A prequel to the original Dragonball series, this TV movie tells the story of Son Goku's father Bardock and his futile attempt to stop Freeza from destroying his planet Vegeta. It also shows how little Kakarotto (Son Goku) ends up on earth! Written by
The original Japanese version had eye catchers that were cut from the original FUNimation DVD. These have been reinserted into the newer re releases. See more »
The dubbed version seems to imply the baby Goku inherited Bardock's ability to see into the future as a child. This makes no sense; Goku was born BEFORE Bardock was inflicted with this curse (note that this error only exists in the dub, and not the original Japanese.) See more »
Planet Vegeta. Many years ago, a small child was born. Uninherited and unattended by it's father and mother, the baby cried out, making it's only plea to the universe. The Saiyans were people of war, and like all Saiyan babies, the child was destined to fight!

Originally broadcast almost 11 yrs ago, this tv special shows how advanced japanese animation is, nowadays people have jumped on the DBZ bandwagon. Now DBZ is the most popular cartoon out there, and yet it ended almost 6 yrs ago.
This special "Story of Bardock" reveals Goku's father and his battle with Freeza, who would be very familiar to DBZ fans.
Bardock has dreams of a future son ,Goku who will save the universe from Freeza and all enemies.
Bardock at first denies this, thinking he is hallucinating,but when Freeza kills his friends and sets his sight on him, he knows it's more than a dream.
Like in the movie Superman, Bardock must send his son Guku, in a space pod so Freeza won't get to him.
The final showdown between Bardock and Freeza is memorable along with the action.
Goku would later become a great warrior and avenge his father by killing Freeza.
Later Freeza's brother, Koola would seek revenge on Goku.
As you can see what makes DBZ great are it's complex stories and it always follows up to the events in it.
Great DBZ special.
