Pez Dispenser error...


 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();        
        System.out.printf("The dispenser is %s %n", 




 class PezDispenser {
    private String characterName = "Yoda";

    public String getCharacteName(){
        return characterName;

It looks like there are some typos in the code with the method name.
