error ' ; ' expected dispenser.getCharacterName());

It seems that everything is exactly as the tutorial, but I'm receiving an error. Could someone please give me some advise? :) Thanks

public class Example {

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

}

You are almost right, just put the a quotation mark at the end of the string "part" of the System.out.printf. Like this:

public class Example {
public static void main(String[] args) {
    // Your amazing code goes here...
    System.out.println("We are a making a new Pez Dispenser.");
    PezDispenser dispenser = new PezDispenser("Donatello");
    System.out.printf("The dispenser character is %s\n,       <------- right here
                        dispenser.getCharacterName());
}

}
    System.out.printf("The dispenser character is %s\n",       <------- like this
                        dispenser.getCharacterName());

I hope that helps a little bit
