When Cartoon Network aired this movie, they edited all uses of the word "Hell" and removed the opening, pre-credits scene. But since the pre-credits segment sets up the rest of the movie, Piccolo's line "I'm gonna pay you back for what you did to me!" no longer makes sense.
Released on DVD in America twice. The initial release was dubbed by Pioneer with the Ocean Group, and was a very accurate dub. It was later reissued with a new, less-accurate dub by FUNimations in-house voice actors. While this version had a less accurate dub and fewer bonus features, it did feature a superior Japanese subtitled version, translated by Steven J. Simmons.
This movie has had two Video CD releases by Speedy: one features the Pioneer release with the first English dub done by Ocean Studios, and the other featuring Speedy's own internal dub, subtitled The Vengeance of the Demon King.
