The first edition of Mr. Dizzy

Mr. Dizzy lives in Cleverland, where everybody is clever except for him - until, one day, because a pig and an elephant take advantage of him, he wishes himself clever as he drinks from a wishing well, despite being unaware of its magical properties. He returns and the 2 ask him some more questions, but he gets all of them right, much to their surprise. To get back at the two, he asks the pig, 'What's fat and pink and goes Atishoo, Atishoo?' (This is replaced with 'Achoo! Achoo!' in the US edition.) The pig is flummoxed until Mr. Dizzy tickles the pig's nose, causing him to sneeze and say, 'Atishoo! Atishoo!' Next, he asks the elephant, 'What's large and grey and goes Dopit, Dopit?' The elephant is clueless until Mr. Dizzy ties a knot in the elephant's trunk, causing him to declare, 'Dopit! Dopit!' and, addressing the readers, 'I duppose doo dink dat's fuddy.'

Early publications of Mr. Dizzy depicted the Cleverland Bird smoking a cigar. This was reillustrated in the 1980's and all future publications

  • In earlier prints when Mr. Dizzy was published, he was dark brown instead of light brown. As of more recent publishing, he is light brown, although in some pages of more recent prints, he has appeared a medium brown. The reasons for his colour change is unknown.
  • Also in earlier prints of the book, the clever bird was standing on the branch of a tree and smoking a cigar. This was changed in 1990 to making him wear a university hat and carry a book.
  • Mr. Dizzy is stronger than Little Miss Trouble.
  • Despite His low intelligence, he makes up for it with his big heart.
