U.S. Toonamie Premiere Airdate: August 22, 2001
By The Viper
Episode 3: The Nimbus Cloud of Roshi

Bulma and Goku continue their way to the sea to drop off Turtle, but they suddenly come across a huge Bear.  Asking for the turtle and not Bulma and Goku, Bulma
tries to give up Turtle to the monster.  Goku refuses to do so, and fights the Bear instead.  After a few seconds, Goku lands a hard punch on the bear’s
forehead and finishes him off with ease.  Goku, Bulma, and Turtle finally make it to the beach, and Goku puts Turtle in the ocean.  Turtle says that he has a gift
to give Goku, and tells them to wait on the beach. 

Back at Pilaf’s, the Emperor himself learns that a dragonball is in the posession of an old hermit named Roshi on a secluded island.  He sends Mai and Shao to

collect the Dragonball, but comes with them for supervision. Back at the beach, Turtle finally returns with an old man on his back.  The man introduces himself as Roshi, the Turtle hermit.  As a gift for finding Turtle, Roshi gives Goku a magic carpet, but
realizes it is in for dry cleaning.  Roshi instead gives Goku a special flying cloud, known as the Nimbus cloud.  Roshi explains that only those who are pure of
heart can ride it.  Roshi tries to get on, but falls right through.  Goku, on the other hand, fits perfectly, and starts flying all over the place. Pilaf, Shao, and Mai finally land on Roshi’s island. Pilaf tries knocking and impersonating a mailman, but
realizes no one is home.  Pilaf tries to use a universal key to open the door to Roshi’s house, but Mai and Shao show Pilaf a window that has already been
opened.  Back at the beach, Bulma asks for a gift from Roshi.  Although Turtle says only Goku saved him. Roshi decides to give Bulma a gift.  Bulma notices the
dragonball on Roshi’s necklace, and asks him for that.  Roshi tries to get something in return, but end up in vain.  Not knowing it’s powers, Roshi gives it to
Bulma, and goes back home with Turtle.  Goku and Bulma continue on their quest, now with one more dragonball to the collection.  Meanwhile, Pilaf and his henchmen
are still not able to find the Dragonball after tearing apart Roshi’s house.  Roshi arrives, and when he asks what’s up, Pilaf tells him to hand over the dragonball.  After some thinking, Roshi realizes that he gave it to Bulma.  Pilaf, Shao, and Mai head off to
find her, and ask Roshi to push their plane back in the water.  Roshi does so, but not before poking a hole in it!
