Pan arrives on the planet Luud and is transformed into a doll.
The Para Para Brothers’ ship takes Pan and Giru to the planet Luud. There, Pan uses the Dragon Radar on Giru’s back to track down the Dragon Ball stolen from them on Gelbo.
Their search leads them to a weird-looking castle; a scared Giru flies away, but Pan goes inside. She finds the Dragon Ball but is confronted by Cardinal Mutchy Mutchy (whom we saw in episode 9), who uses his powers to turn her into a little doll.
The Others Catch Up
Nearby, Goku and Trunks arrive on Luud (thanks to directions provided by the captured Para Para Brothers) and meet up with Giru, who shows them to the castle. There, Mutchy Mutchy transforms the Brothers into dolls, then he himself transforms into a monster, ready to fight Goku and Trunks.
A setup episode, and not a particularly thrilling one at that. Mutchy Mutchy turning people into dolls is goofy but not in a fun way, like Buu’s candy technique. The most entertaining part of the episode was his blue lion thing that showed up for 5 seconds at the end, only to be killed (destroyed?) way too quickly by Trunks and Goku. I was a little surprised the Para Para Brothers helped Goku and Trunks get to Luud without trying to trick or lure them into a trap. Good – let’s keep this arc as short as possible.
