Frieza Saga and Cell Saga for different reasons. Seeing Goku reaching SS was mindblowing when I was a kid and I remember the entire saga very well, and Cell because of Gohan's overall arc...until The Great Sayian Man happened and ruined everything they did for Gohan in the Cell Saga.
why did they ruin gohan? I am made at akira for doing that.

I don't think we will ever get a straight answer. I know Gohan was intended to take over but Goku was too popular as the main character to let it happen.

That and everyone loved Vegeta so Gohan got pushed to the side.

I disagree. Gohan was the most popular character in the Manga during his fight with Cell. Toriyama just pushed him back into the schoolboy role he once had, and his popularity plummeted. I liked Mystic Gohan, but he also failed to live up to SSJ2 Gohan's charisma during the Cell Games.

I meant for merchandising. I should have specified. Goku was a money maker.

Gohan was my favorite in the Cell Games and I honestly couldn't wait to see what he did next and then, well, you know... lol

That might be why Toei Animation made Goku the star in so many of their movies... LOL.

What happened to Gohan is a shame and a crime. I can't fathom letting so much potential go to waste but they did.
There really wasn't any implication that he would be a schoolboy like Chi Chi wanted him to be after the Cell Games, much less give up fighting. I hate to say it, but he was a more serious warrior during Freeza and Cell than he was in Boo.

I wouldn't hate to say that, it's very true. I honestly wish they didn't skip ahead so many years. They should have shown teen Gohan growing up a bit and getting stronger. That could have been his time to shine. Opportunity wasted.

What happened over the course of all those years? He got complacent. Complacency can and will get you killed. As was almost the case when he had to fight Dabura and even closer to the fact when he tried to fight Majin Buu before training with Old Kai.

Indeed. But what I was alluding to is that Akira shouldn't have written it that way. They had too amazing of a character to let go to waste like that. They should have had him carry on his father's legacy properly. In fact, that was always Goku's intention. Even during the Buu saga, he wants his children to have a chance to beat Buu instead of relying on him.
