Don't lie, you have a sticker of this smiley little bunny somewhere within the depths of your old stationary collection. Created in 1975, the same year as Hello Kitty, My Melody is a regular Sanrio fixture with her trademark hood that mysteriously covers her head and ears.
Just look at that innocent face!
Obviously, curious people must wonder, "What's under that hood? What exactly is she hiding?" Wikipedia tells me it's derived from Little Red Riding Hood, but ever-imaginative Japanese artists give us an alternative explanation with this recently viral image.
(WARNING: MAY SCAR YOUR CHILDHOOD!)
Sad face. Don't say I didn't warn you.
