New Apparel

Friday, February 29th, 2008

Hello all! It’s time to update this kitty blog again. I remember there were many restrictions to this cartoon when we first started to work on it. We can’t change their physical appearance and proportions and we needed to keep Hello Kitty and her friends safe from harm. Anything that looks dangerous must be removed, etc etc. One of the things that we always wanted to change is have to have them wearing different clothes. However, that didn’t happen till later in productions. In fact, in the newer episode, Hello Kitty and her friends will be able to do all these crazy things that was considered a taboo back then! I won’t go into detail about this but I would like to show you some of the character’s new clothes. Check out Keroppi!

Run My Melody, Run

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

It’s another fun-filled day for Hello Kitty and Friends! This time, there’s a sporting event in their school and everyone is encouraged to join. Everyone is excited except for My Melody? She’s afraid of doing badly in the sprint and what’s worse is that she doesn’t believe in herself. Kitty and friends do their best to lift her spirits but she just won’t believe them. Poor, My Melody. Desperate for help, My Melody implores the help of the Little Twin Stars. A magical wristband is created to help My Melody run faster. Will it work? My Melody finds out that the real magic is in her – her confidence. Once again, we learn another valuable lesson! Yay! Stay tuned!

My Melody is an honest, good-natured little girl. She lives in Mari Land with her mother, father, grandmother and her brother, Rhythm. Her pink hood, which was made by her grandmother, is her most favorite possession in the world.

If she’s not baking cookies with her mother, she’s out playing with Hello Kitty or her mouse friend named Flat. Her favorite food is almond pound cake. My Melody cherishes her friends the most and her friends love her back resoundingly.

Hello Kitty on TVB

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

Greetings! For anyone who lives in Hong Kong, “The adventure of Hello Kitty and friends” has aired on TVB last weekend! The show starts at 4:00pm on Saturday and Sunday. I waited at home the whole day on Saturday just for the show! When they started to play the opening song, I felt so relieved! The fact that I can see our work hard finally shown on the TV screen, it made me forget about all those tough times that we’ve been through. It’s a moment of honor for all those who had worked on this cartoon and it gives us the energy and inspiration to do better in the future! Not to mention that the chinese voice over for Hello Kitty and her friends was very well done! It was very cute indeed! So if you did miss the chance to see it last weekend, you better not miss it again! Good job all!

Mmmhmmmm. Anyway, everyone in SanrioTown is busy for the day of love: Dear Daniel is drawing up a plan to give Hello Kitty the best surprise Valentine’s party ever while Keroppi and Pochacco are scheming up a prank. Everyone is busy! I think Cinnamoroll is planning to serve heart-shaped cakes in his coffee shop. Yay!

Happy Chinese New Year! Wooot!

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

Hello friends, help yourself to another generous heap of Sanriotown goodness. Haha! Today is special because it is…

* drumroll *

Chinese New Year! Kung Hei Fat Choi, people!

Of course, Hello Kitty and friends will surely get into the festivities as well. There’s going to be dragon dances and fireworks for sure! Be careful with the fireworks and make sure an adult is there to supervise. Safety first. Anywaaaaay, as sure as the sun will rise, Hello Kitty’s mom will be baking sticky rice cakes for everyone! Yay, ricecakes!! I heard that Keroppi LOVES rice cakes. But… but… who doesn’t?

With the coming of a new year, we will all have a chance to change ourselves for the better. Remember, there’s always room to improve yourself.

Happy New Year!
