  • This was the first series based on Mr. Men to be released in the United States.
  • Unlike the series before it, the episodes are more loosely based on the books.
    • In Little Miss Late, the dance she was late for is moved to the beginning instead of the end.
    • In Little Miss Naughty, Mr. Clever's role is replaced by Mr. Greedy, the part where she tries to trip Mr. Busy is replaced with her trying to scare Mr. Jelly, the tricks Mr. Impossible plays on her are changed and there is an extra bit with Mr. Mean where she goes to a restaurant called "Muddles" and sends to bill to him, to replace Mr. Bump.
    • Because of this, Mr. Bump only cameos in this and Mr. Clever only appears in Little Miss Trouble.
    • Unlike the books Mr. Worry appeared in 2 of the Little Miss stories, in Little Miss Naughty he replaces Mr. Small, in Little Miss Trouble, Mr. Worry is used to frame Mr. Small.
    • In Little Miss Bossy, Wilfred the wizard is traditionally human shaped and isn't referred to by his name.
    • Also in Little Miss Bossy, Mr. Nosey is replaced by Mr. Chatterbox, and Little Miss Sunshine replaced Mr. Happy.
    • Mr. Mischief and Mr. Dizzy appear in Little Miss Shy.
    • For reasons unknown, the worm and a snail appear in Little Miss Tiny.
    • Mr. Topsy-Turvy appears in Little Miss Late.
    • There is an added scene in Little Miss Helpful where she goes to see in the wizard‘s book how to shrink Mr. Tall, and it works! Mr. Small shows up and says Mr. Tall is as small as he is. When Miss Helpful tries to make him tall again, she forgets the magic spell.
    • Mr. Slow appears in Little Miss Scatterbrain.
    • In the book of Little Miss Magic, it is mentioned that Mr. Mean, Mr. Greedy, Little Miss Sunshine, Mr Quiet, Little Miss Plump and Little Miss Shy being tickled, unlike in the TV episode where they are shown.

  • In the 1983 cartoon, Little Miss Greedy has her original title, Little Miss Plump.
  • In the US dub, some of the dialogue is very different. For example, in Little Miss Trouble, in the UK version, when Walter sees her, he says "Oh watch it, here comes trouble!", in the US dub, he instead says "Uh oh, here comes trouble!", in addition, before the worm goes down into his hole in the UK version, he groans. In the US version, he simply says "Good-bye!".
  • This is the first time Mr. Tall became short.(The other times he became short was in Little Miss Splendid's Gift & A Surprise For Mr. Tall)
  • Three of the characters were angry in the 8th episode.
  • Mr. Forgetful, Mr. Fussy and Mr. Bounce appear during the ending song despite not appearing in any of the episodes themselves. The reason for this is because when the series was originally aired on the BBC, the Mr. Men shown on there were the ones that were mentioned on the song, despite Mr. Small also appearing in the song.
