Dragon Ball GT is the third and final anime series in the Dragon Ball franchise and sequel to Dragon Ball Z. The 64 episode series was produced by Toei Animation, and premiered in Japan on Fuji TV from February 2, 1996 until its conclusion on November 19, 1997. Unlike the other anime series in the Dragon Ball franchise, Dragon Ball GT is not directly adapted from the manga series written by Akira Toriyama, but the same characters are used.
Funimation Entertainment licensed the series for an English language release and broadcast in the United States. Funimation's English dub of the series aired on Cartoon Network's Toonami block from November 7, 2003 to April 16, 2005. The original television broadcast skipped the first 16 episodes of the series. Instead, Funimation created a composition episode entitled "A Grand Problem," which used scenes from the skipped episodes to summarize the story. The skipped episodes were later shown on Toonami as "The Lost Episodes" after the series' initial run.
AB Groupe (in association with Blue Water Studios) developed an alternate dub for Europe and Canada and was aired on YTV and Toonami UK, which divided the episodes into two seasons instead of sagas. Funimation's English dub began re-airing in the U.S. on Nicktoons on January 16, 2012.
The series was later released on DVD as a two Season set. The first set was released on December 9, 2008, and the second set was released on February 10, 2009. A "Complete Series" DVD box set was later released on September 21, 2010.
