File this under "best news ever": Hello Kitty is getting her own cartoon show. KISS are getting their own cartoon show. AND IT'S THE SAME SHOW.
Yes, according to USA Today, children's network The Hub--inspired by a line of genius merchandise called "KISS x Hello Kitty" that features Hello Kitty faces painted up to look like the classic KISS lineup--has thrillingly greenlit a new KISS/Kitty kiddy show. The program will star "four KISS x Hello Kitty characters living their rock 'n' roll dreams and bringing pink anarchy to every situation they are in."
So basically, it's going to be the best thing that ever happened to television since, well, ever--or at least since another litter of animated rocker felines, Josie & The Pussycats, was still on the air.
USA Today reports that the program will be executive-produced by the ever-enterprising Gene Simmons, of course, and is tentatively titled "KISS Hello Kitty." We actually think "Detroit Rock Kitty" has a much cooler ring to it...but regardless, we cannot wait to see the rock 'n' roll fur fly.
In the meantime, here's a little KISS cartoon Yahoo! Music came up with back in 2005, just to tide you over:
- Hello Kitty tries on Mick Jagger's mouth
- Hello Kitty's rock 'n' roll hotel suite
