Viz Media announced that since they never used their English-dubbing license for the 2005 Doraemon anime series, they will air it in 2009 in North America. It will air on Cartoon Network's Toonami block in the United States and will replace Naruto in both of it's 9:00 and 9:30 timeslots. Teletoon will air the English dub of the series in Canada. Also, Doraemon will be pronounced as "Dora-mon" using a silent E, yet sometimes pronounced officially as "Dor-I-eh-mon". Also, like Naruto (another Viz property) Doraemon will also be released in uncut DVD boxsets for the Region 1 market.
