The Mr. Men Show: Robots

Weekdays 7.20am

The lovable Mr Men continue their fun-filled adventures on Milkshake! With a blend of fastpaced physical humour and verbal wit, the Mr Men cartoons have been a favourite among children for a number of years. ‘The Mr. Men Show’ brings the colourful animated sketch show to a new generation of children aged between four and seven.

This series sees the arrival of new characters Little Miss Giggles and Little Miss Magic, while old favourites like Mr Tall, Mr Funny, Mr Curious and Little Miss Bossy also make an appearance. All the characters, old and new, remain true to the essence of Roger Hargreaves’s original creations. The madcap action is narrated by distinguished English actor Simon Callow.

In Monday’s show, ‘Robots’, Mr Grumpy’s mechanical maid develops a mind of its own, Miss Whoops accidentally gives Miss Scary’s robot the wrong brain and Mr Happy and Miss Sunshine introduce a special new character on their show.

Tuesday’s show is ‘Shoes’. Mr Bump tries on a variety of footwear at Mr Small’s shop, Mr Stubborn helps Mr Messy track down a missing trainer and Mr Fussy directs the Dillydale version of Cinderella.

Wednesday’s instalment, ‘Parties’, finds Mr Fussy all alone at Mr Messy’s party. Elsewhere, mayhem ensues when Mr Nervous delivers pizza to a fancy dress party and Mr Bump plays painful games at Miss Whoops’s get-together.

Thursday’s episode, ‘Game Shows’, sees Mr Grumpy, Mr Rude and Miss Chatterbox attempt to guess the contents of a secret box. Meanwhile, Messrs Fussy and Stubborn test their knowledge of music and Mr Bump and friends compete in a series of dangerous physical feats.

And on Friday’s show, ‘Garages’, Mr Fussy cleans out his garage, Mr Stubborn installs an innovative automatic door opener for Mr Grumpy and Mr Bump’s efforts to repair Mr Happy’s car prove somewhat uncomfortable.
