Historic Kitty Cartoon Collaborations

Hello Kitty X the Simpsons Collection Announced for 2014

— October 15, 2013 — Fashion
The world as we know it is about to change forever thanks to the announcement of the Hello Kitty x The Simpsons collection. The iconic kitty and the most popular cartoon family of all time will come together to celebrate birthdays, with Sanrio celebrating 40 years of Hello Kitty and The Simpsons celebrating 25 years of being on the air.

Not much is known about the Hello Kitty x The Simpsons collaboration. Sanrio COO, Janet Hsu, did say that The Simpsons would be given a Hello Kitty makeover, which means that there probably won't be an all-yellow Pochacco. No hard release dates have been set as of yet, but the collection is expected to hit stores in time for back-to-school 2014.
