Comic Book / The Mr. Men Show

Go To

Sometime after the Mr. Men Show ended in 2009, VIZMedia published a few graphic novels based on the television series.

Unlike the show where the stories focus on a topic, the novels focus on stories either about or have an appearance by the character, though they are written similar in the style of the show. Each of the books are done by various writers and illustrators, but the most recognized writers is Michael Daedalus Kenny, who wrote "Up and Down" from the second season.

The comic series ran throughout 2012, with the last comic being released on New Year's Day 2013.

The books that came out are:

  • Mr. Bump: Lights, Camera, Bump!
  • Mr. Strong: Good Thing I Came Along!
  • Little Miss Sunshine: Here Comes the Sun!
  • Little Miss Daredevil: The Incredible Race!

Tropes:

  • A Day in the Limelight: Each of the novels focus on one character (or a story that features the character).
  • Arbitrary Skepticism:
    • Mr. Bump in his book doesn't believe in pipe monsters, even though he encountered strange things before. This bites him back afterwards.
    • Mr. Fussy in the same book states ghosts do not exist. Keep in mind that he resides in a world where magic and aliens also exist. Like, Mr. Bump, this does bite him in the back at the end of the story.
  • Bedsheet Ghost: Miss Naughty dressed up as one in Mr. Strong's comic to scare Mr. Nervous while he was sleeping.

  • The Big Race: "The Incredible Race" deals with the Mr. Men and Little Misses participating a big race.
  • Birthday Episode: Mr. Quiet celebrates his birthday in "Here Comes the Sun", but Miss Sunshine wants to give him a big party, when he only wanted to be alone.
  • The Bus Came Back: After being absent from the second season, Miss Calamity came back in both Miss Sunshine's and Mr. Strong's books.
  • Darker and Edgier: The comics have some rather dark moments such as Mr. Bump getting set on fire on the Survivor / Endurance parody.
  • Demoted to Extra: Mr. Tickle of all characters. In fact, he has less lines than Mr. Tall!
  • Digital Destruction: Some digital copies of Miss Daredevil's comic is pale compare to the physical one.
  • Depending on the Artist: Depending who illustrates the books, the character would be on model like the show, or would often be Off-Model.

  • Performance Anxiety: Mr. Nervous had this problem when trying to perform in the talent show. Miss Sunshine does help him out when singing "Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star".
  • Series Continuity Error: Mr. Nervous in "Bonus Bump" states that Mr. Bump is the worst driver, even though the show displays Mr. Bump driving before. Though this may've took place before.
  • Talent Contest: The final story in "Here Comes the Sun" has Miss Sunshine, Mr. Rude and Mr. Fussy running a talent show. But it never stated who won.
  • Trapped in TV Land: The majority of Mr. Bump's book after he smashed the remote on his television, which caused a portal to the television world.
  • Use Your Head: Mr. Strong uses the top of his head in "The Wild, Wild West" when the train was heading towards the broken bridge.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: Happens with Miss Whoops...on Mr. Bump, no less.
  • What a Piece of Junk: Mr. Messy in Miss Sunshine's book gave her a free bus, but it's all broken and sloppy looking. Miss Sunshine thankfully calls Mr. Strong to repair it, and cleans the rest of it herself.
