10 most mindblowing Sanrio character backstories
"Hello Kitty isn't a cat" and more shocking revelations from Sanrio character bios
Yesterday morning, our whole world turned upside down after the LA Times revealed that Hello Kitty is NOT a cat. Whaaat? Despite having whiskers, a tail, and being shaped like a feline, Kitty White is, in fact, a British girl living in the suburbs of London. She plays the piano, bakes cookies, and weighs three apples. You should know this because unlike her real pet cat Charmmy, who wears a collar and walks on all fours, Kitty holds herself like one of us. She’s a person, not an animal. An animal-like person, if you will.
Consider our minds blown.
Naturally, we just had to read up on all our other favourite Sanrio characters to find out whether Little Twin Stars are still stars, Bad Batz-Maru is still a penguin, and Keroppi is still a frog. Suffice to say, we emerged from the labyrinth of character bios feeing like Neo after he woke up outside the Matrix.
