Pop goes the weasel!
During the Namek saga, when Gohan is trying to hide a Dragon Ball from Vegeta, Vegeta notices the radar in Gohan's hand and asks what it is. Gohan lies that it's a clock, to which Vegeta responds that Earth technology must be primitive if clocks are so big. However in a few European dubbings, based on the series' French versions, Gohan doesn't call it a clock, but a monster, prompting Vegeta to respond that Earth monsters sure are small. But this translation makes no sense, as the radar is clearly a mechanical gadget, so there is no way Vegeta would believe it to be a monster.
The Portuguese version, based on the French edit, was a parody dub. The dialogue inserted lots of cultural references that only Portuguese people would understand, and most of the characters were given bizarre distortion effects to their voices to make them sound more alien. Some characters sang opera or made humorous girl-screams when they were supposed to be shouting, and changes in the dubbing cast were at times pointed out as well - for instance, after Vegeta's voice actor was recast, he says "I'm so mad that my voice has changed".
