The Bow-Bow Grasshopper Riot (ペコペコバッタ大騒動 Peko Peko Batta Ōsōdō) is the second episode of the Doraemon 1973 anime.


While everyone was playing with the ball, Nobita walked by and got smacked by it on the face. He asks Suneo to apologize but he says that "it's Nobita's fault to walk where the ball is flying".

Frustrated, Nobita begs Doraemon to make Suneo apologize to him. The tool that comes out is the Bow-Bow Grasshopper: if you put it into his nose, he won't help but want to apologize.

Nobita uses this tool to make Suneo apologize, but he accidentally throws the bag full of grasshoppers into the air, and a swarm of grasshoppers spreads throughout the city. The people in the city all apologize at once.

They manage to collect them with some difficulty, but after things go back to normal, they begin to blame each other for the mistakes. It doesn't go well.
