While the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has given us a number of spectacles to ring in 2020's Turkey Day, Dragon Ball fans were heartbroken to see that Son Goku, the Saiyan protagonist of Akira Toriyama's popular Shonen series, was nowhere to be found this year! Two years ago, to celebrate the arrival of Dragon Ball Super: Broly, the franchise unleashed Super Saiyan Blue Goku upon an unsuspecting New York City to celebrate the third feature length film of the sequel series that added the Legendary Super Saiyan of Broly to the main continuity of the series!
Did you miss Goku from hovering above the crowd of onlookers during this year's Thanksgiving Day Parade? What other Dragon Ball characters should get Macy's balloons of their own? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Dragon Ball!

There Must Be Consequences
Goku's balloon has been removed from the #MacysDayParade in protest over his controversial choice to give Moro a Senzu Bean.— LIAM A. C. / Lac The Watcher (@LacTheWatcher) November 26, 2020

It sucks that no Goku balloon float in this year's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Worst Thanksgiving Day Parade ever.— Nahum Dyer (@NahumDyer) November 26, 2020
