Mr. Bounce is the 22nd book in the Mr. Men series. Mr. Bounce is small and bounces around like a rubber, making life very difficult for him. One day, after banging his head on the ceiling from bouncing off a chair, Mr. Bounce has decided he's had it with all this bouncing about and decides to see the doctor about it. On the way however, he trips on a pebble and becomes a live tennis ball for two boys in a tennis court. After taking a bus to the doctor's, Mr. Bounce bounces into the doctor's office and into Dr. Makeyouwell's mid-morning coffee. After Mr. Bounce explains his problem, Dr. Makeyouwell gives him the cure for bouncing about: heavy red boots. Mr. Bounce wears the boots to bed that night. The next morning, he bounces out of bed, but the boots make him fall through the floor straight into the kitchen.

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, he looks the same as in the books except his hat has a stripe on it. Unlike the books, he actually likes bouncing in the show. His bouncing about causes chaos for the other Mr. Men and Little Misses in Dillydale, especially when he's out in public. Mr. Bounce speaks with an Indian accent (Irish in UK version). His catchphrase is, "Hello! Goodbye!". He often speaks quickly. In the US and UK Versions, he is voiced by Sam Gold and Simon Greenall respectively.

Mr. Bounce appears under the titles Monsieur Bing (French), Don Saltarin (Spanish), Meneer Stuiter/Meneertje Stuiterbal (Dutch), Ο Κύριος Χοροπηδούλης (Greek), 蹦跳先生 (Taiwan), Unser Herr Hupf (German) Senhor Saltitão (Portuguese) and Mister Beag (Gaeilge).

Mr. Bump is the 6th book in the Mr. Men series. Mr. Bump can't help having accidents. He takes a vacation and falls off a boat. Later, he falls into a deep hole at the beach. When he wants a job, the best job he can find is walking around and bumping into trees on Mr. Barley's apple orchard, making the apples fall off the trees.

In Mr. Bump Loses His Memory he falls out of his bedroom window and bumps his head, promptly causing him to lose his memory. He is told by Mr. Muddle that his name is, in fact, Mr. Careful, thus encouraging our confused Mr. Bump to try several jobs for which great care is needed, such as carrying eggs and delivering milk in glass bottles. His memory is restored when he walks into a tree, causing him to fall into a river.

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Bump is a regular character. He kept his looks except one of his bandages is gone and is always having accidents, more often than not non-bump-related ones such as accidentally being cleaned in a car wash. Like Mr. Grumpy and Mr. Small, his favourite food is liverwurst sandwiches, as mentioned in the Beach episode. He lives in a square house which is olive, with a black chimney, arched windows and a bandaged roof. Often, Little Miss Whoops, his next-door neighbor, Mr. Tickle or Little Miss Helpful is the cause of his accidents. His catchphrase in the show is, "Oh poopity-poop!" and "You'll never learn.", usually exclaimed when his situation turns bad. In the US and UK Versions, he is voiced by Aaron Albertus and Simon Greenall respectively.

He looks out the window and meets Mr. Daydream, who invites Jack to come on an adventure with him. They get on the back of a huge bird, and the bird flies them from place to place. In the jungle, a crocodile tricks them into using his back as a bridge, and tries to toss them into his mouth, reminiscent of what the fox did to The Gingerbread Man. The bird rescues them and takes Jack and Mr. Daydream to other places, such as the North Pole, and finally to the Wild West, where Mr. Daydream puts on a hat too big for him, and cannot see. He calls Jack's name from under the hat, and Jack realizes that it wasn't Mr. Daydream calling Jack's name, but his teacher.

In the US and UK Versions, he is voiced by Joseph J. Terry and Rob Rackstraw.

Mr. Fussy's catch phrases are, "Mr. Messy!" and "Sweet Henrietta!" ("Sweet apple strudel!" in the UK version, in line with his German Accent in that version).

He lives in Happyland[citation needed], He's always in a bad mood, hating anyone or anything he comes across.

Like Mr. Small and Mr. Bump, his favorite food is liverwurst sandwiches, as mentioned in Beach and Construction. His favourite TV show is called "Trout Tuesday", which has been run at least once by Mr. Lazy. According to what he said in the episode Farm, he was raised in the country.

Mr. Jelly is the 15th book in the Mr. Men series. Mr. Jelly is afraid of everything, such as the snapping of a twig. He often hides under the covers. One day, he finds a tramp sleeping in the woods, whom he is afraid of, until the vagabond teaches him to count to ten whenever he feels nervous.

