Hello Kitty Wiki

Chococat (チョコキャット, Chokokyatto) is one of the many fictional characters produced by Japanese corporation Sanrio. He is drawn as a sweet black cat with huge black eyes, four whiskers, and like counterpart Hello Kitty, no mouth. His name comes from his chocolate-colored nose. His whiskers are able to pick up information like antennae, so he is often the first to know about things. Chococat is a very spunky cat who loves to play around. Chococat is one of the Sanrio characters, popular like Hello Kitty, he loves to fool around with his best pals.

  • Special talent: He’s always up on the latest news - thanks to his ultra-sensitive "antenna" whiskers - but can be a little scatter-brained at times.
  • Parents: Rory and Catrina whom in which are currently divorced, but Chococat is currently under his mother's residence.

History and Merchandising

Chococat was first released in 1996 and his birthday is May 10.

Like other Sanrio characters, he appears on a variety of merchandise including stationery, coffee mugs, plush toys, bath towels, hats, purses, notebooks, etc. In America, Chococat is one of Sanrio's most popular characters with both adults and children.

When Sanrio releases new Chococat lines, the background colors and designs, Chococat's collar and fur color, and his accessories and friends are often altered. Chococat was originally pictured with a blue collar, but he has since been depicted wearing different colored collars, scarves, and even a Lei. Sanrio has also produced new Chococat products that portray him in a greyish-brown color. In the Momoberry version, he is pink with a top hat, bow tie, and cane. Line names are often heavily relied upon in internet sales descriptions.
