The Official Hello Kitty/Chucky Hybrid of Your Nightmares Is Here



It’s hard to imagine any American company being as free with their kid-focused character as Sanrio is with Hello Kitty. A normal marketing person might just say, “Hey, wait a minute. A cute anthropomorphic kitten and a voodoo-possessed doll inhabited by a serial killer are not compatible!” But in Japan, that is just backward-thinking, as this Hello Kitty Chucky will go on sale in Universal theme parks next month.

I think we may have finally found the item that will test my wife’s undying loyalty to Hello Kitty, since she hates Chucky. Stay tuned….

UPDATE: Wife reaction.

“Why must they hurt me?” Then, “Like I’ve always said, anyone can play in her sandbox. This is proof of that.”
