Regarding the part about Chi-Chi and Goku having money, didn't Chi-Chi inherit some from her father? I remember her saying at the beginning of the Buu saga about how they were running out.

What game is this?

I found an old school commercial for a Dragon Ball game, one that seems like it might have been on the Famicom. Any idea what game this is?

Is it worse than the stories of the "Dragon Ball Z" movies though? I'm inclined to say yes, it is. Well, I'm not... Are you thinking of a movie in particular, out of curiosity? I'm just saying that in the movies, where you have decent plots, although sometimes simplistic, and interesting villains i...

A lot of them are available at Toonami Digital Arsenal. And I'm talking about the ones from the late 90s even, like the ones with Moltar.

Wasn't Goten's first transformation to SSJ at some point before we were explicitly shown? Given we don't know the true details, anger could have been involved in some way.

Yeah, it's definitely the wrong track being played. I'm pretty sure the song originally used was Kyoufu no Ginyu Tokusentai. And believe me it was dramatic sounding. ;)

TVguide.com also reports "Arrival of Raditz" and Yahoo's TV listings say "Seized with Fear".

Where does the Cell Saga start at? I haven't watched it in so long.
Technically it begins with the Arrival of Trunks and Mecha Freeza.

A clip to remind ourselves of how cool the Ocean dub was. This is why I'll take Shuki Levy's music over Faulconer's any day. Personally I enjoy it the way it is now, by that I mean I enjoy Drummond as the young & bratty Vegeta, and Sabat as the older, more focused Vegeta. Agreed, after seeing scene...

On a similar note, why is it supposed to be F-R-E-E-Z-A not F-R-I-E-Z-A even though both spellings are correct (and pronounced the same in English and Japanese)? I believe it's because the spelling with ie was made up by Funimation even though the ee spelling had already been used before in fandom ...

Why all the hang-ups with "saiyan" and "saiya-jin"? Wouldn't either term be correct since they're both referring to the same thing and they both are used in their relative versions of the show? What do they call "saiya-jin" in other languages besides English? Wouldn't the other-language equivalents...

So I have a question about Cell. Wasn't it established unofficially that the nucleus can travel throughout the body? Perhaps when his head was destroyed the nucleus was (luckily for him) somewhere else?

I don't see why you'd set your PC to a resolution higher than 1280x960 even if your monitor is 20 inches. But each to their own...
Because most wide (16:10) 20" monitors have a native resolution of 1680x1050.
