Contrary to popular belief, Akira Toriyama did have a part in the anime-only filler material. For instance, Pikkon never appeared in the original manga but was created by Toriyama. Likewise, the idea of Yamcha having a job as a baseball player was also Toriyama's idea. See more »

It always amuses me to read the comments section of each movie/TV show. The people who view classic series/movies such as this as negative obviously didn't really watch it. If you don't dedicate yourself to watch an entire saga, you won't grasp the full concept of the show. It is a continuous series and it's quite apparent other members don't understand the meaning.
Anyway, it is a kid show in Japan, but realize a kid show in Japan has violence, nudity, and profanity. I admit the FUNimation version isn't as great as the original Japanese, but it is still a great anime series, easily one of the best.
If you're new to the show, watch it from the very beginning to understand. You don't need to see Dragonball to appreciate this series because they do constant flashbacks.
