The short-form series is produced by Split Studio and follows Hello Kitty, My Melody, Keroppi, Badtz-Maru, Pompompurin, and Kuromi as they go on adventures in the wonderful world of Sanrio. The series will showcase their unique personalities as they go outside of their comfort zones to learn new things, overcome obstacles, and make new friends. This is the first animated YouTube series developed for U.S. audiences that features Hello Kitty and her friends living in a shared universe.
“Sanrio has always taken immense pride in its commitment to friendship, kindness, and inclusivity, making the debut of the Hello Kitty and Friends Supercute Adventures animation series remarkably special during our 60th anniversary year,” said Jill Koch, senior vice president of sales and business development at Sanrio in a statement. “Now, our fans and viewers will be able to engage and relate with our characters more closely than ever.”
