Had a fun time in our last Japanese lesson of the term today learning a little song from a popular Japanese cartoon – Doraemon.


The cartoon was originally created in 1969 and follows a cat-like robot from the 22nd century of the future (how do they think these things up…!) who is sent back to the 20th century to help Nobita, a rather hapless schoolboy. It became one of Japan’s most popular and well-loved manga/anime series which has a cult following (just do a search on Google and you’ll see what I mean!).


You could almost see Doraemon as the equivalent of Mickey Mouse in the U.S. (but a lot less annoying). If you’re so inclined you can:

  • Read the lyrics (with translation) here.
  • Read an article explaining Doraemon’s history here.
  • Visit the official website here.

  1. To be honest I'm not a big fan of Disney – I don't mind the classic stuff but anything beyong about 1990 isn't all that good. For some reason the whole Mickey Mouse business just annoys me, not sure why, it just does! Doraemon is cool though!

    Wow! I love Doraemon! David, you've found a masterpiece. The balloons are great, but I'd worry about having some kind of helicopter blade in my head. There's only one point I disagree with you on – how could you find Mickey Mouse annoying? Apart from Fingermouse, the Rats of Nimh, and Jerry, he's the most intelligent rodent of them all! (though Jerry is evil, he really shouldn't pick on Tom like that).

    Not to sound crazy..but i'm from Barbados in the Caribbean, and I remember watching this cartoon, but it was called Albert and Sidney, and the theme song went like…

    “put a propeller on top of your hat, Albert and Sidney a boy and his cat, Albert has magic, Sidney has fun…etc. etc.”

    I never knew what Doraemon was until I went searching for Albert and Sidney online and stumbled across the cute little blue cat…but now his name was Doraemon, can anyone help me?
