Little Miss Bossy is so bossy, she told Mr. Nosey to mind his own business, Mr. Noisy to shut up, and Mr. Happy to take his smile off his 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 has appeared in the Mr. Men Show in Season 2. She kept her blue color and circle body. Her hat is pointy on the bottom sides and it floats, her flower and the head is attached to the side of her hat, and has eyelashes. The stripe on her hat is light green. She runs her own Arts & Crafts Camp in "Art & Crafts" (only in US version). Miss Bossy's accent in the UK is Yorkshire, and Southern-American in the U.S. She is voiced by Sophie Roberts (Cheryl Chase) (US) and Alex Kelly (UK).
- Even though it's stated that Little Miss Bossy became less bossy at the end of her story, later appearances proved otherwise such as in Little Miss Shy And The Fairy Godmother where she yells at Little Miss Shy to speak up when she comes to the shoe shop to buy some shoes before she along with Little Miss Naughty mock her for blushing and then later when Little Miss Splendid and Mr. Happy are looking for Little Miss Shy so they can find out who it was that was wearing the glass ballroom slippers they suggest trying out Little Miss Shy so they can watch her go pink again (even though this is a nitpick rant).
- Her first cameo appearance is in the episode, Driving.
- She has appeared in a big car in Airports.
- Her first speaking appearance is Arts & Crafts.
- She bossed Mr. Strong around in Garages.
- So far, she lives next door to Little Miss Chatterbox and Mr. Rude.
- She believes that Mr. Rude is acting rude and has bad manners in Next Door.
- Little Miss Bossy is one miss who is seen with Mr. Messy (Post Office).
- She has been seen with all the characters (except Mr. Noisy, Miss Helpful, Mr. Bounce, Miss Calamity, Mr. Lazy, Miss Naughty, Mr. Quiet, Mr. Nosey, Mr. Small, Miss Whoops, Mr. Stubborn, Miss Daredevil, Mr. Funny, Miss Giggles, Miss Curious, Miss Magic and Mr. Tall who haven't been seen with her so far)
- Her voice actress in the American dub is Cheryl Chase (under the pseudonym Sophie Roberts), who previously voiced Angelica Pickles in Rugrats. Chase uses the same range and tone as Angelica's to voice Little Miss Bossy.
- She did talk to Miss Giggles on the phone in Garages.
- In The Great Alphabet Hunt, she had a Western accent.
- She is one of the many characters who doesn't care if Mr. Bump gets hurt.
- She did boss Mr. Bump around in Arts & Crafts, and when he got hurt she ignored it.

- She seems to have a soft spot for Mr. Messy and in Mr. Messy TV show, Shazam! that's good, he agrees to let Little Miss Bossy take over the show with him.
- She cried in That's Enough, Little Miss Bossy.
- The only one she didn't boss around was Miss Chatterbox (with the exception of Miss Chatterbox, give me your cell phone!)
- She is the third character to have eyelashes, the first was Little Miss Daredevil and the second was Little Miss Naughty.
- Her house resembles a boot camp.
- Her voice in the 1997 redub of Mr. Men and Little Miss was also similar to classic film actress Judy Garland.
