So, Christine R. Yano, an anthropologist at the University of Hawaii, is currently curating a Hello Kitty exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.
Yano was corrected by Sanrio after the company proofread her texts for the exhibit, in which she described the famous character, naturally, as a cat.
“I was corrected — very firmly,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “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.”
So ALLEGEDLY, Hello Kitty is actually a human British girl named Kitty White with her own backstory.
Kitty White is a twin and a perpetual third-grader. According to the Times: “She is a Scorpio. She loves apple pie. And she is the daughter of George and Mary White.”
But what about the cat, turtle, bird, and all the other animals?
How many times do you think Sparpay and Ryan Evans had to kiss in shows if they were the leaxs since kindergarten?
STEVE PURCELL IS DIRECTING “THE TOY THAT TIME FORGOT”!!!
THIS DEMANDS MORE HYPE.
There is going to be a Toy Story movie
directed by the creator of Sam & Max
starring Kristen Schaal.
Steve Purcell has been working in minor capacities with Pixar in various capacities for the past few years,
but this is the first project that can really be called “his”.
People at my school found out about my fanfiction I started/finished in 7th grade, and won’t stop teasing me about it, so I have to take it down.
No one’s read it yet, but I have to take it down before they do cause a lot of it gets dark around the time I went into a depression.
