These were my 6 favorite suggestions for a new character. Please make your vote in the comment section below this post (or tweet it to @GreenCartoons). Thanks to all who made suggestions!
Thoughts on the potential new characters:
An angry flower: There were many flower suggestions, so the type of flower (I think I like Black Eyed Susan the best) and whether or not he/she is angry is up to you. Feel free to be specific in your vote.
A love interest for bee: Suggested by two people–my dad being one–so I had to add her.
A worm: I love worms! It’s an easy addition. Too easy?
A Politician: An interesting (and topical) suggestion from EcoChildsPlay’s Jennifer Lance. I was going to draw the politician simply as a wig, but decided to add the question mark…may go back to just the wig.
A goat: Another great backyard animal. I drew a young goat with shoes, just ‘cuz.
An egg with legs: I liked this suggestion mostly because Wendy is so silent and you’d think an egg in a shell would be as well, but I’d make him/her very chatty. However, I feel like this character already exists. Is anyone aware of an egg-with-legs cartoon character?

I like the egg with legs best.
It looks so cute and has a lot of hidden potential for the stories.
