This live-action version of the popular Japanese animated series Dragon Ball. A villainous king known as Emperor Horn has stolen the mystical power of the "Dragon Pearls" in an attempt to possess them all and rule the world! When all but one of the pearls has been stolen, the former rag-tag group of guardian heroes (led by Goku) of the mysterious magic jewels decides to band together and take some big action! Led by a pig-headed wizard and a half-turtle martial arts master, the team first takes on King Horn's army in a desperate bid to stop him from gaining control of the Dragon Pearls.

Since the rights to adapt "Dragon Ball" had not been acquired, some changes (mostly in name) had to be made:
- Son Goku was renamed the Monkey Boy;
- Grandpa Gohan was renamed Sparkle;
- Bulma was renamed Seetou;
- Oolong was renamed Piggy;
- Yamcha was renamed Westwood;
- Yamcha's companion Puar was replaced with a cockatoo;
- Master Roshi was titled simply the Turtle Man;
- Penny was renamed Jen Jen;
- King Gourmeth was renamed King Horn, and his henchmen Bongo and Raven were renamed Zebrata and Malilia.
During one of the final shots, Lord Horn loses his power over the huge group of people. Everyone is supposed to fall, but there is a whole group of people still standing, looking quite confused. See more
