Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z (partially found English dubs by Creative Products Corporation; mid/late 1980s to 1998)
Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z are well-known Japanese anime productions, originally a manga series serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump starting in 1984. The anime was produced from the mid to late 1980s.
Following a failed attempt in the United States to dub Dragon Ball into English by Harmony Gold, a company called Creative Products Corporation had produced an English dub of the first Dragon Ball Z story arc exclusively for the Philippines that aired on RPN 9. After the first story arc of Dragon Ball Z finished airing, Creative Products went back and dubbed the original Dragon Ball anime in English in its entirety. In 1996 the company also dubbed the 5th and 6th Dragon Ball Z movies into a single compilation movie entitled Dragon Ball Z: The Greatest Rivals. This movie was released theatrically and received an extremely limited VHS release in the Philippines. Following the release of The Greatest Rivals was a soundtrack CD and cassette titled Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z: Songs of a High Spirited Saga Volume 1 which contained the dubbed versions of songs from their dubs of the series. A second volume is said to exist, but there is currently no evidence. There was also a compilation dub of the 10th and 11th Dragon Ball Z movies that was dubbed in English and played theatrically in the Philippines in 1998. The only footage of the movie is a trailer that was uploaded by YouTube user "sandiessss". It is unknown if Creative Products was involved with this dub or not. All of these English dubs are very obscure and were only aired once on Filipino television before being redubbed into Tagalog.
