Once in a While, Nobita Can Think, Too

Save the Neanderthals is an episode of the Doraemon 2005 anime.


Suneo just come back from the museum and enthusiastically introduces the "Neanderthal" in the empty lot. Nobita and Shizuka become interested and want to meet the Neanderthal. So the two and Doraemon go back to Europe 40,000 years ago through "Time Machine". Nobita feels very cold when he gets there, and everyone finally turns on the "Adaptation Light" to adapt to the climate of that era. They are searching in the vast forest. Then, everyone runs into a strong man head-on. He seems to be very scared of them. He turns his head in panic and hits a tree and faints. After Doraemon's identification, T1 confirmed that it is a "Neanderthal". Nobita names him "Gian Original Man" because he is exactly the same as Gian. Later, Gian Original Man is scared by an elk. At this time, several more people come, one of whom is named "Suneo Original Man" by Nobita. They drive away the elk. Gian Original Man wants to be friends with them, but is ridiculed. Nobita and others feel that this is too much, and Doraemon confirms that these people are the ancestors of modern Homo sapiens. At this time, a girl who looks like Nobita comes over there. Shizuka jokingly calls her "Nobita Girl" to help Gian Original Man and proposes that Gian Original Man joins, but is rejected. Suneo Original Man says that we should see how powerful he is before he can join. Nobita Girl is very disappointed, but there is nothing she could do. In order to helps Gian Original Man, everyone comes up with a plan to let Nobita use "Dress-Up Camera" to play Nobita Girl and talk to Gian Original Man. But Nobita Girl (fake) angers the rhino, and the rhino chases Nobita Girl (fake). Gian Original Man went to rescue her and is seen by Suneo Original Man and others. The plan is good, but many mistakes are made during the execution. Because Gian Original Man is too stupid, he puts the "Super Gloves" on his feet, making the gloves useless. Then Gian Original Man picks up Nobita and jumps behind a big rock, but Nobita is exposed. When Gian Original Man is scared, he hears a girl's cry outside. It turns out that the real Nobita Girl is chased by the rhino. Doraemon wants to save people, but he is in a mess. At the critical moment, Gian bursts out with strength, lifts a big stone, smashes the rhino, and rescues Nobita. At the same time, Suneo and others arrive and drive away the rhino. Suneo agrees to let Gian officially become one of them. In this way, Gian gains friendship and loves at the same time. When he goes back, he says that there are still 2% of people in the world who have Neanderthal blood.
