Goku is my favorite DB character / Hit is the best to come from super. Fu is my favorite to come out of heroes

Yes and no. Yes, Goku is super big, but I still don't think he's reached the "household name" level where he could be casually referenced in a sitcom and the vast majority of viewers would know who he is (like, say, Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny). I think more people are familiar with Dragon Ball the franchise than Goku the character, in the same way I think more people know about Pokemon than Ask Ketchum.
I don't hold grudges. Let's vehemently argue today and casually have a beer together tomorrow.

Not remotely close. He can’t touch household names like Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Mario, etc...hell, the only anime character in existence who might possibly be a cultural icon at this point is Pikachu.

Dragonball is in Top 10 highest grossing media franchises. Goku is the most popular anime character. Huge worldwide appeal, in general one of the most popular characters in fiction. Up there with the likes of supes. Bats, mario, pikachu, mickey mouse, spiderman etc
