The Mr. Men Show[]

Helpful transparent 2

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Little Miss Helpful had a makeover. She kept her personality, colour and shape, but now she has pigtails instead of mini-buns, has green bows on her newly orange hair, a light pink nose, wears a green fanny pack (bumbag in the UK version) and her shoes have been changed (they look similar to Miss Chatterbox's sneakers, only they are green and white). Little Miss Helpful speaks with a Southern accent.

Like her book counterpart, she tries to help others, but ends up helping nobody, doing more harm than good. Her catchphrase is "Just trying to be helpful!" The only characters who believe that Miss Helpful is truly helpful are both Mr. Lazy and Mr. Scatterbrain.

In the US version, she is voiced by Katie Leigh in both seasons. In the UK version, she is voiced by Jo Wyatt in season 1 and Emma Tate in Season 2. She is first seen in the episode, Physical.
