Podcast Episode #0366
Published by 21 July 2014, 2:56 PM EDT

Back on Episode #0288 of our podcast, we provided a primer detailing some of the most important Dr. Slump characters (in conjunction with their crossover during the Red Ribbon Army arc of Dragon Ball). With the impending release of Discotek’s Dr. Slump Movies 1-5 DVD set — along with some of our own work on said product! — we only thought it was appropriate to revisit Toriyama’s original famous series. This time around, we took a look back at some of the ideas that Toriyama first used in Dr. Slump and later borrowed, adapted, or sometimes even flat-out copied for Dragon Ball so many years later!

We are also giving away a free copy of the Dr. Slump movie set!
See below for full details.

Episode #0366! VegettoEX and Herms discuss several ideas that originated in “Dr. Slump” that Akira Toriyama either revisited or flat-out recycled later in “Dragon Ball”. A mad scientist with a spy robot collecting data on a hero so that he can create killer androids? A tournament to decide the strongest person on Earth? A final villain who happens to be a “majin”? Which series is this?! Buy Discotek’s “Dr. Slump” Movies 1-5 set for more fun!

    All this Dr. Slump talk has gotten me re-interested in the series, and I’ll probably start collecting it again. Well, that’s what I would be saying if I could find a copy of volume 7 for less than 80 dollars. I know it’s available digitally, but I’ve got the first 6 volumes on my shelf so I’d like to complete that collection.
