Mr. Men Wiki

Mr. Clumsy, Head Butler is the 12th episode of the third season of Mr. Men and Little Miss. It was first broadcast on 20 January, 1997.


Mr. Clumsy, was trying to tidy up, but as he touches or breaks anything, Mr. Clumsy messes Fifi, and Mr. Mayor is really mad at him. So he was fired. He is then hired as head butler for Little Miss Star's party and is required to do housework for her. But she has no idea of what is in store despite hiring the accident-prone Mr. Clumsy. He struggles to make anything edible, ends up filling Mr. Snooty's hat and Little Miss Splendid's umbrella with dirt, and dirties Mr. Snooty's scarf, his actions make Little Miss Helpful sound like a better choice as a butler. He does manage to get Little Miss Splendid to leave after Little Miss Star requested Mr. Clumsy to put snails on her hat so she would get the part Mr. Snooty promised Little Miss Splendid over herself. Just as it seems things were going right for Little Miss Star, Mr. Snooty, finds his beautiful cream scarf covered with big grey stains and winds up covered in the dirt shoved in his hat! Something tells us that Mr. Clumsy won't be working for Little Miss Star anytime soon

  • Little Miss Fun is yellow in this episode instead of orange. Because she has her back to the audience the whole time, she is sometimes mistaken by the audience for one of the Little Miss Twins. Since her face isn't seen, the only distinguishable feature is her black hairs, the Little Miss Twins don't have any hair and in the second shot, She is back to her normal colour.
