Dragon Ball GT Summary
Ball GT closes the popular series in Dragon Ball with an
introduction to another set of dragon balls and the
reintroduction of Emperor Pilaf.
Dragon Ball GT, short for Dragon Ball Grand Tour,
first aired in Japan on January 7, 1996.
Akira Toriyama, the creator of the Dragon Ball
series, did not lead in the production of this series.
It is believed that the only reason for the
creation of GT was so that people would still be
interested when the new Dragon Ball Video game “Dragon
Ball: Final Bout” was released.
Since the success Dragon Ball, new producers lead
in the productions of GT without Akira Toriyama heading
in the productions.
The first few episodes were not popular with the
viewers for the lack of action and story line, interest
picked up as the Z warriors traveled across the galaxy.

Gohan is married to Videl, Mr. Satan’s daughter, and have a daughter of their own, Pan.

After stopping for a few minutes, Goku walks around the tower to notice Emperor Pilaf has grabbed the Ultimate Dragon Balls that was in an urn and has called the dragon. The Ultimate Dragon Balls, also known as the Black Star Dragon Ball, was created by Kami-sama before he was purified. Emperor Pilaf is outraged to see how big Goku has gotten and believes that he is here to stop him from making his wish again. Pilaf orders Shuu and Mai to shoot the robot missiles, which was easily caught by Goku. Pilaf, blinded by his rage insanely wishes that Goku was smaller so he would be easier to defeat. The dragon says “So be it” turning Goku into a child again. After the wish is granted, the Dragon Balls are scattered across the universe. Dende and Mr. Popo are confused as they come across a child Goku. Kaiou-sama mentions the only way to reverse the wish is to gather the Ultimate Dragon Balls, and to keep the world from blowing up.

Another dragon comes out of the dragon balls, and tells the people he doesn’t care about the wishes and creates 7 dragons, each with a dragon ball. Kaiou-bit mentions to everyone that the reason behind this is that each time they make a wish, evil is brought into the ball and causes the ball to crack like it did today. Kaiou-bit mentions if Bulma never did create the dragon radar, this would have never happened but Bulma says that she couldn’t do it all on her own, Goku helped her. Goku, thinking that he had a part on this, tells them that he has to do what he has to do. Goku takes off after each of the dragon to defeat them.

Another summary on DB GT:
In Kami's Lookout Gokuh and Ubuu are having a massive battle. It just about destroys
the whole floating planet. We see how much stronger Ubuu has become since DBZ. From the
side of Kami's Lookout there are three robot's that hole people in them. Non other than
the great Emperor Pilaf and his two trusty assistants Myuu and Shou. They have come to
find that ultimate Dragonballs. We see how much Pilaf has aged since Dragonball. Gokuh and
Ubuu come out of the battle area to be met by Dende and Mr. PoPo. Gokuh and Ubuu faint
from exhaustion. Now, Pilaf finds the Dragonballs and explains to his assistance that they
were made before Piccolo split so these Dragonballs are twice as powerful. Ubuu says
good-bye to every one and then leaves. Gokuh eats a huge meal and then says farewell to
his friends. Pilaf has gathered all the dragonballs together and has summoned Super
Shenron. He is s giants red Dragon that looks transparent. Gokuh is leaving and runs into
Pilaf. Pilaf's assistance knows who he is immediately, but Pilaf is uncertain. Gokuh
does not notice the Shenron and implies what Pilaf is doing. When Pilaf finds out that
this is the same Son Gokuh who has stopped him from ruling the world in the past he goes
nuts and fires missiles at Gokuh. Gokuh easily stops them and this gets Pilaf very upset.
Pilaf says that he wishes that Gokuh was a kid again so that he could beat him. Well,
Shenron takes this wish seriously and turns Gokuh back into a child. Shenron then bids a
farewell and the Dragonballs fly off. Kaio, Dende, Popo, and Gokuh are talking and Kaio
and Popo reveal that these Dragonballs scatter all over the Universe and not just all over
the planet. Gokuh though does not seem to mind much and flies away. Kaio utters though
that Gokuh does not realize how serious this is.
