Gohan, Defeat Your Dad!! (奴はオラじゃネェ! 悟飯びびるな父を撃て!!, Yatsu wa Ora ja ne! Gohan Bibiru na Chichi wo Ute) is the sixth episode of the Captain Ginyu Saga and the fifty ninth overall episode in the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. It first aired on January 16, 1991. Its original American air date was September 17, 1999.



Vegeta lands a crushing blow on Jeice before killing him

Captain Ginyu powers up to his maximum and asks Jeice about his power level, but to his horror, Jeice replies that it is only a mere 23,000. Goku triumphantly explains that this is because Ginyu does not know Goku's secret of uniting body and soul. Gohan and Krillin fight him together and gain the upper hand. Ginyu calls out to Jeice for assistance, but Vegeta comes out of hiding to intercept and battle Jeice alone.

As the fight rages on, Ginyu begins to get the hang of Goku's body, and turns the tables on Krillin and Gohan. Goku briefly gets the hang of Ginyu's body and joins the battle but is easily brushed aside. Meanwhile, Vegeta stuns Jeice with his new power and brutally dispatches him, claiming to be a Super Saiyan. Ginyu denies it, and Vegeta turns his sights on him, pummeling him into submission with a few hard blows and sending him crashing to the ground, injuring him severely. Vegeta flies downward to finish Ginyu, but Ginyu smirks and begins his body-switching technique again with Vegeta fast approaching.

  • For their release of the Captain Ginyu Saga, FUNimation did not include recaps or even the lone next episode preview that are usually found on their individual discs. This is because episodes 54-56 aired in a slightly edited form on Toonami to make up for the place at which episode 53 had been edited to stop. To make up for this, FUNimation created new recaps for half of the Captain Ginyu Saga until the footage began to sync up to the Japanese version by episode 57. Therefore, the recaps seen in the TV version of episodes 54-56 are different from the recaps seen on later DVD and Blu-ray releases.
  • When the two are fighting, Jeice refers to Vegeta as "Vegetable breath", a play on Vegeta's name.
  • In the remastered dub, the sounds Jeice makes before Vegeta kills Jeice in the original dub are replaced with noises already heard in previous scenes and episodes.
