As the soul of Goku undergoes its traditional one-year journey towards King Kai, the dying Raditz warns Piccolo that the Saiyans intend to invade the earth within that same year to reclaim the seven Dragon Balls. To prevent this calamity, Piccolo begins to train Goku's son Gohan in the skills of a Saiyan warrior. "Goku's Unusual Journey" first aired in Japan on May 24 1989, and in America on October 4 1996.
