It was then turned into an anime, shown on Fuji TV in Japan where it ran from 1989 to 1996 following Goku as he battles all kinds of strange beings from outer space, robots, and other foes. It was dubbed into multuple languagues in Europe, the US, and Asia, and now has a huge cult following even though it's nearly 20 years old. It's also spawned a modern day sequel, Dragon Ball Super which started in 2015 and continues the story from where the original left off.
