Episode Summary

Yamcha The Desert Bandit!
To get to the next Dragonball, Goku, Bulma, and Oolong must cross the Diablo Desert, a wide, vast, empty place which Oolong is afraid of. While they are driving, Oolong asks for something to eat, and Bulma hands him a yellow pill, in which she says is very nutritous. When Bulma insists on going through the Diablo Desert to reach the next Dragonball, Oolong changes into a fish and jumps into a nearby river to escape, but he's lured back by some cash. He tries to run again, until Bulma shouts "Piggy! Piggy! Piggy!", forcing Oolong to go to the bathroom. It turns out that the yellow pill that Bulma fed Oolong will force him to go to the bathroom every time she utters the word "Piggy". Bulma opens up her DynoCap box to get a faster car, when she realizes that she's all out. She tries to force Oolong to change into a car, but he can't carry both of them, and they're forced to walk. Out in the desert, Bulma demands to take a rest under a shady rock formation. She ends up falling asleep, leaving Goku and Oolong in charge. Suddenly a strange man appears, introducing himself as Yamcha, the Desert Bandit. His partner, Puar, a small blue rabbit, recognizes Oolong as the bully who used to steal her lunch money at shapeshifting school. Yamcha plans to rob Goku and Co., so instead, Goku fights him off, eventually knocking his tooth out. He's enraged at Goku, not for the pain, but for ruining his 'beautiful face'. At this moment Bulma wakes up, forcing Yamcha to retreat with Puar. Back at his hideout, he explains to Puar that he's extremely shy around women. He vows revenge against Goku, who is currently whining for something to eat.moreless
