      The creators of one of the world's most widely-recognised cartoon characters have set the record straight. Japanese toymaker Sanrio have declared that its iconic creation Hello Kitty is not a cat. The bombshell came to light following publicity for an upcoming exhibition on the character at the Japanese American National Museum. The curator of the exhibition, anthropologist Christine R Yano, said she received a mail from Sanrio correcting her script for the show. Ms Yano confirmed that: "Hello Kitty is not a cat. She is a little girl. She is a friend….She's never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature." The Sanrio website states Kitty is "a bright little girl with a heart of gold."

      世界上被廣泛認可的卡通形象的設計者澄清了事實。日本玩具制造商三麗鵬公司宣布,公司的圖標作品Hello Kitty并不是一只貓。這一驚人事件為即將開始的日美國立博物館的形象展覽會做了宣傳。展會的管理者,人類學家克麗絲汀稱,她收到了一封來自三麗鵬的郵件,內容是展覽腳本的修改版。亞諾女士堅定地說,Hello Kitty不是貓。她是一個小女孩,是我們的朋友,但她不是貓。她從來沒有四只腳走路的形象,始終都保持著小姑娘的站姿和坐姿。三麗鵬網站稱,Hello Kitty是有著美麗心靈的小女孩。

      Hello Kitty has taken the world by storm since its introduction in 1974. It has become ubiquitous worldwide, adorning everything from chopsticks to airplanes. The Japanese carmaker Daihatsu even sold a specially branded Hello Kitty car. It had Kitty-emblazoned upholstery, a speedometer with the character's face etched into the glass and a Kitty-shaped gear stick. The creators designed the character's face to epitomise cuteness. Sanrio account for her lack of a mouth, saying she doesn't have one because she speaks with her heart. Social media has been abuzz with the revelation that Kitty is a girl. Rapper Mike Shinoda tweeted: "This is worse than finding out Pluto is not a planet."

      Hello Kitty在1974年產生之后就風靡全球。Hello Kitty在世界上無處不在,成為了從筷子到飛機等一切事物的裝飾物。日本汽車制造商大發,甚至出售了一款特殊的以Hello Kitty冠名的汽車。這款汽車的墊襯物是以Hello Kitty形象裝飾的,里程計的設計是由Hello Kitty的形象嵌在玻璃內部,變速桿也是Hello Kitty的形狀。設計師對面部形象的設計是為了體現可愛。三麗鵬為Hello Kitty沒有嘴巴做了解釋,她沒有嘴巴,是因為她用心靈與人交流。社會媒體對Hello Kitty是小女孩的揭露議論紛紛。說唱歌手麥克在微博上稱,這比發現冥王星不是猩猩還要糟糕。
