Old Dub Title Card Image Request

Post by VegettoEX » Wed Dec 16, 2009 2:15 pm

Does anyone have the DVD "Namek" from the original Pioneer run of FUNimation's first DBZ dub?

Image

If so, could you take me a screencap of the title card for episode 34, "The Ruthless Frieza"? Thanks!

Taken from not-youtube, so this may be of lower quality then desired.

[quote="Brakus"]For all the flack that FUNimation gets on this forum for their quote about DBZ, there's some modicum of truth to it: a 9-year-old is born every day. Or in some cases, "reborn". DBZ may be a kids' show, but it's been so close to so many hearts all over Japan, America, and quite possibly, even the world.[/quote]

Oh... there is much worse, I actually took a screen shot of like every title card from this release a while ago and was gonna start a topic about them. But then I figured people didn't really wanna talk about bad title cards so I sent that idea to the next dimension.

Ah, I see what you did there.

I honestly don't remember most of the title cards from the early days. I've gotten so used to the original Japanese title cards and the ones FUNi used after Season 3 (the actual third season on CN, not the made-up one for DVD releases).

I liked the first dub's title cards; I always thought they were cool. They were even animated!

Not to take the topic in another direction, but were the dub's title cards redone for the season sets, or are they the same as they aired on CN?

I think what Hujio means is that the "seasons" as divided in to DVD sets were made up on the spot and have nothing to do with how the show was aired on TV.
