I don’t see the frustration with Hello Kitty not being a cat.
Curator and Hello Kitty expert Christine Yano said the company informed her that “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.”
Hello Kitty is, in fact, according to Yano, a “perpetual third-grader.” She has a twin. “She lives outside of London. I could go on.”
It is hard to read Yano’s comment outside of context, but her remarks—that cats walk on all fours, while Hello Kitty walks on two legs—sounds like the debates for Disney: if Goofy walks on two legs, and Pluto walks on all fours, how are they both dogs?
'Cause you can have animals on two legs and animals on four legs without this turning into a George Orwell novel. You can have cats on two legs and cats on four legs. I assume Yano means that you should think of Hello Kitty as an anthropomorphized feline, similar to many humans who walk, have pets, live in cities, go to school, and so on.
And, you know, it is a cartoon, so just hum the Mystery Science Theatre theme to yourself.
Now, everyone take a deep breath, exhale, and just enjoy cute Hello Kitty stuff.
(And someone help me buy the new Hello Kitty 40th anniversary Pez dispensers.)
Hello Kitty is from England, Soul Eater takes place in Nevada, and then there is the entirety of G Gundam.
It is fascinating to see how Japanese animation reinterprets Europe and the Americas.
