There are so many great starter animes out there it's hard to choose. I'll have to admit I am a bit bias towards choosing late 80s/90s anime because that's where I got my start :) so I choose....
The original DB
I figure it would be good to have an anime with funny moments and an easy plot/plots to follow. And you have a nice blend of characters:
The spunky hotheaded Bulma
Master Roshi, the old funny pervert
Krillin: crafty, bald, and sharp
Yamcha, the "lady killer"
Worthy Adversaries And the ever optimist always hungry Goku :) I do believe that the plots in db don't take as long as those in dbz, so its good for impatient viewers as well
