"The Mystery of Goodie Land" is an episode of the 2005 Doraemon anime series. The plot of the episode involved Nobita, Doraemon, Shizuka, Gian, and Suneo being transported to a second world while trying to catch a floating cake. They learn that the world around them is made entirely out of candy, and is supposed to be a candy-based theme park, which had mysteriously disappeared right before it was supposed to open. After voyaging toward a control tower, the gang discovers that the park was stolen, along with all the sweets in the world, by a jealous child who couldn't eat any of it due to his cavities.

For the series' US adaptation, Doraemon: Gadget Cat from the Future, the episode was dubbed into English under the name of "Adventures in Candy Land". It was promoted as a special 30-minute episode (as most episodes are condensed to two 15-minute segments for the US market), and was set to air on August 28th, 2015. However, despite appearing in early TV guides, the episode did not air, possibly due to concerns from Disney-ABC Television Group about it encouraging children to overindulge in sweets, or because Hasbro threatened legal action over the use of the name "Candy Land". It was replaced with another episode ("Noby! Noby! He's Our Man / Gone with the Sneeze"), and the dubbed version of "Adventures in Candy Land" has currently not been released in any form.[1][2]
