Episode 39: Piccolo Reborn! Frieza’s Second Transformation!

A few minutes into the episode Freeza taunts Piccolo, Piccolo responds…

A few moments later, Freeza and Piccolo engage in some awesome hand to hand combat. Sadly though, you wouldn’t know it if you watched it on Nicktoons. They take out pieces here and there and whatever’s left, they edit with a flash.

Next we have a typical “barrage of punches” shot, then Piccolo kicks Freeza in the face. Don’t know why this was all edited out, they could have just moved the already existing flash during the kick and just moved it a few seconds earlier like they usually do. Oh well.

Then another barrage scene cut…

Freeza eventually gets the upper hand and holds Piccolo against a mountain side. The close up shot of Piccolo is cut out

A close up of Freeza is also cut, followed by Piccolo moving his head…

Next Freeza starts blasting Piccolo. A close up of Freeza and a shot of the energy blasts are cut out…

After the dust settles and it’s clear Piccolo is OK, they start fighting again. Sometime during this scene Freeza tail slaps Piccolo…

They both plumit into the water as they’re fighting, a shot of Freeza chocking Piccolo is edited out…

When Freeza emerges from the water, no Piccolo in sight, he tells Gohan…

Piccolo eventually emerges and tells Freeza he’s about to show him his true power. Piccolo rushes him and punches him in the face…

Piccolo torpedoes himself into Freeza’s stomach, this isn’t edited with a flash or given a white screen, they just barley put a flash of white. It’s odd.

Piccolo then gives him a swift kick…

Piccolo then torpedoes himself again into Freeza’s body, in the Nicktoons version though, Piccolo gets tail smacked…

Freeza then throws powerful energy beam at Piccolo, he deflects it and throws his own ki blast into the mix. This hits Freeza, but in the Nicktoons version there is a slight cut, I guess because it looks like it could be blood? It happens so fast though, you wouldn’t notice anyway…

Freeza comes out of it with very little damage. From here until he transforms into his third form, there is a bit of blood on his face that’s been edited out….

Piccolo and Freeza have a dramatic stare down for a moment, then Freeza breaks the silence with a punch to the face…

Followed by a elbow to the face…

And finally a punch into the ground…

When Piccolo emerges from the dirt, he is edited for blood for only a few moments, when he takes his cape and head gear off, all his blood is gone.

Piccolo yells to Freeza…

Piccolo gets the upper hand with his new speed, and throws Freeza into the ground. After he does that he throws a barrage of ki blasts for good measure. This was edited out…

As Freeza emerges from the barrage, he tells Piccolo he has two more transformations. He decides to transform and tells Piccolo…

Note: Piccolo’s blood magically appears on his face again until the newly transformed Freeza gives chase a few moments later. It’s all been edited.

As Goku feels Freeza’s power, he talks about how he might not be able to stand a chance against Freeza, before he goes into this though, he says…

Piccolo is pretty confident in his own speed, but when Freeza catches up to Piccolo, he says to himself…

Freeza says to Piccolo…

Freeza now goes on the attack and kicks Piccolo in the back…

Then there’s a few seconds cut of Piccolo getting his ass kicked…

Note: After this beat down, Piccolo has blood on his face and body until the end of the episode. It’s edited out of for the TV version.

Feeling out classed, Piccolo says to himself…

Freeza hit’s him with one little blast, then another, and Piccolo thinks to himself “He’s too fast”, this reaction shot was cut out…

Then Freeza shoots Piccolo with a little blast, then another. Then an Freeza just starts shooting an endless array of tiny little blasts. Now, in this TV version, the shots of Piccolo getting hit by this endless array of tiny blast are edited out (except the very last one during the narrators speech during the episode wrap up. That shot though isn’t animated.) This endless array of blasts are shown in between reaction shots of Gohan or Vegeta or Krillin. I wasn’t going to put up a screen shot for each time the attack is on screen, so here is how much time in total was cut from this attack.

Gohan can’t stand to watch this anymore and rushes toward Freeza, Krillin tries to stop Gohan and yells…

The episode ends very soon after this. This ends the last comparison until March. See ya!
