"Doraemon" Ready to Make UK Premiere

Series airs on UK's cable and satellite channel Boomerang on 17 August, with episodes daily at 7:30am

A year after classic robot cat from the future anime Doraemon hit the US, the version that Americans got on Disney XD will begin airing on the UK's cable and satellite channel Boomerang on 17 August, with episodes daily at 7:30am. 

 

Since the Doraemon's manga launch in 1969, the anime has been broadcasted in 35 countries/regions, mainly in Southeast Asia. It aired nationwide in the US for the first time last year with some changes to names of characters and items, for example Nobita to "Noby," Gian (Takeshi Goda) to "Big G," Takecopter to "Flapper", and Dokodemo Door to "Anywhere Door."


Power Ranger turned Trigun voice actor Johnny Yong Bosch voices underachiever Noby (Nobi Nobita), while Mona Marshall (Kyle's mom on South Park) is the titular slightly defective robot cat from the future, sent back in time to help him.

 

Cassandra Morris (K-on's Ritsu) is pretty neighbor girl Sue (Shizuka-chan), Kaiji Tang is bully Big G (Gian) and Brian Beacock is rich kid Sneech (Suneo).
