Goku’s journey to King Kai’s planet happened without incident in the original Dragon Ball manga. The anime decided to include several filler events (like the detour to the Home For Infinite Losers), in order to extend the journey. One of these episodes involved a beautiful woman named Princess Snake. She tries to tempt Goku off the Snake Way, and attempted to win his affections. Goku is too loyal to his friends in the other dimension, however, and refuses her advances. He is forced to flee Princess Snake after she turns into a giant serpent, and tries to eat him whole.
