Very Funny!

Author: umgekehrt from Köln, Germany
8 June 2001

This is a very funny animation series about a robot from the future named Doraemon. This robot was sent by Nobita's grand-grandson or something to help Nobita through every little bit of trouble. Nobita happened to be a lazy (but sometimes brilliant) boy who is madly in love with Shizuka, and has two friends: "Giant" Takeshi and Suneo. Whenever Nobita gets into trouble Doraemon always helps with a futuristic gadget which then is misused by Nobita and/or his friends. This series is a legend in Japan and should be released in its entirety as DVD in English, German, Japanese, Indonesian, and Swahili!

Doraemon the Robot

Author: mauwwendysantoso ( from Legokhangseur, Cigeuleuh
5 October 2001

Doraemon is a cat-type robot in the 22nd century. He is 129.3 cm tall, the girth of the chest are 129.3 cm and his weight is 129.3 kg. He has a pocket of the fourth dimension at his stomach. His favorite food is dorayaki which he eats everyday. He has a younger sister whose name is Dorami.

He came to the house of Nobi Nobita from the 22nd century taking a time machine, and he lives with the Nobi. Nobita, the only child of the family, is a friend of Doraemon. He is bullied by his friend Jaian and Suneo almost everyday. In such a time, Doraemon takes out tools made in the 22nd century from his pocket of the fourth dimension for Nobita to punish them. So, Nobita always trusts Doraemon.

Not only he has tools to punish bullies, but he also has various tools from his pocket. For example, take-copter is a tool to fly in the sky. It has a propeller and put it on head. Docodemo-door is a door which enables people to go anyplace. Small light is a light to make a person or objects small.

I said Doraemon is a cat-type robot, but he does not have ears, which his ears were eaten by rats. Therefore, he dislikes rats and this is his weak point. If you pull his small tail, he will stop moving. This is also his weak point.

He was created by F. Fujiko.

Doraemon Forever

Author: fathskie from indonesia
6 June 2006

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This show started showing in my local TV when I was on my 2nd year in elementary school.. Now I'm 22 and married, and the Doraemon series is still playing!! The same hour, same TV station. Different viewer of course, but nonetheless share the same fame. I own almost complete series of its original manga (Japanese comic). What so good about Doraemon is that it keeps me dreaming.. even after years I still love to read it and watch the cartoon. I can laugh, angry, even cry watching it. Google-V, Astro Boy, Gundam has its own era.. but in here, in my country, Doraemon remains the ONLY cartoon show that stands the time (well-- probably besides Dragon Ball)

*SPOILER*: People do not know what's the ending suppose to be. I heard it somewhere that it has two ending, first: Nobita woke up and realized that his experience with Doraemon is just a dream, he was dreaming for a very loooong time. And second: Doraemon got broken, damaged, screwed. It's impossible to fixed. From the time, Nobita changed, not again as a spoil and lazy kid, but determined, hardworking, smart, and discipline. And in the future, he trigger the making of doraemon, and somehow he's the one that send doraemon back to to assist him as a child..

I give it 9/10 (minus one point because the simple graphic AND unclear ending :p )

Why is this not on in the UK?

Author: despatx from United Kingdom
12 September 2005

I spend a lot of time in Barcelona, and the show that I never miss – indeed, Spanish TV's saving grace – is Doraemon. I watch it in catalan, and it is huge over there, absolutely massive. And it is brilliant! Just the sheer inventiveness of the gadgets and the scenarios – I mean, the guy writing the stories is seriously warped. Yes, it is desperately formulaic, but every episode is as enjoyable as the last one, and there are often slightly dark undercurrents – and the story is always fast-paced. Plus the cat, Doraemon, is a very lovable character, endlessly patient, while Nobita is a total waste of space, but easily identified with. I don't have a TV in the UK, and am quite happy to carry on watching it in catalan, but I can't help feeling a lot of people are missing out big time... Or perhaps it was on British TV long ago, and I missed it?
