Hello Kitty Billionaire Revealed


Hello Kitty -- the cute, red-bowed white cat that is one of the most recognizable franchises in the world -- has crowned a new billionaire.

Shintaro Tsuji, the 85-year-old founder and CEO of Sanrio, was just revealed to be worth more than a billion dollars by the crew over at Bloomberg Billionaires. Soaring sales of Hello Kitty products helped the company stock price double this year.
