Tree Of Might TV Version

Post by Tanooki Kuribo » Tue Dec 14, 2004 8:13 pm

I remeber back in 1997 I had a Suncost flyer that advertised newly released DBZ videos. One of the videos was "The Tree Of Might TV Version" with Gohan and his pet dragon on the cover.

My question is, was this ever released? and did anyone besides me ever see this?

It was formally announced, but I'm 99% sure it never saw the light of day. I remember the ads and listings on AOL, myself.

We should probably count ourselves lucky; I remember watching the edited dub of the Tree of Might on television, it was terrible. For some reason they decided to edit out Tulleces' fingers when he was holding Gohans eyes open, so he has a very disturbing looking expression.

Yeah, the TV versions of both Tree of might and World's Finest are ugly. They use the Shuki Levy music. I'm pretty sure Dead Zone uses the original BGM on the TV version.

There was never a "TV-Version" made of anything other than DBZ movie 3, which aired the first of three-parts 15 November 1997, and the second two the next week (22 November 1997). It has Shuki Levy's score.

When all three were released to home video, all three of them (including movie 3, strangely released after movie 1 and before movie 2) had the original Japanese musical score, and in the case of movie 3, an all newly-recorded/re-done voice track.

When aired on Cartoon Network years later, the home video versions (the ONLY versions) of movies 1 and 2 were used (though slightly edited for TV), and the ORIGINAL old TV-Version of movie 3 was used (Ian Corlett, Shuki Levy, etc.).

The first three movies are going to be re-edited by FUNimation as well as the first 64 episodes or so from what I read on DBZSC. Aww man... My "The World's Strongest" DVD has Gohan singing in Japanese about Piccolo... cute singing but I must hear Gohan in english for that part! O_O

Kind of wierd they're re-doing the movies. I have them all, with Dead Zone and Tree of Might on dvd, and World's Strongest on video (I got it in 1999 and I'm currently too cheap to go and get the dvd).

I'd like to point out that ICv2 is not exactly the most reputable site in the world (they got all the numbers wrong, in this case, for example), so I wouldn't trust anything they say about the first three movies just yet. It makese sense, and all, but trust some more authoritative sources.

Ironically enough the french version DID. I remember seeing the VHS in the discount bins at Wallmart.
