dandy causing [[spoiler: Planet Machinia to turn into a black hole after accidentally killing on the last two Machinians keeping the planet intact]].

* SchrodingersCat: In one alternate universe, Meow is a "Schrodigerian". Every time you open the box he lives in, he could either be dead or alive.

* BottleEpisode: Sort of. "Nobody Knows the Chameleon Alien, Baby", while we still visit a few planets, the majority of the episode is spent inside the Aloha Oe ship where the crew is hunting down the shapeshifting Chameleonian.

* AlienGeometry: Catherine, Dandy's Ex-girlfriend, is a 4th Dimensional being. She's basically two interconnected rectangles inside each other, and she's able to move them around. Not too different from [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Ramiel]]. There's also Paul, Catherine's most recent ex-boyfriend, who comes from a 2D universe, which itself has the ability to invade the 3D universe. It's entire existence is like something out of a video game.
