The Harmony Gold dub (also known as "The Lost Dub") is the first English dub of Dragon Ball released in the 1980s. Harmony Gold also made a dub of Dragon Ball: Curse of the Blood Rubies and Dragon Ball: Mystical Adventure as well.


The original music was kept but all of the characters names were changed with the exception of Master Roshi, Tao, and Chiaotzu. Harmony Gold also came around to dubbing one episode of Dr. Slump changing the name of all the characters for occidental names, except Arale.

In comparison to the first FUNimation dub, it was a little less censored and more faithful to the original. Many of the perveted antics of Roshi and Oolong (known as Mao-Mao) were kept, such as a scene of the former slapping the butt of a stewardess in Mystical Adventure.

It is unknown exactly how many episodes were dubbed by Harmony Gold. It is believed that they only dubbed about 5 episodes as pilots alongside their dubs of Movies 1 and 3, which were edited together as an 80-minute special. The dub was test marketed on several independent stations around the United States, but failed to find an audience, and was canceled. This dub was not released to home video with the exception of a very limited VHS release of Movies 1 and 3 by Streamline Pictures.

The Harmony Gold dub of Dragon Ball was recorded in Hollywood, CA in Intersound Recording Studios.
