Cowboy Bebop Wiki

This video maniac was a clerk in a video store on Mars. He was enthusiastic about antique technology and about old 20th century television shows. He believed current-day shows were not as good.

One day, Spike Spiegel and Jet Black came to the store to inquire about playing a certain beta cassette. The man enthusiastically set up a player to play it and informed the two about the cassettes themselves. He complained a lot to Spike as he banged on the players to get them to work. In fact, the man froze as Spike kicked a player while playing the cassette, ruining it. He demanded they pay for the player, but Jet responded that the cassette was ruined as well, calling it even.[1]
