The DBZ: Garlic Jr. Saga Mini-Marathon is a Toonami mini-marathon that aired on Friday, September 1, 2000 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. The marathon featured the final 4 episodes of the Garlic Jr. saga of Dragon Ball Z including the premiere of the final episode "Krillin's Proposal" at 5:30 PM. Although the saga had previously aired on the Rising Sun from April 8th to May 27th, the final episode ("Krillin's Proposal") went unaired until this marathon. This mini-marathon was followed by episodes of Tenchi in Tokyo and Batman: The Animated Series from 6:00-7:00 PM.

This mini-marathon came at the tail-end of the saga's premiere on the weekday afternoon Toonami block (Tuesday, August 29th - Friday, September 1st) and was aired in order to complete the saga so that new episodes of the series (Trunks saga) could begin airing on Toonami the following Monday.[1] Other than the premiere of the 10 episode Garlic Jr. saga, Dragon Ball Z had been in reruns on Toonami since the final episode of the Frieza saga premiered on November 3, 1999.
