Mr. Small
Voiced by: Mr. Nosy: Danny Katiana (US), Steve Kynman (UK), Mr. Small: Phil Lollar (US), Keith Wickham (UK)

Mr. Funny

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/funny_7.png

  • Catchphrase: "Sweet Henrietta!" and "How revolting!"

  • The Chew Toy: Whenever his Neat Freak status is taken advantage of, it's meant to make us laugh.

  • Ink-Suit Actor: He somewhat resembles his American voice actor, with the mustache and bowtie.
  • Misplaced Retribution: Frequently gets kicked out of places for others' misbehavior.

  • Same Character, but Different: Both Mr. Persnickety and Fussy are the same character, but the show never explained why he changed his appearance.

  • Big Ol' Unibrow: Type I.

  • Surrounded by Idiots: He definitely believes this.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He likes liverwurst sandwiches.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: He used to be brown in the original books, but is light blue in the show.

    Mr. Quiet: Yes, I do.

Mr. Tall

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mr_tall.jpg

  • French Jerk: On both sides of the Atlantic, no less.
  • Gasshole: He tends to fart a lot.

  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: "I'll give you (x)."
  • Mythology Gag: In a few episodes in Season 2, he had a top hat, similar to what he wore in the books.
  • Phrase Catcher: "MR. RUDE!" In the first season, it was said by a crowd of Mr. Men and Little Misses, but in Season 2, a random Mr. Men or Little Miss would say it in the middle of a random activity as a sort of Cutaway Gag.

  • Put on a Bus: She was removed in Season 2, aside a statue cameo.
