Without doubt, one of the finest episodes of any anime, in any genre. Everything in this episode was calculated to give the viewer the rush of a broad spectrum of emotions, from the throwaway comedic elements (the orange peel) to the tension of the fight, and finally the pitiful sight of a small child trapped in a grown man's body crying for his mother. Just perfection distilled into 24.5 minutes.

Well said.

I was ever so slightly creeped out at the end, when Pierrot was crying for his mother. It sent a chill down my spine, which is an achievement, let me tell you.

I agree, that this episode is so creepy and unsettling is an achievement.
I really don't like this episode though. I felt so bad at the end when he starting panicking, thinking he saw a cat. :(


Did anyone notice the rare moment where Spike actually looked afraid? When Pierrot was attacking him at the beginning.. Then we again see his superhero-like ability to think quickly and save himself in a deadly situation..

Great, great great episode.

I'm just wondering - when Faye walks out of the bathroom she says, "If you had give me another minute, I would have finished..." or something to that affect.

Dirty faye? :P

One of the best episodes. THE best villain though. Great character. Reminds me of the baby from Spirited Away (I know this predates that).

We've had almost everything in Cowboy Bebop so far. From Spike's action and dramatic story, going through Jet's film-noir, Faye's mystery, Ed and Ein's parodies, to supernatural and sci-fi thriller episodes like Toys in the Attic.

Now enter Mad Pierrot, a nightmarish entity in an almost surreal, action-packed episode that delivers one of the creepiest and most thrilling moments of the series.

Definitely my favorite stand-alone episode of Cowboy Bebop. Mad Pierrot is simply the best 20-minute episode villain I've ever, ever seen. Anywhere. And the episode is just so well done, extremely re-watchable.

See You Space Cowboy...

Same here. D: Mad Pierrot just freaked me out from the start.

And what a way to perpetuate people's fears of clowns and theme parks at night. XD


D: You're not helping. xD

The creepiest part for me was when Spike shot up the theme park Pluto sailor character and it kept trying to talk and then he kicked in its face till it fell in the ground and STILL was trying to move and talk with his face bashed in. o_o

Now this was a dark episode. Absolutely loved it! Pierrot, awesome character, evil, child-like, and a murderer. Perfect combo right there to create a new character. Probably one of my favorite episodes from this series.

Brilliant episode, the dub VA for Pierrot did a really good job. His laugh was insane, it fit Mad Pierrot perfectly.

Wathing this episode in the middle of the night wasn't a good idea.
Now I'm too scared to sleep! O__O

Intense episode, that psychopath reminds me of the Penguin from Batman for some reason.
