"Mini Gokū is Just Precious! I'm Gohan" (ミニ悟空はおぼっちゃま!ボク悟飯です, Mini Gokū wa Obotchama! Boku Gohan Desu; FUNimation "The New Threat") is the first episode of the Dragon Ball Z anime.


Five years have passed since Gokū's victory at the 23rd Tenka-Ichi Budōkai. Gokū's son, Gohan, is wandering around the woods outside of his house when a tiger steals his hat. While he's looking for the tiger, he accidentally falls into a river. Gokū, searching for his son, finds his hat. He suddenly sees Gohan floating down a river, but he can't reach him in time before he goes over a waterfall. Gokū looks up and sees Gohan clinging to a branch, having somehow jumped out of the river. With Gohan safe, they head to Muten Rōshi's house. Meanwhile, a mysterious alien has arrived on Earth looking for a man named Kakarotto. With a special device: the Scouter he wears on his head, he searches for high power levels on Earth. He finds Piccolo, whose attack is completely ineffective. The alien is about to devastate Piccolo when he finds a higher power level and flies off.
