- This article is about the Dragon Ball GT episode. For the Dragon Ball episode, see "Tail's Tale".
The Tail's Tale (くらえベビー!新生ウーブ必殺光線!!, Kurae Bebi!! Shinsei Ubu hissatsu kosen!!) is the eighteenth episode of the Baby Saga and the thirty-third overall episode of Dragon Ball GT. The episode first aired on January 15, 1997. Its original American air date was May 22, 2004.
The Shin-jins and Space Lemurs are still trying to pull Goku's tail out, when Goku senses that something strange is happening. He asks the others to look at the Crystal Ball, and they inform him that Uub has become Majuub. Then, Old Kai has Goku get tied up by Sugoro so that Goku can not move. Then they recommence the tail pulling exercises.
Baby informs everyone that they might want to move, and then he and Majuub begin fighting. Majuub decides to pull out all the stops right away, so he fires a beam which turns everyone around him into chocolate. Majuub promises to turn everyone back when he is done fighting Baby, and then they attack again.
On the planet of the Kais, Goku figures out a way to pull out his tail. He has Old Kai get tied to the rock, and then he powers up and flies upward, allowing his tail to be pulled out. With his tail finally out, Kibito Kai transports Goku to the Tuffle Planet to fight.
Majuub fires a Chocolate Kamehameha at Baby, which he holds off and then begins to turn back. Goku arrives, but it is just in time to see Majuub getting turned into chocolate, and Baby eats him. Goku shows up on the battlefield to confront Baby once again after realizing that he is too late to save Majuub. Baby realizes that Goku is still alive and he now has a tail. He then targets Goku. Goku powers up to Super Saiyan 3, which he is now able to maintain, but is still unable to defeat Baby and Baby uses Goku's tail as another weapon and defeats him as Goku loses the Super Saiyan 3 transformation forever.
With Goku being down for the count, he looks at the Earth. Goku desires to help the Earth, and then he begins to transform. He becomes a Great Ape that then becomes Golden in color (much like that of a Super Saiyan). Will this be enough to stop Baby? Find out on the next GT.
