Collecting is the twenty-seventh episode (first part of the fourteenth episode) of Season 1 of The Mr. Men Show.


Mr. Scatterbrain's collection liven up the set of Good Morning Dillydale; Little Miss Calamity wins a precarious prize; and Mr. Nervous survives the perils of playtime!


  • Little Miss Calamity, Mr. Grumpy, Mr. Strong and Mr. Bounce's Plot: Little Miss Calamity gets some extremely breakable glass animals by Mr. Grumpy. Mr. Strong heard that she won them in a sweep stake. Then Mr. Bounce arrives and bounces on the animals and broke them. Mr. Grumpy comes back and said that she actually was 2nd place rather than 1st and at the end, she gets a collection of frogs.
  • Mr. Happy, Little Miss Sunshine, Mr. Lazy, Mr. Scatterbrain and Little Miss Naughty's Plot: At the Good Morning Dillydale Studio, Mr. Scatterbrain gets a collection of things but don't match. Little Miss Sunshine tells Mr. Happy if her stuff is a collection (Hair Ribbons, Shoes, Grass). Mr. Lazy has remote controls which make his life easier, then Mr. Scatterbrain gets a collection of monkeys. Little Miss Naughty plays a trick on us by putting whoopee cushions on the ground. Then Mr. Happy and Little Miss Sunshine sit down but Mr. Rude farts, actually it wasn't (it was Little Miss Naughty's whoopee cushions) so because Mr. Rude was in the audience and yells "For once, that was not ME!".
  • Little Miss Daredevil's Plot: Little Miss Daredevil shares her collection of jet planes with her friends Mr. Strong, Mr. Messy, and Mr. Bounce. Together, the 4 fly high and make sky art. Little Miss Daredevil ends the segment encouraging the audience to share their collections with others. (Not in the UK)
  • Little Miss Helpful, Mr. Persnickety and Mr. Messy's Plot: Little Miss Helpful and her friends make up a collection club and she tells them what they have. Mr. Persnickety has a collection of vacuum cleaners and Mr. Messy has a collection of pizza crusts. Mr. Messy brings his collection of socks and collection of dirt. Mr. Persnickety is not amused, telling Mr. Messy that rotten food belongs in the rubbish. As Mr. Messy shows his collection of dirt, Mr. Persnickety sucks Mr. Messy's collections with one of his vacuum cleaners, the Turbo Tornado. It explodes at the end.
  • Mr. Nervous' Plot: Mr. Nervous thinks he's in the land of giant objects but really he's looking at Little Miss Chatterbox's collection.


  • Mr. Rude: For once... That was not me!
