Dragon Ball Z has been telecasting on Cartoon Network India for many years. Previously, it stopped telecasting in the middle of Season 1. Then, it disappeared for years and then repeated the telecast up until the middle of the Frieza saga. The same happened with the Cell saga, up to the last run, where it stops before the Kid Buu episode.

So what is the reason for the disappearance of the show midseason every time? Why not complete the full run of a season, even when the remaining episodes are easily available on the internet?

There are some rumors that it's because of the violent content or promotion of Indian made cartoons. But I am searching for true reason behind it .

  • i know in america during its original run it was split up like this for translation purposes, wonder if its the same issue. – Tablemaker Apr 8 '13 at 21:45
  • @TylerShads Indian runs of the show are previously to delayed then original. So dubbing should not be the issue but not sure if it is. – Ankit Sharma Apr 8 '13 at 21:47

  • I think it's a financial thing. Cartoon Network India may have decided to buy the broadcasting rights of only half seasons, which would be cheaper. IF they had to buy rights, but maybe the channel in India is not officially Cartoon Network's property. Of course this is just a speculation. – paddotk Apr 16 '13 at 20:54
  • @poepje CN India is CN's official channel, so this can't be the case. – Ankit Sharma Apr 17 '13 at 18:39
