In the English dub, it is said that Planet Vegeta was destroyed three years ago, but it is later changed to twenty years ago (the latter is accurate to the Japanese original.) Interestingly, even when they did the "uncut dubbed" version on Cartoon Network, in the early Raditz episodes they still used the inaccurate "three years" quote.
In France, the first half of the series was subjected to major and very inconsistent censorship. Many violent scenes got removed altogether, thus messing up the pacing and leading to plot holes. The death of several characters got cut either partially or entirely, though on numerous occasions, episode recaps and flashbacks still showed these scenes unedited. However, none of Gohan's nudity or any references to Hell, religious figures, and talk of death got removed, because these were still seen as suitable for young children, the target audience of the French version. After the Frieza Saga, the censorship radically decreased, and no material was cut from the entirety of the Buu Saga, including gore, sexual references and character's flipping off others. Instead, the dialogue was rewritten to sound more childish and easy to understand, and in particular, Master Roshi's lines were changed to remove all sexual references (even when the animation clearly showed what he was really talking about).
