Time flies and Dragon Ball fans are feeling a little old after learning that the anime franchise is turning 32 this year!
Anime fans were introduced to Goku and Bulma’s quest to collect the dragon balls in 1986. The plucky adventure series is different from the action-fueled Dragon Ball Z sequel that international fans are familiar with, but the original was a trailblazer in Japan.
Strong, but dense heroes, a ditzy female sidekick, and enemy-turned-friends have become anime staples thanks to Dragon Ball. And now, fans are celebrating the anime’s 32nd anniversary on Twitter.
February 26th. On this day in history, the Church bans Galileo for his crazy-ass theories. Tex Avery and Johhny Cash are born. And over in Japan, Fuji TV begins airing a road trip comedy show starring a horny valley girl and a feral monkey child. pic.twitter.com/0DFOj7LLKQ

32 years ago today Dragon ball made its anime debut on Fuji TV. Since then we've seen Goku grow from a naive child into the proud warrior he is today. Here's some photos showing just how far Goku has come. #DragonBallAnniversary pic.twitter.com/78LEZ1TdwF
