    Will Howard address this?

    Your childhood has been torn asunder by the Gods that once gifted you. In preparing a Hello Kitty retrospective for the Japanese American National Museum, University of Hawaii Anthropologist Christine R. Yano was given one major correction by Hello Kittyowners Sanrio (via LA Times):


    "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."


    Indeed, after rigorously applying a variation of the "Duck test," it all became clear: she only kind of looks like a cat, she
    doesn't walk like a cat, and she doesn't talk like a cat (although I can't recall her ever making a noise). She's also, according to Yano, British.

    Betty Boop, on the other hand, was originally a puppy. Her long ears morphed into those hoop earrings. Her first appearance (1930); look for her at about 2:15.
