He now plans to take revenge on the remaining Saiyans, Goku, Vegeta, Trunks, and Gohan. He creates a machine that will emit Destron, a gas that could destroy all life on Earth. The Saiyans, plus Piccolo, only have 72 hours to destroy these machines and find Dr. Lychee. When trying to destroy the final machine, Vegeta discovers that it is protected by an impenetrable energy barrier. Frieza, Cooler, Turles and Lord Slug appear and engage the heroes one on one. The heroes continue to lose against their foes. It is revealed that these ghost warriors are made of Destron gas and cannot be beaten unless the gas is neutralized. The barrier is destroyed by Bulma, who also came with the antidote for the Destron gas. She then manages to stop the gas. The heroes kill Frieza and the others. The heroes track down Dr. Lychee on the Dark Planet and engage him, discovering that his ghost warriors are generated by a machine called Hatchiyack, a device powered by the Tuffles' hatred for the Saiyans. It is also revealed that Dr. Lychee is a ghost warrior himself, generated by Hatchiyack. When Vegeta vaporizes Lychee, preventing him from re-materializing, the hate of the last remaining Tuffle causes Hatchiyack to exceed its limit. Hatchiyack appears in a powerful android body, whose power is said to match or perhaps even exceed that of Broly, according to Goku. Hatchiyack devastates the heroes until the Saiyans (after having transformed into their Super Saiyan states) and Piccolo combine their powers together into one massive wave of energy, ending the threat of the Dr. Lychee. At last Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Trunks and Piccolo return to Earth just as the Dark Planet explodes.

2 - Reunions 81989-05-03After being away for five years, Bulma is invited to Kame House, where Master Roshi and Krillin have been living. Goku arrives shortly, and introduces his son, Gohan, to everyone. Master Roshi points out that Goku named him after his Grandpa Gohan. Bulma is impressed with how proper Gohan's speech is, in light of who his parents are. Goku tells her how Chi-Chi is quite strict about the education Gohan receives, and how she does not let him train Gohan.
3 - Unlikely Alliance 81989-05-10In the previous episode, we see that Raditz effortlessly defeats his younger brother Goku and kidnaps Gohan. He asks Goku to kill one hundred Earthlings and put them on the beach, if he wanted to ever see his son again. Unwilling to complete the task, Goku sat there and pondered on how get his son back when his archrival, Piccolo, shows up.
4 - Piccolo’s Plan 81989-05-17As Goku and Piccolo charge towards Raditz to attack, he kicks out backwards and sends them rolling away. He then fires a Double Sunday that destroys Piccolo's left arm. Piccolo, now with only one arm, reveals that he has a secret ace up his sleeve, but will need some time before he can charge up this new attack.
5 - Gohan’s Rage 81989-05-24Gohan bursts through Raditz's Space Pod, shocking Piccolo and Raditz. Goku tells Gohan to run away, but Gohan is too deeply enraged to make sense of anything. Raditz, reading Gohan's Power Level to be well above his own, begins to panic.
6 - No Time Like the Present 81989-06-07Kami, having preserved Goku's body for resurrection, escorts the late hero into the presence of the gigantic King Yemma, the judge of Heaven and Hell. He chooses to train with the great King Kai, a being whose position is above even that of King Yemma, before being resurrected by the Dragon Balls.
7 - Day 1 81989-06-14Piccolo leaves Gohan in the middle of Break Wasteland, saying that he will be back in six months to teach him how to fight; if he cannot learn to survive on his own, he does not deserve to live, much less fight. While Gohan bawls to himself on Earth, Goku tries to save some time by leaping entire sections of the very twisty road, but catches his foot on an incredibly sharp scale of the Snake Way and nearly falls into the depths of Hell below.
8 - Gohan Goes Bananas! 81989-06-21Krillin, unable to break the news to Chi-Chi and the Ox-King about Gohan and Goku, returns to Kame House, where Master Roshi and Bulma are waiting for him. Yajirobe then shows up with a message from Korin: assemble the remaining Z Fighters at the top of Korin Tower, as Kami has decided to train them.
9 - The Strangest Robot 81989-06-28A group of wild animals chases Gohan when he falls into a hole in the desert, where he discovers an ancient probe robot in the cavernous ruins below. After Gohan reactivates the robot, it tells him not to disturb it, but reconsiders when the boy starts to cry and, reluctantly, watches over him, as he is still dependent on others. Gohan tries to dig the robot out of the sand as it tells him how, thirty years previous, it had been buried by an earthquake as it was excavating the ruins.
10 - A New Friend 81989-07-05For the past five years, Yamcha has been working on the side as a professional baseball player for the Taitans. In the middle of a game, he is pulled out of a brawl by Krillin with the news of Goku's death and the upcoming attack of Raditz's companions. The two of them, and Puar, meet up with Bulma, who still has not forgiven Yamcha for their last breakup, and leave for their rendezvous with Kami in one of her capsule hovercars.
11 - Terror on Arlia 81989-07-12Goku continues his seemingly endless journey on Snake Way. Deep in space, the Saiyan warriors, Vegeta and Nappa, make a stop on a planet called Arlia and "become prisoners" to their tyrant king. When they are called before the king, they break their bonds and kill the guards. The king summons his giant monster on them, but they easily take care of them both. The other Arlians are grateful of the Saiyans for killing their tyrant king. They proclaim that Vegeta and Nappa will always receive a hero's welcome on Arlia. Despite all of this, Vegeta destroys the entire planet.
12 - Global Training 81989-07-19Gohan trains hard in the wilderness, while Piccolo trains himself. Meanwhile, Krillin and Bulma are still trying to find Tien and Chiaotzu so they can begin training with Kami. Unfortunately for Tien and Chiaotzu, Launch isn't very willing to part with her company.
13 - Goz and Mez 81989-07-26Goku accidentally falls from Snake Way into Hell, where he finds a fruit tree. Goku is famished, so he tries to take a piece. However, the tree belongs to King Yemma, and the two oni there, Goz and Mez, will do anything it takes to stop Goku from acquiring the fruit. They explain that it is a special fruit that will keep whoever eats it full for a long time. Goz and Mez have their own tests to give. The first wasn't very successful (even though he won), but the second was. To their great surprise, Goku wins the race. Frustrated, they direct Goku to a "shortcut" back to Snake Way. Goku reveals that he has stolen a piece of fruit from the tree. Unfortunately, this leads back to King Yemma, and Goku must start all over. However, after eating the fruit he is much faster and will not get as tired.
14 - Princess Snake 81989-08-02Even though Goku has to start all over on Snake Way, he quickly catches up to where he was last thanks to King Yemma's fruit. He sees a castle in up ahead, and assumes it must belong to King Kai. He enters the castle, only to find out that it belongs to Princess Snake. The Princess finds Goku very attractive, so she does everything she can to keep him there. Goku tries several times to leave, but finally, she is forced to show her true form. In her new, horrible form, she captures Goku, but he is able to break free and continue down Snake Way.
15 - Dueling Piccolos 81989-08-09Piccolo splits himself in half, and the two forms fight each other. Piccolo uses this method to train by himself at a high intensity. Meanwhile, Gohan sleds down a sandy hill. After he crashes, he tries to find a way out of wherever he is to his mother (he thinks his home is close by) After coming to the same spot he originally was at first, he realizes, he must be on an island. Brainstorming, he builds a boat, so he can pay a quick visit to his mother, whom he misses. As he drifts on the sea at night, a huge storm is heading Gohan's way, and he can't swim.
16 - Plight of The Children 81989-08-16Gohan was able to survive the storm, and he washes up on the shore. There he finds a group of orphans living on their own. The adults in the area are trying to capture them and take them to an orphanage. After telling them his goal, Pigero, their leader, designs a plan to get Gohan home, and get all of the orphans to a safe location. The adults come, and Pigero and Gohan are able to defend themselves against the adults, but Pigero suddenly realizes something: the children will be better off at the orphanage. Knowing this, he lets the adults capture the other orphans. He takes Gohan to the woods near his house, and then drives off. Gohan gets within sight of his home, but decides not to go in. He knows how important it is that he train for the Saiyans. Piccolo, hovering above him, sees all of this, and takes Gohan back.
17 - Pendulum Room Peril 81989-08-30Gohan's real training is about to begin, as Piccolo trains him in the martial arts. On Kami's Lookout, Yamcha, Tien, Krillin and Chiaotzu want to get the same training as Goku did. So, Mr. Popo takes them to the Pendulum Room where the past, present, and future intertwine. Krillin and the others use the room and are sent to Planet Vegeta in the past, facing two powerful Saiyan warriors. After a horrifying battle, the Z Fighters continue their training with more motivation.
18 - The End of Snake Way 81989-09-06After a rough day of training with Piccolo, Gohan rests for the next day. Gohan has a bad dream involving Raditz beating his father, and he suddenly wakes up. Gohan looks up at the moon which has mysteriously reappeared, and overcome by his nightmares of Goku's death, he losts control of himself and attacks Piccolo, who has arrived to see what's going on. Piccolo does his best to stop him, but once Gohan grows his tail back and changes into a Great Ape with another gaze at the moon, he was powerless to stop him. Piccolo tries to destroy the moon, but finds that it is a projection from Goku's old spaceship. Piccolo destroys the ship, reversing the transformation. Meanwhile, after a long trip, Goku finally makes it to King Kai's planet, and finds a friendly little monkey, whom he believes to be King Kai.
