Appearances with mouth
Hello Kitty, as well as her family and friends, is mostly depicted mouth less, especially in merchandise, which makes her similar to how Johnny Bravo occasionally appeared on screen. There are many debates on why Hello Kitty doesn't have a mouth. Her current designer says that she should have one because without, she lacks emotion. However, in response to this statement many fans said that her costumes depict her emotion, so she has no need of one. The official Sanrio stated that she speaks from the heart, having no need of any particular language. Hello Kitty was depicted as having a mouth in a segment in the series Sanrio World of Animation, where fans could see a smile on her face. However, it has been said that Hello Kitty does have a mouth, but it is not drawn, as the creators wanted Hello Kitty's emotions to be interpreted by the viewer.
