Episode Synopsis

It turns out that Hatchan had the Dragon Ball. He had hidden it, knowing that the villagers would be killed once they found it. The mayor recommends that Hatchan stay in the village, but Hatchan says it is dangerous, because of his self-destruct mechanism. In order to get Hatchan’s self-destruct mechanism removed, they visit his creator, Dr. Flappe. But Murasaki has gone there ahead of them! He steals Goku’s luggage, in an attempt to find the Dragon Balls. However, it only contained Goku’s bentō (single-portion meal)?! The self-destruct mechanism is safely removed.

Next Time:
“Bulma’s House in West City”
