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

Grab them in the hands! Dragon Ball! / One of the world's most thrilling secrets / Hunt those down!

The French version, distributed across most of Europe during the 90s, reinterpreted or outright deleted several scenes in an effort to make the series suitable for their intended audience, young kids. Most famously, much of the perverted antics of Master Roshi and a great deal of crass jokes were rewritten, but the animation was often left intact. This has lead to the animation at times clearly showing that the characters were thinking "dirty" thoughts, even though the dialogue itself was more kid-friendly. For example, Yamcha's fear of seeing naked women was twisted into him being afraid of shampoo. However, several similar gags were actually kept and only slightly toned down. See more »
The original show is the best one! While the manga version of "Dragonball Z" is good, that show simply just kept dragging out fights! That's all it was! Fight, fight, fight! As for "Dragonball GT", it was fun, it was better than "Z", but not nearly as fun as the original. This one had it all! Action, humor, odd characters, fun adventures! Accept nothing else!
