Role in the film
Ken was first seen playing tennis with Vanessa, both not noticing Barry on the ball after being stuck on it while he was with the pollen jocks. He is later seen again when he and his friend Andy and his girlfriend were talking. Just as Ken saw Barry on Andy's girlfriend's guacamole, he got out his winter boots and prepared to squash him, but Vanessa comes in and stops him. She rips up his brochure so she can set Barry free. Later it is shown that Vanessa and he have Yogurt night on every part of the week (I don't know.) and when Barry shows up, he is confused about Barry and Vanessa's team up to sue the humans for stealing the honey. She takes him out so she and Barry can be alone, which raises Ken's fuse. Ken then becomes very, very jealous of Barry and prepares to kill him in Vanessa's bathroom with an Italian Vogue and then by flushing him down the toilet, to no success. Vanessa realizes this and drags Ken out of the bathroom where they argue and Vanessa, having enough of Ken's attitude, breaks up with him, saying that Barry is the nicest bee she met in a long time. Ken is last seen at the epilogue, angry that Vanessa and Barry are probably going out and they just started a real estate/honey/flower shop. Andy just drags him away.
- Ken says that he prefers sugar free artificial sweeteners made by man, though earlier, he was eating frozen yogurt and yogurt comes from the milk of a cow.
- He is allergic to bees and doesn't like honey.
- Patrick Warburton, Ken's voice actor, previously voiced another villain: Ian in Open Season.
- Ken is similar to Gaston; they are good-looking, but they're also psychotically jealous and try to kill the protagonists who are dating their women.