19 - Defying Gravity 81989-09-13As Gohan's training gets harder every day, Goku's training with King Kai has just begun. He has about 88 days to prepare for the Saiyans. It turns out that the monkey is not King Kai, but it is his pet. His first task is to catch the monkey, whose name is Bubbles, but it's not going to be easy. The gravity on this tiny planet is 10 times that of Earth, making it hard for Goku to even stand up. Just when Goku is losing hope, he gets inspired after learning that his people withstand different fighting conditions. After three weeks, Goku conquers the gravity and catches Bubbles.
20 - Goku’s Ancestors 81989-09-20Goku's next task in King Kai's training is to hit the grasshopper, Gregory, with a heavy mallet. After a long chase, it seems that Goku can't hit Gregory yet. While taking a break, King Kai tells Goku about the Saiyan people. They were a warrior race who shared a planet with the smarter, though weaker, Tuffles. Eventually, the Saiyans overpowered the Tuffles and stole their technology. Willing to stop the Saiyans from destroying Earth, Goku continues his training and manages to hit Gregory. Now King Kai will train Goku himself in the ways of the Kaio-Ken.
21 - Counting Down 81989-09-27After 70 days of hard training with King Kai, Goku has gotten much stronger and faster. But, the Saiyans are going to arrive the next day, so Goku speaks to Master Roshi telepathically through King Kai. He asks him to use the Dragon Balls to wish him back. Suddenly, King Kai realizes that he forgot to account for the time it will take Goku to go back down Snake Way. With no time to waste, Goku leaves King Kai's planet and races down Snake Way.
22 - Darkest Day 81989-10-11After a year of space travel, the two Saiyans, Vegeta and Nappa, arrive on Earth. To celebrate their arrival, Nappa completely destroys East City with ease by creating an energy blast. Sensing their power, the Z Fighters mobilize for an attack. The Saiyans search for any large power levels with their scouters, and they head toward Piccolo and Gohan. Just when Krillin shows up to help, the Saiyans also arrive. Piccolo learns that he is a Namekian, because Vegeta recognizes the green skin that is typical of Namekians. Yajirobe knows the threat as well, but instead of stopping them, he is posing as the leader of the earth's Special Forces to get food.
23 - Saibamen Attack 81989-10-18Just to have some fun, Vegeta and Nappa grow some weird creatures, called Saibamen, to test their opponents' strength. Suddenly, Tien, Chiaotzu, and Yamcha arrive to join the battle. Tien is the first to go up against one of the Saibamen. Thanks to his training, Tien easily beats one of them. Angry at his failure, Vegeta destroys the losing Saibaman. Yamcha is up against the next Saibaman, and it seems he, too, is stronger, but his opponent grabs Yamcha and self-destructs, killing them both.
24 - Power of Nappa 81989-10-25Yamcha has been killed by the Saibaman's surprise explosion. Back at the Kame House, everyone mourns his death, especially Bulma and Puar. Angered by losing him, Krillin fights the remaining Saibamen. He fires a powerful energy attack that completely destroys the remaining Saibamen. However, the real battle is about to begin, because the Saiyan Nappa steps up to fight. Nappa is clearly much stronger than any of them.
25 - Sacrifice 81989-11-01As Tien gets beaten up by Nappa, Chiaotzu latches on to Nappa's back and explodes after a telepathic goodbye to Tien. As the smoke clears, it is discovered Nappa has only been slightly wounded by Chiaotzu's attack. Piccolo and Krillin do their best against Nappa, but the Saiyan is much too strong for them. Using all the power he has, Tien fires an attack to avenge his fallen friend, but it is still not enough to stop the rampaging Nappa. Even though the attack had no effect, Tien dies of exhaustion claiming that he has failed.
26 - Nappa's Rampage 81989-11-08With Tien gone, only Piccolo, Krillin, and Gohan are left to fight, and they begin to wonder when Goku will show up. They tell Vegeta that Goku is far more powerful than any of them, and the Saiyan Prince can't resist the thought of a better fight, as he has grown bored of the relatively weak Earthlings. He tells Nappa that they will wait three hours for Goku. But instead of standing around for three hours, Nappa flies around the world destroying everything in his path to kill some time. Goku arrives on Earth, but he is far away from the battlefield. The three hours are up, so Vegeta tells Nappa to continue the fight.
27 - Nimbus Speed 81989-11-22As Goku heads toward the battlefield, Piccolo, Krillin, and Gohan devise a plan to stop Nappa: they plan to pull his tail, which will weaken him enough to take him out. As Piccolo grabs Nappa's tail, Gohan rushes to finish the fight. However, it seems that Nappa and Vegeta have evolved past their weaknesses, and they are no longer crippled when their tail is pulled. With their plan a failure, Nappa begins to pound on Piccolo and Krillin. Only Gohan is left to fight, and the young Saiyan is holding his own against Nappa. Enraged by Gohan's attack, Nappa fires a blast at Gohan that could finish him off.
28 - Goku's Arrival 81989-11-29To save his only friend, Piccolo makes the ultimate sacrifice, and dives in front of Gohan to block Nappa's attack. As Piccolo dies, he tells Gohan that he is his only friend and how sorry he was about going so hard on him during training. With Piccolo dead, Kami and the Dragon Balls are also gone, meaning that no one can be wished back. When all hope seems lost for Earth, Goku finally arrives. After giving Gohan and Krillin a Senzu bean, Goku learns what happened to his friends. Angered, Goku takes out his frustration on the hulking Nappa.
29 - Lesson Number One 81989-12-06Goku is able to easily beat Nappa, thanks to King Kai's training. With a measured power level in the thousands, he is vastly superior to the man who so easily defeated his friends. Goku avenges all of his friends. Having seen enough of the fight, Vegeta orders Nappa to stop and let him fight Goku. To have some more fun, Nappa decides to attack Gohan and Krillin, only to be stopped by Goku's Kaio-ken attack. Unable to move, Nappa asks Vegeta for help, but the cruel prince does not tolerate weakness. He kills his partner with a sadistic display of power.
30 - Goku vs. Vegeta 81989-12-13Goku instructs Krillin and Gohan to leave the battlefield, because he doesn't want them to get hurt. With no one in their way, Goku and Vegeta begin their fight for the fate of the Earth. Even with Goku using his Kaio-ken technique, Vegeta is still more powerful. Goku has no choice but to try a Kaio-ken x2, but even with this increase in power, he still can't overpower Vegeta. His only choice is to try a Kaio-ken x3, but the incredible surge in power could destroy his body.
31 - Saiyan Sized Secret 81989-12-20Thanks to the Kaio-ken x3 technique, Goku has the upper hand against Vegeta, but the Saiyan Prince will not give up so easily. He decides that if he can't beat Goku, he will destroy the Earth. He flies high up in the air and fires his Galick Gun attack. Goku unleashes the Kamehameha wave, and the two energy blasts meet in midair. Goku and Vegeta pour all of their energy into this attack, and after a long struggle, Vegeta's blast is pushing Goku's back, even with Goku using the Kaio-ken x3 attack. With no choice left, Goku uses a Kaio-ken x4 attack, and with the extra power, he is able to blast Vegeta into space. However, Vegeta is able to recover, and he decides to become a Great Ape for his rematch with Goku. The evil Saiyan Prince starts searching for the full moon, but couldn't find it (it's because the moon was destroyed by Piccolo before the Vegeta and Nappa's arrival). Thinking Goku must have blown up the moon just to prevent him from transforming, Vegeta returns to Earth where Goku is completely spent and claims to have a trick up his sleeve. After telling Goku the origin of how Saiyans transform into Great Apes through Blutz Waves: the power of the moon that reaches 17 million zenos, he creates and launches an artificial moon into the sky. Absorbing the Blutz Waves reflecting from the artificial moon, Vegeta begins to transform into a Great Ape as Goku looked on in horror. Meanwhile, Krillin and Gohan feel the tremendous surge in energy coming from the battlefield, and decide to head back.
32 - Spirit Bomb Away! 81990-01-17By creating an artificial moon with a specialized ball of energy completed with Blutz Waves, Vegeta transforms into a Great Ape. But unlike most other Saiyans, he has complete control of himself while in this transformed state. Luckily, Goku has one last attack that could finish Vegeta: the Spirit Bomb. As Gohan and Krillin return to the battlefield, Goku is able to create the bomb. Vegeta, however, is able to prevent Goku from using it. With no energy left, Goku is now at the mercy of Vegeta.
33 - Hero in The Shadows 81990-01-24Gohan and Krillin arrive at the battlefield, but have to be quick to save Goku, who is being pounded mercilessly. Krillin devises a plan to stop Vegeta: cut off the Saiyan Prince's tail. As Krillin prepares to fire the Destructo Disk and Gohan distracts Vegeta. But, the Saiyan Prince is too smart for their tricks, and foils their plot. Suddenly, Yajirobe appears out of nowhere and cuts Vegeta's tail off. Vegeta reverts to his normal form, but he is still too powerful to be stopped by the remaining Z Fighters.
34 - Krillin's Offensive 81990-01-31As Gohan fights against Vegeta, Goku gives Krillin the part of the Spirit Bomb that he was able to save. As Krillin prepares to unleash the ball, King Kai says not to use his eyes to throw it, but to feel it out. Sensing the right moment, Krillin fires the bomb, but Vegeta is able to dodge it. Goku telepathically communicates with Gohan, telling his son to redirect the blast at Vegeta, who has jumped into the air. Gohan is able to aim it directly at Vegeta, and lands a direct hit. However, Vegeta falls back down to Earth, and recovers from the blast. He blew away the Z Fighters with a giant explosion of energy, but finds that they withstood the blast, separated from each other. Vegeta is about to destroy them one by one starting with Gohan, when he notices in horror that Gohan's tail has grown back.
