Embark on an exciting time-travelling adventure with Doraemon, the lovable robot cat, and the National Museum of Singapore (NMS)! Explore stories of Singapore with us through fascinating artefacts in the museum's galleries and our National Collection.


One day, Sewashi-san made a clay statue of Doraemon, and asked his mouse robot to bite off a part of the statue’s clay ear so that it looks like a 3D model of Doraemon's photo. However, the mouse robot misinterpreted Sewashi-san's orders and ended up eating Doraemon's real ears instead! Doraemon has lived in fear of mice since the incident.

Upon witnessing this, Sewashi-san immediately sent Doraemon to the robot hospital. Unfortunately, his condition worsened when the robot doctor accidentally removed both of Doraemon's ears.

The story continues when Doraemon’s lover, Noramyako, a robot cat, sees his missing ears. Noramyako was very amused by Doraemon’s missing ears, which saddened him. He tried to cheer himself up by drinking the happiness drug, but he mistakenly drinks the sadness drug instead. Doraemon cried and felt sad for three days and three nights long. His endless crying also resulted in the fading of the colour of his body, which turned blue, and caused his voice to turn coarse.
