Most of the episodes end with an intertitle that reads "SEE YOU SPACE COWBOY..." However, certain episodes end with different text: Session #03: EASY COME, EASY GO... Session #11: THE END Session #12: TO BE CONTINUED Session #13: DO YOU HAVE A COMRADE? Session #15: SLEEPING BEAST... Session #17: LIFE IS BUT A DREAM... Session #22: SEE YOU SPACE SAMURAI... Session #24: SEE YOU COWGIRL,SOMEDAY, SOMEWHERE! Session #25: TO BE CONTINUED Session #26: YOU'RE GONNA CARRY THAT WEIGHT. See more »
After the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, for two cycles, episode #22, "Cowboy Funk" was not aired on Cartoon Network, due to its plotline (a bomber blowing up skyscrapers) and the associated images of skyscrapers collapsing. The episode has since been aired on Cartoon Network. Also unaired, due to 9-11, was Episode #8 "Waltz for Venus," which opened with a spaceliner being hijacked. Also, for different reasons #6 "Sympathy for the Devil" (for scenes of a child being killed) was cut. All three episodes have since been aired on Cartoon Network. The original Japanese broadcast only aired half of the episodes in the show's run: the other half were deemed too violent for broadcast. It was aired later, uncut, on the cable WowWow network.

Cowboy Bebop is the best anime ever. I'm 21, don't tend to be fanboyish, and have seen plenty of others. And it's the best anime ever.
What other anime features a mix of the best choreographed/energetic/ kick-ass fighting scenes - hand-to-hand, hong-kong gun fights and air-space battle?
An unbelievable mix of comic, tragic, violent and fairy tale style episodes...
An incredible sound track - Yoko Kanno is a genius that can do memorable and emotional jazz, blues, classical, fantasy-style, j-pop and even heavy metal. I wouldn't even consider buying the soundtrack to any other anime.
It quite literally oozes "cool" - characters (Spike is probably the coolest - not awsomest, but stylishly coolest) music, action and narrative.
Hell, it's the only show that has both a "cute animal" character and a "cute annoying kid" character that I don't wish a horrible death upon. And if that doesn't convince you, then nothing will.
