* FanEdit: the slightly obscure but very well-received ''Dragon Ball Recut'', which removes as much filler from the anime adaptation as possible, similarly to what ''Anime/DragonBallKai'' was to ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. While some filler still remains, mainly that which is too tightly interwoven with the source material's story (i.e. the Pilaf gang's appearance in episode 1, where Mai is the one to explain how the Dragon Balls work instead of Bulma), the edit is still able to do a good job cutting the 153-episode anime down to a mere 82. The author of ''Dragon Ball Recut'' is also currently working on a similar filler-free edit of ''Dragon Ball Z'' and an edit of ''Dragon Ball Kai'' to remove whatever filler is still present there. Information about ''Dragon Ball Recut'' can be found on [[http://www.kanzenshuu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=34866 this]] ''Kanzenshuu'' thread.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The Original Broadcast Audio, audio for ''Dragon Ball'' and ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' taken from VCR recordings of each episode's initial broadcast in the Kanto region of Japan. This audio is highly sought-out as it offers the closest quality to the show's master tapes, which Creator/ToeiAnimation wiped both for economic reasons and [[ExecutiveMeddling because executives at the time]] [[NewMediaAreEvil were still skeptical of home media]].

*** IRONICALLY, Goku himself name-wise is a rip-off of [[Literature/JourneyToTheWest another character]] who used the name "Goku" ([[BilingualBonus albeit in Chinese via the same characters: 孫悟空]]) way beforehand via Chinese mythology.

* OrphanedReference: The Penguin Village episodes during the Red Ribbon arc. Because ''Manga/DrSlump'' [[NoDubForYou hasn't been given a proper English release]], some American viewers are scratching their heads.

** Goku is the direct base and inspiration of several of the shonen protagonists in this generation, including but limited to: [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Naruto Uzumaki]], [[Franchise/OnePiece Monkey D. Luffy]], Manga/ZatchBell, {{Toriko}}, [[Manga/FairyTail Natsu]], [[Manga/HunterxHunter Gon]], and Anime/{{Flint|TheTimeDetective}}. Besides the basic "lovable idiot" aspect of the character, his imitators also tend to copy several other character traits of his, such as his [[BloodKnight extreme love of fighting]], [[BigEater his equally big love of food]], [[AllLovingHero his immensely compassionate and unselfish nature]], his [[ChasteHero lack of sexual awareness]], and the [[AnimeHair improbable hairdo]]. More often than not, though, said expy would have his energy level [[MemeticMutation over 9000]]. This means, that every badass thing, no, every ''single'' thing, these guys do; it's because of Goku.

** When FUNimation first took over the series, Creator/ChrisCason briefly voiced Tien and Mr. Popo. He left the show right before the Garlic Jr. saga, and Creator/JohnBurgmeier took over as Tien while Chris Sabat added Mr. Popo to his large roster of characters. Both roles were redubbed for the 2007 remastered release. Cason eventually returned to FUNimation and was even brought back in to voice Mr. Popo for ''Kai'', while Burgmeier kept voicing Tien.

* ThePeteBest: Funimation's first in-house dub, of the second ''Dragon Ball'' film, "Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle," featured Leslie Alexander as Bulma, which was her only time playing the character. Tiffany Volmer and Creator/MonicaRial are much better associated for the character, the former providing her voice up until the end of the 2000's, and the latter taking over from 2010 onward.

** While Linda Young is a bit of a ReclusiveArtist, those who have worked with her say she is a very sweet lady, and would even bake cookies for the cast/crew, much different than her character Frieza.
** Chris Sabat is nothing like Vegeta or Piccolo. He's actually very nice and approachable to his fans.



** ''Curse of the Blood Rubies'' adapts the first Dragon Ball hunt, with the original character King Gurume substituting Emperor Pilaf as the ultimate antagonist.
