Mr Men fans part 2
First Name : leanne Website/email : firstname.lastname@example.org Comment : hi,i have a mr christmas that was designed for mcdonalds around 5 years ago by the mr men company, ive never taken it out of it wrapper is it worth keeping hold of or is it just taking up space?
Hi! Love your Collectables page! Didn't know these were rare. These books are so funny. Everybody's a Roundy or a Squary ends with: Roundies want to get to know squaries. Squaries don't want to know. One of the pages in I'm a Roundy, You're a Squary reads: Roundies like to sing. Squaries can't stand Roundies singing.
Love b. -x-
Thanks for this..
Check out this super Mr Men website....Richard must of spent loads of money in Ebay........love the rare stuff....Peter
April 2005 an interesting email I recieved......
Hi there, I thought that I would drop you a line as from your website you would appear to be quite an authority on everything Mr Men. I used to be a big fan and, thanks to my daughter, have recently rediscovered why I loved them so much. I enjoyed them so much that I created one as part of my GCSE project back in 1988. I called him Mr Nobody.
Now someone once told me that they had seen a book called Mr Nobody but I thought that I knew them all and "knew" that there wasn't such a Mr Man. This evening I thought that I would have another look (I have looked before) and I finally found a reference on your site - not only a reference, but pages from the book. Worst of all, it was written three years before I "created" him... The wierdest thing is that both stories had similar ideas, although to be honest I still prefer my story. I often thought about writing to Roger to tell him my story but now I am glad that I didn't - it was the year that he died and I would have hated to send the story to his family at that time.
I have been looking for the story boards for some time but I still have the clay-mation film that I made (in video-8 I think the format is). I recently, last year, had it transferred onto VHS so that I could finally watch it. Not quite as good as I imagined it would be but it certainly brought back memories...
My story revolved around the concept that kids always blamed Mr Nobody when things were broken or went wrong. Mr Nobody was just a pair of eyes - I didn't think of Roger's idea of making him transparent although I really like that. My Mr Nobody also went to a wizard but he explained that he was fed up of being blamed for everything. The wizard waved his wand and suddenly he became Mr Somebody (shock horror). Mr Somebody was dressed in top hat and tails with white gloves - very much a somebody. Mr Somebody them went around telling people when the kids were naughty. Needless to say he became very unpopular very quickly. As a result he returned to the wizard who turned him back to Mr Nobody. The punchline was along the lines of..."everything was back to normal...." and then on the back page "almost" - Mr Nobody now having a huge cheesy grin, like the Cheshire Cat.
Well, I suppose that my dreams of having my own story added to the collection are dead and buried (although I realise that Roger's Mr Nobody is no longer in print and not part of the "set" so there is theoretically still a chance...) Good look with Mr Excited - I like that idea, having my own hyperactive child!
On another note, I too used to have Mr Men Sportsday and at the Sea-side. Top website - keep it up! Malc Thanks Malc......what an amazing coinciendence!!.....
Mr Men news!
New!..16th Nov 2004........ Try out this website for old mr men books....thanks to a mr man fan emailing me....
4th Nov 2004....
Hi I have been lurking on your website (now a blog) for info on Mr. men for some time now. Anyway there is a new Little Miss book called Little Miss Jealous which is an Australian exclusive from Angus and Robertson booksellers here. Again, it was submitted by a reader competition and procceds goto Ronald MacDonald House for Children's Hospitals. She looks like Mr. Sneeze a bit and pink. However as she gets jealous she turns green (with envy). Cheers Richard ........................THANKS FOR THE INFO!

