The Cartoon Network version cuts out the begining where Piccolo is injured by the fighters. It also cuts Chi-Chi saying "What the hell do you want?" Also cut is the scene when Gohan is drunk and urinates on Krillin's head. The credit sequence includes new music. See more »
First let me say that compared to the other Dragonball Z movies, Dead Zone is the only one which can possibly fit in with the timeline set by the episodes. It takes place before the series, and thus runs no risk of contradicting anything. Although the translations of Japanese animation into English is usually poor, I found the character of Goku to be, as always, the perfect combination of super hero and down to earth dad. Gohan's hidden power, which even Goku is unaware of at this time, is amazing, and he is definitely his father's son in the way that it comes out when his friends and loved ones are suffering. A must see for DBZ fans.
