Doraemon '79 (Phuuz English pilot)

Status Partially Found

Sometime during the early 2000s, Unbound Creative Inc. (then known as Phuuz Entertainment) licensed the 1979 Doraemon series through TV Asahi, in hopes of distributing it in the US. A pitch pilot was produced, but was never picked up by any network, most likely due to lack of interest.

Very little information is available about the pilot, although reference to it is made in the Phuuz producer Ken Duer's profile.[1] Its existence can also be seen in a WebArchive copy of a page relating to the different productions that were dubbed.[2]

MTV UK

On October 22, 2017, a user named "Carpediemsnuts" posted onto the anime subreddit of Reddit a photo of a VHS tape with the Creative logo on it as well as a (misspelled) label identifying it as "DORAEMON THE FINISHED ITEM". The caption for the photo read "So my Dad once mentioned he'd voiced an anime in the 90's...I just found this."[3] According to the user, his father, who had done previous work for MTV UK, was commissioned to voice Doraemon in the pilot. On October 24, 2017, the same user posted a 2 1/2 minute clip of the pilot onto their Twitter account.[4]

The Phuuz one was commissioned by TV Asahi, and Phuuz is a company based in California while the found dub is clearly recorded in the UK and was commissioned by MTV UK. Also, the found one was made in the 1990s while the Phuuz one was made in the 2000s.

So Phuuz pitched a dub of Doraemon too... I wonder why it didn't get picked up in Europe or Australia at least, like Phuuz's dub of Shin-Chan...

I'm now pretty sure it's a different dub. The Phuuz one was commissioned by TV Asahi, and Phuuz is a company based in California while the found dub is clearly recorded in the UK and was commissioned by MTV UK.

Also, the found one was made in the 1990s while the Phuuz one was made in the 200s.

Well, not yet. Maybe change it to partially found until he uploads the full thing.

It's not the Phuuz dub, Phuuz is an American country and their dub pilot was made in the 2000s not 1990s.

What exactly is the Phuuz dub? I'm not a big Doraemon fan, just wanted to see what this was.

It's an American dub of the 1979 anime series made in the early 2000s.

The MTV UK dub is unrelated to Phuzz's dub as it was made in the 1990s and it's a British dub.

  • Phuuz sorry, I was on my phone when I typed my first comment and it forced me to autocorrect the company's name as "Phuzz".

The MTV UK dub should probably have its own page, shouldn't it?

Was its existence known before the dude on Reddit posted about it? If yes, sure. If not, then I'm afraid it's not eligible for an article.

It always cool to find a previously lost thing that nobody even knew existed beforehand randomly while searching for other media.

It's a reconstruction. It's from a Latino dub of Doraemon. (but otherwise, it's the same episode)

YouTube has copyright bots that automatically match video and audio to registered things. That's why you got automatically dinged.

For those who don't want to click, he took the audio from the Tweet about the UK dub and placed it under direct feed video of the episode.

This comment by Carpediemsnuts states it was done 17 years ago, meaning it was made in 2000.

I watched the clip of the MTV UK pilot of Doraemon a few times, and I loved it. The voices were pretty good, but I'm much more interested in Nobita Nobi's voice. I wonder who voiced Nobita in the MTV UK English pilot of Doraemon.
