     Mr. Men 

Mr. Tickle

Mr Tickle is the first of the Mr Men stories written. He uses his extraordinarily long arms to tickle anyone he can get his hands on: the postman, the doctor, the butcher and all of the other Mr Men and Little Miss! His arms can come in useful though, they can get kites that are stuck in trees and they can answer the phone when he is in the bath!

But Mr Tickle always does as his name implies, he tickles people through windows, through letterboxes, but once when he heard the postman, Mr Stamp, coming and he sent one of his arms down the stairs and got it stuck in the banisters!

Mr Tickle likes nothing more than to tickle anyone who happens to walk by! His really long arms have all sorts of uses - he can even make his breakfast in the kitchen while lying in his bed!

  • Friendly Tickle Torture: Tickling people is the whole of Mr. Tickle's character.
  • Nice Guy: Once you look past his habit of tickling, he comes off as a friendly guy.

Mr. Greedy

Mr Greedy is truly the greediest person in the whole of Misterland (well maybe not the greediest, there is someone else who could be greedier!). He can eat his way through as much food you or I could eat in a week in an hour! Mr Greedy's problem was that the more he ate the fatter he became. Then the fatter he became the more hungry he became and the more hungry he became the more he ate! Mr Greedy once has 9 slices of toast and a whole packet of cornflakes for his breakfast one day! However he learnt his lesson when he met a giant and ate all of his giant-sized dinner! He had a stomach ache after that!

Mr. Happy

Mr Happy is always happy. He always has a large grin on his face and is always trying to cheer up everyone who is feeling down. He lives in a house at the foot of a mountain next to a lake. In Happyland everyone and everything is happy, even the flowers smile! He is so happy that he even managed to find Mr Grumble a hobby that he actually liked (even though that hobby was grumbling!)

Mr. Sneeze

Mr Sneeze comes from Coldland, near the North Pole. The only problem with Coldland is that everyone always has a cold. All of the people and the elephants in Coldland all have red noses.

Whenever Mr Sneeze gets up, you guessed it he sneezes, and then goes downstairs, sneezes, eat his breakfast, sneezes...etc. One day Mr Sneeze decided to leave Coldland and find a cure for all his sneezing.

Mr Sneeze packed all the things he needed (mainly hankerchiefs) and set off until he found a wizard and found he wasn't in Coldland at all. What do you think happened next?

Mr. Bump

Mr Bump is always having accidents, bumping into things and landing in holes. Little accidents and big accidents. Mr Bump was once carrying a ladder to fix his chimney pot, but smashed his living room window when he was turning round. When he turned to see what had happened, SMASH! went the kitchen window went as well.

So you see, this happens quite a lot. When he tried to get a job, everything he did, he always had accidents and got the sack from every job, however he now works for Mr Barley in his orchard as an apple picker. He just walks around and soon enough he bumps into a tree and an apple falls down!

Mr. Snow

Mr Snow is made totally from snow. When it snowed 2 days before Christmas, all the kids were very excited because it had never ever snowed so much in one day!

It then became a cause for concern as Father Christmas found there was too much snow to deliver the presents to the children. He had to find someone to help him.

Then he then saw a snowman that the children had built. Santa worked his magic and brought the snowman to life! and Mr Snow was born!
  • Snowlems: Was brought to life by Santa Claus to help him deliver toys.

Mr. Messy

Mr Messy is the messiest person in the world. You can always tell when he has been somewhere because there is always a trail of fingerprints wherever he has been. Messy by name, messy by nature! His house was not much better, there were broken windows and loose roof tiles. On one of his walks through the woods near his house, he found a beautiful house where he met Mr Tidy and Mr Neat, who were cleaning a house. They then saw Mr Messy and proceeded to clean his house for him, which he was not happy about!
  • Everyone Has Standards: Despite the fact that he loves being messy(hence his name), even he looked disgusted when a slime monster covered him in slime in Adventure With Monsters.
  • Hates Baths: As befits his name, hates taking baths, and has to be forced into the bathtub in the final act of the book bearing his name. He jokes afterward that, now that he is no longer messy, he'll need to change his name.

Mr. Uppity

As he is probably the most stuck-up, richest, most rude Mr Man in the UK. so it follows that he is not very popular. Thankfully the goblins take a real interest in Mr Uppity, and use all of their magic powers to frighten him into changing.

Mr Uppity lives in the largest house in the whole of Misterland. He has the biggest garden and lives there all on his own. He is rude to everyone he comes across.

One Day when Mr Uppity was exploring his gardens, he met a little goblin who he told to hop off, but the goblin's magic turned Mr Uppity very small!Of course, Mr Uppity shouted and screamed at the goblin, but he didnt turn him back, so he followed the little creature to his own land and met the King of the goblins,
  • Cool Car: He owns a large and long limousine.
  • Friendless Background: Had no friends in Bigtown prior to meeting the Goblin, due to his rude behavior.

He found an old letter that he meant to post three weeks ago, and went to buy a stamp at the post office for it. By the time he got there, he had forgotten what he needed, but Mrs Parcel reminded him that he needed a stamp!

One day, when Mr Lazy was taking a nap outside in a chair, he was woken up suddenly by the sound of someone shouting "WAKEUPWAKEUP!". That person was in fact two people, Mr Busy and Mr Bustle. These strange two men made sure that Mr Lazy got to work as there was wood to chop, floors to clean, coal to get, windows to polish, and a lot more things. Mr Lazy had never done this much work in his life, but luckily for him, the two visitors only turned out to be a big dream!

Mr. Funny

Mr Funny is the funniest person in the whole of Happyland, quite the funniest you have ever seen. To start with, Mr Funny lives in a teapot that has two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen and a living room. What is even funnier is the fact that his car was not in fact a car, but a shoe with wheels!

All the animals and flowers that saw Mr Funny in his show-car laughed so hard, they laughed themselves in two, laughed their tails off or laughed themselves out of the ground.

You would think that Mr Mean is poor, but in fact he has lots of money but never spends any of it or gives it to anyone. He even gave his brother a piece of coal for Christmas so that he didn't have to spend any money. One day, an old wizard came and taught him his lesson, by turning all his money into potatoes and whenever he was mean turned different parts of him into different vegetables! However, Mr Mean was a changed man, and he became so kind that the following year he gave his brother a nicer, better present...two pieces of coal!

Mr. Chatterbox
Mr Chatterbox can go on forever. He simply wouldn't stop talking! He would talk to anybody and everybody about anything and everything. One day he was talking to Mr Stamp the postman for so long, that he was late delivering everyone else's letters.

Mr Muddle even walks back to front! On a day out, Mr Muddle met George the fisherman, who really confused Mr Muddle when he simply asked him to help him push his boat out to sea. George told Mr Muddle the exact opposite of what he really wanted him to do, and Mr Muddle did exactly the right thing! George then told everyone in Seatown how to deal with Mr Muddle. The next day he met Mr Brick, the town builder, who did exactly the same thing when he asked him to hold his coat (so Mr Muddle held his ladder), and so did Mrs Scrub and Mr Black.

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.
