What starts off as a bizarre re-telling of the Chinese legend "Journey to the West" quickly transforms into pure madness. On a twisted version of Earth, the ridiculously strong child-fighter Son Gokû is joined by several companions in the quest for the seven "dragon balls", which, when assembled, will summon the Grand Dragon, who will grant the bearer of the balls one single wish. The problem is, the Grand Dragon can only be invoked once a year, and villains battle Goku and friends constantly for possession of the Dragon Balls.Written by

The Latin American version, dubbed in Mexico, changed Chi Chi's name to Milk, due the relation in Mexico of the word 'Chichi' and breasts. Despite that major change, most of the characters names and techniques names were translated straight from japanese and kept their original names. Content related to nudity and sexual references were not translated in the first episodes, in order to get the approval for 'all audiences', but characters like Master Roshi, Yamcha, Bulma, etc., all kept they personality and most of their dialogues intact. Violent content was not cut by the dubbing company, but some TV channels in different countries of Latin America made their own cuts while broadcasting. See more »
Dragonball is the king off all anime.One of the best animated series of all time.An anime for all kinds of ages,being both gentle and violent.Although dragon ball z is even better,everybody needs to start with the early years of the most iconic anime character of all time,Goku,the tenacious warrior with a heart of gold.You follow Goku on his quest to find the dragon balls as he grows to be a strong warrior while making friends and enemies through the years.The plot gets better as Goku grows older and the stories are getting more and more interesting with stronger rivals and more information about Goku's life and past .You get to know all those enjoyable characters that so many kids grew up with and loved.The show gives out strong messages to kids about loyalty,friendship,hard work,having dreams and never giving up.I watched the show when i was 8 and i still watch it now,almost 20 years later,with the same excitement.It is pure gold and i recommend it to everyone.
