"Bulma and Son Gokū" (ブルマと孫悟空, Buruma to Son Gokū; FUNimation "The Secret of the Dragon Balls") is the first episode of the Dragon Ball anime.

Summary

Son Gokū, a young, but strong orphan living alone in the mountains, and Bulma, a teenage girl searching for seven mystical balls, come together when Bulma hits Gokū head-on while driving a motorized vehicle. The balls that Bulma is searching for, known as Dragon Balls, summon the wish granting "dragon god", Shenron. Before Gokū's grandfather died, he gave him a Dragon Ball with four stars in it: the Four-Star Ball. Bulma, already possessing two of the balls, decides to let Gokū "join her on a fun adventure" so she can borrow his strength and Dragon Ball. They take off on a motorcycle, but Bulma is abducted by a giant flying dinosaur during a little pit stop. Gokū takes out the monster with his Nyoibō and rescues her.
