Little Miss Bossy first edition

The first edition of Little Miss Bossy

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[]

Miss Bossy in 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.


  • Her moral is not to be bossy towards others.
  • In The Great Alphabet Hunt, she had a West Country accent.
  • Her voice in the 1997 redub of Mr. Men and Little Miss was also similar to classic film actress Judy Garland.
  • According to the website, her favourite flowers are daisies. This makes sense as she has a daisy attached to her hat.
  • She had freckles in a few promotional illustrations.
  • According to a comic from the 1980s, it is revealed that Little Miss Bossy is a Leo. Meaning her birthday is somewhere between 22 July and 22 August.
  • In Little Miss Brave's story, it is revealed that she is afraid of thunderstorms.
  • Her 2008 design and Mr. Stubborn are the current images of the Deletion template.
