What is wrong with my Pez Dispenser code

public class Example {

public static void main(String[] args) { // Your amazing code goes here... System.out.println("We are making a new PEZ dispenser"); PezDispenser dispenser = new PezDispenser (Donatello); System.out.printf ("The new dispenser is %s %s", dispenser.getCharacterName() );

Donatello is a string so it has to be enclosed in quotes like this:

PezDispenser dispenser = new PezDispenser("Donatello"); 

If you write a word without using quotes Java will assume you are referencing a variable or something like that, so you always have to use quotes when entering some arbitrary text.

Thanks much appreciated!
