Anime Japan University


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.

    Um, this is in response to Lennon, I'm from Barbados as well and I have been looking for the english version of this cartoon yes it was called “Albert and Sidney”.

    The thing is I think CBC got the cartoon from the UK (England most likely). From my research there is no such thing as the english dubbed version. I thought I was crazy too but I'm still looking, it was one of my favorite shows when I was young.

    I read somewhere that cartoon network will be putting on very soon in the future.
