Manga

Despite the series' high popularity in India, the manga hasn't yet to be released there, because the anime series is more popular than the manga series. Several unofficial Hindi translations have been digitally released since.

Anime

1979 anime

A Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu dub of Doraemon (1979 anime) began airing on Hungama TV on February 13, 2005. It became one of the most popular programs to be shown on the network and continues to be broadcast to this day. Over 500 episodes have been dubbed. On November 19, 2010, Disney Channel India, Hungama TV's sister channel, began showing reruns of the dub. Later on, Disney Channel India brought the new episodes of the anime. Doraemon is available on Amazon Prime Video India in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil. In early 2018 Hungama TV has stopped to air the Hindi/Tamil/Telugu dub of the 1979 series. Early 1979 anime episodes were first dubbed into Hindi during August 2020 as shown in a 'new season' promo but first broadcasted in February 2021, titled "Classic Doraemon".

2005 anime

A Hindi dub of Doraemon (2005 anime) began airing on Disney Channel India in the first quarter of 2013 as New Doraemon. Later on, it also started on Hungama TV in October 2014. In early 2018 Hungama TV has stopped to air the Hindi/Tamil/Telugu dub of the 2005 series but Disney Channel India has continued to air it. An Indian English dub began airing on Disney Channel India on February 4, 2020, but stopped shortly after.

Since 2020, India has started translating the title cards into English instead of leaving it in Japanese. But for some reason, it again stopped translating the title cards into English from September 2021, and they have also started to air the 2005 Remade Anime since then. The title cards were kept as usual, despite the anime card's changes.

It is also available on Disney+ Hotstar, an Indian online streaming service.

In the 1979 anime, the opening uses the Hindi/Tamil/Telugu version of Doraemon no Uta whereas the ending uses the Hindi/Tamil/Telugu version of Boku Doraemon with the animation from Bokutachi Chikyuujin accompanying it.

The 2005 anime used the same opening and ending as the 1979 one at first. As of 2020 they have started using the Hindi/Tamil/Telugu version of Yume wo Kanaete Doraemon as the opening, whereas the ending uses an instrumental version of Doraemon no Uta.

Films

Some of the Doraemon films have been dubbed into Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu and aired on both Hungama TV (until 2018) and Disney Channel India. Some of the titles of the films have been slightly modified, other titles have been completely changed.

However, only the 2 films, Doraemon: Nobita and the New Steel Troops ~Winged Angels~ and Doraemon: Nobita and the Island of Miracles ~Animal Adventure~ were released in theatres, while the almost all of the movies was released on televisions, similar to what happens in Thailand.

In 2019, Hungama TV returns to airs Doraemon movies right after it's premiere on Disney Channel.

Trivia

  • The Title Card in the Hindi/Tamil/Telugu dub were untranslated and kept in Japanese, and they wouldn't be used until Season 5 onwards.
  • In the early years of the show's airing, episodes that had bath scenes and other questionable content were kept uncensored. However, this has changed later on due to the tighter censorship rules.
  • The Doraemon series is currently the highest rated kids' show in India and has won the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Award India for Best Show for Kids in 2013 and 2015. The series was also nominated in Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Award India in 2017.
  • Due to the alleged bad influence of the anime, Disney Channel India was banned from Bangladesh as they kept airing the Hindi dub of the series continuously throughout the day and the government feared that children were being hindered in learning their mother tongue (Bengali). Pakistan also banned the series due to alleged bad influences on kids.
  • It is unknown which Indian dubbing studio dubs the Doraemon anime series in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Indian English.
  • Since a long time, a lot of unofficial (and illegal) dubs of movies have been made. This has also occured in various other countries.
  • For some reasons, there was a rumor about the 2005 anime will be aired in an another channel (In this case, Big Magic). However, it is unknown if the trailer is fake or not.

Error

An error in Hindi dub of the episode- Terror of Lucky Cards was found. The error is voice error, not animation error. Since the Hindi Voice Actor of Doraemon is a girl, once while Doraemon was walking down the stairs along with Nobita, she said चलूंगी ("will walk" for females) instead of चलूंगा ("will walk" for males).
