Harmony Gold dubbed both 'Mystical Adventure' and 'Curse of the Blood Rubies' and aired it as a double feature on WPSG Philly 57 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the early 1990's, changing the characters names, censoring footage and replacing the original Japanese opening and ending credits.

As a long time fan of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z I am excited to see this finally find release in the United States. This movie spins off of the early Dragon Ball Tournament Saga very smoothly with a short scenic summary of Goku and Krillin's (Kuririn) training under Master Roshi. There is a lot of good fun and some nice action sequences, including tournament fighting hosted by Chaozu. Familiar Dragon Ball characters are there, including Bulma, Oolong, Yamcha and Pu'ar, and some new characters are introduced, including Tien and the aforementioned Chaozu. Very funny and overall quite enjoyable, though uncut this may be a little too suggestive for many children. I highly recommend this to all Dragon Ball or DBZ fans as well as any fan of lighthearted anime; I actually enjoyed this movie more than many of the Dragon Ball Z movies that follow it.
