Doraemon was a very successful Japanese anime that has aired in three different series since 1973. While the series was adapted in many countries, an English dub of the 1979 anime called Albert and Sydney aired in Barbados in the late 1980's and early 1990's. The show aired on Saturday mornings on CBC TV 8 in Barbados.[1]

The first person to report this dub was a Barbadian user on a forum called The TFP in 2004[2], who recalled part of the theme song. Other users online have recalled the dub[3][4][5][6], but few concrete details of the show and no actual footage has resurfaced online yet. The only other known detail of the show are that the signs weren't translated.[7] Sadly, little else is known about the series.
