2014 | 12 | Blu- ray/ DVD This anime spoof space opera is from Shinichiro Watanabe, best known for his action- noir SF show Cowboy Bebop, though Dandy’s a featherweight in comparison. It features a trio of thinlysketched space adventurers: the titular character, a strutting dandy with a giant pompadour hairdo, plus a slobby cat- alien and a fusspot droid. Whimsical adventures abound. The show gradually finds its feet with a witty zombie episode, an exciting robot revolt and a tribute to the trippy Euro classic Fantastic Planet. Intermittent fun, but thoroughly disposable.
