Episode 30 - Hunt for a Dragon Ball

DragonBall Z
#30-Hunt for a DragonBall

This episode starts out with Bulma and the gang in the namek’s ship.  They are looking for a DragonBall which is in a tree.  Some dinosaur hits the tree and the DragonBall falls out.  The greedy dinosaur picks it up and scatters off.  The gang is about to run after it but the namek stops them.  He says that it is to dangerous.  And explains the lake of acid in front of them.  They fly over it and then they see the dinosaurs skeleton.  They then come to the shocking conclusion that the DragonBall is at the bottom of the lake.  So the namke says their is only one way of getting the DragonBall.  Someone small enough to fit inside of the suit that could withstand the acid would have to go down to the bottom.  So Gohan has to go, but there is a catch.  He only has 10 seconds to get it or it will eat throguh the suit.  He jumps in anyway.  So he goes down and finds the DragonBall.  He then has to swim up, because the cord that would have pulled him up had the acid eat through it.  He can’t get up in time so he uses his Kamehameha attack to give him a boost.  He gets up just in time.  (Yeah right, he was down there for 40 seconds I counted)  So Bulma and the rest rejoice and head out for the next one.

Scene Change-They soon find themselves in a desert.  They look at the dragon radar and find that the DragonBall is moving very fast.  They  figure out what is happening when they see a huge twister.  So they decide to wait for it to die.  The namek tells them that it won’t die.  So Krillen and Gohan get powered up to take it down.  But Bulma interupts them and tells them they might destroy the DragonBall.  So they don’t, they just wonder what to do.  But Gohan Flies up to the top of the tornado and comes down the center of it.  He then grabs the DragonBall.  To get out of the Tornado he uses an attack and he comes down slowly.

SC-We see Vegeta in the tub type thing.  He is slowly recovering from his long battle.

SC-It is in the middle of the night as we see our hero sneaking down the stairs.  Goku is escaping from the hospital!

SC-Bulma and the gang are now headed into a forest are to find the next DragonBall.  Krillen can’t see a thing so he jumps up to grab a branch.  Once he grabs it and pulls it down, they hear a screech.  But Krillen and everyone keeps on walking up the path.  They then hear another screech and Krillen drops his new torh.  All of the sudden the ground starts to shake.  It ends up that Krillen, Bulma and the others are on a huge bird.  They start to fly up.  Another bird then the one they are on spots our heros and tries to eat them.  But it doesn’t succeed, so they are still flying up.  They then see castle, and to make it worse another bird spots them.  So Krillen tells everyone to jump.

SC-Goku is in his old outfit.  And he looks determined to train.

SC-Krillen and GOhan have the Dragon Radar and are searching around the

platou.  They then come up to a window which shows a white giant.  Bulma and the namek then join krillen.  She notices the sleeping giant and screams.  Krillen tells her to be quite.  They all go in, and start searching for the DragonBall.  Bulma jumps down by the giant’s head and starts looking around his pillow.  The snake the giant owns decides to investigate its new visitor.  Bulma has to cover her mouth to keep from screaming.  Then the giant shifts in his bed to uncover the DragonBall.  But there is a catch, they have to pry it off of the giant’s earing.  After extensive tugging they got it off.  Time to rejoice, wait the giant is up and he is angry.

SC-We see Chi-Chi getting enfuriated by the escape of her husband. SC-Luckily our evil freind had a toy plane that really wasn’t a toy for us.  Bulma is trying to start it up while the giant is marching towards them. Krillen tries to rush her but she told him to go and create a diversion.  Goahn and Krillen are being punched at when Bulma flies by to save the day. SC-Goku is hoping,running and flying around happily. SC-The re-juvenator that Vegeta is in is now getting drained.  Vegeta then wakes up and flexes his right arm.
