** It's taken a ''long'' time for the USA where ''Bebop'' is most popular to get the Blu-Ray set. Even the UK got it long before North America. This is probably ''because'' the show is so revered in the States; no one could afford it until years after the set had come out in Japan. Fortunately, Creator/{{Funimation}} has assured American fans that the long-awaited Blu-Ray set is finally coming. Until then, though, those who want it have to import from Japan or the UK.

** * Though its gotten to the point that even fans of the show agree that it's been rerun to death ever since it first premiered, and just when it seems like the show will be given a break, the production crew behind Toonami still insists on bringing it back and airing it. That being said, there are still those that contest that Toonami isn't complete without ''Cowboy Bebop''.

* AlternateContinuity: ''Shooting Star'', the first manga SpinOff. When Cain Kuga started the comic, only the first episode or two of the anime had been completed (not yet aired), so that and the main character bios were all she had to go on. She ended up going in a completely different direction from the anime, which may have been a factor in its premature cancellation.

* CowboyBeBopAtHisComputer: In a rather incorrect newspaper picture caption (see the page pic), every single word except "at" and the photo credit "[[Creator/BandaiEntertainment Bandai]]" is specifically, individually wrong:

** "Cowboy," the slang term for "bounty hunter" used in the world of the series, refers to the main characters' profession rather than naming anybody. Ed is also not one, being the crew's TagalongKid and a hacker, not a bounty hunter.

** There was a [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 PS2]] game all sent to be released in Japan and the States... then for some reason Namco-Bandai cancelled the English version and it never saw the light of day in the US. Fans are still scratching their heads wondering what happened to prevent its release. The game itself is the source of CowboyBebopAtHisComputer. There was another game for [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation PS1]] as well, which played a lot like ''VideoGame/StarFox'' and was also only released in Japan. Though at the very least that game had the reason that it was released during a time with Cowboy Bebop wasn't dubbed yet (the dub wouldn't come out till 2000 and by that point consoles were shifting to PS2).

* TechnologyMarchesOn: One episode hinges on Analouge TV's less-than-perfect signals. Faye gets Spike mixed up with her mob contact because all she can make out from the static is the guy's suit and 'do. Which Spike shares.
** Another centers around getting a [=BetaMax=] cassette player for a tape containing [[spoiler: a movie Faye shot with her colledge class as part of a time capsule]]-[=BetaMax=] players being completely subsumed by VCR's in the 90's; VCR's themselves taken down by DVD players, Blu-Ray's, Netflix, and video game consoles since around 2005.
** Everyone smokes real cigarettes; not one vapourizer is seen.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: ''Knockin' on Heaven's Door'' was originally conceived as elaborating on Spike's backstory as part of the Red Dragon Syndicate. But they determined that one of the defining characteristics of the show was the ''lack'' of exposition on backstory, in addition to all of the fan theories surrounding it, and thus they decided on an inter-quel.

* TheCameo / InkSuitActor: In a sense. The intro to TheMovie shows the everyday activities of the people living in a city on Mars. Among the people depicted are animated representations of Creator/WendeeLee (Faye), Creator/BeauBillingslea (Jet), and Creator/SteveBlum (Spike).[[note]]Lee appears as a bikini-clad woman drinking from a bottle, Billingslea is the DJ singing "What's up?" and Blum is the guy in sunglasses who does some cheesy kung-fu moves.[[/note]] Why the English voice actors and not the Japanese voice actors? Simply put, the show did so well in western countries, especially in the States - helped in part by the notably superb dubbing job - that it's the reason the movie got made at all!
