Mr. Bounce in the Mr. Men books

Mr. Bounce was very small and like a rubber ball; he couldn't keep himself on the ground. One day, he has enough with the bouncing, and visits Dr. Makeyouwell to receive a pair of heavy shoes. Now, he doesn't bounce as much anymore.

The Mr. Men Show

Mr. Bounce in the Mr. Men Show

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, he looks the same except he is bigger and his hat has a light pink stripe on it and floats. He has an Indian accent in the US version and a Belfast accent in the UK version. His bouncing about causes chaos for the other Mr. Men and Little Misses in Dillydale, especially when he's out in public. In the UK and US Versions, he is voiced by Sam Gold and Simon Greenall.


Mr. Men and Little Miss

  • In Mr. Men and Little Miss, his hat was red instead of pink.
  • In the original UK broadcast of Mr. Men and Little Miss, he pauses inbetween his sentences.

The Mr. Men Show

  • He was Little Miss Scary's assistant in the episodes The Dark and Up And Down. In the latter episode, he was her "bouncer" (someone who either allows or rejects guests from entering premises).
  • Despite his size, his legs are longer when wearing shoes, as seen in Physical, Mall, and Shoes.
  • His house has beams under it for support.
  • He was seen once without his hat in Sleep.
  • He was treated like an object when on a plane, shown in Flying and Eyeglasses.
  • He seems to like wearing Little Miss Scary's masks and scaring like her in the episode The Dark.
  • His bouncing annoys Mr. Grumpy more than anyone else.
  • His 2008 design looks exactly like Mr. Tickle, the only differences being that Mr. Bounce is a little smaller than Mr. Tickle, and Mr. Tickle is orange with a blue hat.
