Cowboy Bebop: Mushroom Samba

Out of fuel, out of food, and sideswiped in a spaceborne hit-and-run incident, the Bebop crew are stranded in the wilds of Europa. A haul of suspect mushrooms causes trouble among the crew, with Spike accosted by a talking frog, Faye swimming in the toilet, and Jet trying to teach his bonsai trees the meaning of life. It’s up to Ed and Ein to save the day, and that entails catching fugitive pusher Domino Walker, unless rival bounty-hunter Coffee or avenging bad-mother brother Shaft catch him first.

When this episode first aired on Adult Swim, there was a sound problem that resulted in the sound of bullets being fired getting muted out (which some mistook as an act of censorship). When this episode reran, the sound was fixed.
