Doraemon was the creation of comic artist F. Fujio Fujiko (whose real name was Hiroshi Fujimoto). Doraemon was first published as a comic in 1970 and continued to be drawn right up till the artist’s death in 1996.
Although there was a short-lived Domaemon TV anime aired in 1973, the current Doraemon TV anime was first aired in 1979 by Asahi TV. 2009 marks the 30th anniversary of the show, which airs weekly and is said to be one of the longest running shows in Japan.
The first Doraemon movie, “Doraemon: Nobita no Kyoryu” (Doraemon: Nobita’s Dinosaur) was released to Japanese theaters in 1980. A number of Doraemon movies have been made since then, the most recent being the 2009 “Doraemon: Nobita no Uchu Kaitakushi” (Doraemon: Nobita’s Space Development History). The next movie, “Doreamon: Nobita no Ningyo Daikaisen” (Doraemon: Nobita’s Great Mermaid War) is scheduled for release in Japan in March of 2010.
