Plants Are Living Things, Too, Baby is the ninth episode of the Space Dandy anime.


Essentially, Dandy and the cat looking guy go to a planet to look for an apparently rare creature known as Code-D. Landed on the planet, Dandy meets a mysterious people of ultra-evolved plants endowed with intellect able to speak their own language and that they have created their own civilization. With the translator, Dandy makes the acquaintance of a plant scientist named Doctor H and his daughter 033H, who along with his other plant colleagues states that Dandy is the first non-vegetal being to appear on the planet. Doctor H, reveals to Dandy that the alien Code-D is at the north pole of their world. Offering to escort him to retrieve it. All of this will ultimately prove to be a deception. The Code-D is actually a meteorite with immense energy, which fell on the planet and which allowed plants to evolve rapidly. Doctor H and his other plants, having seen how their society was a dictatorship, managed by arrogant plants, decided to violate the law and find a way to remove the meteorite while knowing that this would make them regress back to being simple plants. Dandy was the key to the plan's success, as the plants could not get any closer to the meteorite due to its energy. They will be brought back to normal by Dandy at the end of the series after he rewinds time. By restoring their planet, and their society, but that will most likely be better.
