Former good article nominee Doraemon was a good articles nominee, but did not meet the good article criteria at the time. There are suggestions below for improving the article. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

English dub[edit]

Since the series didn't air on U.S. television yet, maybe they can use the British dub instead, and show it on their own Cartoon Network. There would also be three episodes per 30-minute run, obviously. --Jonghyunchung 14:07, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

Not all anime would end up in the English dub, but I did used to watch this under Chinese dub.--Dark paladin x (talk) 22:31, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

There is already a UK dub of the anime.

Hope this helps

English and Irish broadcasting?[edit]

The article says that Doraemon is shown on RTE Two in Ireland and Sky One and Two in England, when do those shows be on? 12:25, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

3rd strongest manga character?[edit]

According to the Kenshiro article, This link indicates Goku, Doraemon, and Kenshiro as the 3 strongest (Manga) characters. What exactly is it about Doraemon that makes him so powerful? Is it his boundless ability to make things come from the future? I don't remember this manga to be too violent, so I don't see how Doraemon could be a powerful entity. Then again, I haven't really read Doraemon for about 21 years now :) Piepants 17:59, 20 September 2007 (UTC)Piepants

He can shrink Goku with the shrinking torchlight and blow him away with the air cannon, or just bring out the wish phonebooth and wish that he's stronger than Goku. Anyway, wikipedia ain't really a place for this sort of discussion. The Slimy One 15:23, 26 July 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Frozen Slime (talkcontribs)

Doraemon as the "Anime Ambassador"[edit]

I'm not really into this, but I saw a news article about the Japanese Foreign Ministry granting the honorary position of anime ambassador to Doraemon. I think that could be useful in your article in showing his popularity and effect.

English publisher Viz Media (dropped)[edit]

I don't get what "English publisher Viz Media (dropped) " means. What did Viz Media do? Please tell me. D10 Spada (talk) 13:54, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Viz media did not publish the series is basically what it meant.

Long story: They decided not to publish it because it had some "crude" humour in it and probably the couple of times they made light of suicide also put them off. Basically, when a series is "dropped", it means that the person with the rights to it decides, for whatever reason, to not publish it. Junjoh (talk) 01:40, 19 August 2009 (UTC)


Why are katakana and hiragana mixed to spell "Doraemon" ? -- Mikeblas (talk) 05:15, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Because that is the official spelling. The first two characters are written in katakana, while the remaining ones are rendered in hiragana. -- (talk) 20:18, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Request for comment on articles for individual television episodes and characters[edit]

Inconsistent spelling[edit]

I am wondering why there is a different spelling throughout the page for the same character: Gian vs. Jaian ? --Patto (talk) 17:14, 5 February 2009 (JST+9)

Chinese names[edit]

I would like to do what I can to help copy facts from the Chinese article. For now, I'd like to note here that a friend in China told me Doreamon is known by the Chinese names "哆啦A梦" (as the Chinese Wikipedia article is titled) and "小叮当" (a name I knew and my friend helped me write). I think these should be mentioned in this English Wikipedia article, because a search for either of those doesn't bring up the article. It does find a separate article listing "non-Japanese versions", though. --Lance E Sloan (talk) 17:50, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Why do we need Chinese names here when we have a listing of names over at the list of international versions? _dk (talk) 00:01, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Episode notability[edit]

Information.svg Many or all of the existing individual episode pages for this series appear to fail the notability guidelines for television episodes, and have been tagged accordingly. These articles can be improved through the inclusion of real-world information from reliable sources to assert notability. Overly long plot summaries should be edited, to a maximum length of approximately ten words per minute of screen time. Trivia should be integrated into the body of the article, or removed if it is not directly relevant. Quotes and images should only be used as part of a critical analysis of the episode. You might also consider merging any notable information onto the show's "List of episodes" or season pages. Otherwise, when these pages come up for review, they may be redirected or merged. If you want any help or further information, then come to Wikipedia:WikiProject Television/Episode coverage. Thanks.

List of Doraemon Chapters[edit]

Shogakukan English Comics[edit]

I recently went to Japan and they were selling Doraemon in english. I have the first 4 volumes. Could we put somthing about this in the article? Just a suggestion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:12, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm usually the last one to support turning Wikipedia into Wiktionary, but if there's an official position we should make it clear whether the English name sounds like it looks (door-ayy-mon→door-uh-mon) or whether it's four syllables as in Chinese and Japanese (do-rah-ayy-mon→door-uh-ayy-mon; i.e., Doraëmon).

I wouldn't delete the Japanese IPA itself but it probably should go to Wiktionary since anyone able to pronounce it correctly would be speaking Japanese and reading the Japanese Wiki rather than this article anyway. Better to just use a [[wikt: link for the Japanese text. — LlywelynII 03:30, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

"since anyone able to pronounce it correctly would be speaking Japanese and reading the Japanese Wiki rather than this article anyway" I'm not sure you realise how ridiculous that statement sounds. SephyTheThird (talk) 07:58, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

Doremon English versions published in Japan, Taiwan, and/or Mainland China[edit]

I believe Doraemon also has had English versions published in Japan, Taiwan, and Mainland China.

I have removed the multiple misused sources that were being used to support claims not stated in the sources themselves (WP:synthesis). The article is not improved by misusing sources when you have not been able to find better ones.

If a dub made in Hong Kong is being broadcast in the UK, you need a reliable source to state this. There are several sources talking about an English dub other than the Disney one, but none of these actually associates themselves with the UK broadcast. LUK hold EMEA rights to the series but they don't even list the English broadcast on their own website so thats even more reason why we need a proper source to say this. It's not enough to piece together the information by quoting a lot of sources unless the sources themselves actually state the claim clearly and are reliable. Fan blogs are not reliable.SephyTheThird (talk) 13:17, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

LUK has fragments of this dub uploaded on YouTube including a bumper at the end showing the air times on Boomerang and they used to have the air times on (a website owned by LUK). That seems enough prove to me.-- (talk) 05:32, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
Which still can't be used to say the dub is different (because comparing them is WP:OR) and Boomerang is the sort of channel that just repeats stuff endlessly so defining air times for different seasons and even the ending of a series is very difficult. We know when it started which is really all we need.These might be enough "for you" but they are not enough for Wikipedias verifiability and sourcing standards, which are the same for everyone.SephyTheThird (talk) 09:20, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
