@Mechanical_Ape: Yes, I remember trying to watch this show because it was anime and there just wasn't a lot on TV at the time, but it was just too dumb. I'm a big fan of comedies and I like silly and zany stuff, but this one seemed to be aimed at preschoolers or those afflicted with a mental handicap. I don't know anything about the original Japanese version, so I won't speculate on its quality, but the English version was just horrid. The rose-colored glasses of nostalgia may cause some to challenge my opinion, but like a lot of the treasures from our childhood, some things are better left as memories.
As for changes made, I'm always entertained when I see the differences between what aired on American TV and what the original version looked like. We're all aware of some NA localization cuts these days like Goku talking off Bulma's panties in the original DB, any hint of the female form and changing Zoisites sex in Sailor Moon, Sanji's smoking, Mr "Satan" became "Hercule" in DBZ and James' boobie bounce when he was in drag in Pokemon. And, of course the on screen blood removed from too many shows to list.
I remember that growing up I used to watch Dragon Ball Z a lot.. I was kind of obsessed with it...... n.n Maybe that's why I was a tomboy growing up n.n I think The very first Anime I watched was Sailor Moon and even thought I don't remember anything about it I do remember my favorite was Sailor Mars!!!! Dunno why. Well, after that Pokemon and Digimon dunno in which order.. and then.... Naruto??? Well, I watched a couple of episodes of it, not more than five Until recently I became a great fan of it after my Bleach and Vampire Knight obsession...... Ahhh good times.... ^.^
