Was Gohan's birth seen at the end of Dragon ball?

Post by jjgp1112 » Sat Sep 08, 2007 12:15 pm

I was reading something, and they talked about Gohan's birth being sen at the end of the show. Is this true?
Yamcha: Do you remember the spell to release him - do you know all the words?
Bulma: Of course! I'm not gonna pull a Frieza and screw it up!
Master Roshi: Bulma, I think Frieza failed because he wore too many clothes!

Its been a while since I've seen the last few filler eps, but they focused on ChiChi and Goku find a replacement Bansho Fan and then they got married if I remember correctly.

So, to answer your question... no.

No. Goku and Chi Chi's wedding was in the anime though.

Hmmm, the only thing that comes to mind is a filler flashback of Gohan's early moments. Goku and Chichi were trying to decide on a name for Gohan. I believe it was in the ten days rest before the Cell Games.
It's all GOOD

In the last episode, Uranai Baba looks into her crystal ball and sees something which surprises her and she covers her ball so we can't see. I think that she saw their son =p
But they didn't say anything about it though.

Yeah, the final scene of the final episode was Baba looking into the crystal ball. Obviously, it was meant as a prelude to DBZ, which originally aired the next week in Japan, but the particulars are up to interpretation. Could have been Gohan's birth, or Raditz's arrival, or the antics of that wacky mountain lion...

I think the only time Gohan was ever actually shown as a baby was that pre-Cell Game filler episode with the flashbacks.

Wasn't that Goten and Trunks? Gohan was 11/12 in those scenes I believe.

I believe the only time Gohan is ever shown as a baby is in the episode where he celebrates his birthday, a week before the Cell Games.

Nah, I was thinking of Gohan. The way he's drawn, he appears younger than he was at the beginning of Z.

Because you don't want the eyecatches, just like you don't want 4:3 footage or detail or original colors. Now get back in your cage.

I always just assumed that was 4-year-old Gohan, but I see what you mean. My bad.

There's a couple other minor cuts if you're interested. No big loss, though.

The episode opens with a zoom through outer space and the "special" screens appears at the end.

And there's a special ending image after the credit roll.

I'm not sure why exactly, but Gohan's hair reminds me of Yamcha for some reason.

That looks more like 4 year old Gohan to me. His head is definitely bigger than Trunks's. Plus, he's wearing the Si Xing Qiu on his hat for his age! :)

Awesome. We got the special screen for the Burdock special. I wonder why not for the Trunks special. Ah well, thanks for the screens.
