Trivia

In season 1 episode 22 when vegeta and nappa are talking with piccolo. The news crews in helicopters show up, one of the helicopters sports the NCC 1701-A title and looks like a shuttle from the Enterprise.


Quotes

Nappa: Vegeta, what does the scouter say about his power level?
Vegeta: It's over NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAAND!


Goofs

On the Space Suit Goku wears at times on his way to Namek, Goku is misspelled as "Gokuh."


Crazy Credits

When FUNimation aired the Buu Saga, their end-credits sequence used footage from the Japanese Buu Saga end credits. Strangely, they show the feather dropping from the sky, but they DO NOT show the Goku with angel wings who dropped it!


Alternate Versions

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).
