Doraemon (ドラえもん) is an anime family comedy TV series created by Fujiko F. Fujio and the third based on the manga series of the same name. Produced by Shin-Ei Animation, it began airing on TV Asahi on April 15, 2005.
An edited English dub produced by Bang Zoom! Entertainment aired on Disney XD in the United States from July 7, 2014 to May 12, 2017 and was given a TV-Y7 rating. A second season of the English dub premiered on Disney XD on June 15, 2015 and ended on September 1, 2015. An alternate version dubbed by Red Angel Media in Hong Kong and produced by LUK Internacional in Spain would air in the United Kingdom.
Additionally, there's also a 3rd English dub made in India for Disney Channel, however, not much is known about it.
Doraemon is a cat-like robot from the future who appears in the present to steer Nobita Nobi, an unintelligent, naive and clumsy boy, on the right path in order to secure his future. Doraemon assists Nobita, using one of his gadgets in various ways, often causing more trouble than he was trying to solve.
The English dub has been heavily modified to meet American broadcasting guidelines, censoring content deemed inappropriate for American children, as well as replacing many Japanese cultural elements with American cultural elements. Some modifications include Americanized character and gadget name changes from the English version of the manga, an episode order completely different from the Japanese episode order, nudity being heavily censored by adding steam, cloud effects, or clothing, and some episodes having several minutes of footage cut.
Starting February 1, 2016, the American version was re-imported to Japan and aired on Disney Channel Japan, providing an alternative re-recorded Japanese dub of the version as a secondary audio feed
