Toei Animation produces the Japanese anime television series Dragon Ball Z. It is a part of the Dragon Ball media universe, a sequel to the 1986 Dragon Ball anime series, and an adaptation of the final 325 chapters of the Akira Toriyama-penned Dragon Ball manga series, which appeared in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1988 to 1995. From April 1989 until January 1996, the series ran on Fuji TV in Japan. It was then dubbed for international distribution in at least 81 countries.

Viz Media first published the manga chapters that make up the anime's plot under the Dragon Ball Z moniker due to the anime's popularity in the United States. Due to the popularity of the anime, a variety of media came up with the Dragon Ball franchise's material. Despite multiple adaptations and re-releases, including a remastered broadcast dubbed Dragon Ball Z Kai, Dragon Ball Z has managed to maintain its status as a cultural classic.

Two follow-up television series, Dragon Ball GT (1996–1997) and Dragon Ball Super were produced after Dragon Ball Z. (2015–2018).
