Smith, every Doraeman fans know why he is blue, they also know why he doesn't get cat's ear and tail as well.

The kindness and cute appearance of Doraemon with its positive impressions and creative plots attracts fans from different ages and people especially in Asia . Children especially like the interesting plots and adults can call up their good memories by watching it. As a result it has become a suitable cartoon for families to watch together. Perhaps in the future human beings can invent a robot which is like Doraemon and also make a number of machines like Doraemon. Hence Doraemon can make us analyze our ability of making robots and developing artificial intelligence leading us to break through our modern technology some day.

Best manga for children. Not only entertaining, kids can also learn life's lessons from it. And those futuristic gadgets, heh, don't know until when can human's technologies catch up to them :D I personally love the magical door that can go anywhere, even to Shizuka's bathroom :))
