OK did ya know? State Cartoon Character

On April 6, 2005, Governor Henry signed SB464 into law and Gusty® became Oklahoma's Official State Cartoon.

Under Title 25 of the Oklahoma Statutes is GUSTY® was created by Don Woods as part of his Tulsa weather cast from 1954 to 1989.
(From GUSTY®'s Story) Don and GUSTY® made their way into our homes and soon our hearts via the new ABC affiliate station, KTUL, originally broadcasted out of Muskogee, Oklahoma. Its broadcast range included the eastern portion of Oklahoma and into the bordering cities of Arkansas and Kansas. During the weather broadcast, one may see GUSTY® enjoying a spring frolic in the flowers; GUSTY® diving into the “Frady Hole” during a stormy day; GUSTY® dripping wet from a sultry summer afternoon; GUSTY® raking leaves while glaring at the last leaf still on the tree, or GUSTY® bundled up for a blue northeastern snowstorm.

I wonder how many states have an official cartoon character?
