Doraemon is a Japanese anime/manga series created by the late Hiroshi Fujimoto. It is set in Tokyo in the 70s and 80s and centers on the never-growing ten-year-old Nobita Nobi whose life is forever changed by the arrival of a robot cat from the 22nd century. Doraemon is the name of the robot cat, with Dora- derived from Dorayaki, a particular desert that Doraemon is fond of, and -mon comes from the Japanese term for monster.
Doraemon enjoys unrivaled popularity in much of East Asia, but is rarely known on this side of the Pacific. It is a kids show, created for kids and fares well in that purpose, but it also has a nostagic quality that appeals to kids who have grown to adults. Containing only comical violence, no foul language, and minimal nudity which is never the focus of the story, it is a harmless and endearing show that portryas the life of a child as it should be.
Doraemon is one of my fondest memories of my childhood.
