Thanks! That's exactly what I thinking when I looked at the old ones. He has this laid back "I don't care" look that I liked. The downside was that it was hard to make his animations really.... well, animated like that.
Flattery will get you everywhere, madame! I was actually thinking the first new sprite would be the base model, and each item could be equipped individually. So you could wear the brown coat with the black hat and the boots. Making new ones shouldn't be too difficult either, so (hopefully) there will be tons of combinations.
Maybe even give Goo some fancy hats.
