In the same way that every pillar holding up the palace of Ba Sing Se has a function and every bender brings balance to the world, every character in Avatar the Last Air Bender is important to the series. Including the Cabbage Guy! 

In a devastated world filled with genocide and war, melancholy looms over the heads of the populice. It's up to certain characters to bring comic relief to the story. 

In the Netflix live-action remake, which is currently in development, it's understood why the directors might leave out a character with so few lines. But... we must first think about what the Cabbage Guy means to the story. Yes, his misfortune in regards to his cabbages is quite funny, but that's only what the casual viewer sees. If we dive deeper we see a struggling business owner who perseveres through ridiculous hardship, and follows his passion for cabbages across the world. INSPIRING. We see an immigrant who risks all he loves to find shelter in an unknown city. DARING. The allusion to the ongoing economic and immigration issues in our society today is unparalleled in all other character story lines. No he doesn't have a name, but who needs a name when you are a symbol of hope for the oppressed. Does God have a name?

THE CABBAGE GUY IS ESSENTIAL.

All I ask is that the creators of the live action remake (some people at Netflix, Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko) include the Cabbage Guy in the series, and give me the opportunity to play his role. I PROMISE, to embody the spirit who is the Cabbage Guy. 

Please sign this petition to bring awareness to the necessity of the role and awareness of my interest in the role to the creators.

Yours truly,

Matt Paronish
