A Guide to DBZ's Initial broadcast on U.S. networks

Recommended Posts

During it's Initial syndication broadcast in the US, we had two "blocks" of episodes before Saban and FUNi parted ways. These episodes used the much-loved Ocean Dub

Season 1: The Saiyan Conflict - September 13, 1996 - May 24, 1997 - Aired through local listings

Season 2: The Namek Saga - September 13, 1997 - May 23, 1998 - Aired through local listings (around this block, FUNi would split the third movie "Tree of Might" into 3 episodes)

When CN picked up the rights in August 1998, FUNimation would finish up the rest of the series by dubbing it in-house

Season 3: Ginyu and Frieza Sagas - September 13 - November 3, 1999 - Aired on weekday afternoons

"Mini-Series": Garlic Jr. Saga - April 8 - May 27, 2000; September 1, 2000 - Aired on Saturday mornings (108 (93) aired as part of Toonami's 24hr "Full Cycle" marathon, while 115 and 116 (100 and 101) aired together.)

Season 4: The Android and Cell Sagas - September 4 - December 29, 2000 - Aired on weekday afternoons

Season 5: Tournament and Majin Buu Sagas - September 10 - November 27, 2001 - Aired on weekday afternoons (Toonami aired 202 (187) during this season's second run)

Season 6: Majin Buu Continuation and Fusion Sagas - September 16 - November 19, 2002 - Aired on weekday afternoons

Final Season (7) - Kid Buu Saga [End of Z] - March 17 - April 7, 2003  - Aired on weekday afternoons

So basically, While there are 9 seasons on the modern DVD and BluRay, in actuality, There are 7 seasons of Z that aired on TV.

I've heard there were only 7 seasons of the show on US television, but since this was before my time I never knew the exact way they were broken up. Wow, season 4 was big. The whole Cell saga, what would that be, 80 episodes? :classic_laugh:
