DBZ Abridged covers this in depth how shitty of a parent goku is. It's actually called out several times. And it's fucking hilarious.

Consider that dummies child hood though, of course he was a shitty dad. Every one that was raising him up was kinda a bastard.

All of his friends were complete sociopaths.

A girl tried to bang every guy who had anything she wanted, even tried to sexually manipulate a child

A shape-shifting borderline sex offender

An old man with a turtle fetish who was an actual sex offender

A womanizing thief who lied and manipulated everyone but his pet cat

Ironically his only decent friend was Krillin whose worst crime was just being a selfish asshole

A giant who practically sold off his daughter at the ripe age of 8

Same daughter who physically abused her forced husband

I don't remember much about Tien and his dwarf clown sidekick but if memory serves they were the only two good dudes

Needless to say the original Dragon Ball was really fucking weird

Tenshinhan and Chiaotzu were part of the Crane School so they were kinda assassins. But they turned out okay after getting beat up once, fair and square in a tournament no less.

Too bad Toriyama hates them for some reason.

I watched bits and pieces of DB and DBZ way back when. Just started Super recently and have been thinking “man who are all these people, maybe I should go back and rewatch. Reading this I think I’m good

Supposedly DBZ is good.

I haven't heard many positives about original Dragon Ball though.

The original DB is awesome, albeit more childlike than dbz.

Og DB is a waay better show! More childish maybe, but much more fun to watch. It actually goes downhill when it transitions to DBZ and all the fights start to drag on for 5 episodes while Goku is on his way there. Piccolo is the lamest villain ever and mr popo is just… offensive. At least they way they draw him is. Kami is one of the only good things about those later eps.
