Ultra B (ウルトラB, Urutora Bi) is a manga series by Fujiko Fujio A (A's real name is Motoo Abiko) that first made its debut in Chuokoron-Shinsha's Fujiko Fujio Land series of tankōbon books in 1984 and was released in individual tankōbon until 1989. In 1987, the manga was adapted into an 120-episode anime of the same name by Shin-Ei Animation which aired on TV Asahi from 4 April 1987 to 27 March 1989.[1] Starting from the mid 2010s, Disney India picked up the show and ordered dubs in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu for its broadcast on Hungama TV and later Disney XD, which is also known for creating Indian-language dubs of the Fujiko Fujio duo's anime, which were based on their manga series, like Doraemon and Chimpui.


One day, A mysterious alien baby from outer space comes to planet Earth, and only-child Michio Mikita finds him. He takes him as his own child, much to the surprise of his family. As he discovers he can talk (although not perfectly), walk, and do magic, and he causes havoc for Michio with his powers. Like Nobita Nobi from Doraemon (Another manga series from Abiko's friend Fujiko F Fujio), Michio does bad at work and is clumsy, so things go worse when it comes to UB's mischief, even though he's only a baby. The manga and anime tells the story of the duo and their adventures.
