I feel that the original Dragon Ball series is overshadowed by Dragon Ball Z.

People should definitely check it out. Masako Nozawa's voice for Kid Goku is very cute.

@8000 Saiyans Actually there is nothing wrong feeling that way. Z`s popularity in the west was preety big that alot of casual fans are surprised that Z wasn`t the series that started off the saga.

Easily the best dubbed saga of Dragonball by FUNimation pre-Kai, and for the most part, their dub is still pretty good- it takes a few liberties with the script writing at times, but it's a lot better in that regard than Z or GT's dubs were. The voice acting is also fitting, too, and the Japanese score is intact as well (except for one insert song during the Red Ribbon Saga, but that's purely nitpicking anyway).

I can't say anything about the Blue Water dub since I haven't seen much of it, although from what I've heard, it seems pretty good as well.

Why is it 1996? shouldn't it be 1995 since that's the first noteworthy dub.

I never recommend using the Dragon Ball Wikia for VA info. A lot of it isn't correct.