35 - Mercy 81990-02-07Vegeta attempted to rip off Gohan's tail to prevent him from looking at his artificial moon and transforming, when Yajirobe jumps in and stops him by cutting through his armor with his sword, resulting in a heroic distraction. Gohan recovers, and then on Goku's telepathic commands, he looks at Vegeta's moon and transforms into a Great Ape. However, unlike Vegeta, Gohan can't control himself in this state. But quickly stopped by Goku and Krillin's cries for him to defeat Vegeta, Gohan quickly regains some of his consciousness and resumes the fight, pounding on Vegeta. Vegeta is able to cut off Gohan's tail in midair, but as Gohan falls to Earth, he lands on Vegeta and crushes him before finally reverting to his normal form. Vegeta pulls out his remote and summons his spaceship. As he crawls toward it, Krillin attempts to kill him with Yajirobe's sword. Goku tells him to stop, and let Vegeta go. His life spared, Vegeta promises the Z Fighters revenge when he will return as he leaves the Earth in his spaceship for good. The battle with Vegeta is over.
36 - Picking Up The Pieces 81990-02-14The exhausted Goku, Krillin, and Gohan won their battle, and Bulma, Chi Chi, and the others arrive to help their friends. Learning of the death of Yamcha, Chiaotzu, Tien, Piccolo, and Kami, the Z Fighters were upset because without the Dragon Balls the others can't be wished back to life again, but Krillin has an idea. He overheard Vegeta saying that it was the Nameks who created the Dragon Balls, so they decide to go to the planet Namek. The only problem is that it will take 4339.2516 years to reach Namek. They decide to use Nappa's spaceship, because Saiyan spaceships travel much faster.
37 - Plans For Departure 81990-02-21Bulma destroys the Saiyan ship by accidentally pressing the self-destruct button on its remote. Mr. Popo arrives, and tells them that he knows of another spaceship. It's the Namekian ship that Kami used to come to Earth when he was a boy. Hesitant, but willing, Bulma goes with Mr. Popo despite her fear over him.
38 - Nursing Wounds 81990-02-28Because the ship works on voice commands given in the Namekian language, Mr. Popo teaches Bulma a little of the language so she can operate the spaceship. Meanwhile, Goku, Krillin, and Gohan recover from their wounds. Because Goku's injuries are worse, he has to stay in the hospital after Gohan and Krillin are completely recovered. Gohan and Krillin decide to accompany Bulma on her journey to planet Namek.
39 - Friends or Foes? 81990-03-07Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma blast off to Namek. On the way, they run into what appears to be an invisible spaceship. They enter the ship, only to discover that it's full of traps. After getting through what seemed to be all the traps, Bulma, Gohan, and Krillin feast on a table - full of food. They soon figured out that was a mistake after the children with guns holding Bulma hostage came into the picture.

It is preceded by the Saiyan Saga and succeeded by the Frieza Saga.
1 - Held Captive 81990-03-14Gohan and the others are captured by a band of space pirates, who think they are the lackies of a villain named Frieza, who sent some of his forces to take over their planet long ago. Suddenly, the station heads into an asteroid field, and Bulma runs toward the cockpit. She pushes the pilot out of the way, and guides the ship out of the asteroids safely. After realizing that they're not enemies, the pirates let Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma go.
2 - Look Out Below 81990-03-21Thanks to the kids' help, Bulma uses a shortcut to get to Namek. After a crash landing on the planet's surface, two Namekians nurse them back to health. They offer to help the three in their search for the Dragon Balls.

Back on Earth, Goku escapes from the hospital and begins training. Meanwhile, Vegeta's ship has reached its destination, and doctors have begun their work on him.
4 - A Friendly Surprise 81990-04-11Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma are one Dragon Ball away from making their wish. But during their search for the seventh Dragon Ball, their two Namekian friends reveal that they are not Namekians at all. In fact, they're not even on Namek. Meanwhile, Vegeta learns that Frieza has traveled to Namek to gather the Dragon Balls. Not wanting to be beaten to the punch, Vegeta immediately blasts off for Namek.
5 - Brood of Evil 81990-04-18The two "Namekians" reveal that they have been stuck on this planet since their ship broke down, and they have been planning to steal Bulma's ship. They read their minds after her ship crashed, and so they projected images of Namekians over their true forms. Gohan, Bulma and Krillin, however, are able to escape the clutches of the two aliens, and continue their trip to Namek. After a long journey, Gohan and the others celebrate their arrival on Namek, but their party is cut short by the arrival of Vegeta. However, he's not even their worst problem, because Frieza is also on Namek.
6 - Frieza Strikes! 81990-04-25Frieza and his henchmen are already in possession of four Dragon Balls. Freiza has learned of Vegeta's arrival, so he sends one of his henchmen, Cui, after him. Meanwhile, Gohan and Krillin sees two of Frieza's henchmen looking for the Dragon Balls, but they get beaten up easily. Cui believes that he is stronger than Vegeta, but hasn't calculated Vegeta's power after his time on Earth. The two engage in battle, but Cui is destroyed effortlessly.
7 - Defying Orders 81990-05-02With Bulma safely hiding in a cave, Gohan and Krillin fly to the nearby Namek village to investigate. Crouching behind a rock, they see Frieza and his henchmen trying to steal the fifth Dragon Ball. Back on Earth, Master Roshi tells Goku everything that happened on Namek and asks for Goku's help, but he's still not healed yet. Yajirobe arrives with a bag of Senzu beans for Goku. Now that he's healed, he flies to Capsule Corp. where Dr. Brief has made a replica of his spaceship, which includes a gravity chamber to train in on his way to Namek. Goku immediately blasts off for Namek.
8 - Namek's Defense 81990-05-09The evil Frieza and his henchmen try to persuade the Namekian elder of the village to hand over the Dragon Ball by killing most of the villagers. Gohan, who can't watch the innocent Namekians get murdered anymore, is about to fly in and save them, when three more Namekians appear. These three are strong enough to defeat Frieza's weaker henchmen, so the evil tyrant sends one of his best fighters, Dodoria, after them.
9 - The Hunted 81990-05-16Dodoria steps in to fight, and he easily kills the Namekian warriors. With no other choice, the elder gives the fifth ball to Frieza, but despite his cooperation, he and the Namekian boy, Cargo, are killed. Before Dodoria can finish off the last Namekian boy, Gohan loses control and steps in to save him. He grabs the boy and takes off, with Krillin at his side. Dodoria speeds off after them.
10 - The Prince Fights Back 81990-05-23By using Tien's Solar Flare technique, Krillin, Gohan, and the Namekian boy, Dende, are able to escape from Dodoria. As the pink alien tries to get back to Frieza, Vegeta shows up, ready to settle the score between him and Dodoria. Dodoria is taken by surprise by Vegeta's new strength, and the Saiyan Prince easily overpowers him. Pleading for his life, Dodoria barters information for his freedom. He tells Vegeta that it was actually Frieza, not an asteroid, that destroyed Planet Vegeta. Although taken aback at this new revelation, he kills Dodoria anyway.
11 - Unexpected Problem 81990-05-30With Vegeta stronger, and Frieza afoot, Krillin is having doubts if he and the others will be able to collect the Dragon Balls. Bulma hears from her father that Goku is already on his way to Namek. Meanwhile, Goku is training aboard his spaceship at 20x the earth's gravity. Suddenly, an asteroid collides with his ship, which aims it directly into a star. Goku is forced to summon every ounce of strength that he has in order to blast his ship back on course. No longer needing a scouter to sense energy, Vegeta quickly finds the next Dragon Ball. Vegeta threatens the elder, another Namekian jumps in to protect his elder and dies.
12 - Vegeta Has a Ball 81990-06-06Vegeta wipes out the entire village and takes the Dragon Ball. He then hides the Dragon Ball in the water nearby, for safekeeping. Sensing the nearby destruction, Krillin and Gohan deduce that Vegeta has found the sixth Dragon Ball. With only one left, Dende and Krillin take off toward the Namekian leader, Guru. It is this Eldest Namekian who holds the seventh Dragon Ball. Meanwhile King Kai tells Goku that his friends have made it to his place and to not face Frieza.
13 - The Past and the Future 81990-06-20As Goku steps up his training, King Kai tells him that Yamcha, Tien, Chiaotzu, and Piccolo have come to train with him. However, King Kai has discovered that Frieza is on Namek, and warns Goku not go near him. Back on Namek, as Krillin and Dende head towards the Eldest Namek, Zarbon, one of Frieza's high-level henchmen, finds Vegeta, and intends to destroy him. Vegeta shows off his newfound strength by easily beating him up. However, Zarbon claims he has a trick up his sleeve.
14 - Zarbon's Special Surprise 81990-06-27Realizing he is no match for Vegeta's increased power, Zarbon has no choice but to reveal his true power, transforming into a hideous reptilian beast. In this form, he is far more powerful, and begins to pound Vegeta. With a mighty stroke, he blasts Vegeta to the bottom of a lake, and he is presumed dead.
