Story

Miss Scary in the books

Little Miss Scary enjoys scaring people more than anything. She lives on the top of a mountain in a house called Spooky Cottage, when it was dark she will always creep into the valley, wait quietly and scare people with a loud "BOO!" or with some scary equipment. One day Mr. Noisy visits Mr. Jelly, who was scared because Little Miss Scary kept jumping on him and shouted "BOO!" at him, so Mr. Noisy makes an idea, he and Mr. Jelly uses the same method Little Miss Scary uses to scare others, and she was now scared and ran to her house. Mr. Jelly disappears, so Mr. Noisy goes back to his house to have a look under Mr. Jelly's bed.

The Mr. Men Show

Scary transparent.png

In The Mr. Men Show, Little Miss Scary kept her looks except one of her spikes is gone, her remaining spikes are a bit longer, and she is a darker shade of red. She is also a normal height instead of small like in the books. She loves fear and has her own television show, "Miss Scary's Late Night Scare Fest." She often dislikes other people who are scary like her because she thinks being scary is her job. She lives next to Mr. Nervous, her favorite target to scare, in a gloomy manor surrounded by prepetual storm clouds. She has a collection of a variety of masks (one of them being a Mr. Grumpy mask which spooked some aliens in Picnic), which she uses to scare the other Mr. Men and Little Misses, though she can get scared by them as well. When she scares others with her mask, she often gives a terrifying screech. She has a scary snore, according to Mr. Messy, as seen in Sleep. She loves it when Little Miss Magic teleports. Although she often snorts when she laughs, her scratchy, witch-like voice was provided by Susan Balboni in North American dubbed airing, while the Southeast English accent was provided by Jo Wyatt in the UK version, being replaced by Alex Kelly in the second season. She is first seen in Physical.
