Somewhere between translation from Japanese to English in both the dub and the subs one phrase from the opener was ill translated.
>"Space Dandy is a dandy guy in space."
The actual phrase goes like
>"Space Dandy is a dandy in space."
Dandy is a metaphorical dandy in space, or dandelion, which scatters its numerous seeds at a slight blow of the wind. Each of these individual seeds travels with the wind but all end up in different places, close and far. This metaphor closely follows the parallel worlds theory that a lot of anons have suggested (primarily from the ED).

You now realize why the show is named Space Dandy, both because he is a pretty dandy guy and because of the metaphor which the plot may revolve around.

If he ever comes across a dandelion, I will be convinced.

no, dumbass, he is a DANDY, a useless, preening male, like a peacock.

Maybe you're just retarded