15 - Guru's Gift 81990-07-04Once they finally arrive at their destination, Krillin and Dende meet the Eldest Namek, Guru, and his bodyguard Nail, who closely resembles Piccolo. The wise old Namekian gives Krillin the last Dragon Ball, and, upon seeing that he is pure-hearted, unlike Frieza, also awakens hidden powers within him. As Krillin heads back to the others, Zarbon informs Frieza that he killed Vegeta. When Frieza finds out that Zarbon only assumes that Vegeta is dead, he makes him go back and find Vegeta. Zarbon arrives at their battle site, pulls Vegeta out of the water, and brings him back to Frieza's ship. Dende arrives and tells Nail what has happened.
16 - Piccolo vs. Everyone 81990-07-18As Goku trains harder for Namek, Yamcha, Tien, and Chiaotzu complete King Kai's first test. Even Piccolo helps out on the second test. Back on Namek, Frieza's men are working to revive Vegeta, but he's still unconscious from his battle with Zarbon. Meanwhile, Krillin is still on his way back to Gohan and Bulma.
17 - Zarbon's Mission 81990-08-01Vegeta has recovered, and with no one watching him, he breaks out of his medical chamber and hides. He creates a diversion to get Frieza and Zarbon away from the five Dragon Balls. He goes into the main control room that contains the Dragon Balls, blasts a hole in the ship, and escapes. Furious over the loss of the Dragon Balls, Frieza orders Zarbon to find Vegeta and the Dragon Balls in one hour, or he will die. Vegeta finds a suitable hiding spot for the five Dragon Balls. He knows that Frieza and his henchmen have no scouters and can't sense energy signals, so they won't be able to find the five balls without combing the entire surface of the planet.
18 - Gohan, the Hunted 81990-08-08Gohan suddenly senses an energy signal from the village that Vegeta destroyed earlier, and goes to check it out. Krillin arrives back at the cave to give Bulma the good news, however, Zarbon and Vegeta followed him. They see that he has a Dragon Ball, and they decide to fight each other for it. Zarbon thinks that the fight will be as easy as it was the last time, but he doesn't know that a Saiyan's strength increases after he recovers from injury, and Vegeta makes short work of him. He then takes Krillin's Dragon Ball back to where he hid the other five. Meanwhile, Goku's ship hits a magnetic storm, which makes the gravity machine malfunction, causing it to increase the gravity to 100x normal. Though he can barely move, Goku sees this as a new challenge, and begins to train under the intense gravity.
19 - Unknown Enemies 81990-08-22With both of his main henchmen killed by Vegeta, Frieza summons his elite fighting squad, the Ginyu Force. Meanwhile, Gohan finds the Dragon Ball Vegeta hid underwater, and heads back to the cave with it. However, he notices Vegeta on his way back and drops to the ground, hiding until Vegeta threatens to blow the surrounding area to pieces. Gohan reveals himself and is able to keep Vegeta from realizing that the last dragon ball is hiding right behind him. Amazed at his luck, Gohan brings the Dragon Ball back to Krillin and Bulma. He and Krillin then take off toward Guru's place, leaving the Dragon Ball in Bulma's possession. They hope that Guru will awaken Gohan's hidden power. Vegeta returns to the village and discovers his dragon ball is missing and realizes that Gohan had taken it (also he draws a conclusion about the dragon radar), furious he returns to the cave but was too late as Gohan, Krillin and Bulma had already left.
20 - Destination: Guru 81990-08-29As Gohan and Krillin head to Guru's place to awaken Gohan's hidden powers, they leave Bulma behind to look after the Dragon Ball. Frustrated at his loss of five of the Dragon Balls, Frieza begins firing powerful energy blasts all over the surface of Namek. These explosions cause the Dragon Ball to roll away from Bulma and into the water nearby. Bulma takes her submarine into the water to find the lost ball, but there she finds more than she bargained for. As she reaches for the ball, a giant crab thinks she is trying to steal her eggs, and begins to attack Bulma. Bulma saves the crab from a falling rock, and the crab gives her the Dragon Ball.
21 - Bulma's Big Day 81990-09-05Bulma finally retrieves the Dragon Ball, only to be captured by two of Frieza's henchmen. She persuades them into find the rest of the Dragon Balls and making a wish themselves. Knowing she has more Dragon Ball knowledge than the two of them, they take her along. She leads them into the water, and right to the giant crab, who eats both of them.
22 - Hidden Power 81990-09-12Krillin and Gohan finally make it to Guru's place, but Vegeta has followed them, determined to get the last Dragon Ball. As Krillin tries to hold off Vegeta, Gohan has his hidden powers unleashed. Suddenly, they all sense an incredibly powerful force arriving on the planet. Vegeta recognizes it as the Ginyu Force. He tells Krillin and Gohan that the Ginyu Force is far more powerful even than himself. Vegeta says that if they are to defeat them and prevent Frieza from making his wish, they must work together.
23 - New Ally, New Problem 81990-09-19The Ginyu Force arrives on Namek. They are five incredibly powerful warriors named Guldo, Jeice, Recoome, Burter, and Captain Ginyu. These five fighters specialize in making flashy poses. Frieza tells them what the Dragon Balls are, and sends them after Vegeta. He tells Captain Ginyu to use his scouter to find the Dragon Balls while the other four deal with Vegeta. Meanwhile, Krillin is very reluctant to join forces with Vegeta, but Gohan knows that Goku would do it, so he convinces Krillin to help. The Ginyu Force quickly finds where Vegeta and the others are, and are prepared to fight.
24 - Guldo's Mind Binds 81990-09-26The weakest member of the Ginyu Force, Guldo, steps up to fight against the powered up Krillin and Gohan. Guldo quickly discovers that both Krillin and Gohan are far more powerful than he is, so he uses his special technique: he holds his breath, stopping time. Krillin and Gohan swoop in for the final blow several times, but every time Guldo stops time, and runs to a different location. He then reveals another trick: he uses his mysterious power to completely bind Krillin and Gohan. Unable to move, they are at the mercy of Guldo. Having seen enough, Vegeta steps in and quickly annihilates Guldo.
25 - Recoome Unleashed 81990-10-24The next fighter from the Ginyu Force is the massive Recoome. Vegeta pulls out all the stops, but he is no match for Recoome. The giant begins to toy with Vegeta, despite the pleas from the remaining members of the Ginyu Force. With Vegeta out of commission, Krillin steps in to save him. Though he does his best, he is easily defeated.
26 - Let the Battle Begin 81990-10-31Since Krillin and Vegeta can't fight anymore, Gohan is the only one left to fight. Captain Ginyu, leader of the Force, locates all seven Dragon Balls, and brings them to Frieza. Frieza tries to make his wish, but realizes he doesn't know what to do. He figures there must be a password. Meanwhile, Gohan gives it everything he has against Recoome, but the giant warrior is too strong. Just as he is about to finish off Gohan, everyone senses a gigantic power arriving on the planet. Krillin, Gohan, and Vegeta realize it is Goku.
27 - Goku's New Power 81990-11-07Goku has finally arrived on Namek, and finds Krillin, Gohan and Vegeta near death. He gives them all a Senzu bean, and prepares to fight the Ginyu Force. With a single blow to the gut, he puts Recoome out of commission. Goku's training at 100x normal gravity has exponentially increased his strength.
28 - A Legend Revealed 81990-11-14With Recoome beaten by one punch, the remaining two Ginyu Force members, Burter and Jeice, fight against Goku, but none of their speed attacks work against him. They try to hit him, but their punches seem to go through Goku. He is dodging so fast that it appears he isn't even moving. Vegeta believes that Goku has become the legendary Saiyan warrior, the Super Saiyan. If this is true, Goku would be the first Super Saiyan in millennia.
29 - Ginyu Assault 81990-11-21Goku easily beats Burter. Frightened, Jeice flies away to get Captain Ginyu. Vegeta then executes both Recoome and Burter, despite Goku's pleas. Meanwhile, Frieza heads off towards Guru's place, hoping to discover the secret to using the Dragon Balls. Goku, Vegeta, Krillin, and Gohan all sense that Frieza is on the move, but the Dragon Balls remain in their place. They recognize that this might be their only chance to make their wish.
30 - Incredible Force! 81990-11-28Once Captain Ginyu arrives, Vegeta leaves Goku behind to get the Dragon Balls for himself. Krillin and Gohan leave to get the Dragon Radar from Bulma so they can find the Balls before Vegeta. Jeice tells Captain Ginyu how powerful Goku is, but the Captain is confident he can beat him. Goku decides to skip the warmup and power up to his full strength immediately. As he is powering up, Jeice measures his power level on his scanner. He is shocked as the level continues to climb higher and higher, eventually surpassing Captain Ginyu's maximum. Captain Ginyu doesn't believe the scanner, and begins to fight with Goku.
31 - Frieza Approaches 81990-12-05Goku is obviously more powerful than Ginyu, but the Captain won't give up so easily. Meanwhile, Guru sends Dende to tell Krillin and Gohan the password to use the Dragon Balls. Frieza arrives at Guru's place, demanding to know the Dragon Balls' password. The last three Namekians arrive as well. But despite Nail's pleas, they about to fight Frieza, but the tyrant easily kills them. Though Nail informs him that the Dragon Balls would disappear, following Guru's death, Frieza confronts Guru to get the password anyway.
