Nobody Knows the Chameleon Alien, Baby is the twelfth episode of the Space Dandy anime.


After a run of increasingly low-paying catches, Scarlet tells the boys about an extremely valuable species of alien that's able to perfectly mimic anything.


Dandy hauls in yet another alien to Scarlet only to find out that the bounty was only two wooglongs. Dandy and the rest of the crew complain so much that Scarlet tells them about a rare species of alien called a chameleonian the can mimic people and objects. It does this so well that no one knows what it looks like not even the alien itself.

The crew then begins the hunt on a jungle planet by fishing. QT then finds out that he loves fishing to the point where it becomes an obsession. He keeps one of his catches as a pet which turns out to be the very chamelioian Dandy is looking for.

At the end of the episode doctor Gel captures the Chamelionian disguised as Dandy. Upon boarding the ship the Chamelionian takes the Doctor's form, prompting Gel to freak out and succumb to Gestaltzerfall.


  • The dog-faced alien only being worth two Wooglongs is a small nod to Ein from Cowboy Bebop, who was only valued at two Wooglongs by a pet shop.
