Plot

The story of a "dandy guy" called Space Dandy. Space Dandy is an "Alien Hunter" who seeks out new alien lifeforms as fast as he can, so he can earn the cash to chase his dream of one day owning the intergalactic "breastaurant" franchise called Boobies. With the help of an obsolete robot called QT and a space-cat from Betelgeuse nicknamed "Meow," Dandy steers his ship Aloha Oe across the universe to find these aliens before anyone else.

Also, there's an intergalactic war going on and a talking gorilla doctor who thinks Dandy holds the key to conquering one side of that war. We probably should have mentioned that earlier.
