||Dragonball GT Episode 8
Gokuu mo dokkan!! Ohige pawaa zenkai
Gokuu also Thunders!! The Whiskers' Power is at Full
Trunks is forced to get closer so Zuunama can tell if "she" is
prettier than yesterday. Trunks stalls, while Pan hides behind a fake
cactus and tells the "bride" to get moving. It looks like the plan will
fail, and Gokuu wants to just cut to the combat -- Pan tells him to
wait. Turns out that Zuunama LIKES Trunks better than Reenu, and they
return to its mountain.
Zuunama comments on Trunks' beard stubble, and has to be told to stop
touching "to avoid getting sick". They jump into a pool, and swim in
under the mountain to the caves inside. The rescuers lose Trunks and
try to figure out what happened. Doma guesses that they went swimming
in the pool, and Gokuu strips down to the skin. Pan complains about
seeing Gokuu naked, and the boy says that he'd taken a bath with her
many times when she was younger. Pan claims that it was different then,
and Doma can't understand how the boy can be Pan's grandfather. (Pan
drop kicks Gill when the robot's panicking gets too distracting.) Gokuu
finds the underwater entrance.
In the cave, Trunks finds a magma pool, and wipes the sweat from
his face -- smearing his lipstick. He also loses his wig, as Zuunama is
pulling out lingerie for "her". Zuunama decides that "Torairansu" looks
even prettier than Reenu. They sit down to eat, and "Torairansu" tries
to get the monster to drink the sake as a "toast". Turns out that
Zuunama is a teetotaler. So, Trunks has to trick it into looking the
other way so he can splash the sake on some fruit. Zuunama eats them
all (stuffed into his face by the eager Torairansu.) (This is a funny
scene.) Zuunama comments on the strange taste. It quickly gets drunk
-- an angry ugly drunk. It wants more fruit, ignoring the fact that
it's eaten them all. The other heroes show up in the chamber at this
point, and are seen by Zuunama.
Zuunama is pissed at the interruption, and starts bashing everyone.
Gokuu eagerly looks forward to the fight, but the monster passes out.
Trunks changes out of the dress, saying it's good that Zuunama normally
doesn't drink. Doma cuts one whisker, and the kids laugh at Zuunama's
weird-looking face. It sneezes, blowing Doma away, and wakes up. It
asks why Torairansu has changes clothes -- Trunks answers and adds "I am
male". Zuunama discovers its mustache has been cut, and it starts
making a huge earthquake. Which quickly ends. Zuunama thinks that the
earthquake is still going and asks if the intruders are scared. Pan
realizes that Zuunama doesn't create earthquakes -- it only senses when
an earthquake is about to happen and takes credit for it. Doma is angry
at having been taken in for so long. Zuunama discovers that its fraud
has been uncovered and still tries to fake it. But, the lava pool below
the cavern explodes, and everyone is forced to run (Zuunama blames its
lack of control on the scissors and the sake.) They leap into the pool
with the lava close behind.
Gokuu uses an energy bolt to propel him into Zuunama, and hence
pushing all of them to the outside world, and to safety. The
mountain is threatening to go volcanic, pouring lava down on the
village. Gokuu uses Kamehame-ha to blow it out. Instead, he blows it
up. Gokuu doesn't really care.
Later, at the ship, Pan gets Reenu's Dragon Ball. Zuunama has been
accepted by the villagers as an earthquake early warning system.
Suddenly, the Ball floats up out of Pan's hand, and into the hands of
one villager. The villager's disguise disappears to reveal a blue-faced
alien. The alien flies up to his ship. The alien ship flies away into
