Mr. Funny lived inside a large teapot. So he decided to go out for a funny drive. While he was driving along the road, a large pig laughed to see his car and a worm laughed as well. Eventually Mr. Funny came to some sign posts. One of them says "This way to the Zoo". Unfortunately all the animals at the zoo have colds. He ends up cheering up the zoo animals with his jokes and humour before driving home again. No one has a sense of humour like Mr. Funny.
Mr. Funny appears in Season 2 of The Mr. Men Show. He almost looks the same, but is a darker green, wear a bow tie. His hat is bent at the top, is a darker yellow and floats. His gloves and the daisy attached to his hat are gone.His nose is like Mr. Rude's, with the lines on it. The skits he is in are usually silent comedy sketches, similar to that of a mime and a clown. He is the only one to instead use sound language. Sometimes he is annoying to Mr. Grumpy. He only speaks in honks or his horn, similar to comedian Harpo Marx. He is first seen in Picnics.
- First Appearance: Picnics - He is only shown in the American version of this episode where he is shown having a picnic with Little Miss Giggles.

- He is the only dark lime green character, only he is a slightly darker shade of lime green than Mr. Nosey, but he is one of the four green characters, the other green characters are Mr. Lazy, Mr. Fussy and Mr. Nosey.
- He had 6 scenes that were all about him in the episodes, Sun & Moon, Sand & Surf, Picnics, Airports, Arts and Crafts and Machines.
- Unlike other characters who wear sneakers, his shoes are dark red and they are slightly larger than the other characters' sneakers because he is actually a clown.
- Mr. Funny's lack of speech in The Mr. Men Show is due to writer Kate Boutilier thinking he'd clash with Mr. Scatterbrain had he spoke traditional dialogue. His horn honking is inspired by comedian Harpo Marx.

- He's one of the many characters who got Mr. Bump hurt in the episode, "Machines".
- He is one of the Mr. Men and Little Misses that didn't care that Mr. Rude is acting rude and has bad manners.
- He was shown shouting "Surprise!" in the episode, Surprises. This episode may have been the only time he was shown to speak.
- He has been seen with all the characters, except Mr. Strong, though he was seen with Mr. Strong in the 90's episode, Mr. Funny puts on a show, Mr. Noisy, Little Miss Helpful, Mr. Happy, Little Miss Calamity, who makes no appearances in Season 2, Mr. Lazy, Little Miss Naughty, Mr. Nosey, Mr. Small, Little Miss Whoops, Mr. Stubborn, Mr. Scatterbrain, Little Miss Daredevil, Mr. Nervous, Little Miss Magic, Little Miss Bossy and Little Miss Curious who haven't been seen with him so far.

- He has black wavy hair.
- Amusement ride manufacturer Jolly Roger Ltd. created a Mr. Funny Kiddie Ride in 1995. The ride features Mr. Funny in his Shoe Car as it rocks back and forth to "He's so Funny" (Mr. Funny's theme). There were 2 versions of this ride, one had a longer audio loop and different soundbox.
