Doraemon - Cartoons Wikipedia

Doraemon was written by Fujiko Fujio and published by Shogakukan.
Doraemon's first episode was broadcasted on April 1, 1973.
There were a total of 2112 episodes of Doraemon.

                      Cartoons Wikipedia: Doreamon is about a robotic cat named Doraemon, who travels back in time from the 22nd century to aid a pre-teen boy called Nobita Nobi. Doraemon is sent back in time by a young boy named Sewashi Nobi to improve the circumstances of his great grandfather, Nobita, so that his descendants may enjoy a better future. In the original timeline, Nobita experienced nothing but misery and misfortune manifested in the form of poor grades and bullying throughout his life. This culminates in the burning down of a future business he sets up which leaves his family line beset with financial problems. In order to alter history and better the Nobi family's fortunes, Sewashi initially wanted to send a super-robot to protect Nobita, but with his meager allowance he could only afford an imperfectly-made factory-rejected toy: an anthropomorphic robot cat called Doraemon.  Doraemon has a pocket from which he produces gadgets, medicines, and tools from the future. The pocket is called "fourth-dimensional pocket". Some of the gadgets are based on real Japanese household devices with fanciful twists, but most are completely science fiction. The number of gadgets has been approximated at 4,500. It is this constant variety which makes Doraemon popular both among children and among adults. The most famous ones include the "bamboo copter", a small head accessory that allows flight; the "Anywhere Door," a door that opens up to any place the user wishes; and the "Time Machine." Although he can hear perfectly well, Doraemon has no ears: his robotic ears were eaten by some robotic mice, giving him a series-long phobia of the creatures. The only main female character is Shizuka Minamoto, who serves as a friendly and romantic interest for Nobita. Shizuka is intelligent and is Nobita's best and closest friend, and loves him. Nobita's main enemies are Takeshi (nicknamed "Gian") and Suneo, who is cunning and arrogant. The other characters are Dekisugi, Nobita's parents, Gian's parents, Shizuka's parents, Suneo's parents and Nobita's Teacher. The stories are formulaic, usually focusing on the everyday struggles of the fifth grader Nobita, the protagonist of the story. In a typical chapter, Nobita comes home crying about a problem he faces in school. After hearing him out, Doraemon often advises him, but that's never enough for Nobita, who consistently looks for the "quick, easy" way out. Finally, after Nobita's pleading, Doraemon produces a futuristic gadget out of his pocket to help Nobita fix his problem, enact revenge, or flaunt to his friends, especially Shizuka. Unfortunately, when he has the gadget, Nobita usually gets into deeper trouble than before, despite Doraemon's best intentions and warnings. Sometimes Nobita's friends (usually Suneo or Gian) steal Doraemon's gadgets and end up misusing them. By the end of the story, the characters who do wrong are usually punished. Most of Doraemon episodes are comedies with lessons regarding values such as honesty, perseverance, courage, and respect. Various environmental issues are often visited including homeless animals, global warming etc.

Doraemon is the main protagonist of the series. He is a cat-like robot created by the Matsushiba robot company, and is sent back in time by Sewashi to aid Nobita. He possesses a fourth-dimensional pocket from which he can acquire various kinds of futuristic tools, gadgets, and playthings from a future department store. Doraemon is very friendly and intelligent, not to mention long-suffering because of Nobita's antics. In "The Doraemons", it is revealed that Doraemon's original paint colour was yellow. As he wept, the yellow colour washed off and his voice changed due to the potion he drank. As a result, he developed a morbid fear of mice because he was suffering musophobia. Doraemon's  favourite food is "Dora Cakes".
