EDIT
The Puzzle of General Tao
AIRED:
General Tao, a Dragon Ball nemesis, has returned once again as a hired thief. This time in parts rather than a whole. It seems that the grenade didn't kill him but damaged some parts of his body. Basically his hands and eyes are now robotic. Goku is challenged to solve a puzzle before sun up to retrieve all the Dragon balls but if he doesn't they belong to Tao and some gangster. Goku solves it and uses Instant Transmission to transport himself to where the bad guys escaped, collects his prize and leaves.moreless

    this is one of the funniest episodes i have ever seen. while goku is hunting the dragonballs, he finds this gangster hideout. inside, he sees a strange man who has two dragonballs, and his old enemy: general tao. goku doesnt know it, but the guys in there are trying to kill him. he thinks its unfair that he doesnt have anything to trade to the man in return for the dragonballs. general tao then gives goku some puzzle rings and if goku can figure them out by dawn the next day, he would get the dragonballs. he ends up figuring them out, and when he uses the instant transmission to find the gangsters, they get scared and hand him the dragonballsmoreless

    Goku goes dragon ball hunting once again. He finds himself in a large fortress that is inhabitated by Mercenary Tao and some gangsters. Knowing fully his strength, Tao devises a plan to take advantage of Goku's dumb side by telling him to undo three tied up clips with the prize being their 2 dragon balls. It took him a day, but Goku figured it out, and got his reward before Tao and the gangsters got far away.



    If nothing else, this was a little bit amusing. I don't know why, but I found the Chicken and Frying Pan joke extremely pathetic, yet a bit funny. I'll just say it was so pathetic that it was funny. Though what made this episode more amusing is that Goku calmly collected the dragon balls in such a tight situation that would have caused normal human beings to piss their pants. Well, it is Goku, but it's just so out of context it's funny. Still a waste of an episode though.moreless
