Trivia

A running gag throughout the series starting in DBZ. Goku has faced off with many super powered adversaries throughout the series but there is only one being in the universe that he fears: his overprotective wife Chi Chi.


Quotes

Majin Buu: Buu turn you into candy.


Goofs

EDITED ENGLISH VERSION: In the original Japanese version, Dr. Briefs (Bulma's dad) ALWAYS had a cigarette in his mouth. It was digitally removed for the edited dub, but the editing is often unconvincing. Watch his mouth and you can see "glitches" on the screen in that area.


Crazy Credits

When Dragon Ball Z was first dubbed, the opening credits used a mix of footage from the series, from the first three movies, and the Japanese intro sequences. It was accompanied by an American-only theme song called Rock the Dragon. This intro was unusual in that it had footage from movies that never aired on TV at the time, and in that it showed many things that would not happen until much later in the series, and not as a part of this dubbed version (Future Trunks, short-haired Yamcha, Super Saiyan transformations, etc.)


Alternate Versions

An episode in the Saiyaman saga with a burning building was cut during the initial dub airings of the season due to sensitivity towards the attacks at the World Trade Center in New York, New York and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia in the year 2001.
