TFS DragonBall Z Abridged Episode 34


  • Journey to the West 
  • Doctor Who
  • The title is a reference to the X-Men comic & movie X-Men: Days of Future Past
  • Malcolm in the Middle


  • Instead of singing "Highway to Hell", Goku sings "Highway to HFIL", a reference to the censoring of the word "Hell" in the edited version of Dragon Ball Z.
  • This is the first instance where the word 'fuck' was not cut off, bleeped, or interrupted.
  • Bulma mocks Vegeta as being the "prince of all 2 saiyans". Vegeta corrects her as "3 and a half" before telling her to shut up. It's likely that the 3rd Saiyan in question is Nappa, but it is also possible that it could be his brother Tarble.
  • Trunks calls Son Goku "Sun Wukong". Son Goku is the Japanese reading of Sun Wukong, the character from Journey to the West that served as Goku's inspiration.
  • In the scene where Goku accidentally pushes Chi Chi through a wall, Gohan's response ("Run! She can only ground me!") is a reference to the cold open from Malcolm in the Middle season 3 episode 11, where Hal accidentally throws a spider at Lois and Dewey says the same line.


Trunks: So, you're Sun Wukong, right? (thinking) Dammit!
Goku: I'm Son Goku, yes.
Trunks: (still thinking)....Roll with it. (speaking) I'm Trunks. Nice to meet you.
Goku: Trunks, huh? So you're the one who wumped Freezer.
Trunks: Yes. I was actually wondering, how did he survive Namek?
Goku: Well, I kinda maybe sorta kept letting him go...yeah, probably a bad call.
Trunks: If I hadn't shown up, all your friends would be dead.
Goku: Hoo boy, the dragon wouldn't be happy about that one.

Krillin: Well Vegeta, now that Goku's here to compare, we can finally say for sure that that kid's a Super--
Vegeta: Utter one more word, and no dragon alive will be able to fix what I do to you!
Krillin: ...So, Tien, have you been lifting? 'Cause you are jacked!
Tien: Yeah, who knows? Maybe I'll be the next Super Saiyan.
Vegeta: (angry grunting)

Trunks: I don't know how to tell you this, but you don't make it to the battle, either. You die of heart failure the year before.
Goku: What? Why? How?
Trunks: High cholesterol.
Goku: From what?
Trunks: According to the coroner, too much bacon.
Goku: (goes Super Saiyan) You take that back!
Trunks: But listen! In the future, my mother has developed medication that will help level your cholesterol.
Goku: Is it grape flavored?
Trunks: I don't know, yes?
Goku: 'Cause I don't like grape.
Trunks: Then it's bacon flavored.
Goku: Yay!!!
