The AB Group is a French business group in the field of broadcasting responsible for the dubbing of the movies in 2003 for UK audiences. The dub is notorious among fans for the script and the changing of character's names (for example Piccolo is known as Big Green). Despite being aired on Toonami, only the movies Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might, Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest and Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug were distributed on DVD due to poor sales. However, movies 2 and 3 of Dragon Ball, the first nine movies and two specials of Dragon Ball Z were dubbed by this company. They were released in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Ireland on VHS and DVD. Some of the names of the films were changed, but most resembled the Japanese film titles. It was founded in 1977 by Jean-Luc Azoulay and Claude Berda as a music production company, and in 1987 went into the world of television.
They also sent copyright takedown notices to TeamFourStar for their DBZ Abridged series.
