Little Miss Bossy is so bossy, she told Mr. Nosey (Mr. Chatterbox in the TV adaption) to mind his own business, Mr. Noisy to shut up, and Mr. Happy (Little Miss Sunshine in the TV adaption) to take his/her smile off his/her face, so Wilfred the Wizard gives her a pair of boots who have a mind of their own and don't listen to her because she is so bossy. After this, Little Miss Bossy learns her lesson and is never bossy again.
The Mr. Men Show
Little Miss Bossy appeared in the Mr. Men Show, debuting in Season 2. She kept her circle body and dark blue colour, but she also gained eyelashes. Her hat is pointy on the bottom sides and it floats, and the flower is now attached to the side of her hat. The stripe on her hat is light green instead of yellow. She lives in a military hut next door to Little Miss Chatterbox and Mr. Rude. She runs her own arts & crafts camp in "Arts & Crafts" (only in US version).
She is voiced by Sophie Roberts (Cheryl Chase) in the US version and Alex Kelly in the UK version. Chase uses the same range and tone she previously used for Angelica Pickles in Rugrats, and she speaks with a Yorkshire accent in the dub.
- In The Great Alphabet Hunt, she had a Western accent.
- Her voice in the 1997 redub of Men and Little Miss was also similar to classic film actress Judy Garland.
- According to the website, her favourite flowers are daisies.
- She had freckles in a few merchandise.
- In Little Miss Brave's story, it is revealed that she is afraid of thunderstorms.
