The Time Cloth is an episode from the Doraemon 1979 anime.

Plot

Doraemon and Nobita are happy when the old television broke. They ask Tamako if they could replace the TV with a new one, but she fixes it anyway. Tamako and Nobisuke could not agree as to whether to buy a new washing machine or a new camera to replace the old counterparts that are wearing off. The TV breaks down again. Doraemon takes out the Time Cloth and makes the three appliances as good as new, to Tamako and Nobisuke's delight. Doraemon and Nobita walk around town, asking Shizuka and Suneo to give their unwanted objects with the intention of reselling them by making them as good as new. However, Doraemon lets slip to Suneo that they are using the Time Cloth to do so, prompting him to steal the cloth when no one is watching.

Suneo tells Gian the cloth's use and he lines up four other boys to bring their unwanted objects to the open lot so as to make them new. However, Gian's mother finds Gian, and sends him to deliver a box of twenty eggs to a residence. Wrapping the box with the cloth blue-side out, the eggs hatch all of a sudden and Gian has to chase all the chicks back, leaving the cloth flying in the air when it is blown by a gush of wind. Meanwhile, Doraemon and Nobita find the Time Cloth missing. Suneo finds the flying cloth as well while trying to search for Gian, and they give chase. Landing into several encounters along the way, the cloth ends up in the hands of Suneo using his remote-control helicopter. Suneo's mother finds out and orders him to return the cloth to Doraemon and Nobita. But first, she takes the cloth to make her old crocodile-leather handbag, peacock earmuffs and fox-skin sweater brand new, only for them to turn into the animals themselves when used, terrifying everyone.

In an end-of-the-episode quickie, Doraemon turns Nobita into a crying baby.

Quotes

[Doraemon asks Suneo if he has any old items to give]
Suneo: Of course, because our family loves to use new things.
Doraemon: If you have things you don't want, just give them to me.
[Suneo gives a box of old items to Doraemon]
Suneo: Here.
Doraemon: Thank you!
Suneo: What would you want to use these old items for?
Doraemon: It's a secret. You are too crafty, I won't tell you. [as he is going out of Suneo's residence] If I tell you that we are going to use the Time Cloth to change the old items into new ones, you are definitely going to steal it. So I won't tell you.
Suneo: [stops walking and giggles] You have just blurted it out to me!

[One of the chicks continues to stand on Gian's head, who is looking for the Time Cloth. The cloth lands on the ground near Gian, to his delight]
Gian: [runs to the cloth elated and lets the chick go] Found it! Found it! [takes the cloth and wraps it around himself] I won't let it fly away ever again! [Before he knows it, the cloth turns him into a baby]