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Jelly (now renamed Mr. Nervous in both the US and UK broadcasts) has been given an egg-shaped body, purple skin, glasses, a sea green nose (also appears light blue), and black-and-white sneakers, and is depicted as a stereotypical nerd. His catchphrases: "Oh, no no no no no no!" and "This is the end!" In the episode "Food", he says radishes give him uncontrollable flatuence in the US but terrible tummyaches in the UK, he doesn't like beets, and that he likes sprouts as long as they have been firmly washed. Mr. Nervous often goes on wacky adventures when really he's doing something as wacky as he's imagining, most times something unrelated to the episode's subject matter (i.e. He imagines he's in a rocket ship, out of gas and about crash when it turns out he's just on a carousel). He lives in a lighthouse with a large searchlight and many locks on the door. In the US and UK Versions, he is voiced by Danny Katiana and Tim Whitnall.

Mr. Lazy is the 17th book in the Mr. Men series by Roger Hargreaves. Mr. Lazy is lazy, he lives in Sleepyland, where there are only four hours a day, as opposed to 24, and it takes two regular hours for water to boil and three regular hours for bread to toast. One day, Mr. Lazy sits down for a nap, and is awoken by Mr. Busy and Mr. Bustle. They overwork him, until Mr. Bustle blows a whistle, requiring Mr. Lazy to run as fast as he can. Mr. Lazy runs, but his legs don't get him anywhere because he is sitting on a chair in the garden. He wakes up to realize it was all a dream, and the whistle was the kettle boiling in the kitchen. He sits down to have breakfast, and he goes to sleep yet again.

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, he is more "lazy" rather than "sleepy" as he was in the books and hates work. His color is changed from pink to green, his shape changes into a more angular, slouched over shape and his hat changes into a red (also appears pink) newsboy-style cap that covers his eyes. He also wears socks and flip flops. He lives in a camper-style trailer, with the garbage cans and mailbox overfilled with trash and mail, respectively. He has a monotone voice that sounds like Eeyore's from Winnie The Pooh. In the US and UK Versions, he is voiced by Phil Lollar and Tim Whitnall respectively.

Mr. Lazy appears under the titles Monsieur Endormi (French), Don Vago (Spanish), Unser Herr Faulpelz (German), Meneer Luilak (Dutch), 懶惰先生 (Taiwan), 게을러씨 (Korean), Ο Κύριος Τεμπέλης (Greek), Faetter Slov (Danish), Herra Latur (Icelandic) and Senhor Preguiçoso (Portuguese).

Mr. Messy is the 8th book in the Mr. Men series by Roger Hargreaves. Mr. Messy is pink and really messy, but has a really nice smile. Mr. Messy lives in a messy house until Mr. Neat and Mr. Tidy come to clean his house and give him a bath (his first ever, as the bathroom had previously been the messiest of the house). He becomes neat and thinks he has to change his name. Mr. Messy then becomes clean.

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Messy is not only messy but unclean and unhygienic also, notably more than he is messy. He was given blue and white sneakers (similar to Little Miss Chatterbox's, only with patches of dirt on the toes, and both on occasion in the show and in his character image, one of them with untied laces), and his limbs are also made solid, instead of scribbled like they were originally. Also, his house is no longer by itself in a messy field. He lives right next door to Mr. Persnickety (U.S.) / Mr. Pernickety (UK) (originally named Mr. Fussy in the book series and also in the second series) in a duplex-styled house. His catchphrases: "Shazam!" and "That's what I'm talkin' about!" and in the official site, "Messy, not dressy".

Mr. Quiet is the 29th book in the Mr. Men series by Roger Hargreaves. Mr. Quiet lives in Loudland, where everybody and everything is too loud for him. Loudland would be suitable for Mr. Noisy, but not for Mr. Quiet. Mr. Quiet is scared. Whenever he tries to go shopping, he can only whisper what he wants, which results in the grocer, the milkman, the baker, and the butcher to shout "CAN'T HEAR YOU! NEXT PLEASE!" One day Mr. Quiet gets a letter from Mr. Happy to stay in Happyland, where Mr. Quiet gets a job in a library, where the rule is to always be quiet. Mr. Quiet is so happy he laughs out loud.

