Anime Description: Dragon Ball

Once upon a time, a little boy lived in the wilderness. Then, along came a young lady on a quest for seven magical balls...and the world was never the same again.

Dragon Ball is the mystical, whimsical adventure of Goku, the search for the magical Dragon balls, and the myriad people he meets in his travels: from the savvy Bulma to the shape-changing pig Oolong, from the Turtle Hermit Master Roshi to the Oxking, and so on.

The original adventure of Dragon Ball, though full of action, is also much more whimsical and light-hearted then its successors, making it more appealing to younger audiences.
