Trivia

  • Some copies of Mr. Bump, Mr. Tickle, Mr. Nosey, Mr. Small, Mr. Bounce, Mr. Snow, Mr. Happy and Mr. Chatterbox started with instrumental versions of their theme songs on both sides, and ended with sing along karaoke instrumental versions of their theme songs on the second sides of the cassettes. Mr. Greedy never had a sing-along version of his theme song. It wasn't until 1994 that the Mr. Men cassette theme was included on later versions of them.
  • First editions of Mr. Bump's cassette depicted him with three bandages around his head and his middle, but later editions with the CYP branding on it removed the topmost bandage from his head.
  • Some versions of Little Miss Trouble's cassette came in yellow with red writing on it to match her colour palette.
  • Some versions of the Mr. Men cassettes were clear, such as Mr. Chatterbox and Mr. Snow for example.
  • Most cassettes were coloured to match the colours of the characters, i.e. blue for Mr. Grumpy, red for Mr. Noisy, Green for Mr. Clumsy, and yellow for Mr. Happy. However, some cassettes didn't match the colours of the characters, i.e. white for Mr. Grumble and Little Miss Tiny.
  • The Little Miss cassettes have missing numbers in the catalogue. LM7, LM9, LM10 and LM11. These missing characters that were considered for release on cassette format include Little Miss Chatterbox, Little Miss Twins, Little Miss Fun and Little Miss Brainy. Currently, no one knows why these characters went unnarrated for the cassette releases.
  • Early versions of Mr. Greedy's tape lack the sing along version of his theme song on side 2.
  • Early versions of Mr. Nosey's tape have the full version of his theme song on both sides of the tape.
