Trivia

Originally airing in the United States in 1996, its initial run was heavily edited from the Japanese version, so much that out of the first 67 episodes, the American version was cut down to 53 episodes, 14 episodes worth of content. This was mostly ... ...


Quotes

Vegeta: While I was with you guys, I became more human. I didn't like that. I even have a family and started to like living on earth.


Goofs

English dubbed version: Early in the series, Raditz states that the planet Vegeta was destroyed three years prior to the beginning of the series. Later on, this is changed to twenty years (which is accurate to the original Japanese version). When they went back and did the "uncut dubbed" version that aired on Cartoon Network, they still used the inaccurate "three years" quote.


Crazy Credits

The show has three openings. The first opening (Saiyan and Frieza Saga) is a montage of the characters and battles, and it features a scene of Nappa and Vegeta walking through fire, and ends with the Z-Fighters assembled, joined by Goku who falls from above wielding his Power Pole (unusual considering he never uses it in Z.) The second intro (Cell Saga) is basically the same, however it eliminates the "Nappa and Vegeta in fire" sequence, and shows a more modern group shot of the Z-Fighters at the end, including Goku becoming a Super Saiyan. The third intro (Buu Saga) is completely different and features a new opening song, with footage of the Z-Fighters as they appear later in the series. The first two intros are accompanied by an end credits scene of Gohan running on a globe, intercut with other footage of Z-Fighters and allies. The third intro has an end credits scene featuring Gohan walking down a sidewalk, looking up to see Goku with angel wings, who drops a feather from them.
