THE GREATEST ACTION CARTOON ON ALL TIME!!!
Frankly I demand that the animation industries crown DragonBallZ "THE GREATEST ACTION CARTOON OF ALL TIME!!!" A 10, a perfect 10 is what I give this BEYOND AWESOME TV SHOW! There is nothing like it in the world! No one else has thought up the kind of animation stunts they put on here before! If HollyWood tried to make this a live action film, the Special Effects company's would have a run for their money! This is red hot stuff from Japan, and it's steaming! The trick is, you must see the right episode. If you see a dull episode, then it's no good. But if you catch an episode with TONS of action, I promise you, "You're in for a real treat!" This show is very addictive, why? Because EVERY SINGLE EPISODE IS A "TO BE CONTINUED". There is no end! You pick up where you left off, just like a Soap Opera. Except this is not boring like Soap Opera's are. (No offense to Soap Opera lovers) I suggest this to the family groups. This is great for both kids and adults alike. (Though it can get too violent for the little kids. However it's a "PG" rating show) I highly suggest that you see the "Frieza Saga" since those are the best episodes. See it on "Cartoon Network" or rent them at your local video store. I'm not allowed to say too much more about this except for my good critisizm. As you can see, I am a true fan. And I wouldn't lie to you if I didn't think you wouldn't enjoy this a little. Just make sure you see the right episodes.

Goofs

ENGLISH DUBBED VERSION: When Jeice arrives on Namek, he tells Frieza he brought "the special Dragon Ball scouter." This is a REGULAR scouter. No scouter can detect Dragon Balls.


Crazy Credits

While other DBZ movies just used whatever opening went with the show at the time the movie was release, Tree of Might features a specially-made opening, featuring the Z-Fighters gathering the Dragon Balls to restore the destroyed forest.


Alternate Versions

The original Saban dub was very heavily edited, removing most of the violence and also all gore, several visual shots of alcohol, mild sexuality and nudity were removed or altered, along with other seemingly random footage presumably removed to speed up the pacing of the story. The new Funimation dub restores all missing footage, including a long segment explaining how Gohan ended up clinging to a tree above a waterfall in the first episode, and an entire episode in which Gohan falls into a cave while alone in the wilderness and meets a nihilistic trapped robot. The new version combines reused dialogue from the original dub with completely new dialogue more closely based on the original Japanese version, with numerous references to death and dying restored after being entirely censored in the original dub.
