Episode 22

"Dodoria's Terrifying Chase! A Truth Revealed to Vegeta!" aired 23 June 2010

The footage from Bulma Brief's bath scene from episode 49 of Dragon Ball Z was reused in this remake being one of the few filler scenes from Dragon Ball Z to kept in Dragon Ball Kai. The beginning scene of Bulma in the bathtub Crossing her legs being seen in the reflection of a bubble was reanimated. In the rest of the scene had slightly altered colors and thicker lines. The soap suds from the Bubble Bath were more darkened and detailed and the water on Bulma's body is more visible. The last part of the original scene where Bulma is shown bending over was removed most likely for both the reasons of its subliminal nature and for minimizing of filler.


The bath scene is still kept on the Nicktoons and CW4kids Toonzai broadcast of the episode but Bulma's cleavage is covered up by extra digitally animated bubbles.
