, an anthropologist from the University of Hawaii, dedicated years studying about Hello Kitty. She was busy preparing the Hello Kitty exhibit at Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.
While preparing her written script, she was corrected by Sanrio. “I was corrected, very firmly,” she said on an interview. “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.”
