"The Trouble With Time Travel" is the eleventh episode of Season 3 of Team Four Star's DragonBall Z Abridged and is the forty-first episode overall. It was first uploaded to YouTube on April 6, 2014.

Synopsis Edit

The androids are flying in the mountain region with Android 17 looking for a vehicle to go to Goku's, while Android 18 wants to at least get new clothes since she's getting cold. They find a pink truck, steal it from the drivers and drive off. Meanwhile, the Z-Fighters fly off, with Krillin realizing they should move Goku from his house so the androids won't find him. Trunks is caught up to speed on how Goku is doing, and Tien breaks off to pick up Chiaotzu (who is feeding the residents of Kame House, including Oolong, pork ramen). Krillin and Trunks reach Goku's house, and tell Chi-Chi and Yamcha what happened. They decide to move Goku (who's petering out from screaming) to Kame House (which unfortunately would literally be the second place they'd look) and Gohan arrives to join them.

Meanwhile, the androids get pulled over by the police for speeding, and start to troll and beat them. Tien arrives at Kame House and tells Chiaotzu that they need to train some more. Master Roshi is frightened that they haven't beaten the androids, and gets Oolong to buy a submarine (naming it after his junk). Back on the lookout, Kami and Piccolo sense something, but don't do anything about it, much to Nail's annoyance who asks them to fuse already.

On board Yamcha's ship, Krillin talks about how Vegeta got both arms broken, and how cute Android 18 looks. Gohan asks Trunks if the fact that he came back from the future again means they failed, but Trunks explains it doesn't work that way and believes that going through time actually means going to another universe. Gohan believes that he's referring to the multiverse theory, and gives a brief description about how every decision can cause a different outcome, and time traveling is actually transporting oneself to a parallel universe. Trunks also reveals he came back to make sure this timeline isn't destroyed, but also because Bulma never told him about multiverse theory before the first time he came back to the past. Bulma calls with a country ringtone (something Trunks had never heard before) and lets them know about something she heard about from a Ginger Town farmer. She faxes over the picture, and much to Trunks' shock, it's his time machine.

In the stinger, the androids are seen on a highway on their way to Goku's house. Android 18 asks what are they going to do after they killed Goku and Android 17 responds that they can do whatever they want since Goku won't be there to stop them. In order to lighten up the mood due to being 2,544 miles from Goku's House, 17 turns on the radio, which starts playing country music that greatly annoys 18. 17 then states that he has forgotten that they are out in the sticks and 18 has an idea of the first thing they're going to do before heading over killing Goku.

Running Gags/CallbacksEdit

  • Krillin Owned Count: 31 -- Krillin gets door-slammed by Chi-Chi in the head.
  • Both Yamcha and Gohan point out that Kame House would literally be the second place the androids would look.
  • Yamcha's "Cat Loves Food" song is once again heard, this time in country music form.
  • When Oolong asks Chiaotzu what's in his Chashu Ramen, Chiaotzu dragged the word "pork" for a long time before Oolong states that he's delicious. This conversation is a callback in the movie, "The Revenge of Cooler", in which Oolong asked Krillin the same question about his cooking, the only difference is that Chiaotzu dragged the word longer and failed to think of another word in time.
  • Chi-Chi talking about installing a GPS tracking chip in Gohan's neck is a callback to the movie "Christmas Tree of Might", where it was mentioned that she (supposedly) got a GPS to keep track of Gohan from Santa.

Trivia Edit

  • The title is possibly a reference to the original Star Trek episode "The Trouble with Tribbles".
  • Country music supposedly doesn't exist in Trunks' timeline since the Androids killed every country star in existence.
  • The submarine would make a physical appearance in the stinger of the "History of Trunks" special.
  • It's revealed in Episode Breakdown that the multiverse theory animation was created by MakasoX.
    • When a floating sign saying "YOU ARE ENTERING A PARALELL UNIVERSE!" is shown, the word "parallel" is misspelt as "paralell".
