    It's Dragon Ball, but with Goku grown up, married to Chi Chi, has a son, and can go Super Saiyan.

    Dragon Ball Z is very slow compared to Dragon Ball. They tried to make an entire episode out of one chapter each time, so... pretty much in each episode there's 5 minutes of them doing nothing but staring at each other.

    Hell, people make jokes about how slow it is, like it'd take somebody from the DBZ world three hours to change a lightbulb.

    The manga's soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo awesome.
    Basically, it's the king of shounen battle anime/manga.
    Lots of awesomely cheesy lines, but insanely keeeeewl.

    Dragon Ball is a Japanese manga started in 1984 and continued until 1995.

    In 1986 the anime version of Dragon Ball started along with Dragon Ball Z.

    Dragon ball is about a Kid who fell from space (he's an alien, called a saiyan, though similar to a human, but with a monkeys tail, super strength, and the ability to transform into a giant ape during a full moon). He's raised by and old man who finds him in the forest, but dies, and leaves to him a Dragon Ball, which if collected all seven of them, and grant a single wish. He goes out and fights bad guys.

    Dragon Ball Z is him grown up, he fights moar bad guys. The end.

    It's more interesting than I made it sound, so you should watch it. They can be pretty funny, too.

    I read that these filler moments were edited out in Dragon Ball Z Kai or they added a new scene in replace of it as like you said sometime its a whole 5 mins of them doing nothing.
    Hopefully that would help it from dragging so much.

    If you ever plan to start watching it, I really recommend you watch Dragonball Kai instead of Dragonball Z. It basically tells you the same story like in Dragonball Z, but in only 100 episodes instead of 290 (!). So a lot less filler, no more grunting for a whole episode while they are powering up. It just goes a lot faster. Not to mention it's available in 1080p.

    It doesn't tell the Dragonball saga though, so it starts with Goku (the main character) as an adult and with a kid.

    I do remember seeing Dragon Ball Evolution, it was an awesome movie. Is the movie like the anime at all?

    Like most cartoon to live action movies, they don't seem to do the originals much justice.
