The development of the series began as a series of {{Ad Bumper}}s for ABC's Saturday morning lineup in 1993, possibly, the reason he's called Mr. Bumpy is because he was originally used as a character for bumpers. The series lasted for two seasons, and concluded with a 90 minute long Christmas Special. The format of a usual episode included two cartoons and a "Karaoke Cafe" segment where the characters sung a song about the episodes' lesson.

* ReluctantMonster: Mr. Bumpy hears about a monster under the bed that is freaking his boy out, and resolves to deal with it. After an investigation, Squishington deduces that the monster is in fact Mr. Bumpy, and his late-night, hard-partying ways are scaring the boy awake. Mr. Bumpy is upset by this, since he loves his boy, since he's the primary source of the cool stuff he has and the dirty socks he eats.

* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: In Farewell 2 Arms, Molly's arm gets accidentally ripped off and Bumpy gives her a spare ape arm as a replacement to try and cheer her up. She then replaces her other arm with a hair dryer from the Cuties, her legs with Destructo's, and her torso with a tin can, getting deeper and deeper into a power trip until she ends up replacing her own head and creating an entirely new monster.
