This is a timeline regarding the events of the Dr. Slump series and related events that happen in Dragon Ball. The timeline is in the year format the Dr. Slump series goes by rather than the format the Dragon Ball series goes by.

Calendar System[]

Penguin Village Months
January Boxfish
February Rainbow Trout
March Sea Squirt
April Crucian Carp
May Flying Fish
June Sea Anemone
July Stone Moroko (Topmouth Gudgeon)
August Porcupinefish
September Crayfish (Crawdad)
October Penkeigani
November Plankton
December Coelacanth

The calendar system in Penguin Village functions from each month is named after a sea creature or fish with a normal year number. The order of date in Penguin Village is the day number of the month and the normal year number. An example would be the 17th of Flying Fish, 1980. Throughout the rest of the world, the months are normal but the years aren't (the rest of the world apparently uses the AGE calendar used in Dragon Ball). An example of that would be May 17th, AGE 745 which is the exact same date as 17th of Flying Fish, 1980 on Penguin Village's calendar.
