Hello Kitty and The Simpsons to collaborate in 2014

The Simpsons and Hello KittyIn what has to be one of the most unusual, yet fascinating, collaborations of recent times, Sanrio’s Hello Kitty will be joining 20th Century Fox’s The Simpsons for a range of new limited edition products next year. The crossover is to celebrate the two hitting their own personal anniversaries in 2014.

Yes, this is actually happening.

2014 will see Hello Kitty celebrate her 40th anniversary. It will also be 25 years since animated sitcom The Simpsons was first aired.

“Hello Kitty and The Simpsons have impacted pop culture around the world,” said President and COO of Sanrio Inc, Janet Hsu. “Our collaboration comes at a perfect time as we celebrate major milestones for both brands. The exclusive product offering will feature a fun and unexpected take on The Simpsons’ transformation within Hello Kitty’s supercute world.”

The collaboration will see each Simpsons character merge with the supercute design of Hello Kitty. At this time it is not known what kind of products we can expect, only that they are expected to launch “just in time for back-to-school” in 2014.

What are your thoughts on this unique collaboration? What do you think the chances are that Bart will probably receive a Badtz-Maru style makeover?
