About him[]



Mr. Quiet in the books

Mr. Quiet lives in Loudland, where everybody and everything is too loud for him. Loudland would be suitable for Mr. Noisy, but not for Mr. Quiet. Mr. Quiet is scared. Whenever he tries to go shopping, he can only whisper what he wants, which results in the grocer, the milkman, the baker, and the butcher to shout "CAN'T HEAR YOU! NEXT PLEASE!" One day Mr. Quiet gets a letter from Mr. Happy to stay in Happyland, where Mr. Quiet gets a job in a library, and where the rule is to always be quiet. Mr. Quiet is so happy he laughs out loud.

The Mr. Men Show[]


Mr. Quiet in the Mr. Men Show

In the 2008 TV series, The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Quiet has an egg-shaped instead of round body, is normal sized instead of small like in the books, and his color has been changed from light mustard to baby blue. Three of his hairs are gone, and he now has a unibrow.

Like Mr. Bump, Little Miss Whoops, and Little Miss Calamity, he is accident prone. He has a taste for Asian culture, having a Zen garden and a collection of Ming vases. He lives in a small shack-like house next to Mr. Noisy. His voice is barely audible, which can cause confusion with some of the other characters. He is often blamed by people when he tries to speak out, but he can't. In the UK and US versions, he is voiced by Paul Greenberg (credited as Aaron Albertus) and Simon Greenall, respectively. He is first seen in "Physical".


General/book trivia[]

  • He is good friends with Little Miss Shy, since he said he wasn't shy anymore, but still fainted when she asked him to come to her house.
  • In the 1997 version of The Mr. Men Show, his voice is modeled off of the late Peter Lorre, albeit with a Spanish accent.
  • He works at the Happy Lending Library.
  • Loves to watch TV without sound.
  • In some vintage stuff, such as the Little Miss Magic cartoon, he lacks hair.

The Mr. Men Show trivia[]

  • Mr. Quiet's redesign was original going to be a green colour but was changed to baby blue.
  • His voice became more audible in the second season, although the other characters still often don't hear his voice clearly.
  • He had eyes with white sclera in "Flying", similar to Mr. Fussy's frightened eyes in "Amusement Park" and "Fair".
  • He once got a job as a librarian like in his original book, and liked it until it was learned that his coworkers were Little Miss Chatterbox and Little Miss Giggles.
  • Mr. Quiet is one of the two characters to have worn a towel, the other being Mr. Grumpy.