In the 2008 TV series, The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Quiet is normal sized, instead of small like in the books, his colour has been changed from light brown to light blue, and two of his hairs are gone, He also lives next door to Mr. Noisy in a small shack-like house with a zen garden. His voice is barely audible, which can cause confusion with some of the other characters. In some situations where other characters he is with are debating, only he is aware of the dangers around them, even if he is subject to dangerous situations himself. He has a taste for Asian things, such as Chinese vases (seen in "Music") and a Zen garden (seen in "Gardens"), perhaps an allusion to the stereotype "quiet Asian". In the US and UK Versions, he is voiced by Aaron Albertus and Simon Greenall respectively. Mr. Quiet appears under the titles Monsieur Silence (French), Don Silencioso (Spanish), Don Calladito (Mexico), 조용씨 (Korean), 安靜先生 (Taiwan), Ο Κύριος Ήσυχος (Greek), Unser Herr Leise (German) and Senhor Silêncio (Portuguese).

Mr. Rude is the 45th book in the Mr. Men series by Roger Hargreaves and the second one created by Adam Hargreaves. Mr. Rude has a French accent (alluding to the stereotype that the French are rude people) and, as his name suggests, is rude to everyone. He insults a man with a big nose and an overweight woman. To the overweight woman he says "Fatty!, you're supposed to eat the things in the fridge, not eat the fridge as well!" Mr. Rude is published as Monsieur Mal-Elevé in French, Κύριος Αγενής in Greek and Senhor Rude in Portuguese.

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Rude kept his red colour, dark red nose, French accent, and shape, but he doesn't wear a hat (only in some episodes, which is rare.), wears brown shoes and has three hairs on his head. His catchphrase is, "I'll give you..." followed by an episode of flatulence that can be heard anywhere in Dillydale; after this, a Mr. Man or a Little Miss will shout "Mr. Rude!" (among the most common Mr. Men and Little Misses that do this are Mr. Grumpy, Mr. Bump, Mr. Tickle, Mr. Small, Mr. Happy, Little Miss Scary, and Little Miss Helpful; as is the case of Series 1).

He is in such a rush he has a terrible breakfast (toast not toasted, water cold), only brushes one tooth, and runs out of the house to go nowhere. He sees an ad for a vacation in a magazine but can't go away because he has no money, so he wants a job to make money. Being a bus driver isn't good, because he doesn't stop at any of the stops, being a waiter isn't good because he'd whisk away the food as soon as he brought it. The job he finds is as a postman delivering express letters, the best job for the fastest thing on two feet. He saves enough money and goes on vacation.

Mr. Rush appears under the titles Monsieur Pressé (French), Don Prisas (Spanish), Ο Κύριος Βιαστικός (Greek), 匆忙先生 (Taiwan), 서둘러씨 (Korean), Unser Herr Eilig (German).

He eats very enormous meals, and talks to Walter the Worm about getting a job. He then meets Mr. Robinson, who tries to get him a job. They try putting mustard in mustard jars, and they try putting matches into matchboxes. Neither job goes well. It's decided the best job for somebody so small is writing children's books. Mr. Robinson introduces Mr. Small to a friend who writes children's books (referring to Roger Hargreaves), and writes a book all about himself. This Mr. Men book breaks the fourth wall.

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Small is considerably larger (about twice the size of a slice of bread) and is an orange color. He also wears a tall black top hat (similar to Abraham Lincoln's) instead of a blue bowler, is a somewhat egg shape and wears a pair of white sneakers.

In the 2008 TV series, The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Strong's shape changed from a square to a triangle, however he kept his red color. He also wears a weight belt with a yellow buckle instead of his hat. He often says, "Yo" at the beginning of his sentences and he says "Aw, pickles!" when something goes wrong, which it often does due to his strength; and "Good thing I came along". Mr. Strong speaks with a New York accent. In the US and UK Versions, he is voiced by Phil Lollar and Simon Greenall.

Mr. Strong appears under the titles Monsieur Costaud (French), Don Forzudo (Spanish), Unser Herr Stark (German), Meneertje Sterk (Dutch), Ο Κύριος Δυνατός (Greek), 強壯先生 (Taiwan), 힘세씨 (Korean), Fætter Stærk (Danish), Gubben Stark (Swedish) and Senhor Forte (Portuguese).

