Originally airing in the United States in 1996, its initial run was heavily edited from the Japanese version, so much that out of the first 68 episodes, the American version was cut down to 53 episodes, 15 episodes worth of content. This was mostly due to the partnership between FUNimation productions (Who owned the rights) and Saban Entertainment (Who was responsible for the dubbing and editing) When the show gained a following on Cartoon Network, it was renewed and FUNimation had sole control. As a result, the episodes were not as clipped as before, following the Japanese episode number precisely from then on. See more »
There are numerous animation errors and consistencies throughout the series. Often, for a single frame or two, someone will be drawn in the wrong outfit or their outfit will be the wrong color. Likewise, some characters general appearances/color schemes will change for no apparent reason (Nappa and Vegeta before their arrival on earth come to mind.) See more »

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.) See more »
Wow this is not only the best anime of all time its the best show of all time! I have liked this show since I was in 3rd grade absolutely amazing show. I love it not only for the action but for the emotional scenes in it are very well done, its definitely got a great storyline to back up its fabulous action. The only thing that can get annoying about this show is a lot of the stuff is drawn out too long but hey everything has its good and bad parts. The show starts off a little slow but trust me it gets good once Freeza saga hits. Also the music that Funimation's Bruce Falconer is a true artist wow I was blown away at how good the music is. The music really makes you feel how emotional the scene is. Its like the music puts you in the situation its so good.
