The Mr. Men Show
In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Little Miss Helpful had a makeover. She kept her personality, color and shape, but now she has pigtails instead of mini-buns, has green bows on her newly reddish-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).
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 and UK Versions, she is voiced by Katie Leigh in the US version of both Season 1 and Season 2 and Jo Wyatt in season 1 in the UK version and Emma Tate in Season 2 in the UK version. She is first seen in the episode, Physical.
- She is shown to be quite good friends with Little Miss Tidy, in the episodes, Mr. Chatterbox Loses His Voice, Little Miss Tidy Loses a Friend and Mr. Tickle Saves The Day.
- Even though Little Miss Helpful is the seventh book in the Little Miss series, she is placed eighth in the Little Miss Library, between Little Miss Giggles and Little Miss Magic which were the fourteenth and eighth books in the Little Miss series respectively, though they are respectively placed seventh and ninth in the Little Miss Library.
The Mr. Men Show trivia
- Little Miss Helpful is seen twice without her fanny pack in the episode, Telephone "Sand & Surf". She is also seen without it as one of the heads that shouts Mr. Rude's name when he passed gas.
