Doraemon's Long Tales VOL.6 Noby's Little Space War

Noby meets Papi, the tiny palm-sized president of Planet Pirika. Papi has escaped to Earth to avoid being captured by General Gilmore, who has taken over Pirika. When Big G and Sneech are attacked by the PCIA under General Gilmore's command, Noby and the gang decide to stand up and fight for Papi. But just when they are about to pounce upon the PCIA's battleship, the enemy takes Shizuka hostage and takes possession of the "Size-Changing Flashlight." Without saying anything to the gang, Papi quietly surrenders, offering himself to be taken in exchange for Shizuka's safety. In order to defeat General Gilmore and save the president, Noby and his friends head for Pirika with Papi's talkative pet dog Rokoroko. But can they manage in their tiny bodies? The moving sixth tale of the Doraemon's Long Tales series!


Papi, the tiny president of a faraway planet, escapes to Earth to avoid being captured by the military forces that took his planet over.

Meanwhile, Nobita is making a space movie with Gian and Suneo. After Nobita accidentally destroys the set, both Suneo and Gian "fire" him. Nobita goes to Doraemon to help him create a space movie. Failed at asking Dekisugi for help (who has already been asked to join by Gian and Suneo), they instead rope in Shizuka for help, who prefers to make a movie about dolls, disappointing Nobita. Shizuka uses her favorite rabbit doll for the filming (turned into a robot by Doraemon's gadget), but it disappears after she and the others are distracted. After Nobita's mother rediscovers the doll, Doraemon, Nobita, and Shizuka find Papi inside it, who explains that he is the president of Pirika planet, which is currently being suppressed by a dictator named General Gilmore. Becoming a top target for Gilmore, Papi has been transported to Earth for safety by his security officer. He is offered shelter in Shizuka's doll house. Later, Gilmore's top officer, Dorakorule, lands on Earth following Papi, and leads an attack on Gian and Suneo's set (thinking the model weapons and tanks to be real). Learning that Dorakorule is spying to find the ones who have hidden Papi, Nobita and his friends hide themselves from the spies (taking form of fireflies) and create a hideout in Shizuka's house, which doubles as a factory for weapon-making. However, the hideout is subsequently raided, Shizuka is kidnapped, and the "Size-Changing Flashlight" (used to shrink Nobita and his friends) is taken, leaving the others stuck at their form. Papi offers himself to be taken in exchange for Shizuka's safety, which Dorakorule accepts. Papi's pet dog, Rokoroko arrives but is too late to save Papi. After explaining about himself, he, Nobita, and his friends go to Pirika to save Papi.

They arrive at Pirika's ring system and find the Freedom Party's hideout, where Papi and Rokoroko originated. They receive information about Papi's planned execution the next day and proceed to stage his rescue; Doraemon, Nobita, Gian, and Rokoroko travel to Pirika using a spaceship, while Shizuka and Suneo guard the ring system. Shizuka and Suneo manage to fend off the military army and proceed to help the others. They arrive at the planet, but are raided and are almost drowned in the sea until they mysteriously return to their normal size. Meanwhile, Doraemon, Nobita, Gian, and Rokoroko arrive with the secret Freedom Party's hideout in the planet, but are captured by General Gilmore's soldiers. They are sentenced to execution, but moments before being killed, they miraculously grow back to their normal size and meet up with Shizuka and Suneo, realizing that they had passed the flashlight's power limit. They proceed to battle the military army (which is no match to them due to their sheer size), and when Gilmore tries to escape, he is captured by Pirika's citizens. Saying goodbye to Papi, Nobita and his friends go back to Earth.


Pirika star
A star inhabited by a small human being, which is only the size of an earthling's finger. Around the planet, there is a small satellite band shaped like Saturn's ring . Although small, it is full of abundant resources. Science and technology are more advanced than the Earth, and interstellar navigation is well established. In a society where ability is more important than age, advanced learning systems are well developed, so it is possible to graduate from university at the age of 8 or become president at around 10 like Papi. The capital is Piripolis and the population is about 10 million. In addition, an old sewer (which was said to be about 1000 years ago in the movie version) runs underground, and is used as a communication passage by the Free Alliance, which was organized to resist Gilmour's dictatorship. .. According to RocoRoco, there are many "cats" in this sewer, but Pirika's "cats" are the mice on earth

The poster for the 2021 rerelease of the film

  • The title is an allusion to the Star Wars series. It also has allusions of other movies such as E.T., King Kong and Superman.
    • The old Vietnamese title for the original manga version was Đô rê mon: Tên độc tài vũ trụ (Doraemon: The Cosmic Dictator), alludes/refer to the main villain of the movie and dictator of Pirika Star, Gilmore.
  • In this movie, it is revealed that the effect of Small Light has a limited amount of time. But in the manga series, this never happened. For example, it is unknown if Nobita and Shizuka were turned back into normal sizes after the events of volume 33 chapter The Mirror World.
    • Prior to this movie the 2nd anime movie, Doraemon: The Records of Nobita, Spaceblazer had Doraemon using the Small Light to shrink Goss and Metz in order for Nobita to make his plastic bullets from his gun dense enough to destroy their ship. The next scene Goss and Metz were in depicts them in their original size prior to shrinking from the small light. This does not happen in the Manga version.
  • The scene where Gian "roars" inside a frame is a reference to the classic intro of the American media distributor Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, where Gian represents the lion.
  • Shizuka's room has plushies that resemble Gizmo from Gremlins and the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters
  • In Hong Kong, the film have two separate dubs. One is made for TVB Jade airing in 1989 under the name of "(Ding Dong) Animated movie - Little Space Wars" (Chinese: (叮噹)卡通電影 ── 宇宙小戰爭), while another one is made for VHS and Laserdisc release by Resouporter Ltd in Hong Kong. While the translation were different between dubs, generally the name change, but the late Lam Pou-chuen has voiced Doraemon, and as well as sharing the same name translation for Pirika Star (比利嘉星) in the both dubs. It was generally mistaken that this movie have only one Cantonese dub for both TVB and VHS/Laserdisc.[2]
  • In honor of the upcoming 2021-2022 remake, it was recently announced that the film will be rereleased on November 23-December 2, 2021 on Japanese theaters for a limited run.[3]
