Gian wants to take the manga in Yasuog and Haruo's hands, and Nobita uses it to read manga. (The Fujio E. Fujio in the manga here imitates Fujiko F. Fujio.)

Gadgets Used[]

  • Anything Viking


  • This episode's name originated from the fact that in Japan, the word Viking is used to refer to unlimited buffet. The term was invented in 1957 by Tetzuzo Inumaru, the president of Japan's Imperial Hotel at time, after experiencing smorgasbord in Denmark and wishing to utilize the same kind of service at his hotel. Since then, the term Viking became popular and spred throughout Japan with many shops and restaurants offering this kind of service.
  • Given the fact that it grants the user his/her exact wish unlike the similar wishing gadget, it can be presumbled that the gadget was programmed to prevent the user from "wishing for more wishes" like what Gian and Suneo try in this episode.
  • The manga that Nobita gets from Gian is called Toraemon. It's a parody of Doraemon with a tiger (tora in Japanese) as the title character. There doesn't appear to be a connection to the anime character also called Toraemon.
  • In scene when Doraemon play stuffed toy machine, there have 2 doll resemble U-ko from Obake no Q-tarō and Monga from 21-Emon.
