Fujio-Fujiko is the pseudonym of two inseparable manga artists, Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko. Together, they have made a number of popular comics for kids. Their collaboration started with 'Obake no Q Taro' in 1964, about a little ghost. Their big success came with the creation of the cat-robot 'Doraemon' in 1970. It became immensely popular all through the East and was soon made into animation and numerous merchandising products.
In 1987 Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko split up as a creative team, each pursuing his own comics projects. Motoo Abiko died a year later; Hiroshi Fujimoto continued to work under the signature Fujiko K. Fujio and died in 1996.