32 - Goku Is Ginyu and Ginyu Is Goku 81990-12-12Nail leads Frieza away from Guru's place so that he can't get hurt. He starts fighting Frieza, but it seems that he was unable to hold him up though he does to give time for Dende to deliver the Dragon Balls' password to the Z fighters. Gohan and Krillin get the Dragon Radar from Bulma and head towards Frieza's spaceship. Meanwhile, Goku is winning his fight against Captain Ginyu. Realizing he can't win, Captain Ginyu decides to use his special power: the Body Change. He severely wounded himself to Goku's horror, and shoots a beam of light out of his mouth and into Goku's: the two switch bodies. Ginyu, as Goku, then flies back towards Frieza's spaceship, leaving Goku in Ginyu's thrashed body behind.
33 - Calling the Eternal Dragon 81990-12-19Krillin and Gohan arrive at Frieza's spaceship and locate the Dragon Balls, unaware that Vegeta is not far away. As the two try to figure out what the password is, Jeice and Captain Ginyu, in Goku's body, arrive as well. The disguised Ginyu tries to trick Krillin into believing that he is Goku. Gohan, however, realizes that it is not the real Goku. Goku, in Captain Ginyu's destroyed body, arrives, and tells Krillin and Gohan what happened. Now it is up to Gohan and Krillin to defeat Captain Ginyu.
34 - Gohan Defeat Your Dad!! 81991-01-16Ginyu tries to power up with Goku's body, but it turns out what Goku's right, was that he can't reach its full potential, because he doesn't know how to unite body and mind. But even at a relatively low power, he can still overpower both Krillin and Gohan. Vegeta arrives, and begins to fight Jeice. Having recovered from severe injury, Vegeta has greatly increased his power, and easily overpowers and kills Jeice.
35 - Captain Ginyu... The Frog 81991-01-23Realizing that he's no match for the renewed Vegeta, Captain Ginyu decides to use his body-switching trick on him. Once again, he lets his body get thrashed, so his opponent will be very weak after the switch. Just as Captain Ginyu uses the trick, Goku recognizes the move and intercepts the light beam, switching back into his old body. Back in his broken body, Captain Ginyu tries to switch with Vegeta again. Goku throws a frog to intercept the transfer. The frog, in Ginyu's body, hops into the water, while Ginyu, in the frog's body, flees. With the Ginyu Force defeated, Goku recovers in an isolation chamber in Frieza's spaceship. Vegeta finds two pairs of Saiyan armor for Krillin and Gohan to wear in their upcoming fight with Frieza.

The Frieza Saga, also known as Season 3, is the third season of the Dragon Ball Z anime. It spans from episodes 75 through 107 in the original Japanese anime and FUNimation dub, and episodes 61 through 92 in the original dub. It adapts chapters 291 to 329 from the Dragon Ball manga.

1 - Password Is Porunga 81991-01-30While Goku is recovering, Krillin heads to Guru's to get the password. Gohan is left behind to guard the Dragon Balls while Vegeta is taking a nap. On his way to Guru's, Krillin sees Dende flying in the opposite direction. He meets up with him, and Dende tells him that he has been sent to deliver the password. Krillin and Dende head back to Frieza's ship. Once they arrive, they decide to make the wish now, so Vegeta won't get his wish of immortality. They bring the Dragon Balls to a nearby island, and Dende summons Porunga. Frieza, meanwhile, realizes that Nail is purposely stalling him, he makes a move to finish him off. Nail, however, says that killing him won't do any good because the others probably already have summoned the dragon balls. As the sky suddenly turns black, Frieza realizes that someone must be summoning the dragon, and frantically flies back to his ship.
2 - Piccolo's Return 81991-02-06Thanks to Dende, the Eternal Dragon, Porunga, has been summoned. Unlike Shenron, the earth's dragon, Porunga has the power to grant three wishes. Through King Kai, Piccolo tells Gohan to use the first wish to bring him back to life, then use the second to bring him to Namek. The dragon grants these two wishes. While they are thinking of their third wish, Vegeta wakes up. Furious, he flies over to Gohan, Krillin, and Dende, demanding that they wish for his immortality. Before they can decide what to do, Porunga suddenly disappears. Guru has died, so the Dragon Balls and Porunga die with him.
3 - The Fusion 81991-02-13Guru is gone, along with Porunga and Vegeta's wish. Frieza arrives, furious at being denied his wish. He begins to fight with them. Vegeta is confident in his new strength. Meanwhile, Piccolo comes upon Nail's wounded body. Nail tells him to fuse with him, because this transformation might give him enough power to defeat Frieza. Though he is reluctant, Piccolo agrees. He and Nail become one, though it is in Piccolo's body. With his newfound strength, Piccolo continues towards Frieza's ship.
4 - Fighting Power: One Million?? 5.51991-02-20As the battle continues, Frieza decides to tell Vegeta that it was actually he who destroyed planet Vegeta, wiping out the Saiyan race. Vegeta claims that he knew all along, which was why he hated Frieza so much. Frieza decides to reveal another secret: he can transform. He claims that at full strength, his fighting power is over one million. Eager to finally destroy Vegeta, Frieza transforms into a hideous giant.
5 - Gohan Attacks 81991-02-27By transforming into a giant, Frieza has gained much more power. Frieza's first victim is Krillin. After seeing his friend attacked, Gohan loses control of himself and unleashes a furious attack on Frieza. Though he is strong, he is not strong enough to stop Frieza, who pounds the inexperienced young warrior.
6 - Piccolo the Super-Namek 81991-03-06Dende heals Krillin's injuries. Krillin is then able to distract Frieza long enough for Dende to heal Gohan. Though they are both back to full strength, it all seems useless, because none of them are a match for Frieza. Suddenly, Piccolo finally arrives at the scene. He tells them that he will take on Frieza alone. Krillin and Gohan don't understand why he would do this, but Piccolo insists. With his new strength acquired from fusion, he is confident that he can take down Frieza.
7 - Deja Vu 81991-03-13Piccolo and Frieza begin to fight. With his new power, Piccolo is able to hold his own with Frieza. Also, since he is fused with Nail, he is familiar with the way Frieza fights. Inside the isolation chamber in Frieza's spaceship, Goku senses that Piccolo has arrived, and that his strength has dramatically increased. It seems that Piccolo is going to defeat Frieza.
8 - Frieza's Second Transformation 81991-03-20Piccolo is beating Frieza, but the evil tyrant has another trick up his sleeve: another transformation. He changes into a hideous beast. In this form, Frieza is even more powerful than before. Piccolo begins to fight the new Frieza, but it is clear that Frieza is more powerful. Piccolo is no longer able to hold him off.
9 - Another Transformation? 81991-03-27Frieza is about to finish Piccolo off, but Gohan jumps in front of his energy blast to save him. He then fires a blast of his own at Frieza, but Frieza is able to deflect it. Frieza decides to transform into his final form to finish them off once and for all. Vegeta, however, comes up with a plan to stop him: he asks Krillin to severely injure him, but when Dende heals him, he will become much more powerful. Krillin reluctantly gives Vegeta a powerful blast, and the Saiyan falls to the ground. He stumbles over to Dende, demanding that he be healed. Though Dende resists, Gohan and Krillin convince him to do it.
10 - Dende's Demise 81991-04-03Frieza realizes that Dende has been healing his opponents, so he kills him. Now in his final form, Frieza seems unstoppable. Gohan and Krillin throw everything they've got at him, but Frieza easily defeats them. Vegeta steps in, telling Frieza that he has now become a Super Saiyan. Unafraid, Frieza takes him on.
11 - The Renewed Goku 81991-04-10Despite his dramatic increase in power, Vegeta is no match for Frieza. It seems that he is not a Super Saiyan after all. Gohan, Krillin and Piccolo helplessly look on in horror as Frieza tortures Vegeta. Luckily, Goku has finally recovered. He breaks out of the isolation chamber, and flies to the battlefield.
12 - The End of Vegeta 81991-04-17Goku has entered the battlefield stronger than ever and prepares to fight Frieza alone. It seems that Goku might become a Super Saiyan, as he easily deflects Frieza's energy attacks. As Vegeta taunts Frieza, the tyrant easily finishes him off with a cruel bout of laughter. With his last breath, Vegeta tells Goku of what Frieza has done to the Saiyans. Can Goku defeat Frieza, the one person no one else has beaten?
13 - The Ultimate Battle 81991-04-24With new understanding of the Saiyans, Goku vows to avenge them by defeating Frieza. Both of these warriors match each other's moves with great speed and strength. Then, Frieza fires at Namek, causing a volcanic eruption. Can Goku survive this?
14 - Clash of the Super Powers 81991-05-01As the fight continues, Goku attacks from underwater upon realizing that Frieza can't sense power levels. As Goku seems to be in control, Frieza uses his mind to use rocks to attack Goku so he can trap him in an energy ball that will explode if it touches anything but Frieza, and it doesn't look good for Goku.
15 - Frieza's Boast 81991-05-08To prove that he's the strongest of all, Frieza uses his feet and not his hands to beat Goku. It may seem Frieza has the advantage, but Goku proves that the tyrant will have to use his hands. Meanwhile, Bulma finds a frog, unaware that it's Captain Ginyu as he prepares to switch bodies with her.
16 - Bold and Fearless 81991-05-15To ensure Goku is defeated, Frieza powers up to 50% of his maximum and it seems that not even Goku can handle it. Ginyu finds the other heroes in Bulma's body and prepares to have his revenge.
