The BIG Reveal: Hello Kitty Is NOT Actually A Kitty

Dear Hello Kitty fans,

Sorry to disappoint but your favorite Kitty is NOT actually a cat! Yep, childhood ruined.

hkhkThe BIG reveal happened at the Hello Kitty exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. Anthropologist Christine R. Yano was curating that time at the event in which she described the billion-dollar icon, as-ehem, a cat. But Sanrio corrected her texts telling the Los Angeles Times “I was corrected – very firmly”

That’s one correction Sanrio made for my script for the show. HELLO KITTY IS NOT A CAT. She’s a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She’s never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it’s called Charmmy Kitty.

Sanrio confirmed the news, announcing,

As tall as five apples, and as heavy as three, Hello Kitty is a bright little girl with a heart of gold. She loves to bake cookies and play the piano, and dreams of one day becoming a pianist or maybe even a poet. She has a gift for music and English, and a soft spot for Mama’s apple pie. Hello Kitty and her twin sister Mimmy are the best of friends.

  1. parang abnormal lang.. so you mean, hello kitty is an iconic cartoon character which have an alien forefathers from outer space who happens to have migrated to earth and married to a cat and the result of that is Hello Kitty and Mimmy? because for sure, she doesn’t look like human to me…

  2. Hello Kitty is an anthromorphized cat. She’s not a cat and not fully human neither. As reluctant as I may be, I’ll compare her to Disney characters Goofy and Pluto. Goofy is anthromorphized. Pluto is just a dog.
