Dragon Ball Z: Summer Vacation Special (ドラゴンボールZ 極限きょくげんバトル!!さんだいスーパーサイヤじん スペシャル Doragon Bōru Zetto Kyokugen Batoru!! San Dai Sūpā Saiya-jin Supesharu, lit. "Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Battle!! The Three Great Super Saiyans Special") is a rare TV special that is part of the Dragon Ball Z series. This special was aired on Tokai TV on August 3, 1992, a month after the release of Dragon Ball Z: Super Android 13! (July 11, 1992), between episodes 150 and 151.

This special is often confused with the Looking Back at it All: The Dragon Ball Z Year-End Show! special.



Goku and Gohan in the streets of West City

The setting of Dragon Ball Z: Movie Overview Special is identical to that of the movie Super Android 13!, West City,[1] except Goku and Gohan appear in the streets wearing sharp tuxedos. In fact, it is noted by Goku himself, that the events taking place in this special are after that of said movie.

In this film, the two Saiyans discuss the first three movies of Dragon Ball (Curse of the Blood Rubies, Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle, and Mystical Adventure) and the first seven of Dragon Ball Z (Dead Zone, The World's Strongest, The Tree of Might, Lord Slug, Cooler's Revenge, The Return of Cooler, and Super Android 13!).


Gohan wearing a Tuxedo

In the end, Goku does not much like being all dressed up and powers up to change back into his regular martial arts uniform. Gohan tries to do like his father, but he is not powerful enough to get out of his tuxedo. Goku says he will get there someday, and Gohan tells everyone to be sure to go see Dragon Ball Z: Super Android 13! in theaters.
