(USA TODAY) -- Bart, Homer, Marge and the gang are about to get even cuter.
Today I'm happy to break some big news for fans of Hello Kitty and The Simpsons: Next year, the two popular franchises will merge for a special line of products.
It's a landmark year for both of them, with HK's 40th anniversary and The Simpsons' 25th being celebrated. I'm told the collaboration between Sanrio, Inc.
and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products "will target collectors
with limited-edition collectibles, while offering something for all
It's still too early for specific details about the products, but Sanrio president and COO Janet Hsu promises "a fun and unexpected take on The Simpsons' transformation within Hello Kitty's super-cute world." Color me intrigued.
The product line will go on sale during the "back-to-school time frame" in 2014.
