    "Silly" is an understatement.

    It is, and is meant to be, I mean hard to take one of it's deadliest villains, Buu, a chubby candy loving childish pink monster as a serious attempt at an intimidating villain, though I'm waiting for the backlash of fans that take it too seriously, though they tend to hang in battle forums

    I take Dragon Ball Z VERY SERIOUSLY.

    Epic!

    I prefer these scenes over the whole Namek-arc! XD

    The only thing that I think anyone involved with DBZ ever took serious was their dedication to cool fight scenes and an unfettered love of power ups... and screaming. Screaming is probably what the creators took the most serious of all.

    Damn that song, I told my friend not to bother look it up translated I didn't no it either but knew for a fact it made absolutely no sense, he came back to me and my gawd the look on his face said everything I needed to know.

    I'm just grateful Europe got a better intro :)

    Kino88on Nov. 20, 2012 at 5:22 p.m.

    Oh yes, silly, very silly indeed, I think even as a kid I knew that on some level,

    Kaaaaa..... maaaa.... haaaa.... maaaa.... hahahahahaahahaha!!!

    EganTheVile1on Nov. 20, 2012 at 11:26 p.m.

    while I knew the fan-boys would weigh in as "anti-silly" advocates, they instead made the case, this series is silly, no way around it, I mean c'mon, they have a talking dog as president of Earth

    YotaruVegetaon Nov. 21, 2012 at 6:57 a.m.

    Kid Buu is no joke, though. I imagine he is no fun to hang out with.

    KingSolomonon Nov. 21, 2012 at 8:55 a.m.

    great ep, and and yeah dragonball is where all the origional fun was at!

    Well, Dragon Ball was a gag manga
