Doraemon was a 1979 anime created by Fujiko F. Fujio. The series was produced by Shin-Ei Animation, and was much more successful than its 1973 predecessor. It ran on TV Asahi from April 2, 1979 to March 25, 2005 for a total of 1,787 episodes.

For the first 2 years of the series' run, the episodes (of approximately 6 minutes long) aired every Monday through Saturday from 6:50 to 7:00 PM. Starting October 2, 1981 the series switched to a weekly half-hour format, where it remained until the end of its run.[1] Because of the switch to the half-hour format, the episode length increased to 10 minutes, or sometimes 23 minutes. When the episodes were not 23 minutes, the network paired 2 shorter episodes (a new episode and a rerun) to fill up the half-hour time-slot.
