Daigoro Kurigashira is a supporting character in the second half of Dr. Slump who later makes minor appearances in Dragon Ball and Jaco the Galactic Patrolman. He is a teacher at Penguin Village high school.
He has a very large, chestnut-shaped head and usually wears a green suit and red tie.
Jaco the Galactic Patrolman
Daigoro moves to Penguin Village to teach high school when Arale, Akane, and Peasuke entered their first year and became their teacher. Later on, Tsukutsun Tsun and Obotchaman joined his class. The Gatchans and Turbo sometimes accompanied Arale in his class as well.
In the Dragon Ball manga, Daigoro is seen in the background with several other Penguin Village residents making the peace sign. In the Dragon Ball anime, Goku asks him if he saw General Blue close by, but he just nods his head.
Dr. Slump remake
His appearance is the same as the original series. When Goku arrives and stays in Penguin Village for a few days, Daigoro teaches him as part of his class.
