    An episode that was important in showing Goku in the environment he grew up in jungles and such like.

    So all i can say is that it was brilliant. one of the better ones

    also it showed people from the red ribbon army destroying things ( as usual )also the end was a bit of a cliffhanger(literally) as Goku just saved the monkeys from falling of the cliff so i think its an episode worthy of watching

    also what i think does need fixing is that they (the producers) don't show previews of the next episodes)Also the tale on the history of the dragon balls is interesting.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Bulma asks Roshi for the Three-Star Ball he had around his neck in "The Nimbus Cloud of Roshi", Roshi states that it is a trinket which he never had any use of, and he is baffled when Bulma explains their power and their ability to grant a wish. Whereas in this episode, Roshi seems to know the origin of their creation.

    • After Commander Red throws the knife at the statue, Colonel Silver's hair and eyebrows are black instead of red. This mignt be due to the shadow covering him, as shown when it covers parts of him in previous and following scenes.

    • Commander Red states that he needs four more Dragon Balls; however, he still needs six.

    • Roshi explains the Legend of the Dragonballs, but is totally wrong. This is because the author, Akira Toriyma, had not come up with Nameks yet.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Colonel Silver: Hey, monkey boy!
      Goku: You're the one who attacked the Ox King!
      Colonel Silver: I'm Colonel Silver, pleased to kill you.

  • NOTES (5)

    • This episode title is the same in the Original (if you translate it), Funimation and Canadian versions.

    • Original Air Date: October 8th, 1986

    • Japanese Title: The Legend of the Dragon

    • There is a flashback scene in this episode, in which Master Roshi attempts to explain the origin of the Dragon Balls. As his story goes, there was originally one large Dragon Ball, a gift from the gods. But the people became greedy and started wars over the Dragon Ball, and so the gods divided the Dragon Ball into seven separate balls.
      That explanation is never again mentioned outside of Episode 33, and it is anime-only. As presented in Chapter 162 of the manga, Korin is the first to tell us that the Dragon Balls were created by Kami. This idea is also represented in the anime, in Episode 123 of Dragon Ball, ignoring the previous explanation entirely. While the idea that the Dragon Balls were created by a deity as a blessing to the people is somewhat similar, this is later refuted by the fact that Kami is simply a very gifted Namekian who happened to attain the role of Earth's god, and not all Namekians with this ability are considered "gods".
