U.S. DBZ Episode Summaries

Pojo Note.  This Episode Summary List is based off the Episode #'s when the show first aired in the U.S. on Cartoon Network in 1999-2001 or so.  That's when this page was established.  The early episodes of the show were edited so much that shows were actually merged together.  The Episode List is considerably shorter than the Original Japanese DBZ Episode Listing.  Now, Funimation is redoing many of the early episodes in "uncut" fashion.  It would be tedious & confusing for us to redo this list.  This list matches up with the original releases of VHS Tapes & DVD's when they originally hit streets around 1999-2001.
