The character of Dr. Gero is said to have been the Red Ribbon Army's chief creator of cyborgs and technology, that character never appeared or was mentioned a single time in the original Dragon Ball. In Dragon Ball anime it is stated that an entirely separate scientist, Dr. Frappe, created this technology, but this scientist does not appear in the original manga, it's a filler character.

I was going to write a huge long comment on this, but a lot of people really seem to hate this show so I just can't be bothered preaching to the unconvertable. I will say, however, I am a big fan of anime and this is one of my favourites. It's certainly my favourite anime TV series. People don't seem to realise that this is for kids, so screw the voice acting (which is better than many other kids shows) and animation (which is also better than many other kids shows). Comparing this to serious anime like Akira is like comparing He-Man to Gladiator. DBZ is light on the brain and heavy on the adrenal gland. Once you get into it it becomes very addictive, and your imagination covers over any bad acting or animation. Unless you have no imagination... Watch it from the beginning and just let yourself get sucked in to the amazing fights and ever increasing displays of power.
