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. 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.
