Air Bud, Wallace’s Gromit, Scooby-Doo, and Paris Hilton’s Tinkberbell are all bona fide cuddly celebrities who probably even have their own representatives in Hollywood. Not trailing far along is Rebecca Bonbon, an adopted Parisian bulldog who lives the sweet New Yorker life that entails dining on bonbons, traveling and shopping.
Born in 2005, Rebecca Bonbon owes her posh life to Yuko Shimizu, the same hands that created Sanrio character Hello Kitty 36 years ago.
The rightful owner of Bonbon, Shimizu, worked at Sanrio Co., Ltd. from 1969 to 1976 after she graduated from Musashino Art University in Kodaira, Tokyo, Japan. She drew inspiration from the cats in Through the Looking Glass and decided to sketch the former Hello Kitty we now know and love. Soon Shimizu left the company to start a family of her own. And now, as an independent designer, she introduces Hello Kitty’s canine cousin to Hollywood.
