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 light blue. Three of his hairs are gone, and he now has a unibrow. He also lives next door to Mr. Noisy in a small shack-like house with a zen garden. His voice is barely audible, which can cause confusion with some of the other characters. 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.


  • He got kicked out of the concert by Mr. Strong (Telephone).
  • He might have a crush on Little Miss Shy, since he said he wasn't shy anymore, but still fainted when she asked him to come to her house.
  • His voice in season 2's US version is more audible than usual, although the other characters may not hear his voice clearly.
  • His frightened eyes are seen in the episode (Flying) that compared to Mr. Sneeze, just like Mr. Fussy (Amusement Park, Fair).
  • In the 1997 version of the Mr. Men Show, he has an Italian-American or Mexican-American accent.
  • Like Mr. Bump, Little Miss Whoops, and Little Miss Calamity, he is also accident prone.
  • He may be of Asian descent, as he owns a zen garden, a collection of Ming vases and his house is a shack.
  • He is the only light blue character, but he is one of the many blue characters, the other are Mr. Bump, Mr. Grumpy, Mr. Tall, Little Miss Bossy, Little Miss Giggles, and Little Miss Whoops, Little Miss Star, Little Miss Shy, Little Miss Somersault, Little Miss Brainy, Mr. Daydream, Mr. Busy, Mr. Perfect, Mr. Mean, and Mr. Forgetful and he is the only character who turned blue, the others were always blue. In the books, he is one of the six light brown characters.
  • He lives next door to Mr. Noisy.
  • He is one of the few Characters who feel bad when Mr. Bump gets hurt.
  • He is one of the characters believed that Mr. Rude is acting rude and has bad manners.
  • He's one of the characters to be told to be quiet by Mr. Noisy, even though he didn't know what his name was
  • He once got a job as a librarian (like his book counterpart) in Library, and liked it until it was learned that his co-workers were Miss Chatterbox and Miss Giggles.
  • He's one of the 19 Mr. Men.
  • He has been seen with all characters (except Mr. Funny, Mr. Tall, and Miss Curious who haven't been seen with him so far)
  • He is often blamed by people when he tries to speak out, but he can't, so Mr. Happy does care about him.
  • He had a 5:00 shadow in Gifts and went to Mr. Nervous's Barber Shop to get a shave.
  • He is good friends with Little Miss Shy.
  • In several episodes such as Music, he says he wants to move away from Dillydale, but he is obviously still there, next time you see him again. Possible reasons:
  1. He always changes his mind later.
  2. He tries to leave, but always fails.
  3. He won't leave until after a few years have passed.
  • Mr. Quiet, at one point, wore full pajamas in Post Office. (Look closely at the catalog cover.)
  • Mr. Quiet is one of the 2 characters to have worn a towel, the other being Mr. Grumpy
  • He got covered in cement in Skyscrapers.He also hardened and was seen as a statue in a founatain with water coming out of his mouth later in the episode.
  • He has been slightly angry in episodes like Trees and Suprises,and angrier than slightly angry in Skyscrapers and Music.
  • He may have vomited in "Picnics".
  • Despite not liking noise, he didn't mind staying up all night to play drums with Mr. Noisy.
  • In The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Quiet was originally going to be green.
