[[DesignatedHero A group of rough-and-tumble space outlaws]]. [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness A criminal organization]] with a team of [[RobotGirl android assassins]]. A [[ActionGirl hard-as-nails female detective]] and her [[TheDitz spazzy sidekick]]. [[EarthShatteringKaboom And a planet packed with treasure scheduled for demolition]].

Shove them together, and you've got ''Coyote Ragtime Show''.

The [[TwelveEpisodeAnime twelve-episode series]] basically follows the misadventures of Mister, the leader of a branch of outlaws referred to as 'Coyotes', and his adopted daughter-thing Franca, who holds the keys to a massive treasure that's the legacy of her father, a legendary Coyote. However, they are not only being pursued by a [[EvilIsSexy sexy, gothic woman named Marciano]], but her band of '12 [=SISTERs=]', a band of robots dressed head to toe in [[ElegantGothicLolita Goth-Loli]]. Really.

Beautifully animated and generally exciting (as well as lots and lots of explosions and spaceships). It's a fun tale that isn't a masterpiece, but worth at least one viewing.

The first two episodes can currently be watched for free on the [=FUNimation=] video portal, [[http://www4.funimation.com/video/?page=show&b=18 here]]
