Hello Kitty Pictures - Cute Cat Images to Print

Updated on September 29, 2012

The odds are strong that you have, at one point in your life, seen a set of Hello Kitty pictures. Hello Kitty is a tremendously popular cartoon character. It may come as some surprise that Hello Kitty was first conceived and made popular more than 15 years before she ever got a cartoon show. Hello Kitty was created in Japan in 1974 by Yuko Shimizu and made her first appearance on a vinyl coin purse that same year. It wasn’t until 1976 that she first crossed the Pacific Ocean and appeared in the United States. Since that time however, the white Japanese bobtail cat with the red bow, has exploded into a culture phenomenon with the Hello Kitty trademark worth $1 to $5 billion annually.

Despite the fact that she was created in Japan her profile lists her as born in London, England. She is also five apples tall, her favorite word is “friendship” and her blood type is A. It’s amazing what this, 36-year-old cat, whose full-name is Kitty White, has been able to do impact the culture.

There are Hello Kitty graphics on almost any product you can think of, from stickers to massagers, clothing to toasters she has been marketed endlessly. The Hello Kitty trend does not look as if it will end anytime soon either. If you do a search on Google for “Hello Kitty Pictures” you will find more than 8,820,000 results. That is certainly far from a small number. There are hundreds upon hundreds of sites offering free and paid Hello Kitty images. One such site is HelloKittyFan.com, which offers free wallpaper images and coloring pages along with sets of Hello Kitty pictures.

In the top 10 search results are two photo bucket (two search result) pages that are filled with Hello Kitty Images. There are over 50,000 icons, pictures and graphics of Hello Kitty on photobucket.com alone. So why are there so many Hello Kitty pictures floating around the internet? Aside from the immense popularity among youths, Hello Kitty caters to the older demographics that grew up with her too.

Along with finding Hello Kitty graphics on school supplies and toasters, images of the little cat can be found on bottles of wine, checks, debit cards, guitars and even airplanes. In 2010, four Hello Kitty wines were introduced, while in 2009 Bank of America offered Hello Kitty themed accounts that had pictures of Hello Kitty on checks and debit cards. The Hello Kitty jets, offered by EVA Air, only lasted about two years but there were two that served the Japanese market which were covered with Hello Kitty pictures and had a Hello Kitty theme on the inside as well. Hello Kitty also lends her image to two theme parks, Harmonyland and Sanrio Puroland, and a restaurant, Hello Kitty Sweets. It’s obvious Hello Kitty has a firm grip on popular culture and it does not seem as though the feline will be letting go anytime soon.

Hello Kitty pictures will continue to show up all over the place, in video games (there are already more than 10) or in cartoons, or in products put out by major corporations, or in fan art created you, or on your computer as a screen saver. Hello Kitty is all over the place, you might not even have to look for her to find her.

Here are some of my favorite Hello Kitty pictures I have found online!  I’m sure you will see some that strike your fancy too.
