How Well Do You Know Doraemon, The Cat from the Future?

Since the cartoons have become popular all over the world, as time passed by, the cartoons that we loved before were mostly left only on our memories and others have been forgotten. And children of this generation have witnessed the most updated and well developed cartoons on televisions this days.Three dimensional cartoons are being famous, and some are even mixed up with real locations. But as 90s kids would understand, cartoons was not really that exciting before but we have always valued those cartoons we’ve grown up with.




And speaking of a cartoon series that we grew up watching, I know every 90s kids will definitely know who this character is because he was once the most famous and will always be famous all over the world. True that due to the large number of cartoons being released and aired on every television worldwide, we can’t deny the fact that there will always be those cartoons who has been overshadowed and never been aired again.




Who is Doraemon?What is Doraemon? You might have asked this question while you were running through the entire post and you haven’t seen any episodes or even a familiar face of this hit cartoon series from the 90s.

Nobita Nobi is so hapless that his 22nd century descendants are still impoverished as a result of his 20th century bumbling. In a bid to raise their social status, their servant, a robotic cat named Doraemon, decides to travel back in time and guide Nobita on the proper path to fortune. Unfortunately Doraemon, a dysfunctional robot that the family acquired by accident (but chose to keep nonetheless), isn’t much better off than Nobita. The robot leads Nobita on many adventures, and while Nobita’s life certainly is more exciting with the robot cat from the future, it is questionable if it is in fact better in the way that Doraemon planned.




The name “Doraemon” can be translated roughly to “stray.” Unusually, the name “Doraemon” (ドラえもん) is written in a mixture of two Japanese scripts: Katakana (ドラ) and Hiragana(えもん). “Dora” derives from “dora neko” (brazen or stray cat, どら猫), and is a corruption of nora (stray). “Emon” 衛門、右衛門 is a component of male given names like Goemon, though no longer as popular as in the past. “Dora” is not derived from dora 銅鑼, meaning gong, but due to the homo-phony, the series puns on this, with Doraemon loving dorayaki.

Ever since the show has been cancelled, it was poorly reserved for future references and most of the footage was lost on an accidental fire. But fans can still have a glimpse of Doraemon on Doraemon Fans Convention in Japan. But new versions with new voice actors have been released later on 2005.