17 - Embodiment of Fire 81991-05-22Captain Ginyu prepares his revenge by switching with Piccolo, but Gohan is able to throw Bulma (as a frog) in the way to get her body back. Meanwhile, Goku is being beaten up by Frieza with his power increase and even the Kaio-ken attack doesn't work. But as he is held by the monster's power, he has a vision showing what Frieza could do to Earth. Rocked and inspired by the vision, Goku powers up.
18 - Trump Card 81991-05-29Goku's 20x Kaio-ken attack with a Kamehameha cannot work against Frieza, as the tyrant tries to destroy him once and for all. Luckily, Goku has one more trick up his sleeve: the Spirit Bomb.
19 - Keep the Chance Alive 81991-06-05As King Kai and the others watch the battle on Namek, the Ginyu Force arrives to take over the planet, but Yamcha, Tien and Chiaotzu are ready for a fight. Back on Namek, Frieza discovers Goku's Spirit Bomb and plans to stop it. Suddenly, Piccolo steps in to give Goku more time.
20 - Power of the Spirit 81991-06-12The battle on King Kai's planet begins with the Z-Fighters against the Ginyu Force and it seems that our heroes' training is paying off. Piccolo does his best for Goku to complete the Spirit Bomb, but it seems that Frieza might win this battle. At the last moment, the Spirit Bomb is completed, and Goku hurls it at Frieza, who can't control the force of the blast. Frieza is seemingly destroyed.
21 - Transformed at Last 81991-06-19It looks like the battle is over, as Frieza seems to be defeated and the Ginyu Force has been beaten off King Kai's planet to Hell by the remaining Z-Fighters. As everyone celebrates, Frieza reappears and spares no time attacking; first he fires a blast at Goku, but Piccolo hurls himself in front of it and takes the blast, knocking him out. Then Frieza fires another blast and uses it to blow up Krillin, killing him. Fueled by rage at the loss of his best friend, Goku's power increases exponentially, and he ascends to become a Super Saiyan.
22 - Explosion of Anger 81991-06-26Goku's hair has turned gold and his eyes green, as he is surrounded by a gold aura; the fuel of this power being his anger towards Frieza. As Gohan takes Piccolo to Goku's ship, our hero starts to pound on Frieza as the tyrant fires back, but none of his attacks are working against Goku now that he is a Super Saiyan. It looks like Frieza will finally be defeated.
23 - Namek's Destruction 81991-07-03Not willing to be beaten, Frieza fires an attack to destroy Namek so Goku will be killed, as the Super Saiyan can't do anything to stop the attack. However, he holds back too much power, and the planet isn't destroyed, but is left unstable and ready to collapse and blow up.
24 - A Final Attack 81991-07-10Namek is about to explode in 5 minutes, as Gohan finds Bulma and gets back to the ship. Meanwhile, Frieza powers up to 100% of his maximum to finish the fight. Instead of stopping him, Goku has let Frieza go full power, on the idea that if he beats Frieza at his full power, Frieza will never fight him again. As they continue their fight, it seems that Frieza has regained the upper hand now that he has powered up to his maximum, but Goku claims that the battle is far from over.
25 - Approaching Destruction 81991-07-17As the battle on Namek continues, Kami and Mr. Popo have found all of the restored Dragon Balls, giving King Kai an idea that might save everyone on Namek,bring back all of the fallen Nameks back to life, including Guru.
26 - Gohan Returns 81991-07-24Everyone that has been killed by Frieza and his henchmen on Namek are resurrected, but so far, Guru isn't back yet and it looks like Goku has been beaten by Frieza's attack. To avenge his father, Gohan returns to the battle to make sure that the cold tyrant dies along with the planet, but is no match for Frieza. Before Frieza lands the killing blow, however, Guru returns to life, and Goku reappears, and orders Gohan to leave Namek.
27 - The Last Wish 81991-07-31With Guru back to life, the Namekian Dragon Balls have been restored as well, with Porunga ready to grant the third wish. As Dende prepares to complete the final phase of King Kai's plan, Frieza flies towards Porunga to have his wish granted as well. Can Goku stop him in time?
28 - Duel on a Vanishing Planet 81991-08-07It seems that everyone on Namek has been transported to Earth, but Goku is still on Namek, insisting that he finish the fight. Everyone is upset with Goku's decision, as it seems that there is no escape from the explosion.
29 - Pathos of Frieza 81991-08-14As Namek gets closer to an explosion, it looks like Goku can beat Frieza with ease, as Frieza is getting weaker. Finally, Goku decides to leave, stating that, Frieza has lost to a fighter superior to him, but the tyrant won't give up that easily.
30 - Frieza Defeated!! 81991-08-21Frieza fires a pair of Krillin's Destructo Disks that will follow Goku until it hits him or anything else. Even so, Goku has the situation under control as the battle draws to a close end.
31 - Mighty Blast of Rage 81991-08-28As Guru enjoys seeing his people alive on Earth, the time has come for him to go, but gave his powers to Moori, as the next Eldest Namek. Back on Namek, Frieza has been cut in half by his own energy disk from behind, but Goku, being the kind person he is, gives Frieza some of his power to escape. However, Frieza will not accept defeat, as he uses the given power to finish Goku off, but Goku finishes off Frieza with a final blast attack.
32 - Namek's Explosion? Goku's End? 81991-09-04With Frieza gone, Goku flies to Frieza's spaceship to escape from Namek, but to no avail. Even though it looks like Goku is gone, Bulma and the others have an idea that could work; using the Namekian Dragon Balls, once restored, to bring everyone else back, including Goku.
33 - Goku's Alive!! 81991-09-11As it looks like Goku and Krillin can't come back, Vegeta has an idea: wish their souls to Earth and then wish them back to life, which is done for Krillin. Yamcha is also brought back to life. After another 130 days, Tien and Chiaotzu are also back to life, but Porunga says Goku can't be wished back to life because he's still alive, and knew that he doesn't want to return to Earth yet. However, Goku will return some other time.

2 - Black Fog of Terror 101991-09-25With the help of the Spice Boys, Garlic Junior releases the Black Water Mist upon an unsuspecting world. As the dreaded fog spreads, so does Garlic Junior's control over the Earth!
3 - Battle in Kami's Lookout 101991-10-02The situation on Master Roshi's island continues to spiral out of control, but then Piccolo arrives to buy some time. Krillin, Gohan and Maron make their escape to put an end to this nightmare. Piccolo faces overwhelming odds.
4 - Fight with Piccolo 101991-10-09The Black Water Mist has made Piccolo an uncontrollable monster. At Garlic Junior's insistence, the Spice Boys set him loose on Krillin and Gohan. The Spice Boys also intend to join in the fun. There is no one left to Krillin and Gohan now, so they give it their all. Gohan is forced to face the man that trained him, while Krillin tries to overcome all of the Spice Boys. Unfortunately, both Z Fighters just take serious beatings. Meanwhile, Garlic Junior enjoys the ensuing battle.
5 - Call for Restoration 101991-10-16Piccolo and the Spice Boys are unrelenting and seem unstoppable. Krillin and Gohan need some help, and the closest kind is from the captured Kami and Mr. Popo. Freeing them certainly wouldn't hurt. While Gohan keeps fighting, Krillin takes a risk that brings him up close and personal with Garlic Junior. Unfortunately, Piccolo beats him back. By the time the dust settles, Krillin is also infected with the Black Water Mist and Gohan is on his own. He refuses to give up, but he may not have a choice.
6 - Suicidal Course 101991-10-23Gohan is finally defeated and restrained. Garlic Junior savors obtaining his long-awaited chance for revenge against him and Goku for being trapped in the Dead Zone. However, his victory quickly proves short-lived. It turns out that Krillin and Piccolo tricked Garlic Junior. They're still good, and they were just waiting for the right moment to free Kami and Mr. Popo. Garlic Junior decides to make them all pay for this deception. The Makyo Star further allows such an opportunity. While the three Z Fighters brace for battle, Kami and Mr. Popo seek the Sacred Water deep within the Lookout. Unfortunately, time is running out on both fronts.
7 - Extreme Measures 101991-10-30Kami's Lookout is further trashed by the ensuing battle. Piccolo takes on Garlic Junior, while Krillin and Gohan handle the Spice Boys. The fighting is fierce and the three Z Fighters may be out of their league. Meanwhile, Kami and Mr. Popo find unlikely obstacles to the Sacred Water – the spirits of Earth's previous guardians. They won't let anyone take the Sacred Water and will attack if provoked. Kami doesn't back off, though, and is viciously attacked. Even worse, this affects Piccolo at the worst possible time. Garlic Junior, however, is glad to take advantage.
8 - The World Awakens 101991-11-06Piccolo falls before Garlic Junior and Krillin is next. Gohan refuses to give up and shows Garlic Junior some real power. The Former Guardians continue their assault and seem to be out for blood. While enduring further pain, though, Kami manages to convince them to do what is best for Earth. With that crisis over, Kami and Mr. Popo get to the Sacred Water and release it. The Sacred Water cures everyone across Earth and – for them at least – thing return to normal. This defeat angers Garlic Junior to the extreme. He has one last recourse for revenge – reopen the Dead Zone portal and suck his enemies inside.
9 - Brief Chance for Victory 101991-11-13A lifetime in the Dead Zone may await Krillin, Gohan, Piccolo, Kami and Mr. Popo. Gohan's improvised forcefield offers Krillin and Piccolo protection, but he can't keep it up forever. Garlic Junior, meanwhile, is strong enough to resist the portal's pull. The offensive approach is necessary and Gohan unleashes a massive assault on the Makyo Star – destroying it. Garlic Junior's power is weakened, and he is quickly sent back into the Dead Zone permanently. Naturally, the three Z Fighters, Kami and Mr. Popo are relieved this crisis is finally over.
