Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The title tells all in this DragonBall Z episode. An inaugural skirmish with Goku leaves Cell groggy, causing Hercule to complain that he will never get his chance in the ring. But as Krillin and Gohan watch from the sidelines, the battle resumes in deadly earnest, accelerating in speed with each new blow. When Cell fires a powerful "kamehameha" at the startled Goku, it is clear that the preliminaries are over and done with. First shown in Japan in 1993, "Goku vs. Cell" aired in the U.S. on November 29, 2000.
