"Hey Captain, while we wait for the enemy do mind if we break for lunch"
Gala's first appearance was in the second chapter of the one-shot Wonder Island, also as a police officer.
In Dr. Slump, Gala and his partner Pagos constantly have their car destroyed (accidentally) by an excited running Arale Norimaki; this happen in "Is It a Girl? Is It a Boy!?", the "Arale on the Loose" chapters, and "The Lovely Trio". In the chapter "Untouchable", it is them who try to destroy Arale's car, but they fail miserably. In "Penguin Village Dom-Dom-Dom!", Gala and Pagos follow Arale and Gatchan thinking Arale is preparing something because she does not destroy their car, while she is in fact bringing ice cream to the Norimaki Residence.
In the General Blue Saga, he helps Pagos and Taro try to arrest General Blue, but they end up failing. Gala later gets with the rest of the Penguin Village Police Force, and they end up shooting King Nikochan's spaceship down.
Dr. Slump remake
In the 1997 remake of Dr. Slump, Gala is similar as in his previous appearance, except that he wears a police helmet more often than a police hat.