10 - Krillin's Proposal 101991-11-20While on a shopping trip with Marron, Krillin is surprised to discover that she has marriage on her mind, meanwhile back at Kame house, Master Roshi claims that an emergency has become apparent that requires everyone to assemble at the turtle hermits dwelling. Once there they learn that the so called emergency is no more than a forgotten birthday, the turtle is 1000 years old. Later on, Krillin wonders whether he is good enough for Marron, hearing Krillin's dilemma, the turtle informs Krillin of the mermaid's tear, the worlds largest pearl, a gift worthy of royalty. Soon afterwards Gohan and Krillin venture into the vast unknown of the sea, and come across the legendary pearl, but the sea creatures surrounding the pearl are ready to defend it, with their lives. Krillin and Gohan return to Master Roshi's, and Marron leaves to enjoy the comforts of the beach, Krillin confronts her there and tells her it's over, Krillin revisits Kame house, with tears in his eyes, hidden by sunglasses.
11 - Frieza's Counterattack 81991-11-27Life on Earth has indeed returned to normal. Vegeta lands at Capsule Corp. and reports no luck in finding Goku. Meanwhile, Chi-Chi feels that a tutor can help Gohan with his studies. She later gives the tutor the boot, though, because he kept taking potshots at the missing Goku. A far bigger problem awaits out in space. The newly cybernetic Frieza is coming to Earth for revenge, and he's not alone. The Z Fighters know what they have to do, but without Goku, victory is impossible.
12 - The Mysterious Youth 81991-12-04Frieza's ship has landed on Earth. The Z Fighters and Bulma manage to meet up near the landing site, and the situation is even worse than they feared. Backed-up by King Cold and a number of soldiers, Frieza is going to return the favor for what Goku did to him on Namek. Unfortunately, the Saiyan hero himself is still a no-show. Hope may exist in the form of a new warrior, though.
13 - Another Super Saiyan? 81991-12-11The "Mysterious youth" confronts Frieza, King Cold and their soldiers. The soldiers attack the stranger but get sliced up by his sword. More soldiers charge at the boy but they are easily handled. Frieza and King Cold laugh thinking the stranger will be no trouble at all. The stranger announces that he knows Goku and is a Super Saiyan. He transforms into a Super Saiyan and the Z-Fighters wonder if it’s Goku they are sensing. Frieza tries 3 times to defeat the stranger all failing. He fires a ball at the stranger 10 times the size of the one that destroyed Namek. He just catches it shatters it. "Is this yours" he said to Frieza. The stranger then takes out his sword. He slices Frieza in half.
14 - Welcome Back Goku 81991-12-18King Cold is the invasion force's sole survivor, and he refuses to surrender. The young warrior makes him regret that – quickly sending him to Other World. The threat passed, the Z Fighters and Bulma are left with joy, relief and awe. Questions, however, linger about this young warrior – especially when he claims to know that Goku will return in a couple of hours. To see if he's telling the truth, the Z Fighters and Bulma decide to wait with him at the supposed landing site. Amazingly, exactly as the young warrior said, a ship lands on Earth and Goku emerges from it.
15 - Mystery Revealed 81992-01-15Goku experiences a much different homecoming than he was expecting. Though he is thrilled to see Gohan and his friends again, the young warrior immediately wishes to speak with him. Before they talk, though, he has Goku prove his Super Saiyan transformation was no fluke. The bizarreness only intensifies from there. The new warrior – Trunks – is the time traveling son of Vegeta and Bulma. By Trunks' time, a heart disease has killed Goku and Dr. Gero's androids have killed many people – including the other Z Fighters. Trunks hopes to now change their future and his present. Before departing, he gives Goku the heart disease antidote.
16 - Goku's Special Technique 81992-01-22Back with the other Z Fighters and Bulma, Goku explains that he survived Namek's destruction via a Ginyu Force space pod. He later crashed on another planet and was nursed back to health by the inhabitants. He was also taught a new technique – the Instant Transmission. What Trunks had to say is a less pleasant matter to discuss. Piccolo – having heard everything already because of his good ears – cuts to the quick. The Z Fighters decide to spend the next three years training, so they will be ready for the Androids.
17 - Z Warriors Prepare 81992-01-29The Z Fighters – some together and some separately – are in full training mode and with specific regiments in mind. Outdoing Goku, though, proves more important to Vegeta as he trains in three hundred times Earth's gravity. Curiosity about the Saiyan Prince's intense workout prompts Yamcha to give it a try – much to his regret. More severe trouble later occurs for Vegeta – thanks to a shipwide overload and explosion. Bulma ends up nursing him back to health. Three-way sparring between Goku, Gohan and Piccolo goes significantly smoother.
18 - Goku's Ordeal 81992-02-05A rough trek through the forest is the last straw for Chi-Chi. Pressure to get a driver's license is now on Goku. Also along for the ride is Piccolo, courtesy of Goku. Needless to say, chaos ensues during their driving tests, and they fail. A later test sees them and an instructor find a bus full of people in danger. Innocent lives are saved by Goku and Piccolo, but they fail the test again. On the plus side, the instructor admits that he'd rather be able to fly like them than drive. In the end, it's three years later and time to fight the Androids.
19 - The Androids Appear 81992-02-12A cliff overlooking the city the Androids are due to attack is the rendezvous point for most of the Z Fighters and Bulma. Vegeta is a no-show, but his and Bulma's son – baby Trunks – isn't. Chiaotzu is absent, too, by Tien's decision. Yajirobe drops by to give Goku some Senzu Beans from Korin. However, just as he leaves, his ship is shot down. Yajirobe is saved, but it is clear that the Androids did it and that the attack has begun. With the Androids somewhere in the city, the Z Fighters begin a search. Yamcha proves unlucky this time, as he finds them first.
20 - A Handy Trick 81992-02-19Androids 19 and 20 nearly kill Yamcha. Fortunately, the other Z Fighters arrive on the scene to confront them. Krillin takes Yamcha away to get him a Senzu Bean. Meanwhile, revelations await Goku, Tien and Piccolo. It turns out that this is all about Dr. Gero wanting to make Goku pay for destroying the Red Ribbon Army years ago. Dr. Gero had certainly been meticulous – spending years watching, calculating, and collecting various DNA samples to achieve victory. With more innocents in danger, the three Z Fighters convince the two Androids to take the fight to a more isolated area. Once there, the Super Saiyan Goku takes on Android 19.
21 - Double Trouble for Goku 81992-02-26As the fight between Goku and Android 19 rages, Tien, Piccolo and Android 20 willingly just observe. It looks like Goku will easily wrap things up soon… at least at first. However, there is a problem – a problem that Tien noticed earlier and now threatens to get worse. It turns out that the heart disease is affecting Goku, and he doesn't have the antidote with him. Android 19 is all-too happy to take advantage. Also, the history of Goku's dealings with the Red Ribbon Army comes to light.
22 - Upgrade to Super Saiyan 81992-03-04Krillin, Gohan and Yamcha arrive to the battlefield, and they don't like what they see. Goku can barely stand because of the heart disease and even Senzu Beans are ineffective against it. The only antidote is back at Goku's house. Android 19, though, may finish Goku before the heart disease can. Goku's salvation comes from a most unlikely source – Vegeta. Not only that, but much to his joy, he is now a Super Saiyan.
23 - The Secret of Dr. Gero 81992-03-11Yamcha immediately flies Goku home to get him the heart disease antidote. Vegeta and the Androids, though, can't be bothered with their absence because they have more important things on their minds. Vegeta and Android 19 quickly battle. Vegeta finishes what Goku started – reducing Android 19 to rubble. The Saiyan Prince then turns his attention to Android 20, who quickly flees. Searching the mountains will not be easy for the remaining Z Fighters. Meanwhile, Android 20 knows that he needs more power to defeat Vegeta and that requires some 'donors.'
24 - More Androids?! 81992-03-18Though the Z Fighters are after Android 20, they don't realize what he has in mind for them. Piccolo is attacked and begins to have his energy drained, but then Gohan saves him. Despite backup being on hand, Piccolo decides to handle Android 20 on his own. Much to Android 20's surprise, Piccolo is much stronger than he expected and easily pummels him. Meanwhile, Trunks is back from the future. He also has a big surprise for the Z Fighters – he has never seen Androids 19 and 20 before.
25 - Follow Dr. Gero 81992-03-25Damaged and surrounded, Android 20 is definitely feeling pressure from the Z Fighters. When Bulma's plane arrives, he finds his needed diversion to escape by shooting it down. Fortunately, Trunks rescues Bulma and his younger self. What Bulma knows is just as important. She has seen Android 20 before – he's actually a modified Dr. Gero. Trunks also reveals more about the Androids that he knows – 17 and 18. Unfortunately, Dr. Gero wants his currently dormant creations to fight the Z Fighters and only he knows where they are.
26 - Nightmare Comes True 81992-04-01Dr. Gero believes that Androids 17 and 18 will be the keys to his victory, but problems arise. For one, his run-in with Krillin just leads the other Z Fighters right to him. However, by the time they arrive, Dr. Gero is in his laboratory and activating the two Androids. He orders them to destroy the Z Fighters, but 17 and 18 display a lack of obedience. They quickly turn on their creator. Meanwhile, Yamcha and Chi-Chi watch over a struggling Goku. He looks bad, but what he's dreaming is even worse.
