Mr. Men Wiki

Dance is the thirteenth episode (first part of the seventh episode) of Season 1 of The Mr. Men Show.


An unwilling Mr. Quiet performs a ballet with Mr. Strong; Mr. Grumpy's solitude is interrupted by tenacious tappers; Mr. Nosy shows off his dance moves.


  • Mr. Strong and Mr. Quiet's Plot: Mr. Strong and Mr. Quiet (who is filling in for Miss Calamity after she broke her leg before the show) are performing a ballet act and Mr. Quiet is having a hard time due to Mr. Strong's immense strength tossing him left and right.
  • Mr. Grumpy's Plot: Mr. Grumpy is trying to create an autobiography book about himself, but since his ceiling is the floor of Mr. Noisy's Dance Studio, the dancing is making it hard for him to write his book.
  • Musical number: "The Beat is Taking Over" by Mr. Messy.
  • Mr. Nervous's Plot: Mr. Nervous imagines that he's in a jungle being attacked by lions and gorillas. It's really shown he's at the skating ring with Miss Scary, Miss Naughty, Miss Chatterbox, and Mr. Small saying to him to move it or lose it and Mr. Nervous runs away off screen. Miss Scary says "Next time, we're bringing Mr. Tickle!".
  • Mr. Scatterbrain's Plot (US version only): Mr. Scatterbrain puts on a Western hoedown and is giving some interesting calls to the dancers.
  • Mr. Happy, Miss Chatterbox, Mr. Messy and Mr. Rude's Plot: Mr. Happy, Little Miss Chatterbox, Mr. Messy and Mr. Rude are in an American Idol-like contest called "Dance, Dance, Dance". The problem is that Mr. Rude keeps giving the contestants a 0 point score.

  • This episode was sequalized into Dance Dance Dance in the second season.

Dub edits[]

  • The segment where Mr. Scatterbrain puts on a Western hoedown is removed due to hoedowns being an American custom.
  • The Beat is Taking Over has several:
    • The remixed clips of Mr. Messy in the middle of the song aren't dubbed over.
    • "Spunky" is changed to "funky" and "kinda funky" is changed to "kinda clunky".
