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 1980s and early 1990s. 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][7] but few concrete details of the show and no actual footage has resurfaced online yet. The only other known detail of the show was that the signs weren't translated. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approved the "Adventures of Albert and Sidney" as Canadian content on June 6, 1986.[8] This suggests the dub was produced in Canada.

In March 2017, a Lost Media Wiki contributor contacted CBC if they had information about the dub, but unfortunately, the channel had long since removed Albert & Sydney from its archive.
