The Mr. Men Show Series Premiere

Weekdays at 7.20am

This week on Milkshake! sees the long-awaited return of the lovable Mr. Men. With a blend of fast-paced 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.

On Monday’s show, ‘Airports’, Mr Stubborn tries to park at the airport, Mr Bump gets trampled by travellers and Mr Fussy gets stuck at Mr Small and Mr Nosy’s security checkpoint.

Tuesday’s show is ‘Driving’. Mr Happy gives Miss Whoops a driving lesson, Mr Strong shows off his race car in a fast-paced music video and Mr Fussy and friends take a not-so-quiet drive in the country.

On Wednesday, in ‘Arts and Crafts’, Mr Fussy invites Mr Messy and Mr Strong to his art club and Miss Sunshine helps Miss Scary create a crafty creature. Meanwhile, painting with Mr Scatterbrain and Mr Tickle is a pain for Mr Grumpy.

Thursday’s episode, ‘Outer Space’, sees Mr Bump dodge asteroids as he fixes a satellite. Elsewhere, Mr Strong and crew investigate strange sounds on a faraway planet and Miss Scary announces that aliens are invading Dillydale.

And on Friday’s show, ‘Up and Down’, Mr Grumpy gets annoyed by people sitting above him at a game of Dillyball, Miss Magic helps Mr Rude in a restaurant kitchen and Mr Noisy tries to sell Miss Scary a vacuum cleaner.
