Mr. Bounce was a rubber ball and 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
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. He is first seen in Physical.
- He was Little Miss Scary's assistant in the episodes The Dark and Up And Down.
- 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 danced like Mr. Grumpy in Dance.
- He is seen patting a goat in Fair.
- He is one of the four yellow characters. The other three are Mr. Happy, Little Miss Sunshine, and Little Miss Daredevil.
- He was seen once without his hat in Sleep.
- He's one of the many characters who may not care if Mr. Bump gets hurt.
- He was treated like an object when on a plane, shown in Flying and Eyeglasses.
- He doesn't care much if Mr. Rude is acting rude and has bad manners.
- He seems to like wearing Little Miss Scary's masks and scaring like her in the episode The Dark.
- His first line is "Wheee!" (Physical).
- He once said "You can never bounce too much." in Parties.
- In Mr. Men and Little Miss, his hat was red instead of pink.
- His bouncing annoys Mr. Grumpy more than anyone else.
- He sang a song called "The Boogies Got Me" in the episode, Music, but it got deleted in the UK because the song wasn't very popular.
- 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.
- In the original UK broadcast of Mr. Men and Little Miss, he pauses inbetween his sentences.
