So after taking a long time waiting for votes to come in (and lazing about or being otherwise inattentive), I have decided to close the vote and tally the results.

For the caterpillar, the name Buddy won out by a fair margin, whereas for the butterfly, Betty and Francia were close/tied depending on how I weighted the votes as far as first preference and second preference etc.  In the end, Betty won out because more people seemed to prefer alliterative name pairs: Buddy/Betty, Carlos/Carmen, Frank/Francia, etc. and Buddy was the top voted name for the caterpillar.

So the official name for him/her is Buddy/Betty as far as the group is concerned.  You can call him Buddy, you can call her Betty, you can call him/her whatever you prefer if you have your own name for him/her.  The name won't be enforced, it is simply to have a common moniker by which to refer to him/her as because 'character', 'caterpillar' and 'butterfly' are cumbersome words to have to keep using.  It is also useful for anyone who doesn't have any name of their own for him/her.

If you have any questions/comments/concerns about the vote please feel free to PM me.  I hope everyone is satisfied with the results.

As a side note, this was mentioned in the comments of our group page, but :iconparaceratherium: found the Disney Wikia article I have been working on: <disney.wikia.com/wiki/Singing_…>  Please check it out and let me know what you think or let me know if you have any suggested changes to be made to it.

I would like to encourage everyone to submit any and all fanart/fanfics of the character and to invite or suggest new members.  If you are new to the group, or simply browsing, please check older blog posts for some information, and a bit of extra content to be found elsewhere online.

*DISCLAIMER* Buddy/Betty and the short s/he is from, "Springtime for Pluto", belong to the Disney Corporation.

Group Info

This group is dedicated to an obscure character who only had around two minutes of screen time from the Disney Short, "Springtime for Pluto", which stars the classic Disney character, Pluto. The character this group is dedicated to, who unfortunately doesn't have a name, is a (heavily implied male) caterpillar who appears about a third of the way into the short and, following some cartoon antics where he is almost eaten by a quail, climbs up Pluto's tail, sings, spins a cocoon, and immediately emerges as a perfectly humanoid, female butterfly, who has been compared with an exotic hispanic dancer and a pin-up girl, as she dances teasingly for Pluto upon emerging.

And that's all there is, but it is the group's founder's opinion that he is not the only one who was left with a lasting impression after seeing that scene, and that there are many others who are attempting to search in vain for such an obscure character, that a small cult following exists.

So the purpose of this group is ultimately to unite, concentrate, collect, discuss and create anything and everything there is about this character (and the short that this character appeared in). I will start by collecting and sharing everything I have found so far, and I hope that over time, new content will be created, art, writings, etc. Fetishes are welcome, in particular, TF/TG as that is something that I feel is paramount to the character.

Springtime brings wonderful and magnificent changes.

Something new related to her. I asked Lugube to do a sketch of her in a stream.

May pay him later to color it.

Sadly the youtube account of the user who uploaded the best quality "Springtime for Pluto" video was closed. The most informative comments were gone as a result :(

That's unfortunate. Youtube's copyright policies are getting a little too much, in my opinion, I mean, "Springtime for Pluto" is almost 70 years old.
