"Kame House Discovered!!" (KAME HOUSE 発見さる!!, Kame Hausu Hakken Saru!!; Viz "The Turtle is Spotted!"; Literally meaning "The Turtle House Discovered!!") is the seventy-first chapter of Part I of the Dragon Ball manga.


Gokū and Bulma eventually arrive at the Kame House and meet Umigame. He then calls out to Kame-Sennin and the turtle hermit asks if Gokū had found his grandfather's Dragon Ball, to which Gokū replies he is yet to find it. The young boy then gets Bulma to revert from her shrunken state, surprising Kame-Sennin and leading Bulma to explain the device that allows her to alter her size. After being pestered by Gokū, she then asks if they can use the turtle hermit's submarine, to which Kame-Sennin accepts in return for the shrinking device and reveals that Kulilin and Lunch used the submarine capsule to go shopping.

Meanwhile, at the Red Ribbon Army Headquarters, while Gokū's movements confuse Commander Red, his assistant hypothesizes that the young boy must be working with a genius scientist, as there was no way that someone with Gokū's intellectual level could build such an advanced radar that can track Dragon Balls with ease. After Red contacts Blue, and as Kame-Sennin, Gokū and Bulma wait for Kulilin and Lunch to arrive back, Bulma decides to use the bathroom. The turtle hermit then uses the shrinking device for yet another perverted attempt to see Bulma undressed.

Much to the turtle hermit's disappointment, Bulma is done using the bathroom, and as she flushes the toilet, the shrunken Kame-Sennin falls inside, and then emerges out of a nearby sewer in frustration. Kulilin and Lunch return, and the former asks of Gokū's purpose of being at the island. While Blue is looking for the Kame House, Kulilin reveals that there is some pirates' treasure underwater and proposes to go with Gokū and Bulma. As they depart, the Red Ribbon Army tracks down where they came from and finds the Kame House, and Blue hypothesizes that Kame-Sennin, or the "old man" he hears of, is the scientist Gokū is working with.
