Or so I suppose.

The Mr Men were the creation of Roger Hargreaves who came up with the Mr Tickle character when his young son Adam asked what a tickle looked like.

Now decades later there are more than 40 Mr Men characters and 30 Little Misses.

Little Miss Helpful always gave me the collywobblies. I'm not convinced that my children ever found the Mr. Men to be very interesting, either.

I was vastly amused to find on the webthisdevelopment, the Four Mr. Men of the Apocalypse!

Oh, you didn't know? In an interview, Mike Harris claimed that his favourite book was Mr. Silly.
