Mr. Men Wiki

Chores is a Season 1 episode of The Mr. Men Show.


Mr. Per(s)nickety's refrigerator gives him the cold shoulder; Mr. Happy and Mr. Grumpy share lawn-mowing techniques; and Mr. Bump gets down and dirty cleaning.


  • Mr. Fussy, Mr. Tickle and Miss Calamity's Plot: Mr. Fussy finds some blue cheese that has turned green and mo(u)ldy in his fridge causing havoc to his home. He gets Miss Calamity and Mr. Tickle to remove it. It can't get sucked into Miss Calamity's vacuum cleaner and it causes a mess to Mr. Fussy's walls. (It can be assumed the blue cheese was a forceful trick by Miss Scary)
  • Mr. Grumpy, Mr. Happy and Miss Daredevil's Plot: Mr. Grumpy is having trouble mowing his lawn with a mowing machine as Mr. Happy uses a push mower for his lawn. Miss Daredevil burns up Mr. Grumpy's lawn with her rocket ship.
  • Miss Whoops and Mr. Bump's Plot: Miss Whoops helps Mr. Bump clean his gutters.
  • Mr. Messy's Plot: Mr. Messy cleans his windows of his pizza parlour with pizza.
  • Mr. Lazy's Plot (Only in the US): Mr. Lazy is too lazy to clean his dirty dishes. So, he decides to go through a car wash with his pet slug Sluggy. When he goes through it, he decides to go again, because he sees there's still some egg on some plates, so he goes back in.

  2. When the dust clears, the face on the bust is gone!
  3. The bust sneezes the feathers of the duster onto Mr. Quiet's face!
