Doraemon: 20 Years into the Future is an obscure feature-length episode of Doraemon that aired on TV Asahi. It is unknown which year this episode was made and/or release.

Dubbing History

This special episode was dubbed into English two times. The first dub was made for a rare limited VHS release, and was recorded in the US. The second dub is made as a test dub by Media Concepts, which is the same company that (possibly) did the early 2000's Doraemon dub with Phuuz Entertainment. The movie was dubbed without Phuuz's help, unlike the dub of the 1979 series. Both of the dubs are mostly unedited and have dialogue close to the original Japanese version, but the latter dub has the name changes from the Phuuz dub. Both dubs are rare and hard to find, and are made in Los Angeles.

Dub Changes

The two dubs of this TV special are mostly unedited and has dialogue closer to the original Japanese script. The VHS dub keeps the Japanese names, while the Media Concepts dub has the name changes from the Phuuz dub.

The voice actors for the Phuuz dub of Doraemon reprised their roles in the 2003 dub, with the exception of Nobita's voice actor, who had to be replaced due to being unavailable.

Michelle Ruff, the voice of Shizuka/Serena in the 2003 dub of the special, voiced both Nobita/Nobu and his son in the 1998 dub.