27 - Goku's Assassin 81992-04-08Lots of surprising things await the Z Fighters at Dr. Gero's laboratory. For one, Android 17 finishes Dr. Gero. Also, Android 18 finds a pod containing the dormant Android 16. Trunks unleashes a powerful energy blast in an attempt to destroy them all, but to no real effect. Once 16 is activated, he reveals his mission is to kill Goku. 17 and 18 decide that would be fun and take 16 to find Goku – ignoring the Z Fighters in the process. Vegeta, though, hates being ignored and pursues to get a fight.
28 - Deadly Beauty 101992-04-15Android 18 accepts Vegeta's challenge for a fight. Krillin, Piccolo, Tien and Trunks soon arrive to the battlefield. Vegeta doesn't want their help and Android 17 promises to stay out of the fight if they do. He also notes that Vegeta is very strong, but doubts by enough. He is soon not alone in thinking that. Piccolo notices that Vegeta grows weaker, while 18 doesn't. The results speak for themselves, as Vegeta soon takes a beating. Trunks races into action to save his father – triggering an even bigger fight.
29 - No Match for the Androids 101992-04-22Trunks has leapt into battle, and has been joined by Piccolo and Tien. Krillin, however, is too afraid to do anything but watch. Though Android 18 doesn't need the help, Android 17 is no longer bound by his earlier promise and also enters the fray. Their combined might easily crushes the Z Fighters. They don't kill them, though, and soon leave with Android 16. With the sick Goku their target, what can possibly be done now?
30 - Last Ditch Effort 101992-04-29The Z Fighters' sole good news right now is that they are still alive. Vegeta storms off to train harder and vent about his humiliating defeat. Piccolo also leaves, but is not forthcoming about why. Krillin, however, figures it out – he is going to ask Kami to reunite into one, powerful being. Kami is not surprised by this development, but he needs time to think about it. Tien decides to head off on his own, while Krillin and Trunks race to reach Goku's house. They have to get him and the others out of there before the three Androids arrive.
31 - Closing In 81992-05-06Kami has much to consider. He and Piccolo reuniting could possibly save the world, but the latter's past doesn't prevent frightening possibilities from being overlooked. Meanwhile, Goku is barely stable now and needs time to recover. Unfortunately, the three Androids aren't willing to give him the time. The Z Fighters evacuate him and Chi-Chi, and they fly to Master Roshi's island. Also, thugs learn what the Z Fighters already knew – Androids 16, 17 and 18 should never be provoked.
32 - Unwelcome Discovery 81992-05-13The three Androids are on their way to Goku's house – unaware that no one is there to greet them. Meanwhile, during the flight to Master Roshi's island, Goku has horrific nightmares – nightmares that are all-too close to reality. Also, Trunks and others discuss his future, his time traveling and the constant changes. The answers create some headaches and things Trunks never considered. However, while flying by, something unusual is found on the ground below. An investigation reveals that it looks like a time capsule – Trunks' time capsule, but how can that be when he still has his?

1 - Seized with Fear 81992-05-20Gohan and Trunks head to the other time capsule with Bulma to find more about it. Along the way, they discover that not it only did it come here 4 years ago, but also weird egg shells and gigantic bug that has already shed its skin, but what could it mean?
2 - The Reunion 81992-05-27While Gohan and Trunks go to Master Roshi's island, there's a crisis in Gingertown where its inhabitants are disappearing but with no damage to the town. Realizing this threat, Kami decides to fuse with Piccolo, but will their combined power be enough to handle whatever is going on down there?
3 - Borrowed Powers 81992-06-03The deserted streets of Gingertown become a battlefield as the power-up Piccolo confronts this terror from the future. The monster's name is Cell, and he gains strength from sucking the life out of his victims! But that's not the only secret the creature reveals. Somehow, he also knows Goku's special attack, the Kamehameha!
4 - His Name is Cell 81992-06-10With the element of surprise, the creature gets ahold of Piccolo and begins to absorb him, but Piccolo manages to break free. With his arm weakened, Piccolo surrenders, but the Super Namek asks for one last request to know who this creature. His name is Cell, an Android made of the strongest fighters in the universe and he's hungry for more power, thanks to Dr. Gero.
5 - Piccolo's Folly 81992-06-17As the Android from the future tells Piccolo his objective to absorb Androids 17 and 18 to obtain his "Perfect Form," Piccolo regenerates his arm. With his power restored and Krillin and Trunks by his side, Piccolo has a good chance against Cell, but the Android has more tricks up his sleeve.
6 - Laboratory Basement 81992-06-24By using Tien's Solar Flare, Cell manages to escape and suppress his power in order to complete his dreadful mission. After telling everyone the bad news, Piccolo and Tien find Cell, as Trunks and Krillin try to find the bunker beneath Gero's laboratory and destroy the present Cell and find some incredible news- the plans of Android 17
7 - Our Hero Awakes 81992-07-01As Krillin heads back to Master Roshi's, he crosses Cell's path and barely escapes his wrath as Piccolo and Tien arrive at the scene. Meanwhile, Trunks finds his father to train with him in order to surpass a Super Saiyan. As hope seems lost, a glimmer still remains- Goku has made a recovery and plans to get stronger, but how?
8 - Time Chamber 81992-07-08After enduring the terrifically horrifying effect of the viral heart disease, Goku recovers, and has only one objective on his mind, surpassing a Super Saiyan. With Vegeta's mind set on reaching the same seemingly unreachable goal, Goku takes him, Trunks and Gohan to the mysterious Hyperbolic Time Chamber, a room where one year is equivalent to that of one Earth day. Meanwhile, the Androids face an unexpected and unforeseen issue, Goku's not home. With the Androids now closing in on Master Roshi's island can Piccolo beat the destructive trio?
9 - The Monster is Coming 81992-07-15Piccolo begins his epic battle against Android 17, and he seems to be on par with the mechanical monster, meanwhile Bulma continues to work on the remote that will shut down the Androids. However, Cell can feel Piccolo's energy, and knows he must be fighting one of the Androids, he charges towards them, in the hope that he will become complete.
10 - He's Here 81992-07-22Piccolo and 17 continue their showdown, unbeknownst to them that the power-hungry Cell is approaching fast. Piccolo is as strong as 17 but fatigue kicks in, while the malicious Android's power remains undrained. Meanwhile Goku and Gohan impatiently wait for Vegeta and Trunks to finish their Super Saiyan training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. Cell arrives at the battlefield, ready to attain his final perfect form, and the Androids don't seem to know who Cell is.
11 - Up to Piccolo 81992-07-29With more people absorbed, Cell has become more powerful than both Piccolo and 17 combined. Despite Piccolo's best attempts, Cell easily disposes of Piccolo. Knowing of his origin and mission the Androids must work together in order to save themselves from Cell's overwhelming power.
12 - Silent Warrior 81992-08-05With Piccolo gone, Android 17 has no choice but to fight Cell on his own or so it seems, that is until Android 16 steps in to fight. As the battle rages on, it is easily noticeable that Android 16 is just as strong as Cell, but can the silent giant Android 16 defeat Cell? Or maybe this fight will buy Vegeta and Trunks the precious time they need to complete their training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.
13 - Say Goodbye, 17 81992-08-12The battle between Android 16 and Cell continue. Cell tries to counter-attack but falls short to 16's Inferno Flash. 16 warns 17 and 18 to quickly leave the battlefield. But before they could do so, Cell sneaks up behind 17 and quickly absorbs him. Cell has transformed, and his next task is to absorb 18 to become complete. Android 16 is no match for the second form of Cell, and is mortally wounded. Is there anyone left who can stop Cell from achieving perfection?
14 - Sacrifice 81992-08-19Cell has absorbed 17 but he still needs 18. Tien isn't about to let him get her, using up all his energy in a vicious attack while the androids escape to safety. Goku knows that Cell is far stronger than Tien, so he descends on the battlefield to help the mighty warrior recover. Whilst there he notices Piccolo is still alive, but he's hanging on barely by a thread. Goku uses his Instant Transmission to get back to Kami's lookout successfully, and Vegeta and Trunks finally emerge from the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, but will their training be enough?
15 - Saiyans Emerge 81992-08-26Goku asks Trunks about the training, but Vegeta doesn’t want him to say anything about it. Meanwhile, 18 questions 16 on his love for nature and asks if he even cares that Cell might absorb her and kill him. Then Bulma lands at Kami’s lookout. She gives Gohan, Goku, Trunks, and Vegeta a set of Saiyan armour. Tien and Piccolo refuse to wear the suits, claiming they do not want to wear the same clothes as the Saiyans. Vegeta then leaves to find and destroy Cell, while Trunks closely follows
16 - Super Vegeta 91992-09-02Anxious to find 18, the heartless Cell obliterates a chain of inhabited islands, with each explosion bringing him closer to the Android's hideout!

22 - Vegeta Must Pay 81992-10-21After allowing Cell to reach his final form, Vegeta is ready for the challenge he was promised. But as Cell becomes a brick wall to the Saiyan’s every blow, it’s clear that Vegeta has more than he bargained for!
23 - Trunks Ascends 81992-10-28Vegeta doubles as a punching bag as Cell demonstrates his amazing power. But the Saiyan Prince never surrenders!
