Siapa yang tidak mengenal Hello Kitty?

Christine R. Yano, seorang antropologis dari University of Hawaii mengatakan bahwa ia mendeskripsikan Hello Kitty sebagai seekor kucing dalam pameran di Japan American National Museum. Yano pun dikoreksi oleh Sanrio setelah mereka membaca teksnya untuk pameran.

“Hello Kitty bukanlah seekor kucing. Dia adalah karakter kartun. Dia adalah gadis kecil. Dia adalah seorang teman. Namun ia bukan seekor kucing. Ia tidak pernah berpijak dengan keempat kaki. Ia berjalan dan duduk seperti makhluk berkaki dua. Ia memiliki binatang peliharaannya sendiri, bagaimanapun juga, dan ia dipanggil Charmmy Kitty.”

Kejutan lainnya dari Hello Kitty?

Hello Kitty memiliki cerita yang cukup panjang yang mungkin bisa jadi menarik untuk diketahui.Kitty White, atau yang lebih familiar sebagai karakter bernama Hello Kitty, sebenarnya berkewarganegaraan Inggris dan berzodiak Scorpio. Ia memiliki saudari kembar bernama Mimmy White. Mereka tinggal di London bersama dengan ibunya, Mary White, dan ayahnya, George White. Kitty memiliki kucing peliharaan bernama Charmmy Kitty dan hamster bernama Sugar. Charmmy Kitty merupakan hadiah dari ayahnya dan Sugar diberikan oleh teman masa kecilnya, Dear Daniel.

Jika dipikirkan lebih lagi, Hello Kitty berjalan dengan dua kaki seperti gadis kecil, dan dia tidak berbunyi “meong” seperti kucing-kucing lainnya. Jadi, apakah Hello Kitty benar-benar BUKAN seekor kucing? Hmmm…

Who doesn’t know Hello Kitty?

The adorable cultural force that started its popularity as a character on a purse in Japan, 1974. Hello Kitty, officially designed by Yuko Yamaguchi, was produced by Sanrio.

However, is Hello Kitty a cat? NO.

Prepare your mind to be blown. Christine R. Yano, an anthropologist from the University of Hawaii,says she described Hello Kitty as a cat in an exhibit at Japanese American National Museum. Thus, Yano was corrected by Sanrio after the company proofread her texts for the exhibit.”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.”
