YMMV / Mr. Men

  • Accidental Innuendo/Unfortunate Names: Mr. Happy, in hindsight. While Mr. Men predated the Robin Williams skit by 8 years, and no one saw the Popcultural Osmosis coming, Mr. Happy became Unusual Euphemism and a common nickname for a man's junk in the US.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: It's popular among some to psychoanalyse the characters and conclude that Mr. Bump is a masochist, Mr. Strong is a Nietzsche Wannabe, Mr. Tickle has a tickling fetish, Mr. Happy is a Stepford Smiler (though only in The Mr. Men Show), etc.
  • Bizarro Episode: Mr. Snow. He isn't defined by any character trait, and he never appears in any of the other characters' stories, nor do any of them appear in his.
  • Ear Worm: The theme for the 1975 series will likely never leave your head.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Someone behaving too grumpy, too chatty, too nosy, etc? Stalk them around wherever they go to humiliate and punish them anytime they behave bad. That'll get them to change their ways.
  • Uncanny Valley: The Giant in the Animated Adaptation of Mr. Greedy's story.
  • Unexpected Character: Cybermats in Dr. Twelfth, which factor into The Reveal.
  • The Woobie: Mr. Bump and Little Miss Whoops are always clumsy and accidentally hurting themselves, Mr. Forgetful forgets everything and anything, Mr. Muddle is always mixed up about everything, Mr. Clumsy breaks stuff simply by touching it and is always tripping up, Mr. Quiet is unable to raise his voice very much resulting in people not being able to hear him, Little Miss Shy is shy to the point where she spends most of the day in her own house, Mr. Jelly is scared of his own shadow, Little Miss Late is late for everything and often gets yelled at even when she doesn't mean to be late, Mr. Clever is only clever when it comes to intellectual areas and is stupid when it comes to emotional areas and Mr. Small and Miss Tiny have problems that are caused by their height.
    • Mr. Small in "Little Miss Trouble".
    • Mr. Good is also one in his own story due to having his generous nature spat in his face by the residents of Badland. Fortunately he manages to leave by the end of the book.
    • Mr. Tickle can come off as one in the New Library "Mr. Tickle In A Tangle." His extraordinary long arms prove to be nothing but a nuisance due to getting them tangled in the stair banisters and the revolving door at a hotel where he was meant to meet up with Mr. Uppity for lunch, getting stepped on by a bus conducter and getting tangled up by Little Miss Naughty.
