Mr. Men Wiki

Mr. Fussy Takes a Well Earned Break is the 15th episode of the second season of Mr. Men and Little Miss. It was first broadcast on 15 March, 1996.


Mr. Fussy is very fussy indeed. He brushes his teeth, trims his moustache, and combs his hair. He even combs the carpet to make sure it's perfect. Mr. Fussy also has a fussy parrot named Mr. Parrot. Today is an especially fussy day though. Mr. Fussy is going on a vacation to the Sunny Isles and has to get everything ready before the taxi arrives.

Mr. Fussy reads a letter he got from the mail, but gets the floor dirty because he forgot to wipe his feet. He proceeds to vacuum the mess he made only to nearly suck off the feathers of Mr. Parrot. He proceeds to cleans his dusty flower painting, but the flowers come right off! So Mr. Fussy had to paint new ones. All that's left is to put Mr. Parrot in his cage. Which proves to be a chore until Mr. Fussy threatens to leave him at home if he doesn't cooperate. Mr. Fussy is all packed and ready just as the taxi arrives to drive him to the airport, but Mr. Grumble had to pick up Mr. Messy as well and they ended up going to the same place for a whole month, much to Mr. Fussy's dismay.
