The AB Groupe is a French business group in the field of broadcasting.

It was founded in 1977 by Jean-Luc Azoulay and Claude Berda as a music production company, and in 1987 went into the world of television.

In English speaking regions, the AB Groupe is best known for their English dub of the Dragon Ball Z films that were aired on Toonami UK and released on DVD out-of-order in the Netherlands. This dub features an unknown cast and became known as the "Big Green dub" because Piccolo's name was changed to "Big Green". AB Groupe's dub of Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest was released on DVD by Warner Vision in the UK under the name "The Strongest Guy In The World" in 2003.[1]

The AB Groupe also distributed the Blue Water Studios dubs of Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball GT in Canada and Europe.
