Peanut butter and chocolate, chips and dip, Hello Kitty and KISS?
USA Today’s Pop Candy is reporting that the adorable cartoon kitten is teaming up with infamous rock band KISS for a new animated television show for The Hub, the channel that’s also home to My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic. The show will feature “four Kiss x Hello Kitty characters living their rock ‘n’ roll dreams and bringing pink anarchy to every situation they are in.”
Kiss Hello Kitty (working title) is now in development with KISS frontmant Gene Simmons signed on to executive produce. While the pairing may seem unlikely and unexpected to grownups, any Hello Kitty fan can tell you that the show is actually a brand extension from a series of Kiss x Hello Kitty products, which feature Hello Kitty wearing the trademark KISS make up. That product line debuted way back in 2010.
KISS’s Paul Stanley said about the project, “Knowing and viewing The Hub as I do daily with my three children, it is the perfect home for us to bring the Kiss Hello Kitty juggernaut to yet another generation.” Hello Kitty , Chococat and Badzt Maru have not yet commented on the story.