John Mouse stories! Whilst having a hunt around for John Mouse books to see how much they are worth,I found your site.I'm in my early thirties and teach in a primary school.I found my 4 books in the loft and decided to try them in my literacy class with 6 year olds.How they giggled!They love John Mouse on the farm.I can now tell them that Sophie and Amelia were Roger's daughters-didn't know that. Thanks-not many people seem to know them. Shame-they are fab
Thanks Jane for your thoughts..Peter

Hi Peter, I have managed to get hold of the Mr Stupid poster!!!
I have scanned it in bit by bit and stuck it together. Hope you enjoy reading this rare Mr Men Character Story. I think they should make him into a limited edition book like Mr Cheeky and Mr Christmas. I think Mr Nobody and Grandfather Clock should also be re-released in the standard size book format, they would sell a shed load!
Have fun, Mike.
Thanks Mike again.....its great you got the poster! Peter Gray!
May 11th 2004- Thanks to Mike N...has sent a great super rare poster.......the story seems to be about Mr Stupid ignoring the Mr Men to play on the line........trips over...train coming...Mr Strong stops train in time...Mr Stupid most likely changes his name...i.e Mr Sensible! Just a guess!!
A new Mr Men story is out now.....with a lovely glitter cover like the Little Miss Naughty and the good fairy this is
Mr Happy and the wizard with a very creepy book..the book is magic!!! I would of loved to see more Mr Men and Little Miss changed by magic...if only Little Miss Trouble had the book!

My 6 year old son Timmy (mad Mr Man Fan) is the reason I subscribe to this list. He has now put a Mr Men and Little Miss Website up which may should be of interest It includes sections on French and Welsh versions. Please have a look at:
Check it out......great french book pictures..Peter!
April 11th 2004-
I just wanted to drop a line to let you know that I love your site! As an American Roger hargreaves fan, we don't get all of the cool things you have access to over in the UK. The new books have not been released here and we don't know if they will be. I order all of my McDonald's toys from Ebay.
Recently, I found the whole collection of French Mr. Men Books on Amazon.com and ordered them all for over $80! Unfortunately, the seller backed out and told me they didn't actually have the titles. Imagine my supreme dissapointment!
I attached some roundy/squarey books I found on Ebay. I hope you enjoy it.--Mark
THANKS MARK....Wish I had those books myself! Peter
I've put this on another blog post..
26th March 2004
Dear Peter, Please find attached a Mr Men jigsaw cover which I'm sure you'll find interesting. You'll probably recognise the style as one of the jigsaws you're already familiar with. I hope this is useful.(Thank you!)
I recently bought the complete Mr Men from Play.com (£7.99) and relived some very happy memories and I'm sure you've done something very similar. Let's face it, Arthur Lowe will always be remembered as Captain Mainwaring, but his vocal skills as demonstrated here prove, if it wasn't obvious, that he was capable of much more - just check his array of voices in Mr Mean's story (I particularly like the croaky old man!) If I've a complaint about the series, it's that Mr Topsy-Turvy is portrayed as a twittering imbecile, rather than an eccentric who goes his own way, like Mr Muddle. It'd be churlish to say "Who's that pretending to be Mr Snow?", however, as it was such a top show.
I recall from a trip to the dentist in the late '80s that the Mr Men were used to advertised dental hygiene for children - "Look after your teeth", sort of thing. There were six characters used, but I can only recollect two: Mr Chatterbox being quiet for a change (he was brushing his teeth!); and Mr Impossible, having changed his shape to a vertical oval! I'm not kidding!?! Still it's his body and he's more than able after all! Stephen..Thanks Stephen for your insights...Peter!
These also new hard cover books Gossip with Little Miss Chatterbox and Student life with Mr Messy out now!

Here's a lovely comment from Mr Jelly-
Hi Peter, thanks for the kind words. I liked your site, there was lots of Mr Men information I didn't know, and I liked the pictures. It was nice to see some of Roger Hargreaves other creations name checked, I can vouch for John Mouse because I used to have a copy of John Mouse goes to work (he was very naughty, linking all the paper clips together, and leaving inky footprints all over the place!), I don't know where you could find a copy of that these days. I like the cartoons, you've got a very professional style and a good sense of humour. It reminded me a bit of Gary Larson's Far Side (especially the sliced bread). Mr Jelly (his user name!)
