Dragon Ball: The Legend of Shenlong (Japanese: ドラゴンボール 神龍の伝説, Rōmaji: Doragon Bōru: Shenron no Densetsu) is the 1st DB movie. Originally released in Japan on December 20th, 1986, between episodes 43 & 44. In its original theatrical run, it was just titled Dragon Ball, but for subsequent video release in Japan it was renamed. FUNimation's title is Curse of the Blood Rubies.

Like the other Dragon Ball movies, this film is not canonical to either the anime series or the original manga. In specific, this movie is a heavily modified retelling of the gathering of the Dragon balls in the "Son Gokū Saga" (FUNimation's saga: Emperor Pilaf Saga), but with King Gurmes taking Pilaf's role as the center villian. (Some footage from this movie, or perhaps vice versa, was used in the first handful of episodes of the series.) Like that initial saga, it depicts how Son Gokū meets up with Bulma, Yamcha, Oolong, and Pu-erh, and the first quest for the Dragon Balls. (These events would be retold again in the 10th Anniversary Movie, The Path to Ultimate Strength.) Anime (アニメ) is a style of animation originating in Japan. ...

The original Japanese movie featured a surprising amount of cartoon nudity, as did the early episodes of the series. For the US video release, this was censored out.
