An anime series created by Ippei Kuri (born Toyoharu Yoshida) and produced by Tatsunoko Production. It was the studio's second series to air in Nippon Television fifteen years after Animetari: Ketsudan, where the channel currently owns the studio rights. Doteraman premiered in Fall 1986 and ran for 20 episodes.

Class clown Hajime, and his friend Mariko, stumble across a strange alien detective who gives them the Doteraman suits. Wearing these, the two transform themselves into the super-powered Doteraman and Dotaerapink. They continue to fight for justice by doing things like freeing innocent monsters.
