Invented during the height of the Great Depression with the core intent to make people smile, Kit-Cat Klocks are an enduring icon of Americana design kitsch.. Oregon-based designer Earl Arnault first created the smiling cat clock in 1932, complete with its rolling eyes and wagging tail. Over 85 years later, the company continues its American-made legacy, with every clock still manufactured and made in California. Always with an infectiously optimistic ethos, the Kit-Cat Creed is printed on every box: “Put a smile on everyone’s face; Love in everyone’s heart; Energy in everyone’s body; and—Be a positive force in everyone’s life!”
The Hundreds pays homage to an icon of Americana design with a limited edition The Hundreds X Kit-Kat Klock, featuring a custom allover “furry leopard” print. The collaboration has a direct throughline to The Hundreds’ previous partnership with Back to the Future, since the smiling clock makes a cameo in the opening of the 1985 film.
