Unexpected ;

Can't find the missing or extra semi-colon. Looked for it a long time. Please help!

VideoGamesController.cs
using System.Web.Mvc;
using Treehouse.Models;

namespace Treehouse.Controllers
{
    public class VideoGamesController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Detail()
        {
            VideoGame vg = new VideoGame()
            {
               Title = "Super Mario 64";
               Description = "Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.";
               Characters = new string[]
                 {
                    "Mario",
                    "Princess Peach",
                    "Bowser",
                    "Toad",
                    "Yoshi"
                 } ;  
             };
              return View(vg);

        }
    }

There are a few extra semicolons.

On lines 12 and 13, there are semicolons where there should be commas.

And on line 21, there's a stray extra semicolon.

It can take a while to get used to semicolons separating statements, but commas separating items in an object.
