Hunt for a Dragon Ball is the fourth episode of the Namek Saga in the original dubbed Dragon Ball Z series.

Summary

This episode starts out with Bulma and the gang in the Namek's ship. They are looking for a Dragon Ball, which is located in a tree. Some dinosaur hits the tree and the Dragon Ball falls out. The greedy dinosaur picks it up and scatters off. The gang is about to run after it but the Namek stops them. He says that it is to dangerous. And explains the lake of acid in front of them. They fly over it and then they see the dinosaurs skeleton. They then come to the shocking conclusion that the Dragon Ball is at the bottom of the lake. So the Namek says there is only one way of getting the Dragon Ball. Someone small enough to fit inside of the suit that could withstand the acid would have to go down to the bottom. So Gohan has to go, but there is a catch. He only has 20 seconds to get it or it will eat through the suit. He jumps in anyway. So he goes down and finds the Dragon Ball. He then has to swim up, because the cord that would have pulled him up had the acid eat through it. He can’t get up in time so he uses a one handed Masenko attack to give him a boost. He gets up just in time. So Bulma and the rest rejoice and head out for the next one.

But Bulma interrupts them and tells them they might destroy the Dragon Ball. So they don’t, they just wonder what to do. But Gohan flies up to the top of the tornado and comes down the center of it.