Mr. Stubborn
Portrayed by Godfrey (U.S.)
Lewis MacLeod (UK)

Mr. Stubborn is a new Mr. Man created for The Mr. Men Show. He is purple and resembles Mr. Grumble, with a triangular yellow nose, and two hairs. He often assumes others are wrong, even when it is obvious that he is wrong. If possible, he misuses items and after they break, he thinks that they are cheap ("This website is CHEAP!" or "That door is CHEAP!"). In the French version, he is called Monsieur Têtu and, in the Portuguese version, he is called Senhor Teimoso. He is voiced by Godfrey (US) and Lewis MacLeod (UK).

Little Miss Stubborn is his book counterpart.

Mr. Tall is the 31st book in the Mr. Men series by Roger Hargreaves. Mr. Tall hates his oversized legs as they have too much muscle.

Mr. Tall decides his long legs are great for sprinting, and while Mr. Tall made it home quickly, Mr. Small took a year to get home.

Mr. Tickle is the 1st book in the Mr. Men series by Roger Hargreaves.

Like all Mr. Men, Mr. Tickle has a simplistic look. He is orange with long arms and a small blue hat.

In 2001, for the 30th anniversary of the Mr. Men, Mr. Tickle's book was released as a collector's edition hardback. It included a foreword from Adam Hargreaves.

Mr. Tickle's story begins with him in bed and making himself breakfast without getting up because of his "extraordinarily long arms". He then decides that it is a tickling sort of day and so goes around town tickling people – a teacher, a policeman, a greengrocer, a station guard, a doctor, a butcher and a postman. The book ends with a warning that Mr. Tickle could be lurking around your doorway, waiting to tickle you.

Mr. Tickle appears under the titles Monsieur Chatouille (French), Don Cosquillas (Spanish), Mr. Goglais (Welsh), Unser Herr Killekille (German), Meneertje Kietel (Dutch), Ο Κύριος Γαργαλίτσας (Greek), 搔癢先生 (Taiwan), 간지럼씨 (Korean), Fætter Kilderik (Danish), Gubben Killekill (Swedish), מר דגדוג (Hebrew), Mr. Csiki (Hungarian) and Senhor Cócegas (Portuguese).

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Tickle remains relatively the same in looks, though his hat has a stripe and his arms are normally sized, but can stretch out when needed. However, he tickles other Mr. Men and Little Misses (due to the obvious absence of humans in Dillydale). As far as character traits goes, he is still determined to tickle everyone he interacts with, but instead of doing it for mischief he does it to make people happy and will stop when nobody wants him to tickle them, save for when the opportunity knocks with Mr. Grumpy, who appears to be his favourite target. He also gets his own catchphrase, "I think somebody needs a tickle!" In the US and UK Versions, he is voiced by Jeff Stewart and Rob Rackstraw.

Mr. Tickle also featured in some of the other books, such as Little Miss Magic. In her story, she reduces his arms to normal length so he can no longer be annoying and tickle anyone. She eventually gives him his arms back when he begs for forgiveness and promises to reduce his actions to one tickle a day. However, he gets his revenge as soon as he is out of the room with his long arms and uses his one tickle for the day on her.

Mr. Topsy-Turvy is the 9th of the Mr. Men series by Roger Hargreaves. Mr. Topsy-Turvy does everything the wrong way. One day he comes to the town where the reader lives. He rents a room in a hotel, speaking to the hotel manager the wrong way, "Afternoon good, I'd room a like." The next day, he confuses the taxi driver with his backwards speaking, causing an accident, buying a pair of socks and putting them on his hands, then he disappears, but everything is still topsy-turvy. Everybody still speaks topsy-turvy, and the reader is asked to say something topsy-turvy.

Mr. Topsy-Turvy originated from a competition run by Roger Hargreaves to find a new Mr Men character and was an idea by Marc Penfold who created Mr Upside Down and a story in which the character lived in a backwards world. The idea did not win the competition but Roger Hargreaves liked the idea so much he wrote to Marc Penfold saying he would use the idea and thus Mr. Topsy-Turvy was born.

Mr. Topsy-Turvy appears under the titles Monsieur A L'Envers (French), Don Alreves (Spanish), Unser Herr Kuddelmuddel (German), 顛倒先生 (Taiwan), 거꿀씨 (Korean), Mr. Popeth o chwith (Welsh), Meneer Opsekop/Meneertje Andersom (Dutch), Ο Κύριος Ανάποδος (Greek), Fætter Omvendt (Danish).
