I can't stand Goku's Japanese voice. Or Krillin....Or Gohan's...Their voices are just way too high especially with all the screaming. It's probably one of the few anime I can count on one hand that I prefer the dubs to the original.
Nozawa Goku is fine. Hell, Nozawa Goten is fine.
Nozawa Gohan and Bardock are just terrible.
The faces of a Straw Hat.
Ocean dub never clicked with me
heck i count the amount of canadian dubs i like on two fingers

Original score, weird choices on translation but otherwise intact (goku was never a hero of justice, but they call flying "flying throughout the skies" every time), and memorable and cool voices, they changed goku and gohan once grown up but left the original goku voice for gohan and goten, chanted krilin and bulma only because the originals died, and just plain seemed like they had fun doing their work.

It's that Sean Schemmel is terrible in the role. He doesn't get the fun at all, he doesn't do the yells very well, and his overall line delivery is just...bad. The Mexican dub is manly and is fantastic. (As is the entire Mexican cast. They also left in the original music and didn't edit anything.) And the Abridged voice nails the actual personality and gets Goku right.
It's mostly that Sean Schemmel is bad. ANd as bad as his Goku is, his King Kai is even worse.
And also Abridged Goku is perfect.

King Kai speaks with a weird lisp, Krillin is nasaly despite having no nose, Buu sounds like someone inhaled too much helium, Vegeta sounds like he screwed up his throat being perpetually pissed
Eh I kinda think he improved with Kai, but that's just me. I can go either way, Schemmel or Nozawa.
Now his King Kai, I wish Kai replaced him for Doc Morgan, the narrator, considering in the Japanese version, the narrator and Kaio have the same VA, so it's like he himself is telling the story to everyone. That being said, Yanami's performance sadly got stiffer and stiffer with age.
YMMV. I think it fits his jolly exterior., Buu sounds like someone inhaled too much helium
