Episode 33 - Legend of a Dragon
This is a summary for the dubbed version of Dragonball episode #33, Legend of a Dragon.
Goku wakes up and begins looking for the Dragonballs again.  He's flying over a forest and gets hungry, so he decides to look for a "snack tree."  He finds a piece of fruit, but a monkey takes it before he can.  He chases the monkey, but stops when she sees her give it to her baby.  The baby monkey falls out of the tree, and when the mommy monkey is helping it, a panther attacks, but Goku beats it up.  Then all the monkeys come and give Goku food.  He eats too much, and falls asleep.  While he's asleep, the monkeys find the 5-star dragonball up in a tree and start playing catch with it.
Meanwhile, Krillin is training with Master Roshi, doing push-ups with 2 turtles and the turtle hermit sitting on his back.  Later when they're eating Roshi tells Krillin and Launch the legend of the dragonballs.  It used to be a single giant orb, which was put in a magnificent sculpture of a dragon.  Some men tried to steal it, but where shocked.  It was then decided that it would be safer if it were split into 7 separate orbs, to prevent evil from using it.  After the story, they talk about what they would wish for.  (Guess what Roshi's wish is...)
Goku wakes up, and sees on the dragon radar that the dragonball is moving away.  Meanwhile, the Red Ribbon Army is looking for the same ball.  They discover that the monkeys have it, and are ordered by General Silver to burn the forest and shoot the monkeys.  This gets Goku mad, and he attacks them, crushing a tank with a giant rock.  General Silver threatens Goku, but he stands firm, saying he isn't afraid of him.  Just then, Mommy monkey and baby monkey swing by, and baby monkey is holding the dragonball.  General Silver shoots and blows away the branch mommy monkey was about to grab onto.  Goku catches her and baby monkey by the tail before they fall into the gorge, but the dragon ball is dropped into the river, and is now floating downstream.
